"Russian Oligarch’s Cousin Funneled Cash to N.Y. Politician" - Daily Beast

"Andrew Intrater, money manager to Russian Viktor Vekselberg, gave $56,100 to committees tied to Rep.-elect George Devolder-Santos, who called Ukraine “totalitarian.”

How do you follow money that's influencing elections? Especially when it is routed through different groups? Use a network map. Follow the rubles and see if you can find:

  • Where did the money to pay Stormy Daniels hush money come from?
  • What's similar between the Santos and Trump 2016 campaigns?
  • Which Russian oligarch's yacht was recently seized?
  • How much did the Nasau County Republican Party get from Intrater?
  • What did George Santos tweet supporting Putin's invasion of Ukraine?

Santos roots for Putin

“It’s not like Ukraine is a great democracy. It’s a totalitarian regime. They’re not a great bastion of freedom,” said Santos. He has insisted that Ukraine “welcomed the Russians into their provinces”—an apparent reference to President Vladimir Putin’s 2014 invasion to prop up rogue separatist parties—and that Ukrainians in the east “feel more Russian than Ukrainian,” even though every single Ukrainian province overwhelmingly voted for independence in 1991.

It was not the first time Devolder-Santos had parroted Kremlin talking points. In the weeks before Putin’s brutalblundering attack upon his western neighbor, the candidate repeatedly took to Twitter to accuse President Joe Biden of plotting to “start a war” with Russia and deploy American troops to Ukraine. - Daily Beast

Network Maps make it easier to expose wrong doing

Bad actors don't want to conceal their actions. Dark money is routed through different groups to make it harder to follow. Information is scattered across different websites, buried in large documents. People are busy and have little patience in doing much research. How can information be collected, organized and shared so it is easier to understand?

Network maps put the pieces together in an easy to use visual interface. This map created with the free Kumu app is interactive and easily shared with this link. It can be read on a phone, tablet or laptop. TheyThis map for instance provides a lot of information to make it easier to follow the rubles behind George Santos.
