Donor Sues Pro-Trump Group for Lack of Evidence of Fraud
A pro-Trump group that has pledged to uncover evidence of alleged fraud by the Democrats in the US presidential election has been charged by one of its backers.
The North Carolina man, who donated $ 2.5 million, is angry that nothing of the promise has been kept.
Fred Eshelman, a manager of an investment fund, wants his money back and says he asked “regularly and repeatedly” about the progress of the project.
His requests kept getting “vague responses, platitudes, and hollow promises,” said Eshelman, who has filed suit in a federal court in Houston, Texas.
The group, called True, the Vote, had pledged “to investigate, detect and litigate suspected illegal voting and fraud in the 2020 elections.”
In the week after the election, the group filed four lawsuits. Those cases were withdrawn last week.
“While we stand by voters’ testimony, hurdles to advocating our cause, coupled with time constraints, make it necessary for us to take a different path,” the group stated on its website.
