Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-HI, cited on Twitter Tuesday a new video from Project Veritas as “further evidence of the need to ban ballot harvesting,” adding that the issue shouldn’t be partisan.

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.”

Stacy Abrams: ‘No such thing as heartbeat at 6 weeks’, ‘manufactured’ for men to ‘take control of a woman’s body’

“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” Abrams claimed during an event at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center in Atlanta last week. “It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”

As National Review reports, even her own man-hating rhetoric is antithetical to the website of Planned Parenthood which said a “very basic beating heart and circulatory system develop” during the fifth to sixth week of pregnancy.

Planned Parenthood later amended its website to more closely reflect pro-abortion messaging against heartbeat laws, which ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected. Now the site says a “part of the embryo starts to show cardiac activity” during that time.

Abrams is running for governor in Georgia in a rematch against incumbent Governor Brian Kemp. Abrams lost to Kemp in 2018 by more than 54,000 votes. Additionally, Abrams has never concededto Kemp and has claimed the 2018 election was “stolen from Georgians.”

Abrams words were to suggest that Georgia’s heartbeat law shouldn’t be referred to as the “Fetal Heartbeat Bill.” Her reasoning? Because “that’s medically false, biologically a lie.”

When The View co-host Alyssa Farah asked Abrams “Do you think there should be any legal limits on abortion, such as the third trimester or viability?” Abrams responded: “I believe that abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision…Arbitrary politically-defined timelines are deeply problematic because they ignore the reality of medical and physiological issues.”

“Abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision … The limit should not be made by politicians who don’t understand basic biology or apparently basic morality,” she added.

Kemp is up 6.6 percentage points in RCP polling average over Abrams.
