Why are county taxpayers paying a firm that specializes in influence operations for our upcoming election?
Here is the evidence:
Fors Marsh was awarded a no-bid contract on May 5th, 2022 for “analysis and evaluation” of the primary election. Fors Marsh specialize “in the business of measuring, understanding, and influencing the way people think and make decisions” according to their site.
The Forsh Marsh group clientele list consists of:

Fors Marsh wrote extensively about the 2020 Presidential Election, you can read the article on their site: Coronavirus added to the long list of the *threats to the electoral process*
Sean Marsh, founder:
Background in psychological human resource for the US Army.
Dr. Michael Karim:
DoD Behaviorial Studies….
Fors Marsh also received a contract from DHS for $150 million from DHS to bring “Vaccine Awareness” to the country. The vaccine outreach to these consulting groups seems to have been quite lucrative in federal funds? Remember the $11 million Lina Hidalgo and staffers got busted for alleged bid-rigging?
FMG’s involvement with our election through Federal Contracts:
Fors Marsh Group (FMG) has won a competitive multi-year agreement from the United States Election Assistance Commission (EAC). Under this contract award, FMG will assist the Election Assistance Commission to improve election administration and voter experiences across the United States. FMG will apply its expertise in developing and fielding national surveys, as well as leveraging innovative solutions, to reach hard-to-reach stakeholders. This work will support the 2018 and 2020 iterations of the Election Administration and Voting Survey (EAVS)—the most comprehensive survey about election administration in the United States—and the Election Administration Policy Survey.
FMG was awarded a contract through the Election Assistance Commission in 2018
In 2016, the EAC, with FMG’s support, improved the EAVS in three ways: (1) by increasing data quality, accuracy, and completeness; (2) by streamlining the data collection process and improving customer service to make it easier for election officials to submit data; and (3) by making data more meaningful and easier to use by election officials, government agencies, academics, and other groups interested in election administration. Under this new BPA contract, FMG will improve data collection tools, trainings, and instruction, and will develop new materials to better serve those who use EAVS data.
The Forsh Marsh Group was rewarded $300 million for “Advertising Services” through the NIH regarding messaging over “COVID Public Health”
The $250 million dollar contract, was birthed from an idea followed from a private Zoom call Dr. Anthony Fauci had earlier this year with some 30 celebrities. The celebrities were allowed to ask Fauci anything they wanted on the call, which lasted more than an hour.
Why is the County employing a marketing group that has extensive backgrounds with psychological and behavioral studies matched with data analysis?
This was authorized as a sole source procurement with no competition?! This is insanity. This stinks of an inside boondoggle for a political crone. Does FMG have ties to any of the Houston Dem candidates or just through the DNC? There has to be a thread there to pull.
I also love that these guys have work evaluating DOD recruitment. Do you really need a PHD to see that the politicization of the military and the vax debacle has run off legions of able and experienced soldiers? Maybe Soy Karim is putting recommendations in play to weaken America? Everything woke turns to.....
This is scary. Harris County is now using military Psychological Operations, or PSYOP, against the citizens. PSYOP is such a powerful weapon, that the military is prohibited from using it on their own service members. The Dems have progressed from giving kickbacks to their local cronies to calling in the pros from inside the DC beltway.
