CNN’s Van Jones gives credit to ‘Native Votes’ effort that allegedly bribed voters to elect Biden
CNN’s Van Jones gave credit to the Democrats who organized the “Native Votes” effort that allegedly bribed voters with gift cards, electronics, and even resort stays to help elect Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election. The incentives reportedly took place in Arizona, Nevada, and a number of other states.
For instance, in Wisconsin, the “Native Votes” effort publicly posted their support for Joe Biden on their social media accounts. Donations were processed through and supported the Democrat fundraising operation Act Blue.
Among the prizes given away to potential voters were swag bags and $50 Gift Cards in exchange for proof that they had voted.
The Native Organizers Alliance was also involved in the effort and they work directly with ActBlue as well. When you click to donate on their website, you are redirected to an ActBlue fundraising page. This group also allegedly receives financial support from the Alliance for a Just Society.
“You see those little blue dots in Arizona? Those are Native American community played a tremendous role…” Van Jones said on CNN. Jones named Native Vote, Native Organizers Alliance, and other organizations that were providing gifts for votes. He credited them with Biden’s victory.
Vote Native is an initiative of the National Congress of American Indians.
According to its website, the NCAI is partnering with the Open Society Foundation, which was founded by George Soros. They are also aligning with the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and the Northwest Area Foundation. The group lists the Department of Agriculture, Department of Defense, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of the Interior, Department of Justice, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Small Business Administration as government partners.
Cash was also handed out to voters by CORAZÓN Arizona, which is a project of Neighborhood Ministries, Inc a 501(c)3 Non-Profit. Others were given $50 Visa gift cards from the United National Indian Tribal Youth, Inc.
In Nevada, a lawsuit filed by the Trump campaign on behalf of Nevada electors states that “at least one of the social media videos in which NNVP promoted the voting drives and the incentives depicted NNVP personnel wearing a ‘Biden-Harris’ face covering and standing in front of a van bearing a ‘Biden-Harris’ logo and openly encouraged people to vote for Joseph Biden.”
The lawsuit also states that “offering something of value to a voter in exchange for his/her vote is a violation of Federal and Nevada law. All such votes cast in exchange for the above-described incentives are, therefore, illegal and improper votes. The evidence will show that there were no less than 500 of these illegal and improper votes.”
“These illegal or improper votes cast and counted are in an amount sufficient to raise reasonable doubt as to the outcome of the Election,” the lawsuit asserts.
“The fact that the voting drives were officially promoted by NNVP organizing personnel displaying ‘Biden-Harris’ promotional material and logos reflects that value was being offered to voters under these circumstances in an effort to manipulate or alter the outcome of the Election,” the lawsuit reads.
The social media posts that detailed the gift cards being given away for votes by the Nevada Native Vote Project have since been taken down.
The Democratic Party was allegedly hosting and paying for these Native American events.
There is a video showing voters being given items in polling places. The same woman offering giveaways in that video was also featured in a Biden mask at a Biden bus, on the official social media page for the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony on October 20.
In another video for the “Get Out the Vote with the Biden” campaign, she offered free burgers and swag, that included cookies featuring Biden stickers. She was also in a video that discussed the Native Vote Project outside of a polling location, once again holding up the gift cards.
The Nevada Native Vote Project was not subtle in their promotion on social media either. On Facebook, they promoted voting incentives: “ATTENTION WALKER RIVER PAIUTES Election Day Event, Tuesday, Nov 3rd from 7:00am to 7:00 pm. Vote in person, register to vote or drop off your ballot! Gas cards are available for those picking up voters! Get yourself a free #NativesVote t-shirt, a shaved ice from Ping Pow Poom, and some delicious BBQ food from Susie’s BBQ. CASH & PRIZE DRAWINGS will be held all day for those who show up and vote. #NativesVote #NativeVote #NVNativeVote.” There were other promotional posts as well.
The organization also gave away laptops, expensive speakers, iPads, and other electronics, all of which they referred to as “incentives.”
