Election Worker Gives Emotional Account of How Trump's Election Lies Ravaged Her Life

Former Georgia election worker Wandrea ArShaye “Shaye” Moss testified before the Jan. 6 committee on Tuesday, detailing her and her family’s experience with violent threats and harassment following unfounded allegations made against her by President Trump, Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, and other Trump campaign allies.

Before the committee Moss discussed the cataclysmic effects the conspiracy theories Trump leveraged against her had on her life. “It has turned my life upside down.” Moss testified, “I don’t want anyone knowing my name […] I just don’t do nothing anymore, I don’t want to go anywhere. I second guess everything that I do. It’s affected my life in a major way, in every way. All because of lies.”

The clip demonstrates how Moss and her mother became public scapegoats for the Trump campaign’s crusade to cast doubt on the 2020 election results. At a Dec. 2020 rally in Georgia, Trump played surveillance footage from State Farm Arena for a crowd of furious supporters. Days before the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, Trump railed against Freeman in a call to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and other Georgia election officials.

Through her written statement, Moss implored the committee to take action to protect election workers and victims of disinformation, stating that: “Because of the lies, I’ve lost who I was. I will never again be able to do the work I felt called to do. My life will never be the same. […] And I’m here to tell my truth to help [make] sure this never happens to anyone else. My loss has got to be for something.”
