Did Mark Zuckerberg's $350M Contribution to 'Safe Elections' Project 'Improperly Influence 2020 Presidential Election'?

A report by the election integrity watchdog Amistad Project alleges that Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and his wife made $419.5 million in contributions to non-profit organizations during the 2020 election cycle, including $350 million to the “Safe Elections” Project of the Center for Technology and Civic Life, that “improperly influence[d] the 2020 presidential election on behalf of one particular candidate and party,” as reported by Breitbart on Friday.


In the report’s executive summary, Project Director Phill Kline said Zuckerberg and other high-tech interests, and activist organizations created a two-tiered election system.

“The 2020 presidential election witnessed an unprecedented and coordinated public-private partnership to improperly influence the 2020 presidential election on behalf of one particular candidate and party.

“Funded by hundreds of millions of dollars from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and other high-tech interests, activist organizations created a two-tiered election system that treated voters differently depending on whether they lived in Democrat or Republican strongholds.”

The report identified three “key actions” taken to create the alleged two-tier system.

Private monies dictated city and county election management contrary to both federal law and state election plans endorsed and developed by state legislatures with authority granted by the United States Constitution.

Executive officials in swing states facilitated, through unique and novel contracts, the sharing of private and sensitive information about citizens within those states with private interests, some whom actively promote leftist candidates and agendas.

Swing state governors also started issuing emergency executive orders shutting down in-person voting while pouring new state resources into encouraging persons to vote in advance. Polling data revealed this coordinated assault on in-person voting generally favored Democrat Party voters who preferred to vote in advance, while placing Republicans, who preferred to vote in person, at a disadvantage.

These actions represent the beginning of the formation of a two-tier election system favoring one demographic while disadvantaging another demographic.


Zuckerberg has long lied denied charges of political bias in the Gestapo tactics “policing” of Facebook, including, incredulously, denying bias against Donald Trump.

Speaking of which, on a personal note, I have been a frequent inmate of “Facebook jail” over the years, most often for political memes and commentary directed at the hypocrisy of the Left (which knows no bounds), but never for misreporting facts, conveying “fake news,” using vile language, or demonstrably violating Facebook’s “code of conduct,” or whatever the hell Zuck & Co. call it.

During a press conference about the Amistad report, Kline said “the mainstream media has also tried to censor this evidence [contained in the report], adding, “America understands that there are serious problems with this election. This effectively is a shadow government running our elections.”

He was even more direct in his statement accompanying the report.

“This network pumped hundreds of millions of dollars into local election systems using the COVID crisis as a pretense. Our report proves that in reality, it was nothing more than a naked attempt to purchase an election.

“‘Zuckerbucks’ and local election officials invited a billionaire into the consolidated ballot counting centers while kicking out the American people.”


As Donald Trump himself has said, allegations of election fraud are important for reasons beyond his presidency; principally future elections, which Kline echoed in his statement.

“This report paints a clear picture of a cabal of billionaires and activists using their wealth to subvert, control, and fundamentally alter the electoral system itself. We must act now to prevent such privatized elections in the future. The American public deserves transparent and fair elections, not lawless elections directed by powerful private interests.

“In addition to Zuckerberg, the main foundations funding the effort to subvert the electoral system were The Democracy Fund, New Venture Fund, Skoll Foundation, and Knight Foundation, according to the report. Key nonprofits involved in distributing the money include CTCL, the Center for [Election] Innovation Research, the Center for Civic Design, the National Vote at Home Institute, the Center for Secure and Modern Elections, and Rock the Vote.

“The report demonstrates that funding from nonprofits was especially unnecessary in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, as the federal government had already provided sufficient funding through both the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) and the CARES Act.

As for the $350 million chunk of the Zuckerbergs’ total 2020 election cycle contributions of $419 million, here’s where that allegedly went, as noted by Breitbart:


The report focused heavily on how the CTCL used the $350 million donated to the 501 (c) (3) by Mark Zuckerberg and his wife between September 1, 2020, and October 21, 2020, particularly in urban areas in four key battleground states: Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.

What a “shocking” revelation, huh? Please.

Final thoughts.

To suggest that the political biases of Twitter’s Jack Dorsey, Google’s Sundar Pichai, and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg do not determine the strings their hundreds of millions if not billions of dollars in political contributions pull and the buttons they push, not to mention the content they push and the content they suppress on their respective platforms, is to deny reality. Laughingly so — yet this is exactly what they want you to believe.

Perhaps even worse, the sheer, smug audacity with which they deny it is not only defiantly obscene; it is an omen of the danger facing America in the future — not only as it relates to presidential elections, but also to far more.

Oh, I almost forgot.

As Breitbart reported, The Zuckerberg-funded CTCL announced last month that it will provide even more funding to local counties and cities in Georgia in advance of the January 5 U.S. Senate runoffs in the state. Go figure.
