Georgia election official attacks Trump, senators for threats from supporters
A senior Georgia election official on Tuesday angrily criticized the rhetoric surrounding the U.S. election and the threats of violence that resulted, specifically calling on President Donald to restrain his supporters.
During a routine press conference at the State Capitol in Atlanta to take stock of Trump’s requested presidential race recount, Gabriel Sterling warned the president and the two U.S. senators from Georgia – both of whom are locked in close races against the Democrats and called for the resignation of Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger for claiming to have mismanaged the election.
“Mr. President, you did not condemn these actions or this language. Senators, you have not condemned this language or these actions, ”Sterling said, visibly angry. “It must stop. We need you to step in, and if you want to take a leadership position, show it. ”

People drove trailers past Raffensperger’s house, entered his property and sent sexualized threats on his wife’s cell phone, said Sterling, a Republican who oversaw the implementation of the new voting system. the state.

Raffensperger and Sterling both have police officers stationed outside their homes, and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said it is investigating possible threats against officials to determine their credibility.

Sterling said his anger boiled over when he learned that a Dominion Voting Systems contractor helping with the recount effort in suburban Gwinnett County had received death threats after someone filmed a video of him transferring a report to a county computer and falsely claiming that the young man was manipulating the election. The data.

“There’s a noose over there with his name on it. It’s not fair, ”Sterling said, adding that the entrepreneur had not sought the limelight by taking a high-level job like Sterling or running for a job like Raffensperger. “This kid took a job. He just took a job. ”

Trump last week called Raffensperger an “enemy of the people,” Sterling said. “It helped open the floodgates to this kind of shit. ”

Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh said the campaign is trying to ensure that “all legal votes are counted and not all illegal votes are counted. No one should engage in threats or violence, and if that has happened, we fully condemn it. ”

Courts and election officials have seen no evidence to back up Trump’s claims – nor has the US Department of Justice, according to Attorney General William Barr, a person appointed by Trump widely regarded as loyal to him.

Sterling urged the president to step in and tell his supporters not to commit acts of violence. “Someone is going to be hurt. Someone is going to get shot. Someone is going to get killed, ”he said.
