By Andres McRobotface
NEW YORK—In the wake of news that the founder of the social network had accepted a payment for speeches to the Clinton Foundation from a Turkish businessman, sources confirmed Wednesday that Facebook is now under investigation for allegedly accepting donations from the Clinton Foundation in exchange for displaying ads. “After an extensive review of all the evidence, we have determined that Facebook knowingly provided its users with a platform to engage in illegal activity,” said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, adding that the company has since taken significant measures to reduce the site’s ability to host ads, including disabling the ability to post updates, deleting the entire site’s message board, and scrapping the company’s entire advertising budget. “At Facebook, we are committed to ensuring that users experience the genuine excitement and excitement that comes from supporting a candidate for president. We have also made it clear that in exchange for this money, we would not be selling ads on Facebook.” At press time, the company was publicly apologizing for how it handled the matter and promising to work with Congress to ensure the site does not happen again.
