Per Fox Business (FBN), Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, his wife, and three voting rights groups were hit Thursday with legal complaints alleging malfeasance related to activities surrounding the 2020 election.
As this site reported in October 2021:
The Facebook guru’s donations paid for “temporary staffing and poll workers, which supported the infiltration of election offices by paid Democratic Party activists, coordinated through a complex web of left-leaning nonprofit organizations, social media platforms, and social media election influencers.”
They were precise regarding the geography of the money to be spent. For example, “CTCL boosted resources in Green Bay, a Democrat-heavy area, to $47 per voter, while rural counties typically stayed at the $4 mark.”
On the one hand, Zuckerberg’s strategy should receive kudos for creativity. It even used the same conservative principles used in Operation Warpspeed to help the Democrats. Think about a public/private partnership to swing the election. But elections should be unbiased and purely public. Zuckerberg’s creative strategy should frighten any American who believes in free and fair elections and the concept of one man, one vote.
(…)Other uses of the Zuckerberwereoney was demanding “the promotion of universal mail-in voting through suspending election laws, extending deadlines that favored mail-in over in-person voting, greatly expanding opportunities for ‘ballot curing’ expensive bulk mailings, and other lavish “community outreach” programs that were directed by private activists.”
It was used to escalate the use of unmonitored private drop boxes (creating major chain-of-custody issues). The boxes created opportunities for unusual “mail-in ballot electioneering,” the submission of “questionable post-election-day ballots, and illegal ballot harvesting.”
But now Zuckerberg may have to pay the piper:
The Center for Renewing America (CRA) filed two complaints — the first against Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan and the second against the groups Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL), Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR) and National Vote at Home Institute (NVAHI) — Thursday morning with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
Uh-ohgroupsse group are going to Facebook jail, and it’s time. At least since the 2016 ,election Zuckerberg’s social platform has conducted a purge of conservative websites (the Lid was included in th4 2018 and 2020 purges). The rationale for these putgre was to prevent conservatives from presenting their message. It will be interesting to see what they do to people suing them for cheating.
“It is beyond disgraceful to imagine federal taxpayers subsidizing the partisan preferences of billionaires who easily could have given to a Democrat super PAC in 2020,” the CRA said in a statement shared with FOX Business.
“But, of course, then they would not have been able to take a tax deduction, so they disguised the political nature of their donations and shuffled them through ‘charitable’ intermediaries, making ordinary Americans foot the bill,” the CRA continued.
On the bright side, Zuckerberg says 2020 was a one-time deal.
“As Mark and Priscilla made clear previously, their election infrastructure donation to help ensure that Americans could vote during the height of the pandemic was a one-time donation given the unprecedented nature of the crisis,” Ben LaBolt, a spokesperson for Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan, said. “They have no plans to repeat that donation.”
Of course, he’s the same guy who promises that his social; media platform is not biased.
The CRA noted that federal law prohibits individuals from making donations intended to illegitimately aid one political party over another.
The complaints said the IRS must deny any personal income tax exemptions collected by Zuckerberg and Chan for their donations to the CTCL, CEIR, and NVAHI during the 2020 election cycle. The CRA also requested that the IRS terminate the tax exemptions of the three groups.
I guess that’s the reason for Biden’s plan to hire 87,000 more IRS agents
When this lawsuit is over, it may convince people that the 2020 election wasn’t miscounted. Instead it was bought and paid for by Mark Zuckerberg.
