Trump supporters and allies falsely claimed that Moss and her mother, Ruby Freeman, were involved in changing votes.

Moss takes the stand against Giuliani (Black Enterprise)

Former Georgia election worker Wandrea “Shaye” Moss took the stand on Dec. 12 in the defamation trial against former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who worked as a lawyer for Donald Trump. Moss told jurors that the onslaught of lies brought forth by the 79-year-old conservative and other Donald Trump associates made her fear for her life, The Associated Press reports.

Moss and her mother, Ruby Freeman, became the target of a conspiracy theory that alleged the 2020 presidential election results in the state had been rigged. Trump supporters and allies falsely claimed that Moss and Freeman were involved in “changing votes.” The 39-year-old woman said that the death threats, harassment, and racist messages she has received have stricken her with fear.

“I’m most scared of my son finding me and or my mom hanging in front of our house on a tree having to get news at school that his mom was killed,” she said. “I was afraid for my life. I literally felt like someone going to come and attempt to hang me and there’s nothing that anyone will be able to do about it.”
