Right-wing cable television network One America News Network on Monday ran a 30-second pre-recorded segment acknowledging that there was “no widespread voter fraud” by Georgia election workers during the election. presidential election 2020. Segment seems to be part of recently resolved in connection with a cyber defamation lawsuit by two such workers.
The segment notes that an investigation by state officials into unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud by former Presidents Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani has been fruitless. “The results of this investigation indicate that Ruby Freeman and Wandrea ‘Shaye’ Moss did not engage in vote rigging or criminal misconduct,” one narrator said.
The voiceover added: “A legal issue with this network and two election officers has been resolved to the satisfaction of the parties through a fair and reasonable settlement.
Freeman and her daughter, Moss, say they have been harassed online and in person after baseless rumors began circulating online, partly due to content published by conspiracy website The Gateway Pundit, which the couple also sued. In January 2021, when Trump pressured Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to try to “seek” votes to overturn the state’s election results, he mentioned Freeman’s name 18 times. Freeman was also visited by a journalist for Kanye West, who threatened her? in an attempt to extract a confession of electoral fraud.
And if that’s not enough, take a video of the couple doing their job was inflated by Rudy Giuliani—and Sean Hannity— Who falsely claimed that it represented “blatant, obvious, obvious” fraud. While speaking to Republicans in the Georgia House of Representatives about the video during a Zoom meeting in December 2020, Giuliani could be heard saying, “We should try to get this video on Newsmax and OANN.”
Freeman and Moss also sued Giuliani, and the case is still ongoing.
