Georgia Secretary of State says Lindsey Graham implied he should try to throw away ballots

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Monday stood his ground on the allegations of Senator Lindsey Graham hinting at discarding some of the ballot boxes. He alleged that a few anomalies would not matter in a county with the highest frequent error of signatures.

Doubts have arisen after Raffensperger’s comments to the Washington Post indicated a possibility that biased poll workers could have counted the ballots with inconsistent signatures. He also alleged Graham, the South Carolina Republican and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee requested the disposal of mail-in ballots with unmatched signatures.

No evidence of fraudulent means is noticed in the 2020 elections.

Instead, Graham denies the allegations and says the President did not urge him to make the call.

Graham explained the allegations and said he was surprised about the claims made by Raffensperger as it was a general conversation and implied no requests of ballot discarding.

Graham argues he only intended an explanation of how mail-in ballots are verified in the County and validated. 

Raffensperger claims the elections were free and fair and defended the election system in the US.
