Steve Bannon Proven Right After New Report Comes Out

(PresidentialInsider.com)- Last week, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger confirmed that his office has launched an investigation into a whistleblower allegation that systemic ballot harvesting occurred during both the 2020 election and the subsequent Senate runoff.

Georgia law strictly prohibits third-party groups to pick up and deliver ballots on behalf of voters. And in 2019, Raffensperger led a successful effort to strengthen Georgia’s ban on ballot harvesting ahead of the 2020 presidential election.

In late November, Raffensperger’s office received a detailed complaint from True the Vote. In its complaint, True the Vote had assembled evidence that dozens of activists working with nonprofit groups were collecting and delivering thousands of absentee ballots to temporary ballot drop boxes throughout the state, often in the wee hours of the morning.

The group provided the Secretary of State’s office with video footage from surveillance cameras as well as geolocation data for the cell phones of over 200 activists seen on surveillance video. True the Vote also interviewed a Georgia man who admitted he was paid thousands of dollars to harvest ballots in Atlanta both during the 2020 election and the January Senate runoff.

True the Vote is not alleging the ballots were fraudulent, but it doesn’t matter. Ballot harvesting is illegal in Georgia.

After the 2020 election, the Secretary of State’s office did not review surveillance video from ballot drop boxes because a statistical analysis from a federally-funded research lab determined there were “no suspicious indicators of ballot harvesting.”

But with this True the Vote complaint, now more than a year after the election, the Secretary of State’s office is finally investigating.

Some critics falsely claimed that Raffensperger unilaterally created the use of ballot drop boxes in Georgia as part of a legal settlement he signed with Democrat Stacey Abrams and other activists. However, according to Just the News, Georgia election laws have for years allowed counties to use absentee ballot drop boxes, but none ever did until 2020.

When activists pushed for ballot drop boxes in 2020, Raffensperger and the State Elections Board passed an emergency rule to add protections, including the requirement that ballot drop boxes be covered by surveillance cameras.
