Leftist Nonprofit Announces $80 Million in Election Grants
From The Federalist. A leftist nonprofit group that funded the private takeover of government election offices during the 2020 presidential election just announced its new round of beneficiaries for the 2024 cycle.
The Center for Tech and Civic Life — one of two groups that funneled $328 million (colloquially termed “Zuckbucks“) from Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg to the blue counties of swing states to mobilize potential Democratic voters and swing the race for Joe Biden — has said it will distribute $80 million in election grants in the next five years. …
According to The Associated Press, the grants “will vary based on the size of each jurisdiction, from $50,000 for those with fewer than 5,000 registered voters to $3 million for those with more than 1 million voters.” There are hardly any restrictions on how the counties can spend the money, but there are also no publicly available details about what exactly they will use it for. …
Back in 2020, CTCL also divided its grants based on population — though not evenly per capita — handing the more populous, Democratic-dominated counties almost all the cash. According to the Capital Research Center, CTCL “consistently gave bigger grants and more money per capita to counties that voted for Biden.” For example, in Georgia, CTCL spent $1.41 per capita in Trump-leaning red counties and $5.33 in Biden-leaning blue ones. This discrepancy existed in all the major swing states during 2020. The Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty estimates CTCL grants added an extra 8,000 votes for Biden in Wisconsin.
While several states have since banned the private funding of government election offices in the wake of the “Zuckbucks” revelation, some states’ Democratic governors have instead vetoed legislation to that effect, including Michigan, North Carolina, and Wisconsin. Now certain counties in these states have been named recipients of CTCL’s 2024 grants.
Of particular note is the city of Madison, Wisconsin. One of the five most populous — and blue — cities in the Badger State, Madison was a key recipient of “ZuckBucks” in 2020 (of the $10 million CTCL sent Wisconsin in 2020, $8.5 million went to the five Democratic cities of Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, Kenosha, and Racine). But as I reported back in November, CTCL and election officials in Madison are still working closely together. …
