CRC in the News

2020 Year in Review

CRC Launches Work On Election Integrity

In mid-2020, CRC exposed how the Center for Tech and Civic life, a nonprofit founded by veteran organizers of the Democratic Party and armed with $350 million in funding from Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg, distributed grants directly to local election boards to “help” conduct the 2020 election.

Immediately after the election, our research showed how these supposedly nonpartisan grants helped Democrats far more than Republicans.

CRC president Scott Walter has testified before the Georgia and Arizona state legislatures on Center for Tech and Civic Life’s activities.
