Jesse Morgan, a truck driver, has put himself in the center of post-election drama by claiming that he drove a truck full of suspicious mail-in-ballots from New York to Pennsylvania before Election Day.
“I know I saw ballots with return addresses filled out,” Morgan, who claims to work for a Postal Service contractor alleges. “Thousands of them, thousands.”
Morgan made these claims at a voter fraud event held by the right-wing Thomas More Center. Morgan’s statements made him the latest Trumpist viral star.
It did not take long for Trump to jump in and amplify Morgan’s claims. Trump and his allies have tried to push baseless claims that close to 300,000 bogus mail-in-ballots were used in Pennsylvania to give Biden the victory in the state.
Morgan provided no evidence of his claim. This isn’t Morgan’s only time in the spotlight, besides allegedly witnessing voter fraud Morgan claims that his family has been stalked cross-country by ghosts.
Before Morgan became a viral Trump star he was an amateur ghost hunter.
In 2016, he did a video titled “Shadow person” that he claimed was living in his basement and constantly making strange noises. “I will not raise my daughters in a place that is haunted,” Morgan declared in the video.
Despite saying that he heard noises, Morgan can be seen descending the stairs into his basement. As he reached the bottom he says he saw a “shadow person,” Which looked exactly like a human person wearing a black morph suit peeking at him from the bottom of the stairs. Suddenly Morgan’s camera tilts and the ghost “disappears.”
In a second video, Morgan alleges that he moved out of that house because of the ghost and moved into a home in York, Pennsylvania that he claims is “infested” with ghosts. In a shaky video, Morgan shares his concerns about his paranormal infestation while a figurine suspiciously moves behind him and a photo flies off a shelf.
Morgan has three brothers, who also claim to have been haunted. He and his brothers made a documentary about their encounters with the shadow men.
Most of the documentary was made up of a blurry video taken by Jesse Morgan that he called “Evidence” of the hauntings. At the end of the documentary Morgan offers advice to anyone battling shadow spirits.
“It lives off your emotion, it lives off of stress, it lives off of dysfunction,” Morgan said. “So don’t be scared, don’t be afraid. As crazy and stupid as it may sound, walk around your house and say ‘In the name of Jesus Christ, I command you to leave.’ It’s helped me out 1,000 times, to tell you the truth.”
On Tuesday during his voter fraud claims Morgan stated that he had witnessed a series of “weird incidents” including an interaction with a rude postal worker on a truck drive from Bethpage, New York to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He said those incidents convinced him that he had been tricked into some sort of voter fraud scheme and that he was carrying bogus ballots.
Morgan says that on that particular day of work he could not find his preferred trailer and that it had been stolen or hidden that day for nefarious purposes.
“I liked that trailer,” Morgan said. “It was a nice trailer.”
According to Pennsylvania court records, Morgan has been arrested multiple times. He has faced several charges including forgery, theft, and receiving stolen property. He served more than six months in prison.
Morgan has also admitted to having drug problems.
