(Headline USA) The mother–daughter team who helped orchestrate what appears to have been an illicit vote-counting operation at the State Farm Arena in Georgia’s Fulton County received an image makeover from the House’s corrupt Jan. 6 committee as it pushed the false claim that visual evidence of widespread fraud was, in fact, a nothingburger.
Despite media efforts to debunk the scandalous video of election official Ruby Freeman and her daughter, Wandrea “Shaye” Moss, there has been no formal probe to exonerate them of allegations that they pulled boxes of ballots from underneath tables and secretly scanned—and double-scanned—them after having sent media and poll watchers home under the false pretense of a burst waterline.
On the contrary, several independent investigations have revealed the highly intricate and far-reaching efforts that a network of left-wing activist groups—incuding those funded by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg—undertook to flip the traditionally red state by any means necessary.
An independent audit that took place in Fulton County on Election Day 2020 generated a damning report that highlighted some of the egregious breaches of protocol by mostly left-wing officials in several Atlanta-area precincts, including the violations that occurred at State Farm Arena.
Evidence from those investigations prompted Georgia’s efforts last year to close its election-integrity loopholes in a raft of legislation that national Democrats used every ounce of energy and influence to prevent, albeit unsuccessfully, with President Joe Biden calling the laws “Jim Crow on steroids.”
An ongoing state probe into ballot fraud led by Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger—who also testified before the J6 committee this week—was spurred by the release of footage in the True the Vote/Dinesh D’Souza documentary 2000 Mules.
After a toilet overflow prompted an official shutdown of the ballot counting at State Farm Arena around 10:30 p.m. on Nov. 3, 2020, Freeman—who is linked to anti-integrity activist Stacey Abrams—was one of four workers who remained behind to continue counting the ballots.
She was subsequently outed due to identifying information in one of the security videos that connected back to her Fayetteville apparel shop, Ruby’s Unique Treasures.
After online sleuths discovered a social-media post in which Freeman boasted about her daughter’s expression while lording over a white election official, Moss was identified as the precinct’s “Supervisor of registration,” the Gateway Pundit reported.
Moss testified Tuesday about how her life was upended when former President Donald Trump and his allies publicly exposed them.
She claimed she received messages “wishing death upon me. Telling me that I’ll be in jail with my mother. And saying things like, ‘Be glad it’s 2020 and not 1920.’”
“A lot of them were racist,” Moss claimed. “A lot of them were just hateful.”
The committee also played testimony from Freeman, who sat smirkingly behind Moss in the hearing room.
“There is nowhere I feel safe. Nowhere,” Freeman told the committee in the prerecorded video. “Do you know how it feels to have the president of the United States target you? The president of the United States is supposed to represent every American, not to target one.”
“But he targeted me,” she added.
Moss claimed several people showed up at the home of Moss’ grandmother to make a citizen’s arrest.
“I’ve never ever heard her or see her cry, ever in my life,” Moss testified. “She called me screaming at the top of her lungs … saying people are at her home.”
“I just felt so helpless,” she added.
The barrage of threats against the two county workers mounted after Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani played surveillance footage of them counting ballots in a Georgia Senate committee hearing on Dec. 10, 2021.
Giuliani said the footage showed the women “surreptitiously passing around USB ports as if they are vials of heroin or cocaine.” What they were actually passing, Moss told the committee, was a ginger mint.
Moss and Freeman eventually filed a defamation lawsuit against the One America News network and Giuliani last December. The case against OAN has since been dismissed with an undisclosed settlement.
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who led Thursday’s hearing, noted that Trump mentioned Freeman’s name 18 times in a call Raffensperger. At one point Trump called Freeman a “professional vote scammer and hustler.”
“This has affected my life in a major way,” claimed Moss, who had been an election official for 10 years. “In every way. All because of lies. All for me doing my job. The same thing I’ve been doing forever.”
She testified that she wasn’t able to return home for two months and felt homeless.
“The point is this: Donald Trump didn’t care about the threats of violence,” claimed RINO Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, in her opening remarks Tuesday. “He did not condemn them, he made no effort to stop them; he went forward with his fake allegations anyway.”
Raffensperger and his deputy, Gabe Sterling, also testified about the relentless attacks they and their colleagues faced for their initial refusal to investigate evidence of vote fraud when it might have affected the outcome.
Raffensperger claimed his wife had received “disgusting” text messages that were sexual in nature, and that supporters of the president’s had broken into the home of Raffensperger’s daughter-in-law, where she was staying with her children.
Sterling recalled the moment in December 2020 that pushed him to speak out. It was a tweet about a staffer for Dominion voting machines that said “you committed treason. May god have mercy on your soul.” It included a slowly twisting GIF of a noose.
“And for lack of a better word, I lost it,” Sterling told the committee. “I just got irate.”
That day Sterling gave an impassioned plea at a press conference pleading with Trump to condemn the threats against election workers. “This has to stop,” he said.
A recent report from the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency finally acknowledged that software vulnerabilities made Dominion’s systems vulnerable to hacking—concerns that Democrats also had relayed prior to the election.
Trump’s CISA head, Chris Krebs, downplayed those concerns a week after the November 2020 election by claiming, contrary to evidence, that it “was the most secure in American history.”
