There is a continued claim that there is no evidence of voter fraud in this country but Project Veritas just discovered one of the biggest schemes and it’s attached to none other than Rep. Ilhan Omar, one of the more famous members of “The Squad.”


According to Project Veritas, a ballot harvesting scheme in Minneapolis was uncovered by James O’Keefe and his undercover camera crew. The shocking discovery of hundreds of absentee ballots in an operative’s car. What’s more, ballots were taken directly from the elderly, and ballots belonging to young people were traded for cash.

Per the usual, those caught on camera openly bragged about the crime they were committing.

As you can see from the introductory video below, the fraud is hardly a secret around Minnesota Democrat campaigns.

“It’s an open secret,” said Omar Jamal, a Project Veritas Insider who exposed the scheme. “she [Omar] will do anything that she can do to get elected and she has hundreds of people on the streets doing that.”

According to Jamal, operatives take the ballots from voters, fill them out, and then get paid for doing this:


Jamal, as part of his participation in the investigation, interviewed a Somali-American who functions as a ballot harvester his community. In the interview, the harvester described how he was paid to vote in the Aug. 11 special election and primary, along with a Project Veritas undercover journalist.

The harvester said Somali-American vote-buying operatives from the Omar machine came to his apartment building to oversee the voter filling out the paperwork.

Omar operatives request the ballots and fill them out for the voters, he said.

“They come to us. They came to our homes. They said: ‘This year, you will vote for Ilhan,’” he said. “They said: ‘We will make the absentee ballots. We will fill out the forms for you and when you get them back, we will again fill it out and send it.”

There was no need to go to the voting site, because the Omar operatives told him: “You stay home and you will not go to the place.”

After the ballots are signed and documented the harvester said he got paid.

“When we sign the voting document and they fill it out is when they give us the money,” he said. “The minute we signed the thing [ballot] for the election. That’s when we get paid.”


“Ballot harvesting is real and it has become a big business,” said O’Keefe, CEO of Project Veritas. “Our investigation into this ballot harvesting ring demonstrates clearly how these unscrupulous operators exploit the elderly and immigrant communities—and have turned the sacred ballot box into a commodities trading desk.”

“We are showing Americans what is really going on in one of our great cities—but, it’s not me saying—we have the operators on tape saying it all themselves,” he added.
