This week, an undercover video revealed a ballot harvesting scheme in the Minnesota district of Rep. Ilhan Omar. Democratic operatives connected to the socialist congresswoman were boasting of how many ballots they were “collecting” ahead of the general election. President Trump called on the state attorney to investigate. Now, we know the police are getting involved.
Project Veritas, a conservative undercover journalistic group, is known for upending the left with their bombshell videos. They have captured numerous Democrats scheming and admitting their wild agenda, since before the 2016 Election. This time, they capture video of people connected with Ilhan Omar, admitting they are conducting a ballot harvesting scheme in her district.
The videos, which were put up this week, quickly went viral with the first one receiving over 5 million views. Of course, the liberal media refused to talk about it. President Trump, however, quickly called on the DOJ to get involved.
President Trump called on the U.S. Attorney in Minnesota to make a serious review of these allegations. It seems many Americans are concerned about the possibility that a congresswoman—who has had her fair share of controversy—might be involved in an illegal ballot harvesting scheme.
While what the DOJ is doing right now remains a mystery, at least one law enforcement group is taking action.
The Minneapolis Police Department is investigating claims by right-wing activist group Project Veritas that individuals tied to Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., engaged in illegal ballot harvesting before the election.
“The Minneapolis Police Department is aware of the allegations of vote harvesting. We are in the process of looking into the validity of those statements,” a department statement read on Monday. “No further information is available at this time on this.”

Concerns over voter fraud are reaching a fevered pitch this year. President Trump has sounded the alarm that widespread mail-in voting can be easily manipulated by fraudsters looking to cheat the election. Ballot harvesting is a common tactic, where political operatives can collect a large number of mail-in ballots, alerting the votes or coercing voters into picking their candidate.
Democrats have routinely claimed that voter fraud does not exist. Yet we’ve seen in recent elections how ballot harvesting can be used to sway the outcome—especially in local and close races.
How will Democrats explain away what we all saw in that Project Veritas video? One of Omar’s buddies was openly admitting what they were doing. He accused the socialist of doing “anything she can do to get elected.” He even said she “has hundreds of people on the streets doing that.”
Might explain how a radical woman like Omar was elected in the first place, huh? Or how a woman who insulted the victims of 9/11 could even expect to have a chance at being re-elected?
We need more than just the Minneapolis Police Department on this. We need the DOJ to conduct its own task force to root out any signs of voter fraud across the country.
Until we know that’s happening, we better protect our ballots tooth and nail.
