As the votes were still being tallied across many U.S. states this week, President Donald Trump and his allies have sounded the alarm regarding potential voter fraud or suppression in the presidential election.
According to Townhall, an investigation by Project Veritas included testimony from a U.S. Postal Service employee who said he observed voter fraud in Michigan.
The whistleblower alleged that postal workers were instructed to backdate ballots that arrived after Election Day.
As it turns out, the presidential race has come down to a handful of critical swing states where Democratic nominee Joe Biden has been continuously competitive — including Georgia, Arizona, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania.
In response, Trump has accused Democrats of cheating to close the gap, and the president’s lawyers have filed suit in various states to stop what they contend are fraudulent counts from continuing.
The anonymous USPS employee in Traverse City told Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe that he received instructions from his supervisor to collect ballots that were to be backdated to Nov. 3 and then sent out through express mail.
Ballots in Michigan are required by law to be returned by 8 p.m. on Election Day in order to be counted.
“Hand stamp them with the previous day’s date”
“We were issued a directive this morning to collect any ballots we find in mailboxes, collection boxes, just outgoing mail in general, separate them at the end of the day so that they could hand stamp them with the previous day’s date,” the whistleblower stated. “Today is November 4th for clarification.”
The postal worker said that he came forward because it seemed “sketchy” and he doesn’t like corruption.
Trump has directly denounced his rival’s campaign for attempting to steal the election through “shenanigans,” asserting that he would “easily win” if officials “count the legal votes.”
O’Keefe posted a video clip of his interview with the whistleblower in a tweet:
