(John Ransom, Headline USA) An organization dedicated to fighting voter fraud said that cellphone data suggests 137,500 ballots in Wisconsin during the 2020 presidential campaign were illegally trafficked.
The group, True the Vote, bought billions of data points for cellphone towers and identified 138 people in Milwaukee, Racine and Green Bay, who made a total of 3,568 trips to ballot drop-boxes in those locations, according to MacIver News Service.
Under Wisconsin Statute 12.13, it’s illegal to “Receive a ballot from or give a ballot to a person other than the election official in charge.” Violators are subject to not more than $1000 fine and up to six months in jail.

True the Vote stopped short of calling the action voter fraud, but said that it indicated a pattern activity that was highly suggestive of abuse.
“No, we’re not saying that all of these ballots are illegal,” Catherine Engelbrecht, the founder of True the Vote, replied to a question asked by a legislator, reported Spectrum News.
“What we are saying, though, is that they are being exploited and we believe that’s tantamount to abuse,” Engelbrecht added.
True the Vote’s cyber expert Gregg Phillips said that by using geospatial imaging and pings from cellphone towers, experts can paint a pretty convincing picture of what people do in their day-to-day lives, according to the Epoch Times.
Phillips called ballot trafficking, “An organized crime against Americans.”
He noted that Wisconsin wasn’t the only state with a problem, and estimated that as many as 4.8 million votes were trafficked in this way in Georgia, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Michigan.
Engelbrecht responded to critics who said that she wasn’t being forthcoming enough with the data by saying that the purpose of the investigation wasn’t to identify and prosecute voter fraud, but to make the legislators aware of how the current system can be abused.
“To go further really takes us in another step that begins to name names, and that’s really not the purpose of this,” Engelbrecht said, according to Madison.com, Wisconsin’s flagship leftist news site.
