Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg donated $250 million to a group dedicated to turning out tens of thousands of new Democrat voters in Philadelphia.
According to a report at Just The News, Zuckerberg donated his millions to a group that is working to quadruple the number of voting places in heavily Democrat areas of Philly to massively grow the Democrat vote in the city.
The number of promised polling places is more than four times the 190 polling places opened during the city’s pandemic-affected primary earlier this year, and the promised turnout is estimated to be as many as 120,000 voters larger than the 2016 presidential election, which drew about 680,000 voters. About 80% of the vote went to Democrats in 2016 in the city.
“The Office of the City Commissioners understands CTCL’s interest in maximizing the number of polling locations and will work to identify over 800 locations,” states the city application seeking $10 million for the fall election.
Zuckerberg announced several weeks ago he has donated $250 million to CTCL to help local governments across the country hold elections this fall in the midst of the pandemic. He has since augmented that amount with another $100 million in recent days.
The money is being used to essentially privatize the polling and remove it from the hands of government officials where it legally belongs. Not only that, but these millions are only being spent in Democrat areas in counties across America.
“This privatization of elections undermines the integrity of the election by using government to play favorites,” Thomas More Society and its lead counsel Phill Kline told JTN. “Government targeting a demographic to increase turnout is the opposite side of the same coin as government targeting a demographic to suppress the vote.”
“Moreover, this is occurring as blue state governors have made it harder to vote with new COVID restrictions on in-person voting,” he added.
