Parler’s CEO Mark Meckler wants to start a states' convention that would allow George Soros to rewrite the U.S. constitution.
On February 21, 2021, the National File published an article called “REVEALED: Parler’s New CEO Wants Convention That Would Let George Soros Rewrite The Constitution.” It alleges that Mark Meckler has ties to an organization that is coordinating with George Soros to rewrite the constitution.
This article spread on social media.
Misbar’s investigation found that there is no evidence to support the claim. The organization Meckler is in charge of is Convention of States Action (COSAction). Their aim is to get the states together, as per article V of the constitution, to introduce the 28th amendment, which can be written to limit the powers of the federal government.
The National File’s article connects COSAction to George Soros through some questionable means. Their primary way of doing so is by citing an article from the New American (although the National File mistakenly calls it the “New Republican”) that talks about an entirely different organization: Wolf-Pac.
Wolf-Pac is another organization that has a similar goal to COSAction. They also want to use article V of the constitution to implement a 28th amendment. Unlike COSAction’s use of the 28th amendment, Wolf-Pac’s ideal 28th amendment would try to ensure the security of future elections (what this implies or how it will be conducted is vague). Besides using similar means to achieve their goals, COSAction and Wolf-Pac have no relation to one another, and as seen from their respective websites, certainly no connection to Soros.
If anything, both groups appear to be staunchly anti-Soros. Because of the dubious ties and lack of evidence, we rate this claim as false.
