Georgia elections official lashes out at Trump, senators over threats from supporters

Georgia elections official lashes out at Trump, senators over threats from supporters

So far, Trump's legal team has not been able to substantiate any fraud allegations in court, prompting one federal judge appointed by Trump to write in an opinion, "Charges of unfairness are serious".

Raffensperger said multiple investigations in Georgia have found no evidence of widespread fraud, as alleged by Trump. "You just go to the secretary of state's website for the state of Georgia and register to vote there".

"We're investigating, there's always a possibility, I get it".

"Stop inspiring people to commit potential acts of violence".

"Someone's gonna get hurt, someone's going to get shot, someone's going to get killed".

Gabriel Sterling is a Republican who oversaw the implementation of the state's new voting system. But when larger counties return their recount figures, Sterling said he expects that Biden's win in the state will be again confirmed.

"His family is getting harassed now". And it's not right. Raffensperger accused the progressive nonprofit of sending two absentee ballot applications in one week to an old address of a Georgia voter. Tricia, his wife of 40 years, is getting sexualized threats through her cellphone.

His voice quaking with emotion, Sterling also decried sycophantic GOP senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler for not condemning the death threats made against Christopher Krebs, former head of the Cybersecurity Infrastructure Security Administration, and an employee of Dominion Voting Systems, the company that manufactured the voting machines used in Georgia.

"This has to stop", Sterling said.

The president lost the state of Georgia to President-elect Joe Biden, and its results were certified November 20 after the completion of a hand recount of the presidential election, which reaffirmed Mr. Biden's victory. "Senators, you have not condemned this language or these actions", Sterling said, visibly angry. This has to stop.

"We need you to step up and if you're gonna take a position of leadership show some".

Barrasso noted Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., remarking last month that once Democrats "take Georgia", they could "change America".

"You have to be responsible in your rhetoric, you have to be responsible in your statements, you have to be responsible in your deeds", Sterling said.

President Donald Trump speaks with reporters after participating in a video teleconference call with members of the military on Thanksgiving, Thursday, Nov. 26, 2020, at the White House in Washington.

Before the election, he had repeatedly raised the notion that mail-in voting could be especially vulnerable to fraud during the coronavirus pandemic as Americans feared going to polls and instead chose to vote by mail.

But that wasn't the only evidence of get-out-the-vote groups encouraging illegal behavior in the state, according to Raffensperger.
