Mark Zuckerberg's Meta, the parent company of Facebook, was fined a massive $24.7 million for violating campaign finance disclosure laws.

Meta was charged with 822 violations of Washington's 1972 Fair Campaign Practices Act, which required Meta to publish the names and addresses of people who purchase political ads, as well as other information like how the ads would be funded.
Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson stated that Meta had "intentionally disregarded" Washington's election transparency laws and thus argued for the most severe charges against Zuckerberg's company.
