President Trump slammed Meta CEO and founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, in a statement posted to Truth Social this week, highlighting the corruption of the American election system.
Trump’s remarks were written as a response to an article from Fox News that reported that Zuckerberg had allegedly violated a Georgia state law by giving $2 million to the DeKalb County Board of Registration & Elections via the U.S. Alliance for Election Excellence.
“He cheated on the Election(s),” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “The whole system is RIGGED. Why isn’t he being prosecuted? The Democrats only know how to cheat. America isn’t going to take it much longer!”
According to the Fox News report, the U.S. Alliance for Election Excellence is a Zuckerberg-funded organization that seems to be carrying on the non-profit work that the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) was previously doing in 2020. This non-profit was also closely linked to Zuckerberg during the 2020 presidential election.
Per RSBN, the DeKalb County Board of Registration & Elections was recently awarded $2 million by the Alliance. The new organization is allegedly a continuation of the “scheme” that ran through the CTCL, per the watchdog group, Honest Elections Project.
Via the Fox News report, the CTCL raked in a $250 million donation from Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla, in 2020 to provide grants to election boards in the United States ahead of the presidential election.
However, the purpose and aim of this funding has come under intense scrutiny by proponents of election integrity.
The U.S. Alliance for Election Integrity is a newly minted organization that launched in 2022. Fox News reported that the Honest Elections Project Executive Director Jason Snead told the outlet that the Alliance’s aim was “to get around those bans on private funding by doing either what they did in DeKalb County…or by doing what I think they feel is even more important work, which is to pump influence into these offices.”
On Feb. 22, Snead requested that Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr, along with Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and the State Election Board open an investigation into the DeKalb County Board of Registration & Elections.
Via a press statement, Snead said:
“Allowing outside special interests to pump millions of dollars of private funding into election offices erodes the public’s trust in election administration, which is why Georgia and two-dozen other states have restricted private election funding over the last two years. DeKalb County and the U.S. Alliance for Election Excellence’s brazen defiance of Georgia election law is a slap in the face to voters and their legislators. The Honest Elections Project urges Attorney General Carr, Secretary of State Raffensperger, and the State Election Board open an investigation and take the proper steps to address this clear attempt by DeKalb County to evade Georgia law.”
