As accusations of voter fraud in the presidential election continue to fly fast and furiously, with both the Trump camp and Biden camp lawyered up for battle in the courts, one of President Trump’s top 2020 fundraisers has announced a reward of $1 million for evidence of confirmed voter fraud.
The Washington Examiner reported Tuesday evening that Bill White, a top Trump bundler based in Atlanta who helped raise millions of dollars for the president’s re-election campaign has, along with several associates, raised the million-dollar reward for confirmed cases. To that end, White said his group is forming an entity called “Concerned People for Election Integrity.”

White described a potential scenario — there have been multiple alleged cases — where someone is caught throwing away or otherwise destroying Trump ballots.
“If somebody knows who that guy is, and that person gets turned in and that was a real thing and it’s confirmed fraud, we’ll give a reward to that person. Anybody who has evidence of that can contact us.”
The Trump campaign has dispatched dozens of lawyers to Atlanta, as Washington Examiner noted, for a narrowly contested vote count led by Republican Rep. Doug Collins. White said Atlanta’s Trump campaign and GOP headquarters have received “literally hundreds of calls” reporting fraud since the election. As of the publishing of this article, as reported live by the Washington Post, Biden led Trump by 14,149 votes in Georgia with a total of nearly 5 million ballots counted.
Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick on Tuesday also offered $1 million in reward money for evidence of voter fraud, as reported by the Houston Chronicle.

Patrick said in a press release that anyone who comes forward with evidence that leads to an arrest and final conviction of voter fraud will be paid a minimum of $25,000. The reward money would come from Patrick’s campaign funds. In the release, Patrick said the effort is essential to more than just the 2020 presidential election.
“I support President Trump’s efforts to identify voter fraud in the presidential election and his commitment to making sure that every legal vote is counted and every illegal vote is disqualified. President Trump’s pursuit of voter fraud is not only essential to determine the outcome of this election, it is essential to maintain our democracy and restore faith in future elections.”
Washington Examiner highlighted one such potential case of fraud in Nevada, where, as I’m writing, Biden leads Trump by 36,726 votes, with a total of almost 1.4 million ballots counted. “In a sworn affidavit, an election worker in Clark County, Nevada, claims mail-in ballots were improperly filled out in a Biden-Harris van outside a polling place.” (Try to control your shock and amazement.)

The Wall Street Journal reported that as of Sunday, roughly 3,000 votes in Nevada had been challenged, with the Trump campaign objecting to some of the ballots, and state officials and military families saying many service members voted legally after being transferred.
