Georgia Secretary State: Trump Threw Me Under The Bus
GEORGIA'S SECRETARY OF STATE SAYS TRUMP THREW HIM UNDER BUS DESPITE HIS SUPPORT
(CNN) – Georgia’s Secretary of State is calling out president Trump, saying the Commander in Chief threw him under the bus — despite his support.
In a USA Today opinion piece released on Wednesday, Brad Raffensperger says Georgia’s election went smoothly, which should be celebrated, but is instead overshadowed by claims of fraud by Trump.
Raffensperger, a Republican says there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the state’s election.
Even so he was attacked by Trump and GOP allies in the days leading up to Georgia’s certification of election results last week.
Georgia republican senators Kelly Loeffler and David Purdue called for him to resign.
And Georgia governor Brian Kemp pressured him to investigate baseless charges of election fraud.
In the op-ed, Raffensperger pointed out Trump’s refusal to accept the election defeat and wrote the campaign was following “a playbook written by a failed gubernatorial candidate two years before,” taking a swipe at democrat Stacey Abrams, who lost the Georgia gubernatorial race to Kemp in 2018.
President-elect Joe Biden was certified the winner in the peach state, despite Trump’s refusal to concede.
