During his speech before the congressional investigative commission, Bowers recalled how several of the rioters who gathered outside his family home for several weekends “had trucks with giant screens with videos of me, accusing me of being a pedophile, a pervert and of being a corrupt politician. These slanders have cost the Republican politician several friendshipswho publicly acknowledged that “it is painful to see how friends who have been so helpful have turned against me with so much rancor.”

The situation of insecurity and stress for the Bowers family reached its peak one Sunday when, returning from church, they found that among the protesters gathered in front of their house, there was an armed man who seemed to be associated with the militant group far-right ‘Three Percenters’. “He had three bars on his chest, he was carrying a gun and he was threatening my neighbor,” Bowers said.

Threats of death

Wandrea “Shaye” Mossa former Georgia poll worker, gave an account under oath of “hateful” and “racist” threats she received through Facebook after Trump and Giuliani alleged that she and her mother were seen on video passing a USB that may have contributed to the alleged election theft of Joe Biden. Later, it was possible to verify what Moss herself assured during her testimony, that the USB was nothing more than a ginger candy.

“I have received many threats wishing me death. Telling me I’m going to end up in jail with my mom and saying things like ‘be glad it’s 2020 and not 1920,'” Moss summed up. The committee then played Mother Moss’s taped testimony, Ruby Freemanalso known by her business alter ego, ‘Lady Ruby’.

“I lost my sense of security because a group of people starting with the 45th president and his ally, Rudy Giuliani, decided to scapegoat my daughter Shaye and me to push their own lies about how the presidential election was stolen,” Freeman started. The former election watcher went on to recount how a call from the FBI in late 2020 changed her life forever.

“I can’t believe this person (Trump) has caused me and my family so much harm.. That I had to leave my house, go into hiding.” The FBI informed Moss’s mother that it was best that she “disappear for a while, at least until after the inauguration” to prevent extremists who had been threatening her since November. threaten their physical integrity.

“There’s nowhere I feel safe anymore. Nowhere. You can’t imagine what it feels like when the president of the United States (USA) points a finger at you. The US president is supposed to represent all Americans, not attack them. But he attacked me, ‘Lady Ruby,’ a small business owner, mother, a proud American citizen, who volunteered to help Fulton County run an election in the midst of a pandemic.”

Unfortunately, Moss and Freeman case threatens to become commonplaceas revealed by a recent study by Reuters in which more than 850 threats and hostile messages to US election officials and workers are collected.

In most cases, Trump supporters echoed the former president’s unfounded claims about alleged electoral fraud that cost him his exit from the White House. According to several legal experts consulted by ReutersAt least a hundred of those threats could be considered criminal offenses in federal courts.
