Hundreds of millions pumped into swing states to 'undermine' system
More than half-a-billion dollars -- including $400 million from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg -- was injected into elections in key swing states, "causing havoc, confusion and lawlessness" that tipped the election in Joe Biden's favor, contends a report released Wednesday.
At a press conference in Arlington, Virginia, the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society said the report exposes "a dark money apparatus of 10 nonprofit organizations funded by five foundations whose intent was to fundamentally undermine the electoral system."
The money funded the non-profit Center for Tech and Civic Life, which supported more than 2,500 election offices nationwide to run elections amid the coronavirus pandemic. Lawsuits filed by Amistad charged that the acceptance of funding from a private group by cities and counties violates state and federal law.
The report, "The Legitimacy and Effect of Private Funding in Federal and State Election Processes," alleges the donations targeted Democratic strongholds in swing states.
