Publicist Says Her ‘Association’ With Kanye West Started After She Pressured Election Worker

Weeks after the 2020 election, a Chicago publicist who was said to work for hip-hop artist Kanye West traveled to the suburban home of Ruby Freeman, a Fulton County, Georgia, election worker who was “frightened” by death threats after being falsely accused by Donald Trump of manipulating votes.

The publicist who offered “to help” Freeman, Trevian Kutti, didn’t say she worked for West, a longtime billionaire friend of Trump’s. She said she was sent by a “high-profile individual,” whom she didn’t identify, to give Freeman an urgent message: confess to Trump’s voter-fraud allegations, or people would come to her home in 48 hours, and she’d go to jail. A number of media reports have cited Kutti’s association with West since 2018, but now she’s claiming she was not “associated” with the rap star at the time she visited Freeman, a representative for West said.

Ruby Freeman told Reuters that Kutti tried to implicate her in election fraud and warned her that she could be arrested. Kutti also said the election worker faced unspecified “danger,” according to a police report. She sought to pressure Freeman into confessing in exchange for help, according to Freeman, who said she ended the conversation.

Reuters has detailed a campaign of harassment and intimidation against Freeman and her daughter, Wandrea “Shaye” Moss, also a Fulton County election worker. The women received hundreds of threats and harassing messages after lawyers for Trump claimed in December 2020 that the women had pulled “suitcases” of fraudulent ballots from under a table on election night and fed them into vote tabulators.

Even after those claims had been debunked, Trump and his allies continued to falsely accuse the women of election fraud, sparking months of threats that have disrupted their lives. Some angry Trump supporters have even visited Freeman’s home, which scared the 62-year-old temporary election worker so much, she went into hiding.
