Cambridge Analytica/Facebook now blamed for Brexit, former employee blows the whistle

Local News

New allegations involving Cambridge Analytica, this time possibly linked to the Brexit Campaign in the UK.  London-based Cambridge Analytica is coming under scrutiny over its alleged misuse of the personal data of millions of Facebook users. 

Now an explosive allegation by the former Cambridge Analytica employee Christopher Wylie who says the Brexit Campaign may have cheated, and it may have swayed the 2016 vote.  “I think it is completely reasonable to say that there could have been a different outcome in the referendum, had there not been, in my view, cheating.”  Wylie is in London giving testimony to British politicians.

The country is incredibly divided over the divorce from the EU and today’s testimony will likely make it harder to bring both sides together.
