Georgian Secretary of State fights Lindsey Graham over electoral fraud allegations

Georgia’s top election official is under attack by President Donald Trump and fellow Republicans in the aftermath of the stormy election season. Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger disputes allegations of widespread electoral fraud in Georgia from Trump’s campaign since unofficial returns showed Democrat Joe Biden a 14,000-vote lead in the once-reliable state. The two US senators from Georgia, David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, have called for Raffensperger’s resignation. “I felt they were under pressure from the Trump campaign and they sent him over there,” Raffensperger said of their letter. “I don’t know if there is a superficial request to resign, but I’m not going anywhere.” The state’s Republican governor and members of Congress have pushed for inquiries. Raffensperger has ordered a manual audit of the presidential race, but says he doesn’t think the outcome will change. State law requires an audit, but leaves the choice of race to the top election official. “As a Republican I think I’ll probably be disappointed with the outcome, but as Secretary of State I can be quite comfortable with the ballot count and that’s why we went to- beyond the call of duty, ”he said. Raffensperger also said that US Senator Lindsey Graham asked him if he had the power to reject certain mail-in ballots. He told the Washington Post that he interpreted the question as a suggestion to reject legally filed ballots. Graham said on Monday it was “ridiculous”. He said he was trying to find out how signature verification for postal votes works in Georgia.
