Scoop: Steve Bannon used cell-phone location data for people who had been inside Roman Catholic chur [View all]

Scoop: Steve Bannon used cell-phone location data for people who had been inside Roman Catholic churches in Dubuque, Iowa, in 2018 to target them with get-out-the-vote ads.




Reminder ; Bannon was serving on the board of Cambridge Analytica in 2016 before serving on the Trump campaign. Mike Flynn was an advisor to C/Analytica. Kusher & Don Jr ran Parscale's fake news/microtargeting op. Manafort gave Ru internal polling (targeting data)




Catholics in Iowa went to church. Steve Bannon tracked their phones.

Campaigns have been using cell-phone location data for years. Did Bannon take it too far?


Steve Bannon and the conservative group CatholicVote used cell-phone location data for people who had been inside Roman Catholic churches in Dubuque, Iowa, in 2018 to target them with get-out-the-vote ads, ThinkProgress has learned.

Bannon, a former senior White House aide, made the claim in a deleted scene from the new documentary about him, The Brink. This scene has not been previously published.

“If your phone’s ever been in a Catholic church, it’s amazing, they got this data,” Bannon told director Alison Klayman as they sat in his Washington, D.C., home on the eve of the 2018 midterm elections.

“Literally, they can tell who’s been in a Catholic church and how frequently,” Bannon added. “And they got it triaged.”
