As the 2024 election approaches, people who are aware of irregularities in voting and money pushed into voting are demanding for investigations and accountability prior to the next election.
Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta, made substantial contributions during the past election, and these contributions have been questioned following the election.
Given that the internet mogul’s social media platform censored right-wing viewpoints as part of its “misinformation” campaign, it is not surprise that his political donations would be closely monitored and evaluated.
The Daily Mail states that the majority of Zuckerberg’s wealth was given through a neutral charity with leftist roots.
Given the unique nature of the issue, the contribution was a one-time gift, according to a representative for Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan.
“During the 2020 election, Mark and Priscilla made a one-time donation to help address the unprecedented challenge of ensuring Americans could safely vote during the height of the pandemic.” Brian Baker told FOX.
But not everyone, including former President Donald Trump, accepts this explanation. Last year, he stated at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida that something was awry with the amount of money Zuckerberg gave to organisations that supported the job of election administrators.
“Let’s do a full forensic audit of the $417 million given by Mark Zuckerberg – who used to come to the White House and kiss my ass – they spent to take over local election offices in key Democrat counties,” Trump said in February 2022.
“And I believe you’re going to be hearing a lot of it. You know if you’re a person that wants to make a contribution you’re allowed to give less than $6,000 otherwise they put you in jail,” Trump explained.
“He gave $417 million. What the hell is going on?” he demanded to know.
“These people – they call them mules – ballots in Georgia and other swing states were trafficked and sold on an unprecedented scale and the brutality … it was just incredible what took place that we have it on tape,” he said.
According to the Daily Mail, a watchdog organization, the Honest Elections Project, has called for a complete inquiry into the DeKalb County Board of Registration and Elections for what they describe a ‘flagrant and egregious’ breach of a statutory restriction on corporate donations.
The ban was put in place after accusations that donors used their money to push their left-wing agenda ahead of the 2020 elections. The HEP is now calling for the state attorney general, secretary of state and state elections board to set up a probe and investigate the cash donation.
“We’re now fairly well convinced this is an attempt to do two things: to get around those bans on private funding by doing either what they did in DeKalb County, by looking for loopholes and end-a rounds, doing what they can to get money into these offices; or by doing what I think they feel is even more important work, which is to pump influence into these offices,” Honest Elections Project Executive Director Jason Snead told Fox News.
“They are trying to gather data and reshape the way these offices function so that they essentially become left-wing outposts for progressive voting reform. All of what they do is a ruse in order to get into these offices and accomplish that goal.”

Part of the funding which came in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic helped to help jurisdictions deal with the pandemic by providing ballot drop boxes, voting equipment, additional manpower, protective gear for poll workers and public education campaigns on new voting methods, among other expenses.
