A clearly frustrated Gabriel Sterling, the implementation manager for Georgia’s new voting system, held a press conference on Monday in which he debunked Donald Trump’s claims of widespread fraud in the state’s election.
The press conference came one day after the contents of Donald Trump’s phone call with Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger was leaked.
During the call, Trump insisted that he actually won the state of Georgia, citing false claims of voter fraud that he believes robbed him of his victory. He demanded that Raffensperger “finds 11,780 votes” and warned that he was taking a big risk if he does not comply with his wishes.
“This is all easily, provably false, yet the president persists,” Sterling said during the press conference. “And by doing so, [he] undermines Georgians’ faith in the election system, especially Republican Georgians in this case, which is important because we have a big election coming up tomorrow and everybody deserves to have their vote counted if they want it to be, Republican and Democrat alike.”
