UNITED STATES— A whistle-blower by the alias of “John Doe” admitted to receiving funds for ballot stuffing (a form of electoral fraud) in the state of Georgia for the 2020 general election and the runoff election that followed.
It is illegal for any third party to pick up or drop off ballots in Georgia known as ballot harvesting. Reports indicate that over 240 people made a drop-off of over 5,000 ballots for the 2020 election.
John Doe admitted being paid $45,000 to harvest 4,500 ballots in the Atlanta metropolitan area.
Georgia Secretary of State (SOS), Brad Raffensperger acknowledged the reports of ballot harvesting and agreed to an investigation. Raffensperger gave the following statement to the National Desk reporter, Jan Jeffcoat.
“Credible evidence was given to us that people were harvesting ballots. This information was provided to us and they said there’s a witness, a ‘John Doe.’ And so we’re looking at subpoenaing that person to get the information.”
Raffensperger previously refuted any claims of voter fraud from former President Donald Trump and the Republican party.
Raffensperger’s office reportedly received a complaint from the conservative voter integrity group, True the Vote. The report included evidence with video footage of thousands of absentee ballots being collected and dropped off between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m.
According to the SOS web page, Raffensperger launched an investigation into several groups including; America Votes, Vote Forward, and The New Georgia Project. “Have repeatedly and aggressively sought to register ineligible out-of-state or deceased voters,” said Raffensperger prior to Senate runoff elections.
“I have issued clear warnings to groups and individuals working to undermine the integrity of elections in Georgia through false and fraudulent registrations.” Raffensperger continued. “The security of Georgia’s elections is of the utmost importance.”
A few minutes ago in Chatham County, our observers watched an unidentifiable woman mix over 50 ballots into the stack of uncounted absentee ballots.

During the election, Canyon News reached out to individuals who moved to Alabama from Georgia who were concerned that their data would be used to vote for Joe Biden while they were voting for Donald Trump in Alabama. The couple never got confirmation that their names were used on a fraudulent ballot and did not respond for comment before print.
Raffensperger is running for re-election as Secretary of State. The Republican Primary is scheduled for May 24, 2022.
