Did Dems’ outside money buy Wisconsin?

‘Bad’ depends on whose Big Money!

This roadside stand contends that real voters cast real ballots in last year’s Covid-ravaged presidential election, never mind that over-zealous election clerks improperly “perfected” absentee ballots by filling in addresses, placing drop-off ballot boxes in city parks, et cetera.

Stated plainly, Joe Biden won Wisconsin, thanks equally to suburban Republican women’s disdain for the louche incumbent. Immutable fact: Donald Trump under-performed all eight Republican congressional candidates.

Vote absentee primary

That does not dismiss the fact that Democrat(ic) election clerks shook the tree particularly hard in liberal counties like Milwaukee and Dane County. They did so with the help of private money from the Democrats’ billionaire class; namely, Mark Zuckerberg. The Facebook major domo poured $10.3 million into Wisconsin — $8.8 million of that into the five most Democrat-voting cities. His “Wisconsin Purchase” is outlined in the American Conservative: How Mark Zuckerberg’s millions … turned Wisconsin blue in 2020.”

Our research shows that [Zuckerberg’s] spending in Wisconsin generated enough votes for Joe Biden to secure him an Electoral College win there in 2020. We estimate that [Zuckerberg’s] spending in Wisconsin purchased Joe Biden an additional 65,222 votes,without which Donald Trump would have won the state by 44,540 votes.

Win big Zuckerbucks!

Zuckerberg entered Wisconsin with a $100,000 grant to Racine Mayor Cory Mason to “recruit other Wisconsin cities to join the ‘Wisconsin Safe Voting Plan.’” Mason, a former Democrat(ic) state legislator, brought on board fellow liberal mayors in Madison, Milwaukee, Green Bay, and Kenosha. The plan “encouraged absentee and early voting mainly through providing “assistance” in absentee ballot completion and submission, and the installation of ballot drop boxes. It also sought to “expand strategic voter education & outreach efforts, particularly to historically disenfranchised residents.”

The American Conservative writes:

Clerks in liberal bastions Dane and Milwaukee counties in March 2020 advised voters that anyone could use the threat of Covid-19 as a reason for claiming “indefinitely confined” status for absentee voting, which excuses them from voter ID requirements. This message reached hundreds of thousands of Wisconsin voters, and spread beyond Dane and Milwaukee counties. The Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled that, while this advice may have been ill advised, it was ultimately up to each voter to determine their status. Ultimately, about 215,000 voters claimed this status, four times more voters than had claimed to be “indefinitely confined” in 2016.

Last August, Gov. Tony Evers vetoed legislation that would have

  • Penalized false representations of indefinite confinement.
  • Limited to one site outside the clerk’s office for absentee ballot drop-offs.
  • Prohibited unsolicited absentee ballot applications or absentee ballots.
  • Prevented nursing homes from influencing a resident’s voting behavior.
  • Barred election officials from adding missing information to absentee ballot envelopes.

→ Follow the sorry history of thwarted election reform here.

Blaska’s Bottom Line: It’s an easy fix; No outside money in the conduct of elections! You guessed it, Evers vetoed that one, too! Earlier this month, the WI Elections Commission denied that the Zuckerbucks amounted to election bribery. The Wisconsin Voter Alliance says it will challenge that ruling in court.

Where are the good gummint goo goos when you need them?

    If our Wisconsin Election Commission is not going to do their job then what is the purpose of having them? They didn’t enforce the removal of names from the voter rolls (one wonders why) and appear to be working more closely with the Democrat Party then acting as an independent agency tasked with enforcing fair elections.

      You still don’t realize the government has turned against the people. Everything we experience is part of a plan to enslave humanity. Millions have submitted to an experimental gene therapy. They have already submitted to servitude with a minimum amount of coercion needed.

    I have worked as a poll workers in 3 different cities over the last 10+ years. The longest stint in Madison. In my new city (another liberal stronghold) when I questioned the process of curing ballots I was told to stop complaining and that I didn’t know what I was talking about. I was not asked back even though I once again offered to help. This told me that these liberal cities wanted no one to make waves. Ames me angry to this day!

    I think the system is phuqued in ways I never imagined, and in the twilight of my years, find that constitutionally disappointing. Lucky for me, personally, that I never looked forward to much.

    Whenever we the people allow billionaires to shape the outcome of elections to fit their way of thinking, we the people loose.

    Face it, one man, Mark Zuckerberg, influenced the elections in our state as well as others to shape the outcome of a national election to fit his way of thinking.

    The question is: Why?

    For what purpose did he spend so much of his money to help shape the outcome of the election in our state as well as others?

    Why do any billionaires spend their own money on shaping local, state or national elections? The amount of money they spend surprised me.

    Forbes did an article on this; you can read it here: https://www.forbes.com/sites/michelatindera/2021/02/25/these-billionaire-donors-spent-the-most-money-on-the-2020-election/?sh=43d34a0114ce

    Seems like the billionaire class really likes the democrat party.

    Again, the question is why?

    Why give money to the party that wants to destroy you? That demonizes you for your wealth?

    Can’t argue with anything you’re stating there but I do have a couple of names to add to your list of outside campaign contributors, Adelson and Koch bros. I realize two out of the three are dead but let’s face it somebody’s going to step up in their place. Money talks and bullshit walks. Doesn’t matter which side of the aisle you vote for.


  6. Bill Cleary says:

    I think that what needs to be said here is best said in an exert from a speech that Teddy Roosevelt gave in 1910 called “Citizenship in a Republic-The man in the arena”

    In this speech he said in part: “But if a man’s efficiency is not guided and regulated by a moral sense, then the more efficient he is the worse he is, the more dangerous to the body politic. Courage, intellect, all the masterful qualities, serve but to make a man more evil if they are merely used for that man’s own advancement, with brutal indifference to the rights of others. It speaks ill for the community if the community worships these qualities and treats their possessors as heroes regardless of whether the qualities are used rightly or wrongly. It makes no difference as to the precise way in which this sinister efficiency is shown. It makes no difference whether such a man’s force and ability betray themselves in a career of money-maker or politician, soldier or orator, journalist or popular leader. If the man works for evil, then the more successful he is the more he should be despised and condemned by all upright and far-seeing men. To judge a man merely by success is an abhorrent wrong; and if the people at large habitually so judge men, if they grow to condone wickedness because the wicked man triumphs, they show their inability to understand that in the last analysis free institutions rest upon the character of citizenship, and that by such admiration of evil they prove themselves unfit for liberty.”

    This is a great speech, you should read it sometime
