First reported by Far Left Watch, ride-sharing company Lyft has announced a partnership with an anti-Trump non-profit that will provide free rides to polling stations for Latino voters on election day.
“For underserved communities, we’ll provide rides free of cost through nonpartisan, nonprofit partners, including Voto Latino, local Urban League affiliates, and the National Federation of the Blind,” according to the company’s website.
Voto Latino is a demonstrably anti-Trump non-profit. According to an Open Secrets report, the group spent all $1.3 million in its coffers against President Donald J. Trump’s campaign in 2016.
Unsurprisingly, the group has worked on behalf of sanctuary cities across the country.
“Today the House will vote on two key pieces of legislation that would ramp up President Trump’s mass deportation agenda and harm public safety,” Voto Latino wrote in a 2017 press release. “The bills introduced by Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), “Kate’s Law” and the “No Sanctuary for Criminals Act,” are unconstitutional, criminalize immigrants and make it difficult for local law enforcement to keep communities safe. The laws would implement more severe penalties for illegal re-re-entry and withhold millions in federal funding from cities and states that fail to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.”
The group also fights against Voter ID laws. Americans are constantly told that illegal immigrants do not vote – that’s just a conspiracy theory peddled by “racist” Republicans. So why would a Latino voting non-profit spend resources fighting such laws?
“Voto Latino, the leading non-profit organization empowering American Latino millennials by engaging them through civic media, released the following statement by President and CEO Maria Teresa Kumar on today’s decision by a federal appeals court striking down North Carolina’s discriminatory voter ID law, the first enacted after the Shelby v. Holder Supreme Court decision in 2013,” according to a 2016 press release.
Lyft will lose money on November 6, as they will still have to pay their drivers for the rides that they will give away for free. Essentially, they are donating company profits to a Democrat non-profit.
Big League Politics reached out to Lyft to see if they will report their free rides to polls as in-kind contributions to the Democrat Party.
The company declined to comment.

DESPERATION: Never Trumpers Float Romney/Bloomberg as ‘the Unity Ticket America Deserves’
How pathetic are these guys?
The “Never Trump” brain trust over at The Bulwark has unveiled their antidote to stop the President they hate so much in this year’s election: a “unity ticket” consisting of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) as a presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as his running mate.
Author Neal Simon made the argument that this potential third-party ticket would appeal to independents in an op/ed published on Monday.
“Senator Romney’s entrance into the presidential race wouldn’t just give the vital center of the electorate a home—it would stand a chance to break a system that is stacked against independents and third party candidates,” Simon argued.
He compared Romney’s potential to that of French President Emmanuel Macron, the reviled ruler who has populist Yellow Vest protesters rioting against his unpopular style of governance every weekend.
“And as Emmanuel Macron showed in France, standing up a new party and winning a presidential election in one motion is not impossible,” Simon wrote.
Simon posited that by putting Bloomberg on his ticket as Vice President, Romney could essentially buy the election, which is what Bloomberg is basically trying to do right now with his run for the Democratic presidential nomination.
“A Romney-Bloomberg ticket would be a first in modern American politics: A bipartisan unity ticket running under the banner of an independent third party,” he wrote.
Simon’s premise is predicated off of an assumption that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) will win the Democrat presidential nomination. He believes that populism taking over the Republican and Democrat parties would open the door for a centrist revolution that could be led by Romney and Bloomberg.
“It would give both disgruntled Republicans who feel their party has become lost in Trump’s personality cult and Democrats who feel their party is lurching too far left towards a socialist revolution a voice on the ballot that reflects a popular idea of how the country should be run,” he concluded.
Simon, who was a failed independent candidate in the state of Maryland for the U.S. Senate in 2018, recently published a book titled, “Contract to Unite America: Ten Reforms to Reclaim Our Republic.” He is using the words of George Washington in his manifesto to defeat the new age of populist politics and return to the days of old.
“Capitalizing on personal insight derived from Simon’s political campaign along with extensive research, Contract to Unite America provides specific, practical solutions for an improved government and a better tomorrow,” Simon’s book description reads.
Unfortunately for Simon and the “Bulwark” neocons, the public has had enough of status quo politicians and does not want to return to the George W. Bush era. The dream ticket of Romney/Bloomberg is not likely to come to fruition.
