Mark Zuckerberg’s Financial Gains For Meddling In 2020 Elections Brought Under Spotlight

A conservative think tank, The Center for Renewing America, has filed a complaint to the IRS to have Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan investigated. The group noted that the couple’s involvement in the last election was overwhelmingly suspicious and had to have personal gains. Hence, the think tank urged the agency to investigate the couple to see if they had broken any federal tax laws. 

In the last presidential election, Zuckerberg and several nonprofit organizations heavily invested their resources to influence the election in favor of the Democratic candidate, Joe Biden.

This think tank claims that several bodies, including the Center for Election Innovation and Research and the National Vote at Home Institute, partook in a scheme to influence the election in Biden’s favor. These groups received about $400 million for their efforts in election altering on local and state levels. This plot, led by David Plouffe, Obama’s former campaign manager, invested about half a billion in the 2020 election.

The Meta CEO and his wife claimed that the sum donated to progressive groups around the country was only their attempt to ensure the 2020 elections ran smoothly. However, data experts who analyzed how this fund was distributed called the couple out on their ridiculousness.

The analysis found that the money was “distributed on a highly partisan basis that favored Democrats.” In addition, these funds were directed majorly to democrat-leaning environments and were used to fund a partisan operation and influence Americans.

William Doyle also reported that the scheme had no business financing traditional campaigns. Rather, it was entirely concentrated on partisan electioneering in Biden’s favor. Doyle added that the far-left strategy was only concerned “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.”

The complaint filed by the think tank urged that the IRS investigates this partisan scheme as it should have done a long time ago. According to a complaint, the IRS’s investigation should focus on proof “for unlawful political activity and the receipt and use of improper personal income tax deductions for donations to one or more of those entities,” according to one of the complaints.

Another complaint urged that the left-leaning groups participating in this scheme should not be allowed to hold on to their charitable tax statuses moving forward. The complaint states that the tax status should be nullified “for making expenditures for partisan campaign intervention, in direct and deliberate violation” of the laws of the United States.

A supporting complaint noted that the Meta CEO and his wife did not also engage in these acts for free as they got illegal tax deductions in return for their efforts. The complaint adds that the IRS would be left to decide if the Meta couple left enough evidence to deem them guilty of committing tax violations. However, “it is incumbent upon the IRS to recoup what is likely a false tax deduction on a roughly hundred-million-dollar order of magnitude: an unlawful taxpayer subsidy running to support Democrat electioneering purposes.”
