Georgia Poll Workers Sue Rudy Giuliani, One America News for Defamation

HeadlineDec 27, 2021

In Georgia, two former election workers have filed a defamation lawsuit against Rudy Giuliani and the far-right One America News Network after they were falsely accused of manipulating votes in the 2020 election. The lawsuit states Fulton County poll workers Ruby Freeman and her daughter — who are both African American — received death threats after a “campaign of malicious lies designed to accuse them of interfering with a fair and impartial election, which is precisely what each of them swore an oath to protect.”
