BUSTED? MPD Investigating allegations of voter ballot harvesting in Ilhan Omar’s District
The Minneapolis Police Department is investigating claims by citizen journalist group Project Veritas, which made undercover video public suggesting that individuals who claimed to be tied to Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., were involved in illegal ballot harvesting before the election, as reported earlier.
The police department issued a statement Monday saying that they “are in the process of looking into the validity of those statements.”No further information is available at this time on this.”
James O’Keefe, the founder fo Project Veritas’ published the latest videos on Twitter and Instagram Sunday night. It’s less than 35 days before the November, 3 presidential election.
The Minneapolis Star-Tribune, noted that the state’s Supreme Court recently allowed voting to proceed without a three-person limit on the number of ballots any one individual can collect.
“A Minnesota law that limited to three the number of voters any one person can help cast a ballot in person will remain unenforceable this election, the state Supreme Court has ruled.
In an expedited four-page ruling last week, Chief Justice Lorie Skjerven Gildea affirmed a July order by Ramsey County District Judge Thomas Gilligan that sided with a legal challenge filed earlier this year by two Democratic campaign committees.
A Minnesota law that limited to three the number of voters any one person can help cast a ballot in person will remain unenforceable this election, the state Supreme Court has ruled.”
Fox News reported that President Donald Trump has asked the Justice Department to investigate the claims. Those claims also include a cash-for-ballot scheme, stated O’Keefe in the expose videos.
“This is totally illegal,” Trump said Sunday. “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!”
Omar’s opponent in the race Republican candidate Lacy Johnson, a successful businessman, stated on Twitter that “Ilhan has yet to respond to the illegal ballot harvesting evidence released by @Project_Veritas.”
“The silence is shocking,” Johnson added.
