Following Project Veritas Video, Minneapolis Police Investigating ‘Voter Fraud’ Allegations Involving Ilhan Omar
The Minneapolis Police Department announced Monday that an investigation was being opened into allegations of voter fraud involving a campaign worker for controversial Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar that was exposed on a Project Veritas video.
This isn’t the first time Omar’s been put in the hot seat for something like this, so here’s to hoping they get to the bottom of the situation and if there is indeed fraud, those responsible are held accountable.

An investigation from Project Veritas purports to show that “Omar is engaging in illegal ballot harvesting and a cash-for-ballots scheme in her district in Minneapolis,” Newsweek reported. “The group, which has targeted mainly liberal groups with ‘sting’ operations, posted a video late on Sunday showing what it claims is evidence of an illegal effort to harvest absentee ballots.”
ALLEGATIONS OF VOTER FRAUD BEING EVALUATED. ✅ The MPD is aware of the allegations of vote harvesting. We are in the process of looking into the validity of those statements. No further information is available at this time on this.

The video shows Liban Mohamed, brother of Minneapolis city council member Jamal Osman, saying in a Snapchat video: “Just today we got 300 for Jamal Osman. I have 300 ballots in my car right now. … Numbers don’t lie. You can see my car is full. All these here are absentee ballots. Look, all these are for Jamal Osman.”
Newsweek also added the following details:
An anonymous person, identified as a former Minneapolis political worker, told Project Veritas that Omar’s campaign deputy district director Ali Isse Gainey was coordinating ballot harvesting from elderly people in Charles Horn Towers, a housing complex in the city, before the Minnesota primary on August 8.
The same person claimed that women and young people were paid for their ballots during the primary.
The office of Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman stated on Monday, “The Hennepin County Attorney’s Office has received no information or cases involving so-called ballot harvesting in any elections held in Hennepin County this year. If Project Veritas has evidence of election law violations, they should provide it to the Minneapolis Police Department.”
President Trump also responded to the newly exploding scandal:
Voter fraud is a serious issue in this country right now, especially since we are getting very close to the November election where we will either reelect Donald Trump to the White House or watch our nation go up in flames if Biden takes the victory.
Lots of push is being done to make mail-in voting the primary way we do this election, under the guise of keeping people from spreading the coronavirus, but this is a truly horrific idea.
We’ve already seen instances of voter fraud through mail-in voting. It’s really something to be nervous about. Voting in-person isn’t 100 percent tamper-free, but it’s much safer than doing things through the mail.
Here’s to hoping this investigation uncovers the truth and corruption is exposed, no matter how high up it goes.
