(PartiallyPolitics.com) – The State Election Board in Georgia recently concluded its lengthy investigation into the alleged election fraud case that occurred during the 2020 presidential election. After careful examination and scrutiny, the board determined that the accusations leveled against two Fulton County poll workers, Ruby Freeman and Wandrea ‘Shaye’ Moss, were unfounded and lacked substantial evidence.
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger expressed his satisfaction with the board’s decision, emphasizing the diligence and dedication with which they approached their task of investigating claims of voter fraud. Raffensperger commended the election workers for their commitment and tireless efforts on the front lines, highlighting the importance of their role in ensuring fair and accurate elections.
The allegations against Freeman and Moss gained significant traction due to a social media post that circulated shortly after the election. The post claimed to have evidence of the two poll workers engaging in fraudulent activities. Unfortunately, these baseless allegations were amplified by former President Donald Trump and his attorney at the time, Rudy Giuliani, who seized upon the claims to fuel their narrative of widespread election fraud.
Central to their claims was a video that purportedly showed Freeman and Moss secretly scanning hidden ballots from a suitcase at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta. However, the State Election Board’s investigation thoroughly examined the video footage and determined that there was no wrongdoing or fraudulent activity on the part of the accused election workers.
In response to the defamation they faced as a result of these false accusations, Freeman and Moss decided to take legal action. They filed a defamation claim against Rudy Giuliani, seeking to hold him accountable for perpetuating the unfounded allegations. The outcome of this lawsuit remains pending, with the court tasked to make a fair and just determination regarding the impact of Giuliani’s statements on the reputations and livelihoods of the two election workers.
It is worth noting that former President Donald Trump himself referenced this specific case during his controversial phone call with Secretary of State Raffensperger in 2020. During the call, Trump urged Raffensperger to “find” the necessary votes to secure his victory in Georgia, making reference to the allegations against Freeman and Moss. The repeated mention of their names, a total of 18 times according to reports, further highlighted the significance and attention this particular case received.
The conclusion of the State Election Board’s investigation into the alleged election fraud case brings some closure to the controversy surrounding Freeman and Moss. However, it also serves as a reminder of the importance of verifying claims and basing conclusions on solid evidence rather than unfounded rumors and misinformation. The board’s dismissal of the accusations against the poll workers further reinforces the integrity and transparency of the electoral process in Georgia.
