(ConservativeUnit.com)- According to a new 39-page report published by the Amistad Project at the Thomas More Society, social media giant Facebook used hundreds of millions of dollars of its resources to violate election laws and undermine the 2020 presidential election.
The Thomas More Society, which is a national constitutional litigation organization, described in the report for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg gave $500 million to election officials. That money, they claim, was then used to treat voters unequally – a violation of the law – which favored Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden in battleground states and key cities.
Most of these funds, the report explains, was directed to the nonprofit organization the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL). The group was founded by members of a progressive left-wing nonprofit organization called the New Organizing Institute.
Earlier in the year, the CTCL reportedly started “sending agents into states to recruit certain Democrat strongholds to prepare grants requesting monies” from the new fund.
An example was given of Cory Mason, the Mayor of Racine, Wisconsin. Mason received $100,000 to help recruit four other cities to take part in the project, and once recruited, the five cities submitted a new plan to use the funds and received a total of $6.3 million to set about implementing that plan.
What was pitched as a voter mobilization effort, however, appeared to be something much more sinister. It became the privatization of elections which, the report said, “undermines the Help America Vote Act (HAVA), which requires state election plans to be submitted to federal officials and approved and requires respect for equal protection by making all resources available equally to all voters.”
The report then details just how unequal the use of funds were between Democrat and Republican areas.
“The provision of Zuckerberg-CTCL funds allowed these Democrat strongholds to spend roughly $47 per voter, compared to $4 to $7 per voter in traditionally Republican areas of the state. Moreover, this recruiting of targeted jurisdictions for specific government action and funding runs contrary to legislative election plans and invites government to play favorites in the election process,” it explains.
Phill Kline, who leads the Amistad Project, said during a Virginia press conference that there is a “shadow government running our elections.”
“Government has the core responsibility of managing elections,” he said. “We don’t put out elections for bid. We don’t have elections brought to you by Coca Cola. It is government’s job to manage elections, and it must do so without a thumb on the scale.”
Can you imagine the outrage if Big Tech was controlled by Republicans, and this kind of election interference was used to re-elect President Donald Trump?
