Project Veritas launched part two of the ballot harvesting investigation, revealing cash exchanged for a general election absentee ballot by an Omar-connected ballot harvester.
James O’Keefe published a viral video exposing a ballot harvester who bought a registration form for an absentee ballot from a voter with $200 of "pocket money." The ballot harvester then expected to collect his ballot when the voter receives it.
"Okay, when I fill it out, I will bring it to you," the voter stated on camera.
Another tape showed a ballot harvester admitting to an $800 payment for his collected ballot.
"That is illegal? Isn't it?" insider and chairman of the Somali Watchdog group Omar Jamal questioned.
"We don't care illegal," Osman Ali Dahquane responded, acknowledging the deposit. "I was given money so I could vote." He also admitted to paying Al-Shabaab, a terrorist, jihadist fundamentalist group based in East Africa that pledged allegiance in 2012 to the militant Islamist organization Al-Qaeda.
"I still have to pay Al-Shabaab to leave me alone," the ballot harvester said. "Al-Shabaab is demanding $1,000 from me."
O'Keefe commented in an official report: “Osman Ali Dahquane has a clear, blatant disregard for American’s political process. He has no fear of his illegal actions—so much so that he casually mentions having to pay off Al-Shabaab, a.k.a. Al-Qaeda, to open a business back home in Mogadishu.”
Dahaquane was recorded by a Project Veritas undercover journalist complaining about his business-related hassles.
“I sent it from my account. I sent Mogadishu $2,000 last night. Here is the receipt,” Dahaquane said. “I’m requesting a license to be issued at the Ministry of Interior. It’s very expensive. It cost me $2,000,” he continued. “Still, I still have to pay Al-Shabaab to leave me alone--Al-Shabaab, they are demanding $1,000.”
Project Veritas previously unearthed on Sunday how mass voter fraud occurs in Minneapolis, aiding progressive "Squad" member Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar through a pay-to-vote scheme.
Now in the follow-up explosive exposé, a Minnesota-based source told Project Veritas that the mastermind behind the rampant voter fraud is Omar herself and her extensive political machine.
A former unnamed co-worker of Omar was filmed pointing a finger at her previous associate: "She's the one who came up with all this," she spoke of the congresswoman and the practice.
"So the people that work for Ilhan are actually counting the ballots, counting the vote?" an unidentified journalist asked about the vertical integration.
The former colleague also cited Omar's campaign staffers for managing the precinct's activity. Project Veritas was informed of Omar's top financier, Basim Sabri, who allegedly pulls the strings behind-the-scenes to defund Israel.
"The reason she is fighting for Palestinians is because of this guy," a source stated. "So it is all about money and power, and they want her to defund Israel money."
Ali Isse Gainey, a senior Omar staffer, is at the center of the vote-buying scheme, implicated among operatives for paying precinct managers and election judges.
If a voter does not have an absentee ballot, the ballot harvesters vote for the individual in the polling booth under the guise of acting "translators," Project Veritas reported.
"They walk with you to the booth and then they vote. Oh, vote this guy, vote this guy, vote this guy. Vote, even if you speak English," the action is explained.
A Minneapolis ballot harvester was recorded with a hidden camera describing the deceit. “They help us at the voting booth. They allow them to help us. They go inside with us and help us, and they actually do that inside there."
Voting for others is illegal under federal law, punishable up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
"If this doesn't prompt United States Attorney General Bill Barr to get involved, I'm not sure what will," O'Keefe declared ahead of the video's premiere. "They said it wasn't enough. They said that you couldn't necessarily see everything. This time we have the harvesters on tape, explaining how they're paid and how it works. You can actually see the smoking gun."
