The Wisconsin Assembly Committee on Campaigns and Elections held a hearing Wednesday on the reported election irregularities that happened in the 2020 presidential election in Wisconsin, also revealing that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg gave millions to Wisconsin Democrats to help elect Joe Biden.
Justice Michael Gableman, who is overseeing the 2020 Wisconsin election review investigation, claimed Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg gave $8.8 million to five Democrat mayors in Wisconsin cities under the guise of a “Covid safety” plan. Gableman alleged the funds were then switched from their intended purpose to help defeat Donald Trump and elect Biden.
“It’s very clear that Mark Zuckerberg’s goal was to defeat Donald Trump and elect Joe Biden,” Gableman said at the hearing.
The New York Post reported that Zuckerberg gave $419.5 million to the Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL) and the Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR), who then donated the money to election offices.
Former Ohio Attorney General Ken Blackwell claimed the money came with specific instructions on how it was to be spent, saying that it was spent to buy a specific amount of drop-boxes, which have been seen as problematic in the past, and bus people from Democrat-heavy areas to the polls.
The CTCL also requested that the state adopt universal mail-in voting forever instead of in-person voting, according to the New York Post.
Zuckerberg’s Facebook suspended Trump until at least January 2023, claiming Trump incited violence at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
Although Zuckerberg was said to have played a big roll in state’s outcome in 2020, others testified at the hearing that there were many other factors that contributed to Biden’s narrow 21,000 margin “victory” in Wisconsin.
The Wisconsin Election Commission reported on Nov. 1, 2020 that 3.68 million people were registered to vote. 3.3 million people voted in the 2020 election, meaning roughly 90 percent of Wisconsin’s “active voters” voted in the election.
Jeff O’Donnell, a software and database engineer, testified over 119,000 “active voters” in Wisconsin were registered for 110 to 119 years, and in total, over 500,000 “active” and “inactive” voters have a 1918 registration date.
O’Donnell testified the 1918 date could have been a placeholder date if information was missing, but that 500,000 is an alarmingly high figure.
O’Donnell revealed that nearly 32,000 voters who registered to vote in the six months leading up to the election are now listed as “inactive voters.” Over 42,000 people who voted in 2020 are now considered “inactive,” according to O’Donnell, who called the number of deactivations for recently activated voters “excessive.”
O’Donnell suggested that some voters, possibly deceased, are being placed on an “inactive” status instead of being removed.
The Wisconsin Legislative Audit Bureau (LAB) reported nearly 960,000 people registered as “new voters” in 2020, but nearly 46,000 of them registered with a driver’s license that did not match DMV records.
Dr. Doug Frank also testified that the biggest election issues came from voter registration rolls, saying that databases were inflated to make turnout appear lower.
Wisconsin reported over 72 percent of registered voters voted in the 2020 election, although this figure has been debunked according to figures from their own election’s website.
The 72 percent figure is found when dividing the amount of ballots casts (3.3 million) by the amount of voting-age adults in the state (4.5 million in 2019). Not all voting-age adults voted, so dividing the amount of votes cast by this figure makes the state’s turnout appear lower.
Instead, real turnout is found when dividing the amount of ballots cast (3.3 million) by the amount of registered voters (3.68 million) on November 1, 2020, meaning roughly 90 percent voted in 2020.
While Wisconsin has same-day registration, and people can register on election day, and more people were registered to vote than what was reported in November, turnout would then be 86 percent, not even close to the 72 percent figure reported by Wisconsin.
According to Dr. Frank, 90 percent turnout is not in lines with typical election turnout, and this is much higher than normal.
In Wisconsin, someone can register to vote after registration rolls are reported. Dr. Frank testified it is likely people got registered after the deadline, voted, and then were removed from voting rolls before the next reporting date.
Additionally, he testified 149,000 “active voters” became inactive after the 2016 election, saying Milwaukee even lost 25 percent of their registered active voters. However, all of them somehow voted in 2020.
“You didn’t grow in population that much, something else is going on,” Dr. Frank testified.
It was reported in the hearing that after the 2020 election, 64,000 people who voted in the election became “inactive.” 157,000 voters reportedly had the same registration number.
The Wisconsin Legislative Audit Bureau already conducted an allegedly non-partisan audit of the state’s election results, making 30 recommendations for the Wisconsin Elections Commissions to consider, while revealing dozens of election irregularities, including nearly seven percent of mail-in ballots missing witness information.
Last month, Wisconsin State Rep. Ramthun (R) presented a resolution to decertify the state’s 2020 election results, which Republicans could very well do based on the evidence building around the election discrepancies.
