Turning Point USA founder and executive director, Charlie Kirk, conducted an interview with ballot integrity group True the Vote’s Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Philips last week to discuss the organization’s extremely high-tech probe into an “organized crime” ballot trafficking operation they say most definitely tipped the election to Joe Biden.
Philips began by noting that the acts of stuffing ballot boxes in various parts of the country — which occurred mostly in swing states — mimicked a pattern with every operation featuring “a set of collectors, a collection point or stash house for all the ballots, the bundling of those ballots, and then the casting of those ballots [in the drop boxes] by, what we were calling, ‘mules.’”
“And as we began putting the pieces and parts together, it really did dawn on us: ‘Well, this sounds like what’s happening in Atlanta or in San Luis, Arizona’… This was a conspiracy, this was organized crime,” he explained.
At one point in the interview, Engelbrecht talked about the “fateful moment” when she turned to Philips and asked, “How do we take down a cartel?”
“That’s when we began to use the terms like stash houses, and drop points, and mules, and trafficking, and voter abuse because that’s what we’re looking at,” she said.
True the Vote spent $2 million to buy publicly available cell phone data that can pinpoint an individual’s location to within a few inches. They then narrowed their search to targets that began visiting drop boxes and NGO offices during the early voting weeks leading up to November 3rd, activity that was contrary to their prior “pattern of life.” In Georgia, the threshold was at least two dozen trips to drop boxes and five visits to a non-profit.
The organization used open records requests to obtain as much surveillance video of dropboxes as they could get, which went a long way in helping them determine that indeed, ballot trafficking and dropbox-stuffing operations occurred.
Also, they examined chain of custody documents to see what an average day looked like at any given dropbox location. According to the records, they found that normal ballot drop-off rates were punctuated by "spokes" in ballot receipts, which helped the researchers identify specific dates and times to examine the nearly 4 million minutes' worth of video footage obtained.
BREAKING! GEORGIA!? Video appears to show illegal ballot harvester in Gwinnett County on Oct 12, 2020! He fans out ballots, takes a photo, & places them in the dropbox. It’s been reported that illegal ballot harvesters were paid $10 per ballot, & had to show proof. @RealAmVoice pic.twitter.com/dEejRiSrX7

“This is how money laundering works,” Philips said. “This is not just a one-off thing, this is not some Democrat activist that really wanted Trump gone and might have had a couple friends do this. This was a machine.”
Kirk asked which state saw the most trafficking activity.
“Pennsylvania,” Philips responded. “The worst in every way: 1,155 people met our criteria… in Philadelphia.”
“What’s even more insane is watching the data, watching the pings come across the bridge in New Jersey and into Philly,” Englebrecht noted further, strongly suggesting that the traffickers crossed state lines in order to allegedly commit ballot fraud -- a massive RICO felony.
In addition to Philadelphia, both researchers noted that two mules in Arizona made their way to Georgia for the runoff elections, both of which went to Democratic candidates. And a bartender in South Carolina came in to “help out” in Atlanta, Philips said.
What's worse, Philips charged, the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSA) knew about the systematic ballot stuffing and did nothing.
“We learned that there were off-duty law enforcement officers, paid for by the Republican Party, that reported all of this. And [the NRSA] just covered it up,” Philips said.
