It’s funny how a defamation suit can inspire a little truth-telling.
On Monday, One America News Network, the far-right outlet that routinely trafficked in election fraud conspiracy theories, aired a pre-recorded segment explaining that that there was “no widespread voter fraud” by Georgia election workers during the 2020 presidential contest.
The Daily Beast explains:
The segment notes that an investigation by state officials into unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud made by ex-President Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani turned up nothing. “The results of this investigation indicate that Ruby Freeman and Wandrea ‘Shaye’ Moss did not engage in ballot fraud or criminal misconduct,” a narrator states.
“A legal matter with this network and the two election workers has been resolved to the mutual satisfaction of the parties through a fair and reasonable settlement,” the voiceover adds.
Freeman and her daughter Moss were accused, falsely, of being “crooked Democrats” who introduced fraudulent Joe Biden ballots into Georgia’s 2020 count.
A subsequent investigation cleared them of all wrongdoing.
According to a lawsuit, they were subjected to non-stop harassment, much of which was imbued with explicit racism. Freeman had to move out of her house.
Freeman and Moss have pending lawsuits against Rudy Giuliani, who pushed the false allegations against them, and The Gateway Pundit, a far-right blog that frequently wrote about them in derogatory terms.
