On Wednesday Georgia election operatives Ruby Freeman and her daughter Wandrea “Shaye” Moss sued The Gateway Pundit, Jim Hoft and Joe Hoft for allegedly conducting a “campaign of lies” against the two women that led to online and in-person harassment against the two women.
We learned this news earlier today from The New York Times, Washington Post, NBC News, Yahoo, Reuters and several others who were tipped off on the news before it went public.
The organization behind the lawsuit is called Protect Democracy, a large far-left political organization.
This was taken from their announcement.
Truth is the foundation of a healthy democracy. Disinformation threatens that foundation, especially when it targets election officials.
Two women who served as election workers in Fulton County, Georgia during the 2020 election today filed a landmark defamation lawsuit against The Gateway Pundit, a website based in St. Louis which the complaint calls “among the leading purveyors of false information in the United States.” The lawsuit, filed in circuit court in St. Louis, charges The Gateway Pundit, along with its founding editor Jim Hoft and contributor Joe Hoft, with knowingly fabricating and disseminating blatantly false stories about the election night conduct of Ruby Freeman and her daughter, Shaye Moss. Protect Democracy, through its Law for Truth project, represents Ms. Freeman and Ms. Moss, in partnership with the law firms DuBose Miller LLC, Dowd Bennett LLP, and Kastorf Law, LLC and the Yale Law School’s Media Freedom and Information Access Clinic.
The two women and their far-left funders targeted The Gateway Pundit after we were the first to identify the women in the late night ballot counting at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta Georgia on November 3rd and the morning of the November 4th.
The Gateway Pundit was also first to report that Ruby Freeman was caught on video shoving stacks of ballots through the voting machines numerous times late at night after all of the election observers were sent home.
The anti-Trump officials in Georgia insisted that this was normal procedure in the state of Georgia. We disagree.
So today we were sued by Ruby, Shae and the Protect Democracy leftist group.
