Group alleging ballot harvesting in Georgia 2020 election admits to lack of evidence

During a court hearing, a conservative group that alleged the presence of ballot harvesting in Georgia’s 2020 election admitted to not having any evidence to support their claim.

Channel 2 Action News initially covered this story in April 2022. At that time, an investigation was launched by Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s Office in response to allegations made by the group “True the Vote.” However, the group declined to disclose their source of information.

“They claimed to have received credible information, which we thoroughly examined and found to be valid. We inquired about the sources of this information, but they refused to disclose their identities, stating that they had spoken to us confidentially,” Raffensperger revealed during an interview with Channel 2 investigative reporter Mark Winne.

Last year, a judge in Atlanta’s Fulton County Superior Court signed an order that compelled True the Vote to submit the evidence it had gathered, including the names of individuals who served as sources of information, to state elections officials. The group’s refusal to cooperate with investigators had left the officials frustrated.

Attorneys representing True the Vote stated in their written response that the group does not possess any names or other documentary evidence to provide.

According to Mike Hassinger, a spokesperson for Raffensperger, True the Vote has once again demonstrated their lack of credibility and inability to provide any evidence to support their baseless allegations. Hassinger emphasizes that, similar to previous false claims made about Georgia’s 2020 election, True the Vote’s assertions of ballot harvesting have been thoroughly debunked.

True the Vote’s claims played a crucial role in the controversial film “2000 Mules,” created by conservative commentator and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza. However, an investigation by the State Election Board revealed that the surveillance camera footage, which the film used as evidence of ballot stuffing, actually depicted individuals casting ballots for themselves and their cohabiting family members, which is permitted under Georgia law.
