Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez demanded that Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard apologize to her Democrat colleague Ilhan Omar after allegedly disseminating false information about voter fraud in her district.
At the end of September, Gabbard attempted to drum up awareness for a bill she recently introduced with Illinois Republican Rodney Davis that would have prohibited the use of ballot harvesting. Gabbard is of the opinion that this practice has the potential for great abuse.
Gabbard pointed to an undercover video from Project Veritas, a watchdog organization known for exposing political corruption, where it depicted how Omar’s campaign was illegally gathering ballots and filling them out in order to pad her vote count in hopes of being re-elected.
“Project Veritas offers further evidence of the need to ban ballot harvesting,” Gabbard said in a Twitter post in which she deleted. “It’s not a partisan issue.”
AOC was fuming and went on Twitter earlier this week to demand that Gabbard issue an apology to Omar.

“You, along with everyone else who amplified this fraudulent story, owe Rep. Omar a public apology,” Ocasio-Cortez remarked.
Gabbard ended up deleting her tweet making reference to Project Veritas following AOC’s demand for her to apologize. Shen then apologized to Omar on Twitter and asked if she and AOC would back her legislation.
“The issue is not about any of us. It’s about voter harvesting,” Gabbard stated. “Ilhan, I apologize for referencing the PV story as an example without thoroughly vetting it.”
.@AOC @ilhanmn The issue is not about any of us. It's about voter harvesting. Ilhan, I apologize for referencing the PV story as an example without thoroughly vetting it. Now will you support HR8285 to get rid of voter harvesting which undermines our democracy? If not, why not?

Ballot harvesting is legal in a number states and has become a major issue during the 2020 elections, when many people believe there could be huge potential for voter fraud.
The Honolulu Civil Beat gave a brief summary of how vote harvesting works:
Where it is legal, voters are allowed to fill out their mail-in or absentee ballot, seal it in a secure envelope and give it to someone to drop off on their behalf. Those concerned with fraud are worried that those collected ballots could then be altered or disposed of altogether.
As of now, Gabbard’s bill banning ballot harvesting only has four cosponsors, which are all Republicans..
Gabbard has set herself apart by questioning the foreign policy establishment as of late, which has earned her numerous enemies. Although she’s on the Left, Gabbard has not engaged in the unhinged anti-Trump screeching that is typical of the modern-day Left.
Her willingness to buck the status quo every now and then does get her in trouble with the powers that be. For example, she had been subject to Big Tech censorship during the 2020 election cycle because she was viewed as a “Russian asset” by the political establishment.
While not a steadfast ally for America Firsters, Gabbard can be a strategic partner for certain causes.
Marjorie Taylor Greene Plans to Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against President Biden ON DAY ONE
She’s citing Biden family corruption.
Georgia freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is planning on introducing articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden the day after he’s inaugurated.
Greene made the announcement on Wednesday.
On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect @JoeBiden.
75 million Americans are fed up with inaction.
— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@mtgreenee) January 14, 2021
Greene is citing Biden family corruption, accusing Biden of standing by as his own relatives enriched themselves through business deals with foreign oligarchs, using the former Vice President’s family name.
Biden game-planned on messaging to dismiss his son Hunter’s involvement with corrupt Ukrainian oil company Burisma, receiving advice from the State Department while accusing the company’s oligarch owner of criminal activity. It didn’t occur to Biden to address the fact that his own son secured highly lucrative employment with Burisma until the topic became a point of political contention in the 2020 election.
Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, has also been accused of securing lucrative business deals in China under the auspices of the Biden family name. Biden has steadfastly refused to speak in detail about suspicious Biden family business dealings, even though he’s gone so far as to openly brag about securing the termination of a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden and Burisma for laundering profits of the former state-owned enterprise.
Greene is demanding that Biden be held accountable for the de facto licensure of his family name in Ukraine, an international liability that far surpasses anything proven to be real through a lengthy investigation into Donald Trump’s supposed connections of Russia.
The articles of impeachment are doomed from the get-go, with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi assured to protect Biden from allegations of corruption and poor governance. However, the Democratic Party has been unable to resist turning the presidential impeachment process into a wholly partisan, reactionary affair, and may reap the whirlwinds of their decision if Republicans willing to hold the establishment politician accountable gain majorities in the House and the Senate.
