Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg just recieved some bad news. One Republican governor shut him down — big tech has been put on notice.
“Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey signed a bill into law on Friday that prohibits the private funding of election administration in the state,” reported Breitbart News. This is a major blow to Zuckerberg.
Why? Because the powerful billionaire “contributed $419 million to two non-profit groups that in turn funded state, county, and local election administration,” continued Breitbart.
The contributions were made through the Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR), which is heavily funded by Zuckerberg. Rightfully so, an alarm has been raised about the danger.
The last thing Arizona or any state needs is millions of dollars from Zuckerberg — and, presumably, other big tech CEOs — trying to influence election operations. It just doesn’t pass the smell test.
In fact, Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, who is notoriously anti-Trump, reportedly accepted “$4.8 million from the Center for Election Innovation and Research for an advertising campaign.”
