Thus far, the left-leaning Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) has granted $16.3 million to six cities which combined cast over 82% of their over 1 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016. CTCL boasts its funding comes from Facebook and Google and yesterday, Mark Zucerkberg and Priscilla Chan announced they were gifting $250 million to CTCL. If used for similar grants, these funds will dwarf city election funds, creating a dramatic disparity in voting opportunity and, as indicated by previous grants, the funds will allow city governments to create a partisan advantage.
“Government must be a neutral player in elections,” commented Phill Kline, the Director of the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society. “We’ve been down this road before when racist legislatures suppressed black voters while making it easier for white voters to get to a polling place. We should not allow similar tactics to be used to support one political party’s candidate over the other,” he added.
CTCL is “a team of civic technologists, trainers, researchers, election administration and data experts working to foster a more informed and engaged democracy, and helping to modernize elections.”1) The organization is making every effort they can to make sure Americans in certain cities can – and do – vote in the midst of this current pandemic.
Does their involvement – under the guise of doing their part to assist cities and election officials in conducting a safe election process – actually interfere with the integrity of the election?
