Georgia Republican Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger doubled down of his accusation that the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Lindsey Graham asked him to toss out legally cast ballots in Georgia.
In an interview with CNN, Raffensperger said he assumed that Graham was calling to talk about the two January 5th Senate run offs in the state. But according to the SoS, Graham “asked if ballots can be matched back to the envelope.”
“Sen. Graham implied for us to audit the envelopes them throw out the ballots for counties who had the highest frequency error of signatures,” Raffensperger said.
After the report from the Washington Post circulated on line on Monday, Graham released a statement calling the accusation “ridiculous”. He said he was just “trying to find out how to verify signatures for mail in ballots in these states.”
But, Raffensperger, told the Wall Street Journal that there were witnesses on the call that can prove Sen. Graham is lying.
Raffensperger said, that he had staffers with him on that call who agreed not to act on any of Mr. Graham’s suggestions because, “we have laws in place,” he said.
