Remember the Zuck Bucks controversy of 2020? Here we go again. In the name of supporting the infrastructure of “democracy,” a Democrat-aligned Big Money partisanship is attempting to make its way into local election offices across America in 2024.
Zuck Bucks 2.0
In the last presidential race, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg reportedly bankrolled “a private army of leftists parachuting into boards of election in swing states,” to quote Liberty Nation Senior Political Analyst Tim Donner. About half the country then moved to ban such large infusions of private funding. But the Zuck Bucks are back, thanks to a new federal grant program.“On [Jan. 17], in an email sent to a network of election officials and nonprofit organizations, the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) announced it would begin efforts to facilitate applications to a massive federal government grant program administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA),” William Doyle at The Federalist reported Jan. 19 in an eye-opening expose.
“This program could potentially funnel more than $700 million to election offices during the 2024 election under the auspices of CTCL officials and their partners in the nonprofit world of left-wing election activism,” Doyle writes. “CTCL is the organization that funneled hundreds of millions of Mark Zuckerberg’s dollars into key election offices to increase Democrat turnout in the 2020 election.”
