A viral video produced by the fraudulent far-right propaganda outlet Project Veritas and widely promoted by major Republican figures, which claimed to show Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar's reelection campaign illegally collecting ballots in Minnesota, continues to be discredited.

Multiple media reports since the video was published on Sept. 27 have detailed ways in which Project Veritas used untrustworthy sources and deceptively edited clips to smear Omar, who is the frequent target of right-wing attacks.

The Project Veritas video, produced by the organization's head huckster James O'Keefe, was promoted by President Donald Trump on Twitter and purports to show that Omar committed election fraud by hiring people to "harvest ballots" in exchange for money.
