In Dinesh D’Souza’s ridiculous, widely defamed and discredited pseudo-documentary 2,000 Muleshe accuses many American voters of acting as “mules” and trafficking fake ballots to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.
These so-called couriers were featured prominently in the film, using surveillance footage of them putting ballots in drop-boxes and presumably catching their villains. D’Souza’s ominous narration in the film declares: These are fraudulent votes. ”
The only problem, of course, was that it was all false, and one voter was spotted as Mule. Mark Andrews filed a lawsuit against D’Souza on Wednesday, accusing D’Souza and his collaborators in a May 2022 documentary of “junk pseudoscience combined with excerpted surveillance videos of innocent voters. ” he claimed to have falsely accused him of voter fraud.
2,000 Mules His federal complaint showed Andrews’ face blurred as he dropped five ballots into a Georgia drop box in 2020. “Indeed, Mr. Andrews’ video shows him legally dropping a ballot for himself and his family, a method of voting expressly authorized by Georgia law,” it said. it says.
A state investigation by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation found Andrews to have committed no wrongdoing and dismissed the complaint filed against him in May as a result of the documentary.
“Defendants have always known that the portrayal of Mr Andrews was a lie. 2,000 Mules‘ explains the lawsuit. “But they have continued to sell these lies in order to enrich themselves. At the time this lawsuit was filed, the defendant’s social media accounts and website were still criminalizing Mr. Andrews.” promotes the film by using it as an example of the “Mule” of ”
Later in the 123-page complaint, it is explained: Andrews as an exemplary “mule”.
Co-defendants in the lawsuit are named Greg Phillips and Katherine Engelbrecht, partners of D’Souza and of “True the Vote,” a controversial conservative vote-monitoring organization. In September, the group was sued by Konnech, an election logistics software company, for accusing Phillips and Engelbrecht of stealing data and conducting a xenophobic “smear campaign” against the chief executive.
“The organization believes that True the Vote’s allegations in this lawsuit will be found without merit,” a True the Vote spokesperson said. Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Andrews’ lawsuit seeks undetermined sums, alleging defamation, threats, and invasion of privacy. “As a black man who grew up in the American South before the Voting Rights Act was enacted, Mr. Andrews deeply valued his right to vote and was always proud to vote for his family.”
“Now the conspiracy of defendants to defame and intimidate Mr Andrews will never allow him to vote without looking over his shoulder again.”
