Minnesota Democratic candidate alleges outright vote buying by Minnesota Democrats: ‘worse than Somalia’

‘The truth will come out’

By: David Steinberg, Blaze, October 17, 2020:

A few thousand votes in swing-state Minnesota may decide November’s presidential election. In this crucial swing state, one Democratic candidate came forward in July, in a largely unnoticed and untranslated video, to allege that the state’s DFL machine was buying votes in Minneapolis’ Somali-American community.

In recent years, multiple Somali-Americans living in Minneapolis-St. Paul have come forward to describe vote-buying, ballot-harvesting, and intimidation operations of historic scope in the Democratic Party-controlled area. Some have brought evidence to state and federal law enforcement, though little action has been taken. These whistleblowers explicitly name Rep. Ilhan Omar, her campaign director Ali Isse, and other Democratic Party members as being involved.i

This year, local political activist and Democratic Party member Saciido Shaie ran for the Minneapolis City Council seat in Ward 6. She has a long political resume. Shaie has been appointed to several state boards by Minnesota’s governor and has also served as the Minneapolis DFL (Democratic Party) fundraising director.

On July 6, Saciido Shaie released a 15-minute video of herself speaking in Somali. She announced that she was not suspending her campaign — but she would no longer be campaigning door-to-door.

She spoke about how upset she was by how many voters she encountered who expected her to pay $200 for a vote.

She was angry that local Democrats had taken advantage of so many elderly Somali-American refugees, who, she said, sincerely do not know that vote-buying is a serious federal crime in the United States.

Shaie also specifically described two incidents she had witnessed.

She added that anyone who thinks she is a “snitch” needs to understand that law enforcement and others “already know.” That everyone involved could eventually get turned in by friends and family, presumably if law enforcement finally shows up with evidence and leverage. Shaie also stated that these “terrible things” simply need to stop, because they will destroy the Somali-American community and their children’s hopes for a future in America.

As of this article’s publication, Saciido Shaie’s July 6 video is still live on her campaign page. The full video can be viewed below (relevant portion begins at the 5-minute mark) and is followed by an English translation of her video, provided to us by a native Somali-language speaker and verified by a second independent translator. Please watch the video as well — Shaie’s emotion and demeanor show her to be an American patriot.

Shaie did not respond to a request for additional comment on this story.
