Project Veritas has just released the explosive results of an investigation exposing a massively fraudulent ballot harvesting operation linked to Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota.
The investigation revealed paid workers illegally gathering absentee ballots from elderly Somali immigrants – and in some cases forcing them to fill them out a certain way.
Video footage captured by Project Veritas shows an operative, Liban Mohamed, bragging about collecting hundreds of ballots.
“Numbers do not lie. Numbers do not lie. … You can see my car is full. All these here are absentee ballots. Can’t you see? Look at all these; my car is full,” Mohamed can be heard saying in the video.
Mohamed continues saying, “Money is the king in this world . . . and a campaign is driven by money.”
The Veritas video includes testimony from a whistleblower, Omar Jamal, a Minneapolis community leader and chair of the city’s Somali Watchdog Group who says that Rep. Ilhan Omar is involved in a “cash-for-votes scheme” and that her ballot harvesting is an “open secret” in Minnesota.
“She [Ilhan Omar] will do anything that she can do to get elected and she [Ilhan Omar] has hundreds of people on the streets doing that,” said Jamal.
Also implicating Ilhan Omar’s campaign in the scheme is an anonymous Minneapolis-based former political worker, who told Project Veritas that, before Minnesota’s primary elections, August 8, ballot harvesters “took every single ballot” from elderly people in a Minneapolis public housing complex — the Charles Horn Towers.
“Knock on the door and say, ‘your ballots come? Give it to me.’ ”
She alleges Ilhan Omar’s long-serving staffer, campaign deputy district director Ali (Isse) Gainey, was “coordinating everything.”
Gainey, “who is working in Ilhan’s campaign, is the one who is managing the voting place. They bring them. They line them. They put the open ballots in there and then they take them in and say, ‘Here,’ and the people mark [the ballots].”
“They have perfected this system,” she said. “They will tell you we are applying for your ballot. They take a picture of your social security and your driver’s license. They have a database. When the ballot comes, they track it. Sometimes, they make fake emails. They track the ballot. Then they come and pick up the ballot, unopened.”
Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe commented on the groundbreaking evidence uncovered by the non-profit organization. “Ballot harvesting is real, and it has become a big business. Our investigation into this ballot harvesting ring demonstrates clearly how these unscrupulous operators exploit the elderly and immigrant communities — and have turned the sacred ballot box into a commodities trading desk.”
O’Keefe said, “We are showing Americans what is really going on in one of our great cities — but, it is not me saying — we have the operatives on tape saying it all themselves.”
Project Veritas said its investigation found three locations inside Ward 6, a ballot harvesting triangle, where the scheme operates: The Riverside Plaza apartments, the senior citizen community at Horn Towers, and the Minneapolis Elections and Voter Services office at 980 E. Hennepin Ave., which also functions as a voting location and ballot drop-off site.
Jared Edge, the chief legal officer for Project Veritas, said that Mohamed and other ballot harvesters could face heavy penalties for their alleged violations of the law.
President Trump took to Twitter to demand an investigation into this highly illegal voter scandal taking place in Democrat led Minnesota.
“This is totally illegal. Hope that the U.S. Attorney in Minnesota has this, and other of her many misdeeds, under serious review??? If not, why not??? We will win Minnesota because of her, and law enforcement. Saved Minneapolis & Iron O Range!”
Minnesota could be a key piece of the election for either candidate, with Donald Trump in 2016 just narrowly being defeated in the Democrat stronghold which has not gone red in a presidential election since 1972.
The state’s 10 electoral votes seem to be even more up for grabs this year as residents have grown tired of the Democrat sponsored chaos that has plagued the state. Democrats, however, are looking to deploy cheating tactics like the one Omar has been perfecting in order to diminish the president’s chances of turning the state red.
