Anonymous Crypto Interests Bombard Key Senator Sherrod Brown With Political Ads

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), the chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, is arguably the most important lawmaker currently standing in the way of a crypto regulation bill, and industry interests have paid for a new campaign in his own back yard to nudge him.

The brand new Cedar Innovation Foundation – a crypto-backed organization that won’t identify who is funding it, according to an official there – is pushing videos at younger voters in Ohio’s metro areas, which suggest the Securities and Exchange Commission run by Chair Gary Gensler is forcing technology jobs overseas and stifling innovation to favor his friends on Wall Street.

“Tell Sherrod Brown to stand up to Gary Gensler,” one of the ads implores. “Fight for Ohio jobs.”
