Wait… Haven’t we been told repeatedly that voter fraud doesn’t happen?

True The Vote, a voter integrity group, has turned over evidence to the Secretary of State in Georgia that includes surveillance videos and cellphone geolocation data that appear to show a network of over 200 activists that were dropping multiple ballots into drop boxes in the middle of the night.

The evidence along with a detailed complaint that said that activists were working with nonprofit groups to gather and drop off numerous ballots was sent to Georgia Secretary of State John Raffensperger’s office along on November 30.

Georgia law forbids third parties from collecting and dropping off ballots for voters — “ballot harvesting” which some leftwing activists continue to push to legalize.

To his credit, Raffensperger has fought against leftwing activists — including Democrat lawyer Mark Elias — who want to overturn the ban on ballot harvesting in the Peach State.

Raffensperger made headlines after the 2020 Presidential election when he reviewed and rejected a claim by former President Donald Trump that there was widespread voter fraud in Georgia. The Corporate Media clutched their pearls over the audio of the phone call that was released.

Both Reffensperger and Governor Brian Kemp have been heavily criticized by the former President for not thoroughly investigating his claim of rampant voter fraud in the 2020 election.

Now we’re in 2022, and it appears that Raffensperger’s quick dismissal of widespread voter fraud might have been a mistake.

True The Vote’s complaint includes geolocation data of 242 individuals that appear to have made 5,662 ballot drops with multiple ballots at drop boxes. Of those drops, 40% occurred between the hours of midnight and 5 am.

According to a man who told True The Vote that he was involved in the ballot harvesting scheme, the tactic was used in the lead up to the 2020 Presidential election as well as the January 5, 2021, Senate runoff where both seats went to Democrats.

Just The News reports:

The group informed the secretary its evidence included video footage from surveillance cameras placed by counties outside the drop boxes as well as geolocation data for the cell phones of more than 200 activists seen on the tapes purportedly showing the dates and times of ballot drop-offs, according to documents reviewed by Just the News.

The group also said it interviewed a Georgia man who admitted he was paid thousands of dollars to harvest ballots in the Atlanta metropolitan area during the November election and the lead-up to Jan. 5, 2021 runoff for Georgia’s two U.S. Senate seats, which were both captured by Democrats and ended GOP control of Congress. The group has yet to identify the cooperating witness to state authorities, referring to him in the complaint simply as John Doe.

The group does not allege the ballots delivered by couriers were fraudulent. Nonetheless, lawful ballots delivered by third-parties to drop boxes would run afoul of Georgia’s law.

Investigative Journalist John Solomon broke the news on Tuesday evening on Real America News.

The Just The News article notes that although Kemp and Raffensperger rejected claims of widespread voter fraud in 2020, Fulton County, Georgia has had problems with election mismanagement in the past and the same problems continued in 2020.

True the Vote’s complaint offered Raffensperger’s office access to what are characterized as detailed phone records and surveillance video it said would show as many as 242 people repeatedly made trips to the drop boxes to deliver ballots in what it described as a mass “ballot trafficking operation.” The aspect of the complaint that the secretary’s office believed merited attention was the allegation the group had spoken to a man who admitted he and others engaged in ballot harvesting.

True The Vote purchased cell phone data that showed some individuals making repeated trips to ballot drop boxes and matched that up with surveillance video.

Kevin Brock, the FBI’s former intelligence chief, explained that smartphone data can be a useful tool in investigations. He explains how it works, “When users download an app, they agree to conditions that allow companies to track a smartphone’s location. Most of this data is resold to advertisers, but when someone engages in illegal activity it can be subject to subpoenas and other court ordered process as well.”

Using a tactic increasingly used by the FBI and the intelligence community to solve crimes or national security threats, the group said it bought commercially available geospatial mobile device data showing the locations of suspected ballot harvesters’ cell phones in the vicinity of the ballot drop boxes at the times people appeared on the surveillance footage stuffing multiple ballots into a drop box…

…The phone data bought by True the Vote overlaid with video suggested 242 people engaged in a total of 5,662 ballot drops, an average of 23 runs per alleged harvester, the group alleged in the complaint.

The group told Raffensperger’s office the video surveillance — though sometimes grainy and distant — showed numerous instances of people stuffing large numbers of ballots into the boxes, some with so many ballots in hand that some of the envelopes dropped to the ground. Some people were allegedly observed taking pictures of themselves at the boxes after delivering ballots, an action the group said may have been required to receive payments.

The complaint also included claims that NGOs were involved in the scheme, but doesn’t name which ones.

“John Doe described a network of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that worked together to facilitate a ballot trafficking scheme in Georgia,” the group said in its complaint.

“John Doe’s assignment included collecting ballots, both from voters in targeted neighborhoods and from NGOs that had their own ballot collection processes, delivering those ballots to other NGOs, picking up designated ballot bundles from the same group of NGOs, and depositing ballots into drop boxes spanning six counties in the metro Atlanta area,” the group added.

“Each drop box delivery would typically include between 5 to 20 ballots,” the complaint alleged. “John Doe described a payment validation process which involved taking cell phone pictures of the drop box where ballots were deposited.”

The group’s complaint did not identify John Doe by name, the nonprofits involved or other participants. Raffensperger’s office is expected to use subpoenas to secure that specific information as part of the probe, officials said.

Well, this is certainly an interesting development.

Do any of those NGOs have anything to do with a certain Big Tech CEO who was helping to “secure” the 2020 election?

That would be interesting to know, wouldn’t it?

While the harvested ballots might have been filled out by eligible voters, let’s recall that Margot Cleveland reported that it appeared that approximately 10,300 illegal votes were cast in Georgia for the November 2020 election.

Back in 2012, the New York Times said that Absentee Voting was ripe for fraud — but suddenly changed their tune in 2020.

Gee, what could have changed?

Meanwhile, the leftwing activists want to “secure” elections by removing voter ID rules, allowing ballot harvesting, increasing drop boxes, universal unsolicited mail-in ballots, not cleaning up voter rolls, and allowing a wide window during which to vote. Most voters oppose these measures.

And the Democrats in D.C. want to federalize these rules with their Priority 1 legislation — HR 1, what they call the “For The People Act”, though a better name for it would be “The Corrupt Politicians Act.”

The ballot harvesting is a real problem, however. It’s unclear how the votes were collected and if the voter was coerced or incentivized to vote a particular way.

While there are certainly cases of voter fraud, leftists and their sycophantic hacks in the Corporate Media insist that the practice isn’t “widespread” and any attempt to secure elections is “voter suppression.”

Read this 2020 piece to understand why the “widespread” shouldn’t be the only criteria we use when we look at voter fraud.

But, as you can imagine, the left are going to spin this as “racism” or something because it’s happening in Georgia where the election integrity measures backed by Republicans were labeled “Jim Crow 2.0” by the Shambling Husk of Mediocrity that sits at the kiddie desk in the replica of the White House when his handlers trot him out to pose as President.

We can only hope and pray that some real justice happens here and that we’ll get some real answers to what appears to be “widespread” illegal ballot harvesting in Georgia.
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
