Georgia SOS staffer confirms Lindsey Graham asked about tossing votes

2 min read

Oh, Lindsey. What in God’s name are you up to? First of all, Donald Trump needs to overturn the results in more than one state. Flipping Georgia isn’t going to do anything. This is like trying to rig the lottery so you get two of the winning numbers ahead of time. It’s a pointless caper that could put ol’ Linds in the gulag just so he can be seen in public licking the gum off the bottom of Trump’s boot.

And now CNN is reporting that we have confirmation of Graham’s indecent proposal to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger:

The comments from the staffer, election implementation manager Gabriel Sterling, corroborate Raffensberger’s recent claims about the phone call with Graham, who is one of President Donald Trump’s most outspoken allies.

Earlier this week, Raffensberger accused Graham of asking him to “look hard and see how many ballots you could throw out,” referring to absentee ballots that skewed heavily in favor of President-elect Joe Biden. Graham denied the claim, saying that it was “ridiculous” that he tried to pressure Raffensberger to throw out legally cast ballots.

In response to a question from CNN about the incident, Sterling said on Tuesday, “What I heard was basically discussions about absentee ballots and if a potentially … if there was a percentage of signatures that weren’t really, truly matching, is there some point we could get to, we could say somebody went to a courtroom could say well, let’s throw (out) all these ballots because we have no way of knowing because the ballots are separated.”

Interesting how they’re trying to root out “corruption” only in states that Donald Trump barely lost. 

What a fucking clown show.
