Georgia Deputy Secretary of State Jordan Fuchs, who occupies an official position under Brad Raffensperger created specifically for her, sits on the board of a non-profit created by attorney David Becker while working for Pew Charitable Trust — the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC).
Becker also created the Center for Election Integrity and Research, which reportedly took $50 million in ‘Zuckerbucks’, part of the over $400 million Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg injected into the 2020 U.S. general election cycle.
Becker’s LinkedIn page declares:
David is the CBS News Election Law Expert, contributing to the network’s coverage of Election 2020. His appearances in the media include The New York Times, The Washington Post, MSNBC, and NPR, and he has been published several times, including by the Stanford Social Innovation Review, the University of California, Berkeley, and The Hill.
These are hardly ‘middle of the road’ news outlets.
David Becker is the Executive Director and Co-Founder of The Center for Election Innovation & Research, leading this cutting-edge non-profit’s work to improve election administration through research, data, and technology. David created CEIR to be the first effort of its kind, with a proven track record of working with election officials and experts from around the country and across
Through its efforts, CEIR seeks to reverse the historical decline in voter turnout, and give election officials the tools they need to ensure that all eligible voters can vote conveniently in a system with maximum integrity.
CDMedia plans on investigating the efforts of CEIR in the 2020 election cycle.
Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR) (Founded by David Becker) is an electoral policy advocacy group which provides grants and conducts research to increase voting security and increase voter turnout. The organization was created in the wake of the 2016 election in response to foreign interference and alleged low voter turnout; in 2020, it took specific action to counter the effects of the pandemic coronavirus on the general elections, writes InfluenceWatch.org.
In August 2020, Facebook founder and billionaire Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, announced they were donating $50 million to CEIR, a sum 50 times larger than the organization’s 2017 revenues, declared Influence Watch.
Fuch’s role and possible communications with Becker are raising eyebrows in election integrity circles in Georgia.
“The Justice Society begs answers in Georgia: What the hell is the unelected and inexperienced Jordan Fuchs doing sitting on ERIC’s board allowing back door access to the State of Georgia?” demanded Michael Daugherty, head of TheJusticeSociety.com.
The Justice Society plans on filing Open Records requests for communications between Becker and Fuchs.
