A voting integrity group, led by former GOP senator Kelly Loeffler, is demanding transparency regarding the $ 5.6 million donated by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to Georgia’s Secretary of State last year, which was used in the highly controversial 2020 presidential election.
Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan spent a total of $ 45 million in Georgia during the 2020 election cycle, which included the fall of the Senate in January 2021, and a watchdog group reported in June that it was noticeable boosted Democrat turnout in Peach State.
HEMINGWAY: MARK ZUCKERBERG QUIETLY FINANCED TAKEOVER OF STATE RESOURCES TO HELP DEMOCRATS IN THE 2020 ELECTION
The Foundation for Government Accountability claims that the grant money provided through the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL), in Georgia and across the country, was heavily weighted toward democratically oriented counties. While billed as an election safety supplement during the coronavirus pandemic, only a small portion in any of the states examined by the fund was used for personal protective equipment.
CTCL gave about four times more in the Zuckerberg-funded grants to blue counties in Georgia that it gave to red counties, according to FGA analysis.
MARK ZUCKERBERG CASH DISCREETLY LEAKED TO THE EXTREME TO THE LEFT DECLARATION
For the 2020 election, CTCL provided about $ 29 million in grants to counties in Georgia, which Biden won, at a rate of $ 7.13 per. registered voter. In contrast, the center provided $ 2.3 million in grants – an average of $ 1.91 per year. registered voter – to counties that Trump won. The counties that got the most in the run-up to the presidential election were Fulton, Cobb and DeKalb.
“Zuckerberg funding is an unprecedented example of using government employees and government resources to put the finger on the scale to influence the election result,” Tarren Bragdon, executive director of the Foundation for Government Accountability, told Fox News. “It would be like giving private money to police departments to get officers to stop more in certain neighborhoods compared to other neighborhoods. It would be like giving money to the tax department to do increased audits in certain zip codes or neighborhoods versus other neighborhoods. . “
