“As soon as I learned about this, I talked to our team and we are no longer working with this firm.”

Zuckerberg has also asked Facebook’s head of global affairs and communications, Sir Nick Clegg, to launch a review of Facebook’s use of political lobbying firms.

Mr. Kron was pleased with the reports that Sir Nick would conduct a review however, he is expressed his discontent and said that the move is “insufficient.”  He also called Mr Clegg’s appointment a “whack-a-mole” move by Facebook which fails to address the incompetence of top level management.

New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer added his vote to Trillium Asset Management’s motion for Zuckerberg to step down:

“Facebook plays an outsized role in our society and our economy. They have a social and financial responsibility to be transparent – that’s why we’re demanding independence and accountability in the company’s boardroom.

“An independent board chair is essential to moving Facebook forward from this mess, and to reestablish trust with Americans and investors alike.”

Stringer oversees New York City’s $160 billion pension fund. Reports revealed that State and city treasurers from Rhode Island, Illinois and Pennsylvania have also joined the motion seeking the ousting of Zuckerberg from Facebook.
