Florida Passes Law Banning Private Funding of Election Procedures

On Thursday, Florida became the fifth state in the country to pass a law forbidding the use of private funds for various election processes and administration purposes, as reported by Breitbart.

Governor Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) signed Senate Bill 90, following the states of Georgia, Arizona, Idaho, and Louisiana in enacting such a ban. Several other states are considering similar bills, including Texas. The new law states that “no agency or state or local official responsible for conducting elections…may solicit, accept, use, or dispose of any donation…from an individual or a nongovernmental entity for the purpose of funding election-related expenses or voter education, voter outreach, or registration programs.”

Such laws have been passed in response to unprecedented levels of interference in the 2020 presidential election by far-left billionaires, chief among them being Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. Zuckerberg, along with his wife Priscilla Chan, poured over $350 million into a left-wing organization called the Center for Technology and Civic Life, which dispersed these funds into key swing states, in an effort to drive up voter turnout in deep blue areas of these states, such as big cities. States impacted by Zuckerberg’s interference include Texas and Florida.

These bills represent the larger movement in the aftermath of the 2020 election to pass laws protecting election integrity and cracking down on voter fraud. Several states, including Georgia, Florida, and Iowa, have passed other bills severely limiting practices that are ripe for voter fraud, such as mail-in voting and extended periods of early voting. There is overwhelming evidence that widespread voter fraud occurred in the 2020 election, enough to flip several crucial swing states away from President Donald Trump and in favor of Democrat Joe Biden.
