Thanks to WILL, Wisconsin Judge Scraps the Zuck Bucks Voting Van

Watchdogs are rolling back the taint of “Zuck bucks” one victory at a time

If 2020 was the country’s first experiment with vote-by-mail, it also marked an even uglier experiment: One billionaire’s scheme to privatize the election in swing states.

Mark Zuckerberg’s “Zuck bucks” scheme suffered another blow this week when a Wisconsin judge ruled that Racine improperly used funds from the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL)—his vehicle for funneling $350 million into thousands of county election offices—to buy a “mobile absentee voting van” to get out the vote in Democrat vote-rich cities.

It turns out that using private money to buy a van for harvesting mail-in ballots is unlawful in Wisconsin. Who would’ve thought?

That victory was secured by the right-leaning Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL), which leads the election integrity fight in the Badger State. WILL estimates that Zuck bucks boosted Democratic voter turnout by 8,000 votes in 2020, where Biden’s margin was just 20,000 votes.

That’s a conservative estimate. This writer has traced the origin of the entire Zuck bucks plot to Wisconsin’s 5 cities, which hatched the idea to use private funds to boost absentee turnout in summer 2020 before exporting it nationwide.

WILL’s victory couldn’t come at a more critical moment. With Democrats refusing to ban private funding for elections—Democrat Gov. Tony Evers has vetoed such bills not once, but twice—it’s up to voters to pass the constitutional amendment prohibiting private interests from bankrolling election offices in 2024.
