Report: Zuckerberg 'dark money' caused election
'chaos' 1


More than half-a-billion dollars — including $400 million from
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg — was injected into elections in key
swing states, “causing havoc, confusion and lawlessness” that
tipped the election in Joe Biden’s favor, contends a report
released Wednesday.

At a press conference in Arlington, Virginia, the Amistad
Project of the Thomas More Society said the report exposes “a dark
money apparatus of 10 nonprofit organizations funded by five
foundations whose intent was to fundamentally undermine the
electoral system.”

The money funded the non-profit Center for Tech and Civic Life,
which supported more than 2,500 election offices nationwide to run
elections amid the coronavirus pandemic. Lawsuits filed by Amistad
charged that the acceptance of funding from a private group by
cities and counties violates state and federal law.

The report, “The
Legitimacy and Effect of Private Funding in Federal and State
Election Processes,”
alleges the donations targeted Democratic
strongholds in swing states.

Amistad said the money was used to pay “ballot harvesters” and
political activists to “facilitate the movement of hundreds of
thousands of questionable ballots in secrecy without legally
required bi-partisan observation.”

Amistad contends, for example, the Zuckerberg money allowed
Philadelphia and other Democratic-majority jurisdictions in
Pennsylvania to set up a system allowing voters to “cure” mistakes
on ballots while voters in Republican-majority jurisdictions didn’t
have that option.

The money “violated state election laws and resulted in an
unequal distribution of funding that deprived voters of both due
process and equal protection,” Amistad said in a press release.

Phill Kline, director of the Amistad Project, presented the
findings on Wednesday.

“This, effectively, is a shadow government running our
elections,” he said. “A half a billion dollars into the hands of
state and local officials who, in turn, allowed those private
organizations, and private interests, to have access to sensitive
and private information of American citizens that was of value to
political parties, and monetized for interests on the left.”

Kline, who has filed lawsuits in several states challenging the
2020 results, said the funding bypassed state protocols and laws,
disrupting the electoral process and contributing to a loss of
confidence in the electoral system.

He said Zuckerberg “paid for the election judges; he purchased
the drop boxes — contrary to state law; he ordered the
consolidation of the counting facilities; Zuckerberg paid the local
officials who boarded up the windows to the counting room;
Zuckerberg money purchased the machines, Dominion and otherwise;
and Zuckerberg money was contributed to secretaries of state, like
Michigan’s Jocelyn Benson, who has fought transparency in this

The report, he said, demonstrates that the funding was not

The federal government, he said, had already provided funding
for election workers through both the Help America Vote Act and the
CARES Act, much of which remains unspent.
