Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook have already been sued for their electioneering in the 2020 election. Phill Kline, the former attorney general of Kansas and director of the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society, argued that hundreds of millions of dollars were donated by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to nonprofits, which used them in ways that compromised election standards.
And, as we reported earlier, the WVA – Wisconsin Voters Alliance has filed a complaint against a “left-leaning group” funded by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, who have donated a whopping quarter of billion dollars to the group that claims “Elections place too many burdens on voters.”
But this hasn’t stopped Facebook from interfering in elections around the world.
Facebook this week suspended Republican ad campaigns DAYS BEFORE the January Georgia runoff election.
Facebook temporarily disabled a Republican advertising effort in the Georgia Senate runoffs days before the election.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee announced the “unacceptable” restrictions on Twitter, writing, “Facebook has shut down the ad account for the Georgia Battleground Fund, a joint fundraising committee for NRSC, @Perduesenate, and @kloeffler. This is unacceptable with only 4 days to Election Day.”
Big Tech is at it again.
This is unacceptable with only 4 days to Election Day.
