This story has been UPDATED to accurately attribute the allegations made by Michigan witnesses being represented by Attorney Ian Northon, who spoke on The Sara Carter Show Wednesday.
An attorney from Michigan representing who is battling allegations of election fraud behalf of his 39 clients told the Sara Carter Show Wednesday that one of his clients is accusing charities supported by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, of illegally influencing the 2020 presidential election in Michigan.
Ian Northon, who is with the Thomas Moore Society, a conservative legal group challenging the election in multiple states, told Carter on her podcast that it is imperative that all substantial allegations of fraud in the election be investigated. Northon claimed to Carter that his clients said they have evidence of the donations Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, have made and state those should be investigated.
Facebook representatives could not be immediately reached for comment. If and when they do comment this story will be updated.
“We have evidence that for—and I don’t want to say ‘foreign’ as in foreign governments—but people from other than Michigan right now—[…] but foreign influence from Mark Zuckerberg and his wife put over $400 million into local elections this cycle,” Northon told Carter. He then claimed that they did so through “charities like CTCL, the Center for Tech and Civic Life—nine and a half million dollars poured into Michigan in violation of federal law.”
“That’s our allegation, one of them,” Northon added.
Northon then went on to allege that charities supported by Zuckerberg paid consultants who oversaw the ballot-counting in a hockey rink-turned-counting facility. In that facility, Republican inspectors and poll challengers were kicked out.
“Well, it’s because those consultants, those Zuckerberg-paid consultants, were in the counting booth,” he claimed. “But—the bipartisan and Republican oversight was in the penalty box. You know, they did this in a hockey arena. So you know, it’s cold in Michigan. And so we make jokes about hockey, but the reality is, […] why are Republican poll challengers and Republican inspectors kicked out but Zuckerberg-paid consultants are overseeing the counting rooms in the count—”
Later in the interview, Carter asked Northon, “So that people understand why these charities are so influential and what they can do and why those folks may have been there, explain that, so that we all understand.”
“It creates [an] uneven effect,” Northon said. “So the Constitution—the U.S. Constitution—and Michigan’s too, requires what they call ‘equal protection’ to avoid disparate impact or disparate treatment.”
“Now that’s high minded language,” he continued, “but what it means is—is if I have a veterans ballot in one place, it should be counted the exact same way as a veterans ballot someplace else.”
“Now, I grew up in Michigan in a town with one stoplight—I’m kind of a country boy, so I apologize for the rural accent,” he said. “But to me, that the votes in my hometown of Osceola County, Lake County should be treated exactly the same way as Lansing or Detroit, Wayne County or Ingham County.”
Northon said consultants connected to Zuckerberg’s charities were being paid “50 to 60 dollars an hour in those locations to cure ballots, to duplicate ballots,” to ensure that every vote was counted. He explained how having paid poll workers in one district and only minimal volunteers in Republican districts added to the disparity while counting the votes, which could lead to inaccurate tallies.
“And folks in my hometown are getting minimum wage, our volunteers…” Northon said.
Later in the interview, Northon alleged that witness revealed to him that state authorities intentionally, with the help of outside charities, along with get-out-the-vote groups, tried to sway Michigan for Joe Biden.
The ballots, he claimed, are “supposed to be opened up, signed, counted, and put back in signed, sealed and delivered to the next step along the way.”
“Why aren’t those logs being looked at? What about the computer tallies? How many votes came in after the deadline?” he asked. “Those are simple questions to ask that the Secretary of State and head of elections have the answers to, but they’re not disclosing, they’re not revealing, because I think they blew right through those deadlines.”
“And they did so intentionally,” he continued, “with the help of Mark Zuckerberg and his money, the help of Rock the Vote, and so many other partisans that have unfairly come into our state and affected Michiganders all over and watered down our votes.”

New York City Dems Push Law to Allow 800,000 Non-Citizens to Vote in Municipal Elections
The New York City Council will vote on December 9 on a law to allow green-card holders and residents with work permits to vote in municipal elections
New York’s Democratic party is battling over the constitutionality of voter laws. On December 9, the New York City Council will vote on a law to allow green-card holders and residents with work permits to vote in municipal elections.
“Around 808,000 New York City residents who have work permits or are lawful permanent residents would be eligible to vote under the legislation, which has the support of 34 of 51 council members, a veto-proof majority” reports Fox News.
“It’s important for the Democratic Party to look at New York City and see that when voting rights are being attacked, we are expanding voter participation,” Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez, a sponsor of the bill and Democrat who represents the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan, told the New York Times. Rodriguez immigrated from the Dominican Republic and became a U.S. citizen in 2000.
Laura Wood, Chief Democracy Officer for the mayor’s office, said at a hearing on the bill in September that the law could violate the New York State Constitution, which states that voters must be U.S. citizens age 18 or older.
Mayor Bill de Blasio indicated he could veto the bill following the September hearing.
“We’ve done everything that we could possibly get our hands on to help immigrant New Yorkers—including undocumented folks—but…I don’t believe it is legal,” de Blasio told WNYC radio at the time.
Mayor-elect Eric Adams, however, submitted testimony to the September hearing in favor of the bill. “In a democracy, nothing is more fundamental than the right to vote and to say who represents you and your community in elected office…Currently, almost one million New Yorkers are denied this foundational right.”
The legislation was first introduced two years ago, but had not yet gained traction due to the legal concerns.
