In some of the most dramatic testimony from the fourth hearing of the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the U.S. Capitol, Shaye Moss, a Black election worker in Georgia, and her mother Ruby Freeman described how their lives were forever changed in December of 2020 when Trump’s top campaign lawyer Rudy Giuliani claimed they manipulated ballots to rig the election outcome in the state, which was among those he had lost. They faced severe harassment, racism and death threats from Trump supporters and had to be relocated by the FBI for safety. "I don’t want anyone knowing my name. … I don’t want to go anywhere. I second-guess everything that I do," said Moss, who, like her former colleagues, is no longer an election worker in Fulton County. "Do you know how it feels to have the president of the United States to target you?" said Freeman in taped testimony. "The president of the United States is supposed to represent every American — not to target one."
