Georgia Election Commissioners Sue Rudy Giuliani, OAN, Over Electoral Fraud Complaints

ATLANTA ( Associated Press) – On Thursday, two Georgia electoral system workers filed a lawsuit accusing right-wing cable news channel and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani of defaming them, falsely claiming that they participated in ballot fraud during the 2020 elections.

It was the second defamation lawsuit by Fulton County electoral officials Ruby Freeman and Wandrea “Shay” Moss this month in connection with rebutted claims that they brought suitcases of illegal ballots and other electoral fraud to try to change the outcome of the presidential election. in Georgia. The couple, a mother and daughter, filed a lawsuit against the conservative website The Gateway Pundit on December 2.

The lawsuit filed Thursday said One America News Network continued to accuse Freeman and Moss of misconduct even after Georgia’s election officials denied the allegations against them. Giuliani, a lawyer for former President Donald Trump, made frequent online appearances and, along with the OAN, “continued to publish and reinforce lies,” according to a lawsuit filed in a federal court in Washington.

The email to One America News Network and the family member who created it was not immediately returned. Messages to the phone number and email addresses associated with Giuliani also did not return immediately.

Angered by his minor defeat in a traditionally republican state, former President Donald Trump has focused his attention on Georgia, making unsubstantiated claims that widespread fraud led to Joe Biden’s victory in the state.

During a telephone conversation with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on January 2, Trump demanded that a Republican official “find” votes for him and called Freeman by name, calling her a “vote-rigger, professional fraudster and fraudster.”

Freeman worked as a temporary election clerk during the 2020 elections, checking signatures on absentee ballots and preparing them for counting and processing. Moss has worked in the Fulton County election department since 2012 and oversaw the absentee ballot operation during last year’s election.

The lawsuit states that Freeman and Moss “have been subjected to” an immediate onslaught of violent and racist threats and harassment “as a result of false accusations against them and” are afraid to live a normal life. ” He is seeking penalties as well as a court order requiring defendants to remove false statements about Freeman and Mose from their websites and other media channels.
