(Natural News) An election official from Washington state’s Mason County dismissed claims of vote fraud in his newspaper columns. But he failed to disclose that his county had received funds from a nonprofit group linked to Facebook founder and Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
National Pulse Lead Investigative Reporter Natalie Winters wrote that Paddy McGuire, the auditor for Mason County, used his “Election Matters” column on Shelton-Mason County Journal to downplay claims of election fraud.
Winters found that Mason County received a cash grant from the Center for Tech and Civil Life (CTCL). Based on financial records, the Chicago-based nonprofit gave $32,904 to the Mason Country Treasurer “to support the safe administration of public elections during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
“CTCL used hundreds of millions of dollars from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s organization – the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative – to overrule local election officials and increase turnout in almost exclusively Democratic districts through mail-in voting in 2020. Proving the partisan conflict of interest, leaders from the CTCL overpowered and overruled election authorities and, through coercion, allegedly accessed mail-in ballots ahead of the election,” wrote Winters.

In his op-eds, McGuire dismissed any notions of foul play and vote fraud during the 2020 presidential elections. He also used his column to defend mail-in voting, claiming that it ensures “unparalleled safety and security.” But in reality, mail-in voting was rife with fraud and errors.
“I am a huge fan of vote-by-mail. I hope the safety, security and voter convenience that we enjoy here will one day be available across the country,” he wrote in a June 18, 2020 piece.
In another op-ed titled “We Prepare and We Plan,” the Mason County auditor defended his move to ban in-person election observers. He used the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic as an excuse to quell any safeguards that ensured election transparency.
“Those requirements include allowing observers to watch us and being open to the public so people can register to vote in person during the last two and a half weeks before the election. My office is in a building closed to the public by the Mason County Board of Commissioners, so even if I wanted it to be open, I can’t,” wrote McGuire.
McGuire insinuated that citizens could watch the live streams of votes being counted, instead of seeing the process in person, to avoid catching COVID-19.

Come November, the Mason County auditor also lauded the supposed “integrity” of the 2020 election. In a Nov. 26, 2020 op-ed titled “All Our Systems Just Worked During The Election,” he wrote: “There is no credible evidence that anyone interfered with the outcome of the election anywhere.” McGuire also claimed that delays in election results were normal and “getting final results takes time.”
Furthermore, he also praised Facebook for its “much more aggressive stance against mis- and disinformation in 2020 than they did in 2016.” McGuire’s stance in his column eventually paid off, with CTCL praising him for “building trust” in the election process. The nonprofit highlighted “Election Matters” for its efforts to help “present [the Mason County auditor’s] office as a source of trusted information” and “preemptively quell misinformation.”
A December 2020 report by the Thomas More Society’s Amistad Project elaborated on how money from the Meta CEO unduly influenced the 2020 elections. Its report revealed that Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan donated $350 million to CTCL’s Safe Elections project that promoted mail-in voting as a safer alternative to in-person voting. The couple also gave $69.5 million to the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Election Innovation and Research that “improperly influenced the 2020 presidential election on behalf of one particular candidate and party.”
Amistad Project Director Phill Kline wrote in the report’s executive summary: “The 2020 presidential election witnessed an unprecedented and coordinated public-private partnership. Funded by hundreds of millions of dollars from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and other [Big Tech] interests, activist organizations created a two-tiered election system that treated voters differently – depending on whether they lived in Democratic or Republican strongholds.”
Winters, meanwhile, concluded that McGuire’s bi-weekly column “is yet another piece of evidence showing how the CTCL and its Zuckerberg-funded backer aimed to change the electoral landscape in the U.S. in favor of mail-in voting.”
