Wisconsin lawmakers are mulling over a constitutional ban that would affect Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, prohibiting him from privately donating to election operations in the state, according to a report from Just the News.
Zuckerberg, who has been under intense scrutiny for donating millions of dollars to Wisconsin cities during the 2020 presidential election, is also being formally investigated by the state Senate for allegedly funneling $419.5 million into a non-profit called the Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL).
Additionally, the CTCL, in cohesion with the Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR), donated those funds to election offices in Wisconsin, according to reports. This massive funding, as well as its targeted donation to election offices across the state, have drawn the suspicions of voters and lawmakers alike.
In fact, former Justice Michael Gableman, who is overseeing the 2020 Wisconsin election review investigation, stated that, “It’s very clear that Mark Zuckerberg’s goal was to defeat Donald Trump and elect Joe Biden.”
In light of Zuckerberg’s dubious donations to Wisconsin’s election system, Just the News reports that the constitutional amendment being proposed by Rep. Tyler Lake, R-Wis., would ban out-of-state elitists from donating to local election processes.
Interestingly, Mark Zuckerberg’s social media site, Facebook, which is parented by Meta, has experienced a recent blow to its stock value, perhaps in response to the allegations and doubt swirling around the intent of its donations. RSBN reported that Meta’s stock value took a nosedive on Thursday, losing more than $200 billion.
Facebook itself has been engaged in rampant censorship since 2020, when it began regulating users’ posts regarding the 2020 presidential election and conversations centered on Covid.
Wisconsin’s proposed amendment would keep billionaires with hidden agendas from interfering in state election processes. It would also be one step forward to securing election integrity after the 2020 presidential election, which has exposed many weak spots and irregularities in America’s voting system.
