Protect Our Care
Carrk is also the deputy campaign director of Protect Our Care, an organization that lobbies against efforts to scale back or repeal Obamacare and advocates for increased government intervention in the health care market.  Protect Our Care has been associated with the “dark money” group the Sixteen Thirty Fund. 
In 2016, Carrk was a senior aide to Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign, working as research director. 
Carrk’s role on the campaign came to public attention after emails from the Clinton campaign were hacked (allegedly by or at the direction of officers of Russian military intelligence) and released by Wikileaks.  The emails showed that Carrk was tasked with conducting research on how Hillary Clinton’s closed-door speaking engagements with private corporations conflicted with her campaign positions. 
Opinions which Carrk flagged as conflicting with Clinton’s campaign messages included a speaking engagement at a Goldman Sachs-Black Rock event where she advocated for a Canadian style Government-run healthcare system and supported the Trans-Pacific Partnership proposed free-trade agreement, despite not supporting either position in her campaign platform.  Carrk also raised concerns regarding Clinton’s comments regarding being “out of touch” with the middle class.
