Catherine Engelbrecht, founder of True the Vote, was arrested in Houston for contempt of court, along with Gregg Phillips, another leader of the organization that is fighting election fraud.
Engelbrecht and Phillips appeared in Jacksonville in June for the playing of the movie 2000 Mules, a documentary by Dinesh D-Souza.
The two are in federal court in a lawsuit accusing them of defamation and computer crime. They were ordered by the judge to disclose the name of a source and refused to do so, leading to the contempt charge.
The suit was filed by Konnech, a Michigan-based company that provides poll worker management software for elections. The company’s CEO, Eugene Yu, filed the suit, but subsequently was arrested in Los Angeles and charged with storing government data in China.
Phillips and Engelbrecht claim that Yu was an agent of the Communist Party in China and that China used his data to influence the 2020 election.
They claim a confidential informant for the FBI gave them some of the information they used but refused to disclose his name.
The most detailed account of the complex case has been published by votebeat.org.
True the Vote’s stated mission is to train citizens to protect election integrity at the polls, and to help protect all voters’ rights.
