Wisc. Probe Implicates Obama’s Campaign Manager in Zuckerbucks Bribery Scheme

(Ben Sellers, Headline USA) At an informational hearing Tuesday before the Wisconsin Assembly’s Committee on Campaigns and Elections, special counsel Michael Gableman revealed that the architect of the 2020 vote theft might be none other than David Plouffe, the one-time campaign manager for Barack Obama.

Gableman, a former justice with the Wisconsin Supreme Court, submitted a 150-page report that cited “numerous questionable and unlawful actions of various actors in the 2020 election,” including violations of the state’s bribery laws, reported The Federalist’s Margot Cleveland.

Plouffe, despite keeping a lower profile than fellow fraudsers like ex-Obama wingman Eric Holder, managed to write a book titled A Citizen’s Guide to Beating Donald Trump, which hit shelves on March 3, 2020, just 10 days before the coronavirus was declared a national emergency.

He revealed in the book that Democrats would need to implement extreme get-out-the-vote measures in three key battleground cities: Detroit, Milwaukee and Philadelphia.

“In 2020, those states will be political war zones,” said Gableman, paraphrasing the language Plouffe used in the book.

The health crisis played out perfectly for Plouffe to implement his political strategy, along with nearly half a billion dollars in support from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

It was “quite a coincidence he predicted COVID back then,” noted Gableman.

On March 13, 2020, Democrats had their pretense in hand and immediately set about sounding the alarm for enhanced voting measures such as mail-in ballot dropboxes.

Although the pandemic facade fooled nobody who was paying attention, leftist operatives, abetted by corrupt state and local voting officials, proceeded to enact their audacious electioneering scheme in plain sight, weaponizing the bureaucracy itself against anyone who tried to stop them.

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative—named for Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan—set up nonprofits including the Center for Tech and Civic Life and its lawfare arm, the Center for Election Innovation and Research ostensibly to promote safe voting in the pandemic era.

But rather than consult with health advisers or even individuals seasoned in election management, they instead instead called upon Plouffe—a partisan who had, quite literally, written the book on undermining Trump’s campaign—to disburse their funds.

Plouffe had become CZI’s head of policy and advocacy work in 2017, and according to Gableman he oversaw the funding to the nonprofits tasked with infiltrating local elections offices during the 2020 campaign.

In addition to the state that had been identified by Plouffe—Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania—the operation targeted other key battleground states, including Georgia and Arizona.

For Wisconsin, much of the money was funneled into the five largest cities: Milwaukee, Green Bay, Madison, Kenosha and Racine.

“There’s no record in front of us that any of the five cities needed any of the protective equipment or money,” that Zuckerberg was offering in order to safely manage their elections.

Worse yet, the funds came with strings attached, requiring local officials to seek prior approval from the Zuckerburg organizations for any outside consulting work.

The contract also had a bizarre stipulation that it should be used for historically disenfranchised communities—a leftist dogwhistle construed to mean low-income black and minority voters who skew heavily Democrat.

“It was payment for services rendered from Mark Zuckerberg to our five cities to turn out the African American vote,” said Gableman. “The inference we’re supposed to draw [is] that African Americans don’t vote and special accommodations must be made for them.”

That claim, he added, flew contrary to the fact that black voters have turned out in disproportionately large numbers in recent elections and that there was no history of voters being disenfranchised in Wisconsin.

“Though they are only 13 % of the US population, black voters are among the most stable voting bloc in politics,” Gableman said.

The funds also targeted nursing homes in the five cities, many of which had a 95- to 100% rate of return for absentee ballots.

In one poignant moment of the presentation, Gableman showed interviews with nursing home residents who struggled to answer basic questions demonstrating fitness to vote in the election.

Partisan officials in Wisconsin were quick to hop on board Zuckerberg’s gravy train, including Meagan Wolfe, the head of the Wisconsin Elections Commission.

Wolfe misled the public about the integrity of state voter rolls and, when grilled about the use of Zuckerbucks, claimed in testimony before the state legislature that she had no knowledge of the so-called grants.

However, Gableman pointed to a citizen complaint on Aug. 28, 2020 that called into question the work of the Zuckergberg organizations—the very same day that Wolfe emailed local election officials recommending that the contact George Soros-backed operative Michael Spitzer Rubenstein as a resource.

The goal of installing Rubenstein, according to email records, was so that outside leftist groups could “embed a middle-management employee inside the Milwaukee election commission.”

But afterward, one local elections clerk complained that “Spitzer Rubenstein and all these outsiders are taking over all my job duties,” said Gableman.

Former Brown County Clerk Sandy Juno previously went public with similar allegations about the infiltration of her office.

“As we got closer to the November election, we found out that this outside group had come in and was basically trying to redo our forms and documents that we use statewide,” Juno said in June 2021.

“… [T]hey were beginning to get involved with things that they didn’t have the expertise,” she continued. “… So they were breaking the consistency of documents and processes and procedures used statewide.”

Among his list of recommendations, Gableman said Wolfe should be fired.

“Ms. Wolfe should be removed from the WEC for cause,” he said.

“She has not been serving the way she should be serving,” he contiued. “She has not been cooperative. She has not been administering these elections in a fair and reasonable way.”

He further suggested that the entire commission should be dismantled due to its ambiguous role in the state’s elections.

“There is a unknowingness—which WEC capitalized on and always capitalizes on—to represent themselves as the director of Wisconsin elections when they want [local election clerks] to do something,” Gableman said.

But “When it comes time to face the music and answer questions about their conduct,” Wolfe and the organization insisted, “We had nothing to do with it,” he continued.

The question then becomes “What do you do,” said Gableman. “Why do we fund this through a $10 million grant?”
