Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger told The Washington Post that several Republicans, including Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), pressured him to throw out legal ballots.
Raffensperger, a Republican, told CNN that his family has received threats because he went public:
Yeah, some threats have come in, primarily through my wife’s cell phone number. That’s a little unsettling for her, obviously. The first ones came in more subtle, and then they got more graphic and then they’ve come in with vulgarity also.
You always think, I’m on this side of the aisle, obviously, and you always think your side wears the white hats. People are really upset about this.
At the end of the day, I understand how contentious it is. We’re going to follow the process, follow the law. The results will be what they are are. I will probably be disappointed because I was rooting for the Republicans to win. But I have a process, I have a law that I follow. Integrity in this office matters.
