Spotlight: Report: Zuckerbucks bought Biden votes

By M.D. Kittle

MADISON — The millions of dollars in Mark Zuckerberg-funded grants dumped into Wisconsin’s largest and most Democrat-heavy cities had a sizeable impact on voter turnout — for Democrat Joe Biden. That’s according to a new analysis tracking the liberal activist money behind November’s polarized presidential election.

The Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty report, “Finger on the Scale: Examining Private Funding of Elections in Wisconsin,” finds that of the “safe, inclusive, and secure” elections grants handed out to Wisconsin municipalities in 2020, the lion’s share of funding (86 percent) of approximately $10.3 million went to the so-called “WI-5” cities — Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, Kenosha and Racine.

Such outsized funding totals undercut the left’s argument that the liberal Chicago-based Center for Tech & Civic Life (CTCL) generously gave to more than 200 municipalities statewide. As Wisconsin Spotlight has reported, the Republican stronghold of Waukesha, Wisconsin’s 7th-largest city, received $42,000 from CTCL. Racine, slightly larger, got a grant for $9420,000 — $900,000 more than Waukesha.
