A tech firm run by Lisa Kaplan has won a major contract from the Department of Defense worth $72,321.
Kaplan is notoriously known for her role as a “disinformation” research expert who agreed with censoring and banning the Hunter Biden laptop story in 2020.
At the time, Twitter wrongfully labeled the story “false” about Hunter’s laptop.
Kaplan praised Twitter for “addressing disinformation, making it so that people can’t share a link known to be false.”
Kaplan’s firm, LCK Strategies, also received another taxpayer-funded contract worth $49,328 in 2021 to help stop the spread of “misinformation.” Her company attempted to build a machine learning tool to “mitigate” disinformation.
“The Defense Department in May inked a contract with a tech firm run by Lisa Kaplan, a disinformation researcher who said Twitter’s decision to block links to the New York Post’s October 2020 story about the troubled first son was a ‘good move,'” the report found.
“On Twitter and in the press at the time, Kaplan applauded what she called the social media giant’s ‘efforts … to address disinformation, making it so that people can’t share a link known to be false.'”
LCK Strategies was launched by Kaplan in 2019. It also operates under the name Alethea Group.
Kaplan argued the Hunter Biden laptop story was disinformation “came from thin air.”
Former New York Post reporter Emma-Jo Morris broke the Hunter Biden story in 2020, just months before the presidential election.
Left-wing “fact-checkers” instantly smeared the report as “disinformation.”
The FBI was aware that the laptop was authenticated and belonged to Hunter Biden, but refused to alert tech companies to this fact.
