Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s January 6 Committee failed to disclose during its primetime presentation earlier this month that one of its star witnesses has some questionable baggage related to the 2020 election. Ben Ginsberg works for one of the groups funded by Mark Zuckerberg that was involved in possibly compromising the election.
Ginsberg is the co-chair of the Election Official Legal Defense Network (EOLDN). That group’s mission is to connect attorneys who will donate their services with election officials “who need advice or assistance.”
EOLDN is a project of Zuckerberg’s Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR). It has been reported that CEIR likely gave Democrat candidates advantages in battleground states in the 2020 election cycle through its grant programs allegedly made for “nonpartisan voter education.”
Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, donated $69.5 million to CEIR and another $350 million to the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL).
In her book “Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized Our Elections,” Mollie Hemingway wrote that Zuckerberg’s two organizations infiltrated elections from within nationwide.
She wrote that CEIR and CTCL were allowed for the first time ever to blur the lines between government election officials and political operatives in 2020. Hemingway wrote that as a result, “unelected liberal activists” were allowed to “actually take over election administration duties in crucial battleground states.”
The Office of the Special Counsel for the State of Wisconsin issued a report this year finding state election officials there who accepted EOLDN’s “free” legal services may have violated election laws.
The report found that EOLDN attorneys act primarily to protect the “interests of CTCL, CEIR, Zuckerberg, and Chan.” With that interest “foremost in mind,” the legal services provided unduly influenced the judgment and official actions of state election officials.
The report also found that because CTCL, Zuckerberg, and Chan financed illegal drop boxes and election bribery, EOLDN’s “free” legal services could easily be seen as a reward for assisting in unlawful election practices.
Ginsburg never mentioned his work as co-chair of EOLDN when he testified before the January 6 Committee. Reps. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) introduced and questioned Ginsburg. They also failed to bring up his involvement with EOLDN. There was no discussion of CEIR or CTCL or the involvement of the “Zuck Bucks” organizations in the 2020 election.
