MADISON — All the Jan. 6 Committees and “Big Lie” narratives can’t cover up the extremely questionable involvement of Mark Zuckerberg-funded liberal activists in the 2020 elections.
And their heaviest involvement was in the biggest Democrat-voting cities in America’s key battleground states.
This unprecedented amount of money from the founder of the world’s largest social network dumped on election offices should be a big concern for anyone who cares about election integrity. It certainly would have gotten a Jan. 6 Committee-like series of hearings if, say, the Koch Brothers or other wealthy conservatives had set up similar “voter safety” grants scheme.
As Wisconsin Spotlight has extensively reported, and the MacIver Institute laid out last week, the liberal groups involved weren’t merely good Samaritans trying to help cash-strapped election offices uphold the most sacred democratic act. They were trying to get Democrats elected.
The Zuckerbucks Cabal infiltrated the election offices of Wisconsin’s five most populous and Democrat-laden cities. They did everything from offering to help cure — or correct — absentee ballots to assist in Get Out the Vote efforts targeting traditional Democrat voters. Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, Kenosha and Racine received the lion’s share of the Zuckerbucks election administrative funding in the Badger State, and all that “help” brought Dem vote counts up.
The national players in Wisconsin included people like:
Hilary Hall, a former Boulder County election clerk and Democrat Party chair who was sued twice, in 2012 and 2014, for refusing to comply with Colorado election transparency law and denying observers reasonable access to view the counting of mail-in ballots.
Amaad Rivera-Wagner, an uber-liberal Massachusetts Democrat activist, delegate to the Democratic National Convention, state senate candidate repeatedly fined for ignoring campaign finance report requirements, and anti-Trump organizer, Rivera-Wagner was placed in a Green Bay city government position two months before the election.
Michael Spitzer-Rubenstein, a Democratic Party operative who was a former Obama campaign staffer and BLM supporter from New York. He controlled just about every aspect of Green Bay election administration, from the redesign of absentee voting to sign placement to ballot tracking system to possession of the keys to the ballot storage location. He was the sole authority over access to the “secure” ballot location.
Tiana Epps-Johnson and Whitney Mays, alums of the hyper-partisan progressive campaign operative training group the New Organizing Institute (NOI) who founded Chicago-based Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) and developed contracts binding Wisconsin election officials to implement CTCL’s Get-Out-The-Vote (GOTV) strategy. For years leading into the 2020 cycle, Obama darling and Fellow Epps-Johnson and Mays hosted Ballot Data Convening events partnering with Democracy Fund, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, the Princeton Gerrymandering Project (recently exposed for faking redistricting data to benefit Democrats), the League of Women Voters, and We Vote (which collects personal data on issues including climate change and animal rights.)
Emails obtained by Empower Wisconsin through open records requests show the elections officials in the so-called “Wisconsin-5” cities were all on board with the liberal activists and their services, which went well beyond purchasing masks and plexiglass for election workers. What they did raises serious questions about election influence and interference.
No wonder they have fought like hell against legislative subpoenas that would — or would have — uncovered more documents and testimony into what really went down in those election offices.
The WI-5 were tools of a broader, coordinated and opportunistic campaign to infiltrate election offices. They opened the door, so to speak.
They are collectively Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.
