As reported by Sara A. Carter, Project Veritas dropped a video Monday showing a ballot harvester allegedly associated with Rep. Ilhan Omar’s, R-MN, reelection campaign buying a voter’s absentee ballot.
“We don’t care illegal,” the harvester could be heard saying in the undercover video. “We are taking the money and we’ll vote for you.
Earlier this month, Gabbard warned voters of the potential dangers posed by ballot harvesting and she introduced House Resolution 8285 to address the issue.
The amendment to the Help America Vote Act of 2002 seeks “to prohibit payments under such Act to States which permit ballot harvesting, and for other purposes.”
“This is a system that allows for third parties to collect and deliver ballots for other people, potentially large numbers of people,” Gabbard said earlier informed voters. “Unfortunately, ballot harvesting has allowed for fraud and abuse to occur by those who could tamper with or discard ballots to try to sway an election for or against a certain candidate or party.”
She continued, “Our vote is our voice. So whether in the midst of a pandemic as we are now where mail in voting is likely to drastically increase or even in a normal election, no one, no one, should get in between a voter and the ballot box.”

State officials, CDC investigating monkeypox case in Florida
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with Florida state health officials, are investigating what is believed to be a case of monkeypox. A statement from the Florida Department of Health in Broward County stated the “case is related to international travel, and the person remains isolated.”
Late Friday a New York City resident also tested positive for the virus that causes monkeypox, and is the state’s first confirmed case. On Sunday, President Joe Biden made his first public statements about the outbreaks, saying the recent spread of monkeypox in at least 12 countries are “something that everybody should be concerned about.”
Axios reports a person was confirmed positive with the virus in Massachusetts, New York and “roughly a half dozen other cases” are “being monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
