PILF Demands Florida County Election Supervisors Return Zuckbucks

Thanks to Governor DeSantis, Private Funds May No Longer be Spent in Florida’s Elections

(Alexandria, VA) – May 18, 2021: Today, the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) wrote to three Florida counties demanding their election supervisors disgorge CTCL funds or Zuckbucks by midnight on Thursday. Following the Governor’s signing of Senate Bill 90, Zuckbucks may no longer be spent in Florida’s elections.

“Thanks to the Governor’s leadership, Zuckbucks and other private funds can no longer be spent on election related expenses,” said PILF President J. Christian Adams. “We are taking action to ensure these counties give the unspent money back to the CTCL and do not use it to influence elections in 2022. If the money is not returned, the Foundation will take legal action.”
