(James O’Keefe | O’Keefe Media Group) – Residents across the country who have previously given contributions to Democrat fundraising arm ActBlue appear to unknowingly be a part of a national money laundering scheme to funnel millions of dollars into political campaigns.
This was a tip that came from Peter Bernegger of Election Watch, a group guided toward “protecting the integrity of elections.”
The hypothesis has been given credence now that an O’Keefe Media Group investigation not only verified the data on state and federal election sites but also published in-person corroborating interviews with these donors.
Through publicly available records, it was discovered that several Maryland voters had excessive amounts of donations made in their names – not just once, not just twice, but some of them over 10,000 times since 2019.
The O’Keefe Media Group then conducted in person interviews with some of these Maryland voters to inquire as to what knowledge, if any, these Maryland residents had of the scheme.
Cindy Nowe of Annapolis made 1009 unique contributions from 2019-2022 to ActBlue totaling over $18,000 according to federal and state elections data.
She was dismayed by this figure when interviewed by James O’Keefe. Nowe stated that she donates to ActBlue “once in a while,” but she laughed off the $18K figure saying “I doubt that…No I don’t think so.” She added “I wish I could have donated $18,000.”
Another Maryland resident, Garland Riggs, denied that so many contributions could have come from her family with her husband saying “no, not us.” According to publicly available records Riggs contributed more $230,000 through over 31,000 individual donations.
Both in Maryland and nationally, Warnock for Georgia, Amy for America, Progressive Turnout and many more Democratic PACs seem to be the common recipients of these contributions from what Bernegger calls “smurfs,” in accordance with its label as a term for those involved in the structure of money laundering.
James O’Keefe has implored those following the story “who are fearless, with integrity, and willing to find out the truth” to join him and uncover more of these victims and who is at the top of what could be the biggest financial fraud scheme in the history of the United States.
