Dale Harrison, a Black Lives Matter activist and Soundcloud rapper living in Colorado, posted a video appearing to show him tabulating votes, then flagrantly tearing up and tossing aside a ballot cast for President Donald Trump.
In the video, Harrison is heard saying “So I work at the vote bail outs, which means we get your votes in and we separate them. So, if some of these votes happen to say, like this one,” while holding up what appears to be a ballot clearly marked for President Trump. Harrison proceeds to rip the paper in half.
The video has since been removed from TikTok. It is unclear whether Harrison deleted the video, or if TikTok’s moderators removed it for violating its policies.
Harrison is an amateur rapper user living in Colorado, as evidenced by several signs seen on his public TikTok channel, and the YouTube channel linked to his TikTok account. In several of his public TikTok videos, Harrison is seen celebrating the media’s decision to call the election for Joe Biden.
One video, posted to his Facebook account, appears to show him dancing with excitement after learning President Trump tested positive for COVID-19 in early October.
On his YouTube account are four songs and one music video that appear to feature Harrison, performing as Lil LanDoe, performing original rap tracks.
On Facebook, Harrison claimed the video was comedic in nature, and that he was wearing an “Amazon outfit” for the recording. It is unclear if Harrison works for Amazon in any capacity, and several of his TikTok videos show him sitting in an office environment wearing business casual attire, and not the fluorescent yellow vest worn in the alleged ballot destruction video.
“I did this video in my Amazon outfit cause y’all know I’m always joking,” wrote Harrison. “And it’s getting crazyyyy views!”
National File contacted Amazon to determine whether Harrison worked for them in Colorado and did not receive an immediate reply. Additional, National File contacted several officials working for the Colorado Board of Elections for comment on whether this individual had access to ballots and did not receive an immediate reply.
