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.
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.
