A pro-Trump group that promised to challenge the results of the November 3 American elections and expose fraud was sued by a North Carolina financial manager who donated $ 2.5 million to the cause, but he says he didn’t see the promises that were made to him to be kept.
Fred Eshelman, founder of Eshelman Ventures LLC, wants his money back, saying he “regularly and repeatedly” asked for updates on the project, but his “requests were answered with vague responses, platitudes and empty promises”, according to the open process last Wednesday in Houston federal court.
Houston-based True the Vote Inc. has pledged a multi-faceted plan to “investigate, prosecute and expose suspected illegal voting and fraud in the 2020 general election,” according to the lawsuit.
In the weeks after the election, True the Vote filed four lawsuits, but withdrew all of them last week. “Although we support voter testimony, barriers to advancing our arguments, along with time constraints, made it necessary for us to look for a different path,” the group announced on its website on 17 November.
Despite numerous allegations of electoral fraud and irregularities coming from President Donald Trump and his supporters, no evidence emerged from widespread problems that would have changed the results of the election won by Joe Biden, who won 306 votes at the Electoral College.

True the Vote called on its initiative to reverse the results of the “Validate the vote” election. The plan included filing lawsuits in seven key states, collecting complaints from whistleblowers, strengthening Republican legislative support in major states and conducting “modeling sophisticated data and statistical analysis to identify potential illegal or fraudulent voting, ”according to Eshelman’s lawsuit.
The financial manager said he agreed to support the plan and transferred $ 2 million to the group on November 5 and $ 500,000 a week after the group’s president told him that more money might be needed to achieve his goals, from according to the process.

When True the Vote did not provide any reports on its progress and with results certification deadlines in the states approaching, Eshelman said it was obvious that the group would not be able to execute the plan he agreed to support. So, he asked for his money back.
True the Vote offered him $ 1 million if he dropped any lawsuits, he said in the lawsuit.
Eshelman is the former president of Pharmaceutical Product Development and founder of Furiex Pharmaceuticals.
He recently donated $ 100 million to his alma mater’s pharmacy school, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
True the Vote did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Bloomberg.
