Ilhan Omar Supporters Probed Over Ballot Harvesting Allegations

Minnesota Democrat Representative Ilhan Omar is in the news about being associated with supporters accused of helping her through alleged ballot harvesting.

James O’Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas, broke the story via undercover video.

The New York Post reports:

“It’s an open secret. She will do anything that she can do to get elected and she has hundreds of people on the streets doing that,” Jamal told Project Veritas in an interview last week.

President Trump commented on social media and called for an investigation by the Department of Justice.

Others also commented including a couple residing in Minnesota.

The Minneapolis Police are looking into the allegations of ballot harvesting.

Fox News reports:

“The Minneapolis Police Department is aware of the allegations of vote harvesting. We are in the process of looking into the validity of those statements,” a department statement read on Monday. “No further information is available at this time on this.”

Allegations of ballot harvesting in Minnesota must be investigated and those involved must be held accountable.
