Former President Trump and his top ally, Rudy Giuliani, spread false allegations about election workers counting fake ballots during the 2020 election.
Two of those election workers targeted, Ms. Shaye Moss and her mother Ms. Ruby Freeman, served their country as election workers in Fulton County Georgia before Trump's accusations incited his supporters to start harassing and threatening the family.
During her testimony in front of the January 6th Committee, Ms. Moss testified that she had experienced hate mail and threats to her lift since the accusations were made. Trump supporters even invaded her grandmother’s house to execute an illegal “citizen’s arrest", sending the family into hiding.
Though the allegations have been debunked, election workers continue to face the consequences of having the former president of the United States accuse them of a serious felony.
“There is nowhere I feel safe. Nowhere,” Ms. Freeman said. “Do you know how it feels to have the president of the United States target you?”
