    Elon Musk stirred controversy this week when he tweeted a link to a 2021 article from The Federalist. He also acknowledged a subscriber's reply that, "The election wasn't rigged or stolen. It was "fortified" with ZuckBucks." by awarding it a "strong arm" emoji.

    The article Musk referenced, The 2020 Election Wasn’t Stolen, It Was Bought By Mark Zuckerberg, explains how The Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL) and The Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR) funneled $420 million into the 2020 election, largely to the benefit of democrats.

    The Federalist argued the massive cash injection "had to do with financing the infiltration of election offices at the city and county level by left-wing activists, and using those offices as a platform to implement preferred administrative practices, voting methods, and data-sharing agreements, as well as to launch intensive outreach campaigns in areas heavy with Democratic voters.”

    Musk apparently struck a nerve because the Washington Post immediately responded by publishing an article by Philip Bump who suggested that Musk shared a “baseless election claim” with millions on Twitter.

    WaPo makes an interesting admission in the article.  

    The original argument in favor of ZuckBucks claimed that private funding would help elections run smoothly during covid.  However, the new argument being proposed by Bump is:

    "CTCL’s investments were often in heavily Democratic areas — because those areas often have lower turnout rates. If you want to increase turnout, the smartest place to try to do so is places where turnout is lowest. In the United States, that’s often lower-income communities and communities that have high populations of Black and Hispanic residents, two groups that often vote heavily Democratic.

    So now Bump is arguing that CTCL’s massive cash injection to support the 2020 get-out-the-vote effort that benefitted Democrats was a good thing. Of course.

    Jason Snead, Executive Director of Honest Elections Project, commented that "CTCL’s ZuckBucks 1.0 was a turnout operation meant to help the Left all along.  It’s pretty obvious that they’re trying to do the exact same thing with ZuckBucks 2.0."

    Spotlight on Greenwich

    The Town of Greenwich accepted ZuckBucks in 2020, and indicated the grant money was used to cover expenses associated with absentee ballot processing.  This grant was requested by the former Town Clerk, and there was no requirement from CTCL beyond "safe and secure elections" as to how the money could be spent.

    A closer look at Election Results in Greenwich shows a net increase of 5,673 voters in Greenwich in 2020 — the first time that the Greenwich voter base increased substantially in four presidential election cycles.

    Democrats added 4,623 voters in 2020 compared to a net increase of just 1,050 Republican voters.  

    Democrat voters favored absentee and mail-in voting in 2020, with 55% of registered Democrats voting this way as compared to 29% of Republicans.

    Greenwich accepted another round of ZuckBucks in 2023 -- this time a whopping $500,000 grant that the Registrar never even requested from CTCL -- leaving local Republicans and anyone who values free and fair elections in a quandary about how to combat what looks like an attempt to do the exact same thing again in 2024.

    It's time to make elections fair again.
