Lin Wood, a pro-Trump attorney based in Georgia told Republicans at a rally on Wednesday to not vote in the crucial senate runoffs in January that will determine which party controls the Senate.
Wood said both Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, “have not earned your vote. Don’t you give it to them. Why would you go back and vote in another rigged election for god’s sake! Fix it! You gotta fix it!”, The Daily Beast reports.
Wood, who became famous on the right for representing a Covington Catholic student in defamation lawsuits and murderer Kyle Rittenhouse told the rally attendees to not be fooled twice, “this is Georgia, we ain’t dumb,” he said.
Wood appeared at the rally on Wednesday alongside former attorney for Donald Trump, Sidney Powell who said the runoffs didn’t need to happen because both Perdue and Loeffler already cleared 50 percent. Nether candidate did.
She also urged Georgia Republicans to boycott the election unless they are confident that their vote is secure.
“I think I would encourage all Georgians to make it known that you will not vote at all until your vote is secure,” Powell said.
Trump and his allies are alleging that there was massive voter fraud in the state’s election, but they are so far unable to provide any evidence to support their claim.
Their attacks on the state’s election officials have resulted in some receiving death threats.
On Tuesday, Gabriel Sterling, a Republican and a top Georgia elections official who oversaw the implementation of the state’s new voting system lashed out angrily at the rhetoric surrounding the election and the threats of violence that have resulted. He specifically called on Donald Trump to rein in his supporters.
Local Republicans have also asked Donald Trump to stop his attacks on the state’s election infrastructure fearing that it could affect turnout in the January 5 runoff elections.
That fear was exhibited by Democratic state Rep. and Trump ally Vernon Jones at the rally on Wednesday. He urged the crowd to vote in the runoffs. But, according to The Daily Beast after Jones made his plea, an unimpressed Wood said he disagreed and urged Republicans to only vote for Loeffler and Perdue if they called for a special session to investigate the race.
