Mark Zuckerberg’s “Zuck Bucks” Outlawed In New Law Pennsylvania ha

(PatriotWise.com)- Pennsylvania has barred public officials from collecting and using private election funds, even NGOs, to reduce outside influence.

Over 20 states have banned or restricted the use of unregulated third-party money in elections as of July 2022. Conservative experts claim “Zuck Bucks” were strategically placed in battleground states to boost Joe Biden’s vote totals in 2020.

According to Capital Research Center, election offices in Pennsylvania earned more than $25 million in “Zuck Bucks” funding in 2020.

Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf signed Senate Bill 982 on July 11, mandating that state and local officials “may not solicit, apply for, enter into a contract for, or receive or expend gifts, donations, grants or funding from any individual, business, organization, trust, foundation, or any nongovernmental entity for voter registration or the preparation, administration or conduction of an election in this commonwealth.”

The measure creates a new “election integrity grant program” to compensate counties with $45 million each year, or $5.15 per registered voter.

It restricts the subsidies to payment of employees needed to pre-canvass and canvass mail-in, absentee votes, physical security, and transparency costs for centralized pre-canvassing and canvassing.

The overall number of awards will depend on the preceding primary’s registered voters. To qualify for the state deal, counties must open and count votes by 7 a.m. on Election Day, so mail-in ballots can’t be processed before.

Counties can apply Aug. 1-15.

A Mark Zuckerberg-funded activist outfit, the Chicago nonprofit Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL), bombarded election offices with hundreds of millions of dollars in 2020 to boost Democratic voter turnout.

The Facebook founder and his wife, Priscilla Chan, gave $350 million to CTCL for “COVID-19 response grants” to finance local election offices nationwide. The money was intended to buy PPE and minimize coronavirus transmission; however, the COVID-19 reaction was a fraction of overall costs.

CTCL gave money to 10 of the 13 counties Biden won in Pennsylvania, including Erie County, which had voted for Trump in 2016.

According to the study, these ten counties earned $20.8 million, or 83% of CTCL grants to Pennsylvania. CTCL granted funding to 12 of Trump’s 54 statewide counties. These 12 counties got $1.73 million, 7% of CTCL monies in Pennsylvania.

The report showed that Biden’s counties received the five most significant CTCL funds per capita statewide.

While signing SB 982, the Pennsylvania governor vetoed a Republican election security bill that allowed registered voters to act as poll monitors in any precinct.

Broad and Liberty, a right-leaning Pennsylvania political website, uncovered emails revealing Wolf’s administration colluded with left-wing NGOs to urge Democratic counties to apply for “Zuck Bucks” funds.
