Trump's donor wants to take back $ 2.5 million because election fraud has not been proven
Multimillionaire Fred Eshelman has filed a lawsuit to recover the unspent $ 2.5 million he donated to search for presidential election fraud.
“Defendant had developed a multi-pronged plan (referred to as its Validate the Vote 2020 initiative) to investigate, litigate, and expose suspected illegal balloting and fraud in the 2020 general election. As part of its Validate the Vote 2020 plan, Defendant intended to: (1) solicit whistleblower testimonies from those impacted or involved in election fraud; (2) build public momentum through broad publicity; (3) galvanize Republican legislative support in key states; (4) aggregate and analyze data to identify patterns of election subversion; and (5) file lawsuits in federal court with capacity to be heard by the Supreme Court of the United States,” the lawsuit says.
The Washington Post reports that a Texas-based group True the Vote pledged to find evidence of massive fraud, but did not keep the promise, and now does not want to return the money of the defrauded donors.
"There was already noise around cities like Detroit, Milwaukee, Atlanta and Philadelphia." He added: "I wanted to determine if this was legit. Can we find a real smoking gun?"
To Eshelman's first claim for a refund, True the Vote responded with a willingness to refund $ 1 million, then the plaintiff sued for all the money back.
Representatives of the organization claim that the donations did not have special conditions, so they are not going to return anything.
