Release: Liberty Counsel and WMTEK Christian donor databases (450 GB)
Over 100 databases of donors to Christian missionaries and to the Liberty Counsel hate group are available upon request
Liberty Counsel helped overturn Roe v. Wade, and have claimed to have prayed with Supreme Court justices. This release also includes more than 100 internal databases from mostly Christian missionary groups that use the same WMTEK software for customer relationship management (CRM). WMTEK develops software exclusively for non-profits that are supposedly Christian.
This collection includes about 450GB of databases once uncompressed, as well a git repositories and files found in the webroots of web servers. The data spans from 2015 to 2022 and includes PII for donors and supporters of these groups, as well as details about financial transactions. All together, these databases track hundreds of millions of dollars in donations to Christian groups.
The Liberty Counsel database is 25GB uncompressed, and includes 262,000 people, 44,000 who are donors.
Anonymous posts related to this hack used the hashtag #OperationJane.
The Intercept has written about the dataset:
The records show that 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations controlled by Liberty Counsel encouraged supporters to vote for former President Donald Trump despite IRS rules that prohibit such entities from directly or indirectly endorsing candidates for political office… In all, the data shows donations to the organizations totalling over $748 million from roughly 409,000 donors, the earliest dating to September 2015. It also includes private information like names, addresses, and phone numbers for about 1.3 million people.
Liberty Counsel: You first caught our attention with your litigation and lobbying against LGBTQ rights.
In fact, we first hacked you a full month before we found out about your involvement in overturning Roe vs. Wade. And then we hacked you some more. Noticing a worrying trend of far-right and anti-abortion activists aligning themselves with the evangelical christian movement, hiding their funding sources behind laws that allow church ministries to keep their donations secret.
We decided to bring about some much needed radical transparency by taking it upon ourselves to make your list of donors public.
Much like Liberty Counsel, these missionary groups (using WMTEK software) are able to hide their funding from the public behind church ministry secrecy laws. With the exploit we developed against Liberty Counsel, we were also able to hack all of WMTEK's other customers and bring radical transparency to the evangelical missionary movement.
