Election Watch 2022: CTCL's New Election Meddling Coalition, Biden Tries to Federalize Voter Registration & the Hillsborough County SOE's Been Sued

CTCL (Center for Tech and Civic Life) is the highly partisan Democrat aligned nonprofit where Mark Zuckerberg dumped at least $350 million to influence the 2020 election. CTCL was founded in 2012 by Tiana Epps-Johnson, a partisan who trained Progressive organizers and Democrat Party operatives.

Aa a result of the "ZuckBucks" shenanigans in 2020, a number of States, including Florida, enacted new laws prohibiting the use of private money on election activities.

Such laws are not stopping CTCL or their Progressive partners from more election meddling in 2022. 

With $80 Million of funding from the Audacious Project, CTCL launched in April their latest initiative: The U.S. Alliance for Election Excellence

This Alliance is targeting "election administration". Partisan Epps-Johnson, who was invited in 2018 by former President Obama to be an inaugural member of his Obama Foundation Fellowship, wants to "restore trust in our democracy" by telling election officials how to "better" run their elections. 

The Alliance will select local election offices to be part of their "Center for Election Excellence" program. Any election official who receives backlash for participating in the Alliance  program will receive "guidance and resources" for how to combat "misinformation. 

At Stanford last year Epps-Johnson introduced Obama when he spoke there - ironically - about "disinformation". She also sits on the boards of City Bureau, a Chicago-based community organizing group, and the Center for Civic Design who recommends all voters vote by mail.

Highly partisan Epps-Johnson calls her new Alliance "the next phase of what we do need at this moment and how we can show up with the right tools". 

But is it really just CTCL's attempt to skirt or do an end-around the new laws passed since 2020?

It appears for now Mark Zuckerberg is not funding CTCL's "next phase". But CTCL is very intertwined with highly partisan Democrat aligned organizations with deep pockets.

A recent PJ Media post reported what the Public Interest Legal Foundation found as a result of their many Freedom of Information (FOIA) requests. 

While no election official in a state that now prohibits private funding of elections has applied for new funding, something stranger, and more dangerous has emerged from the public information requests.

In one email, we find that the Democracy Fund—a hyper-funded progressive money source—is organizing state officials and third parties to discuss election administration.
