New Project Veritas Video Exposes Ilan Omar Ballot Harvesting
The latest Project Veritas video shows Ilan Omar operatives partaking in a massive ballot harvesting scheme that is said to be "too big to stop."
Omar Jamal, a political insider in the city's Somali community reached out to Project Veritas to expose all the ballot harvesting.
“There’s a lot of people invested in this, you know, and they don’t care how they did it: ‘We win,’ and that’s it.” Jamal said.
“It’s an open secret,” he said. “she [Omar] will do anything that she can do to get elected and she has hundreds of people on the streets doing that.”
The footage shows a man named Liban Mohamed saying that he was collecting the ballots to help his brother win the city’s Aug. 11 special election for a vacant Ward 6 city council race—which was held the same day as the primary for Omar’s MN-05 congressional seat.
“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,” Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe III said in a statement accompanying the video release.
Jamal explained that Omar operatives request ballots and fill them out for the voters.
“They come to us. They came to our homes. They said: ‘This year, you will vote for Ilhan,’” he said. “They said: ‘We will make the absentee ballots. We will fill out the forms for you and when you get them back, we will again fill it out and send it.”
