Two non-profits created before the 2018 election that include US state Secretaries of State and Election Directors, received donations from voting machine companies, ballot printing companies, Zuckerberg’s non-profit as well as a Hillary-related non-profit in 2020.
Where did this money go?
We previously reported on numerous companies and non-profits and their roles in the 2020 election and in recent election audits.
Today we focus on the two non-profits related to the Secretaries of State and the Election Directors in the US.
Two of the major ballot printing shops in the United States certified to print Dominion paper ballot products, Runbeck Election Services in Tempe, Arizona, and the Fort Orange Press in Albany, NY, are both 2021 major donors to the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) and the National Association of State Election Directors (NASED).
Notably, Jocelyn Benson, Secretary of State of Michigan, is the current co-chair of the NASS Elections Committee.
Election printers Fort Orange and Runbeck both donated $5,000 to NASED.
Shockingly, Dominion Voting Systems, ES&S, and Hart InterCivic, the top election machine vendors in the United States also donated to NASS and NASED. In addition, Smartmatic donated to NASS.
Both NASS and NASED refer to these donors as “corporate affiliates.” The entire list of NASS and NASED “corporate affiliates” should be viewed to understand the blatant corruption infecting the world which our top state election officials inhabit.
It is an out-and-out flagrant conflict of interest for voting machine vendors, software designers, and voting machine ballot printers to be corporate donors to the 501(c)(3) nonprofit, alleged nonpartisan charities, NASS and NASED, which claim to represent 100% of the top U.S. election officials, both secretaries of state and states’ chief election officials.
Who is policing NASS and NASED to make sure conflicts of interest like this are exposed and prevented?! Clearly, secretaries of state, many of whom oversee their states’ nonprofit charity divisions, which would ordinarily police nonprofit abuses like these, have failed to and are a part of the problem.
The top 2021 donor to NASED, at $20,000, is Pierre Omidyar’s Democracy Fund. Omidyar is the founder of E-Bay. His Democracy Fund was one of the progressive donor foundations, along with Mark Zuckerberg and his wife’s foundation and others, which contributed to the $0.5+ billion in Zuckerbucks, which was funneled through corrupt nonprofit middlemen agents, directly to state and county election officials.
This huge influx of “dark money” privatized our election system in 2020, especially in the six swing states, and “placed billionaires in the counting rooms” across America.
The Amistad Project, which broke this story, stated in its December 16, 2020 press release:
This network pumped hundreds of millions of dollars into local election systems using the COVID crisis as a pretense. Our report proves that in reality it was nothing more than a naked attempt to purchase an election. … This report paints a clear picture of a cabal of billionaires and activists using their wealth to subvert, control, and fundamentally alter the electoral system itself.
The top donor to NASS at $20,000, is – unbelievably! – Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook. It is beyond shocking that Zuckerberg’s family foundation donated $500,000,000 to the Zuckerbucks‘ “naked attempt to purchase an election” project, and now we find out that Zuckerberg’s Facebook has been greasing the wheels with top state election officials, through one of their allegedly nonpartisan, “charitable” nonprofits!
Billionaires influenced the U.S. 2020 elections bottom-to-top, through targeted donations to both the on-the-ground election officials in U.S. counties as well as to the top election official leadership in the entire United States!
It is troubling and frankly, shocking that NASS and NASED – two charities which represent United States’ top election officials – have such close ties to election machine and election machine software vendors, election machine ballot printers, and many of the radical, far-left and even socialist nonprofits, some of which were involved in the distribution of $0.5+ billion in Zuckerbucks, and some of whom have been actively involved in threatening and even sabotaging the 2020 forensic election audits taking place right now in Maricopa County, Arizona and, recently, in the Town of Windham, New Hampshire.
The possibility of the corruption of U.S. public election officials appears to be alarmingly high with these types of arrangements.
TGP covered the campaign support which Jocelyn Benson received from George Soros and his progressive billionaire partners in 2010 (for her first, failed SoS campaign) through Soros’ Secretary of State Project (SoSP). In 2018, with the SoSP re-vamped and now called iVOTE, Benson and Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (D) of Arizona both received substantive campaign support from both George Soros, his progressive billionaire partners, and Hillary Clinton’s nonprofit conglomerate, Onward Together and its attached ActBlue donation platform.
Hillary Clinton’s Onward Together description of iVOTE states:
iVote is on the offensive, working to elect pro-voting Secretaries of State in key battleground states … Earlier this year , iVote announced that they plan to spend $5 million in efforts to elect Democratic, pro-voting rights secretaries of state in seven target states of Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, Michigan, Ohio, New Mexico, and Iowa.
iVote brags about Arizona’s corrupt Secretary of State Hobbs:
iVote also brags about supporting Michigan’s Soros backed corrupt Secretary of State Benson:
iVOTE was successful and placed both Benson and Hobbs in their states’ respective secretary of state seats, in two of the key, swing states, Arizona and Michigan, in preparation for the 2020 presidential election.
As mentioned, Jocelyn Benson, Secretary of State of Michigan, is the current co-chair of the NASS Elections Committee. That committee’s members include all of the Secretaries of State or chief election officials of the six 2020 swing states – save one who belongs to NASED. Those six swing or battleground states are as identified by Dr. Peter Navarro in his 2021, three-part report, The Navarro Report: Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
Hon. Jocelyn Benson (D), MI. Chair, NASS Elections Committee
Hon. Katie Hobbs (D), AZ
Hon. Brad Raffensperger (R), GA
Hon. Barbara Cegavske (R), NV
Hon. Kathy Boockvar (D), PA (as of February 5, 2021, when she stepped down from her position)
Megan Wolfe (D), WI, “Administrator” of Elections, is the incoming president of NASED. Last year she served on its executive committee as its treasurer.
These two “charitable,” supposedly nonpartisan 501(c)(3) nonprofits represent all of the top state election officials in the United States. Clearly, NASS and NASED leadership, activities, donors, and its Elections Committee deserve much closer scrutiny given these disturbing facts. Just as clearly, Michigan’s Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and Arizona’s Secretary of State Hobbs, with their support not only from George Soros but also from the top tier ranks of the national Democratic machine and its cabal of secretive progressive, billionaire backers, are up to no good.
