A bombshell report that suggests Mark Zuckerberg effectively “bought” the 2020 presidential election by funneling more than $400 million to local boards of election under the guise of a “non-partisan” effort has prompted outrage and calls from officials for reform.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis blasted the billionaire Facebook founder during a news conference at which he said a recent election reform law had “banned Zuckerbucks” in the Sunshine State.
“So, Zuckerberg, he spent over $400 million through these, quote, nonprofits to, quote, help with election administration,” DeSantis said Tuesday.
“But what they would do is they would require certain things to be done like mass mail balloting, ballot harvesting, and they would focus on partisan voter turnout, basically. That was totally unacceptable.”
