Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D., Hawaii) cited an investigation by Project Veritas into the campaign of Representative Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) in a call to outlaw ballot harvesting.

Gabbard embarked on a long-shot campaign for president earlier this year, and dropped out of the primaries in March after winning just two delegates. On September 18 Gabbard introduced legislation to ban ballot harvesting, in which third parties are authorized to gather ballots from voters to submit in an election.

“Banning ballot harvesting is not a partisan issue. It’s been used and abused in states like North Carolina and California and is ripe for fraud,” Gabbard wrote on Twitter at the time.

Following Gabbard’s proposal, conservative activist group Project Veritas released an investigation into Omar’s campaign. The group’s founder, James O’Keefe, filmed several undercover videos that purport to show campaign workers engaging in electoral fraud. The alleged scheme involves a cash-for-ballots operation in which workers illegally gather and fill out absentee ballots from mostly elderly Somali immigrants.

The investigation has not been independently confirmed, however Gabbard cited the undercover videos in support of her legislation.
