Chris Wilson is the head of WPA Intelligence, formerly known as WPA Opinion Research. The WP is Wilson Perkins, I believe, and he's the “W” in WPA. They worked very closely with AggregateIQ, from what I can tell from the GitLab files.
I believe if you spoke with WPA they would claim the situation was more like WPA hired AggregateIQ as developers. They worked very closely on phone applications. The Ephemeral project has heavy ties to WPA, in that some of the web-based files that would have been served up to people dialling in claimed that it was the WPA voter database. Clearly, WPA has a strong involvement with AIQ, with AIQ being either some sort of partner or a hired developer, but there is a relationship there that I believe should be looked at.
