Since helping produce the hit documentary "2000 Mules" about exposing cracks and corruption in the mail-in ballot system during the 2020 election, True the Vote's Gregg Phillips has been the target of political prosecution and lawfare, which landed him in jail for refusing to give up his sources in his investigations.
On a recent episode of "1819 News: The Podcast," Phillips discussed how he's continuing to fight for election integrity and how inaccurate voter rolls could impact 2024.
"Most of our lives these days is really centered around these lawsuits. And while we have the wherewithal to fight back, we always need more help," Phillips told podcast host and 1819 News CEO Bryan Dawson. "We're spending a quarter million dollars a month on legal fees. An awful lot of money to spend on legal fees but of course, what they're trying to do is they're trying to ensure that we, nor those old folks in Michigan or the folks out in Nevada or anywhere else, if you have the audacity to stand up and fight, they're going to do everything they can to be sure that they ruin you financially, potentially put you in jail, all the other things that for us, you, me, that we fight about, the death threats and other things that we all sort of live with."
Phillips said he's currently waiting on a court ruling from a judge in Georgia in a case involving vote rolls.
"It's an important case because if the State's not going to clean the voter roll, and the citizens are not allowed to follow the law that allows them to challenge, who's going to clean the voter roll? The answer is nobody."
Phillips said that since roughly 11% of Americans move each year, voter rolls should be cleaned up at least once a quarter.
"Based on our analysis, we believe there are right now 443,000 ineligible voters in Georgia or people that are on the voter rolls in Georgia that are ineligible to vote in their county based on the fact that they've moved. Four-hundred forty-three thousand. So what I'm telling you and your voters is this: those rolls won't be clean again until 2025. We already know that we're walking into a trainwreck."
Phillips said his team knows more and is "better prepared" to fight this issue than ever before and that if they lose the case in Georgia, they will immediately appeal.
"Having that number of excess ballots out there in the world is not OK. The bad news is all of the states are like this," Phillips said. "... We've done all the battleground states, we just finished Nevada. We're doing all of them, and they're all sort of equally problematic. We're literally talking about millions of people still on the voter rolls that don't live there anymore."
He concluded, "The best news I can tell you is that we are now … eyes on all these problems. We have every single one of them. We've made the appropriate people aware."
