A left-wing election advocacy group funded by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg sent hundreds of millions of dollars to election offices nationwide, according to a Capital Research Center report Thursday.
The conservative think tank said the Center for Tech and Civic Life doled out the money in “an effort to privatize the 2020 election and put Joe Biden in the White House” in place of President Donald Trump.
The CTCL, according to its 2020 IRS Form 990 filing, distributed more than $332 million in grants. A significant portion of the money, according to the CRC, went to “elections offices across the country.”
“We’re still combing through them, but it’s already clear that our key findings from nine state reports earlier this year — Arizona and Nevada, Georgia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Texas, Michigan and Wisconsin, and Virginia — will be confirmed in the coming weeks,” CRC researchers Parker Thayer and Hayden Ludwig wrote in their report.
The CTCL describes itself on its website as “a team of civic technologists, trainers, researchers, election administration and data experts working to foster a more informed and engaged democracy, and helping to modernize U.S. elections.”
