Where did the millions go? Maricopa County Arizona, one of the largest counties in the nation, received $3 million in ‘Zuckerbucks’ from a Democrat non-profit before the election. No one knows who accepted it or where it went.
In addition to repeatedly sabotaging attempts by the Arizona Senate to implement an accurate, transparent, and factual forensic audit of Maricopa’s 2020 election – which is set to actually begin on April 22 – the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors (MCBOS) also repeatedly violated the chain of custody of the 2.1 million ballots from the 2020 election which this Board is legally responsible for safeguarding. Under their watch things like shredded ballots ended up in a dumpster; doors were left wide open at the Maricopa County Tabulation and Election Center (MCTEC); a gigantic, mysterious fire occurred at a chicken farm owned by one of the supervisors of the MCBOS; and, all of the ballots were without the AZ Senate’s permission literally moved out of the MCTEC and then brought back home again (who knows where these ballots went for a ride and how many never came back).
The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has consistently blocked, politically harassed, and refused the Arizona Senate from auditing the results of the 2020 Election. One group is fed up and started a petition to remove and replace these supervisors. Here’s what We the People Arizona Alliance has to say about MCBOS members, Jack Sellers, Chair, Bill Gates, Vice-chair, Clint Hickman, Steve Chucri, and Steve Gallardo, and here are the recall forms for Maricopa voters to file:
The Board of Supervisors have failed to represent our rights through unconstitutional lock down orders and mask mandates and we stood by. They are now subverting our right to a fair election. They have made it clear they have no intention in preserving our inalienable rights or preserving our elections. They have lied, they have stalled and they have used deceptive political maneuvering. We the People must act to preserve the integrity of our elections. We must take it upon ourselves to do what is right.
Additional recalls are being pursued by this group for AZ Governor Doug Ducey (R), Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (D), AZ Senator Paul Boyer (R), and Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman (D).
Now, come to find out it appears the MCBOS accepted almost $3 million in Zuckerbucks in 2020 – grant money dumped from progressive Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Pricilla Chan’s foundation – as well as from other Big Tech billionaires and radical philanthropists – into the hands of somebody in Maricopa County through a 501(c)(3) “nonpartisan charity,” the Chicago-based Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL).
According to the Capital Research Center (CRC), which investigates corrupted and crooked nonprofits and foundations and which broke the Arizona/Nevada piece of this national Zuckerbucks story, almost $3M went to “Maricopa County election officials.” We assume that means the MCBOS. However, until the nonprofit grant paperwork surfaces and the MCBOS answers the public’s outraged questions, we’re totally in the dark.
Scott Walter at Capital Research spoke in front of the House Government and Elections Committee in Arizona in February. He was given one minute to share that millions of dollars were given essentially from Facebook owner Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan to CTCL but CTCL won’t release detailed information on exactly where their money came from and where it went.
501(c)(3) charities, of all the nonprofit varieties, are absolutely and explicitly prohibited from this exact type of partisan political influence and interference in elections! Didn’t matter to Zuckerberg and his billionaire friends, the nonprofit charity middleman, and the county election officials who accepted these “charitable” gifts in 2020, all across the U.S., especially in swing states and in red states which these billionaires intended to turn blue.
The founder and president of this nonprofit, CTCL is Tiana Epps-Johnson who was a member of the elite, inaugural class of Fellows of the Obama Foundation. CTCL allegedly seeks to “[i]ncrease civic participation by modernizing engagement between local government and the people they serve,” per its IRS Form 990.
The nonprofit charity acts as the frontman. This secretive, nonprofit money hand-off – disguised as grant awards – privatized Maricopa’s election processes and allowed American billionaire, Mark Zuckerberg, and friends, to control election processes in Maricopa, for example, through strict grant requirements: a perfectly illegal public-private partnership especially when it comes to elections. This secretive scheme excluded not only the will of the voters in Maricopa but also the legal approval of the Arizona legislature which is the only entity in any state, per our Constitution, which can change election laws and procedures.
