Communist YouTuber Registered to Vote in $10.8 Million Home
The self-described “Marxist pig” who brought about YouTube’s “Adpocalypse” due to his inability to take criticism has been revealed to come from a family of multimillionaires, an investigation from the New York Post’s Jon Levine has found.
As Levine reports: Like any good online socialist, Maza raises money for his internet presence through a Patreon account, where “comrades” — a word he uses to describe his supporters — can fund him in increments of $2, $5 and $10 a month. But if Maza wants to start eating the rich, he may have to begin with his own family. Through his clan, the millennial firebrand is connected to multiple Florida mega-mansions, a $7.1 million pad on the Upper West Side purchased under an LLC — and a yacht by luxury boat-maker Donzi.
Maza’s mother, Vivian Maza, was one of the first employees at Ultimate Software, a Florida-based behemoth that now employs more than 5,000 people. Starting in 1990 as an office manager, she ultimately rose to become the group’s chief people officer in 2004. In addition to her day job, Vivian Maza also developed a very close personal relationship with company founder Scott Scherr — so close that an independent assessment of the company in 2016 cited the relationship as a “corporate governance concern.”
The report said the pair were believed to be “more than just co-workers” and have a “familial relationship.” The two later became engaged, and the couple has lived together for years, with Scherr being a de facto stepfather to Carlos.
Vivian currently resides full-time in a $4.4 million, two-bedroom, three-bath luxury condo in Fort Lauderdale, which she lists as her primary residence, according to a 2020 report filed by LCH 23, LLC — which she controls. The same LLC purchased a $7,125,000 condo on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in November 2017.
The home listed on Maza’s voter registration was a Boca Raton waterfront property that recently sold for $10.8 million (pictured below).
I can’t mock Maza for having lived in his parent’s basement, because that basement is probably nicer than my house. While Maza has responded and claimed that the only support he receives from his mother is a $10 monthly contribution to his Patreon account, his soon-to-be stepfather is also credited as a contributor on his videos. And as the Post’s report mentioned, Maza is fortunate enough to have mommy and (soon-to-be-step) daddy subsidizing his rent.
Carlos Maza's soon-to-be stepfather is Scott Scherr, founder of Ultimate Software.

There is, of course, nothing wrong with being wealthy or coming from a wealthy family. But Maza sure thinks there is – to the point where he believes anyone in his situation (except himself) can’t be taken seriously. In an assault on irony, Maza recently posted his “damning” findings that Carville lives in a house as big as the one he just lived in, and thus didn’t deserve to be taken seriously on anything.
You really have to respect this guys grift.
Constantly dressing in normal clothes on TV to feign relatability while living like this. Masterful con artist. pic.twitter.com/vwWJUq7Kce
