Mike Nellis is the CEO and Founder of Authentic, a digital consulting and fundraising company working with top-level Democratic and Progressive campaigns.  Mike is deeply concerned about the fundraising malpractices and scams used by Republican and Democratic campaigns to confuse seniors, low-information low-tech voters, and those eager to join a community of supporters of a campaign or cause.

Mike points out that many digital strategists and consultants take advantage of deceptive wording, misrepresentation, and even fraud to draw in donors. He is emphatic about not thinking of voters as an ATM machine. 

Mike also shines a light on campaigns that have treated voters with respect, and he emphasizes that candidates need to take proactive steps to run ethical fundraising campaigns.
