Georgia 'Ballot Trafficker' Blows Whistle on Illegal 2020 Election Harvesting Scheme
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announces explosive discovery
A so-called "ballot trafficker" has reportedly come forward and blown the whistle to authorities in Georgia regarding a huge illegal vote harvesting scheme during the 2020 presidential election.
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced the explosive discovery, revealing his office has launched an investigation into the alleged racket.
Allegations of ballot trafficking in the state mounted in September when radio host John Fredericks reportedly obtained video footage of the criminal operation taking place.
Fredericks detailed the video evidence on Steve Bannon's War Room show at the time.
According to Fredericks, investigators were also in possession of the video that allegedly shows 242 operatives dumping tens of thousands of ballots into drop boxes in the middle of the night in locations across Georgia.
The video appeared to show the operatives emptying their backpacks of ballots into the drop boxes in the middle of the night.
On November 30 last year, the group True the Vote submitted the video as part of a complaint to Raffensperger’s office.
The complaint details digital data of 242 people making visits to drop boxes to dump mail-in-ballots, Just the News reported.
The complaint alleges that about 40 percent of the trips were occurring between midnight and 5:00 a.m.
The True the Vote evidence reportedly includes phone data correlated with the video that shows individuals dropping multiple ballots at 5,662 ballot drops during the 2020 pandemic.
President Trump lost the state of Georgia by a 12,000 vote margin.

The allegation is corroborated by video evidence and testimony from a witness who claims he was paid for ballots.
Breitbart News reported on a True the Vote document in August:
In other words, what the document says is that True The Vote was able to take cell phone ping data on a mass wide scale and piece together that several people—suspected ballot harvesters—were making multiple trips to multiple drop boxes, raising potential legal questions in a number of these states.
Raffensperger told Just the News:
"We do have some information.
"And we are going to investigate that.
"We did deploy drop boxes that were under 24/7 surveillance, and because they were then that really, you know, can indicate who dropped that information off, and we’re really just going through that."
“If people give us, you know, credible allegations, we want to make sure that we do that,” Raffensperger continued.
“And we have that right now as an ongoing investigation.”
"That will be one of the processes we’re looking at if we have people that don’t want to come forward for whatever concern, because we really need to get to the bottom of it.
"We just can’t let it sit there and lie.
"So if it comes to that, then that’s probably the next step that we’d be looking at."
On Tuesday, Just the News reported that one of the ballot traffickers was identified and is cooperating with investigators.
According to Just the News, the man has revealed he was paid thousands of dollars to harvest ballots in Georgia.
Just the News reported that investigators "interviewed a Georgia man who admitted he was paid thousands of dollars to harvest ballots in the Atlanta metropolitan area during the November election and the lead-up to Jan. 5, 2021 runoff for Georgia’s two U.S. Senate seats, which were both captured by Democrats and ended GOP control of Congress.
"The group has yet to identify the cooperating witness to state authorities, referring to him in the complaint simply as John Doe."
Raffensperger’s decision to open a probe into the security of elections comes as Gov. Brian Kemp (R) decided not to open an investigation into the matter last spring.
Both Raffensperger and Kemp have come under heavy fire from Trump for not conducting thorough investigations into the reported election fraud, though Raffensperger’s Tuesday announcement drew a statement from Trump.
“Wow, big news on Georgia election fraud. Many other states to follow!” Trump said in a press release.
In August, Trump told Breitbart that True the Vote’s investigation is imperative while noting that voting in person with an ID should be made law in Georgia.
“This is a big deal. This is a big deal,” Trump said about True the Vote’s investigation.
"I know — I’ve been hearing about it."
"Voter ID is very important,” Trump continued.
"Georgia’s new law is not strong.
"Texas’s new law is strong.
"Georgia’s new law is not strong because the governor of Georgia didn’t want it to be strong.
"It’s better than it was, but it’s not strong.”
"Frankly, going to paper ballots is better than anything you can do — paper ballots.
"Going to paper ballots.
"You know, Canada uses paper ballots.
"I think going to paper ballots would be the best thing if you want to have accurate elections."
