A new federal lawsuit in the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of Texas seeks to block unregulated private grants to Texas local election administrators. Texas Voters Alliance members Alan Vera, Donnie Wisenbaker, Russell Hayter, and Warren Johnson filed the suit. The organization at the center of the lawsuit IS the Chicago-based Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL). Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Chan are the primary CTCL financiers.
CTCL claims to help local elections officials conduct safe elections during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, Texas Voters Alliance says that there are sinister motives behind CTCL donations. Dallas County Commissioner J.J. Koch (R) described the contributions as an incentive to rally Democrat voters to come out and cast their ballots during the upcoming elections.
Several Texas counties have received money from CTCL, amounting to $25 million. Dallas County received $15.1 million, while Harris collected $9.6 million. Hays and Hopkins Counties received $298,000 and $19,952, respectively. Dallas is among the counties targeted by Liberal groups such as Everytown for Gun Safety to recreate a Virginia-style takeover of Texas.
The petitioners say that the grants violate federal election laws, which entrust states with authority to manage federal elections rather than local governments. Texas Voters Alliance says that it wants to restore “public confidence in the integrity of Texas elections.” the litigants want to ensure that public officials do not violate the law while fulfilling their obligations.
Coincidentally, Dallas County Elections Administrator Toni Pippins-Poole is a member of the CTCL Advisory Committee. Pippins-Poole will resign on November 30, after Commissioner Koch requested her to step down following a mishap during the party primaries. The incident led to over 9,000 votes in 44 thumb drives going inadvertently missing. Such an event could have a serious implication on the outcome of the election.
Thankfully, Texas Voters Alliance captured the ensuing liberal collusion very early on. Most tech-affiliated organizations are biased towards the Left. It’s no surprise that most of their donations are going towards Leftist candidates. For example, Biden has received 92% of contributions from the top tech firms, according to OpenSecrets. It’s no surprise that tech-affiliated organizations would wish to tip the scales in favor of the Left subtly.
Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is pushing universal background checks in our state, and if left unchecked, it will not be long until we see bills like this getting traction in Austin. Texas is embarrassingly ranked 29th for gun rights, and with the help of the political elites in Austin, we will surely rank among New York, California, and Illinois if left to their own devices. Please join our fight today, and help us restore Texas' place as the standard for the U.S.
