Tim Ballard, former DHS agent, founder of Operation Underground Railroad (OUR) Rescue, and hero on whom the hit film Sound of Freedom is based, released a statement on Wednesday responding to recent allegations leveled against him after he had announced he was likely going to run for Senate in Utah.  Reading from a press release from his nonprofit, The Spear Fund, Ballard said, “Rescuing kids and fighting child trafficking is an ugly and dark business, especially when—as the result of my work for more than 20 years—we continue to expose members of the powerful, well-funded child trafficking cartels. Evil pedophiles will stop at nothing, and they have allies in government, in the media, in big corporations, and even in public institutions. They continue to lie about and attempt to destroy my good name…and they will never stop.”  He pledged, “I and our vast army of supporters will likewise never stop.”
