ATLANTA — The reviews of Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s attempted distractions are in. Capitol Beat’s Beau Evans reports Secretary Raffensperger “presented no evidence” in his jump to conclusions with his latest claims against Georgia voters, while dodging responsibility as Georgia’s chief elections official and denying his culpability in voter suppression. With Election Day less than two months away, Secretary Raffensperger must focus on doing his job to ensure every Georgian has the opportunity to make their voice heard in a free, fair and safe election.
From Capitol Beat’s Beau Evans:
“Georgia’s top elections official is facing backlash from voting rights groups and a former secretary of state…”
“Raffensperger presented no evidence to support the… allegations… leading several voter advocates to slam the Republican secretary of state for going public with the claims before bringing proof of wrongdoing.
“Former Secretary of State Cathy Cox on Wednesday called Raffensperger’s announcement ‘highly irregular’ and ‘improper’, and suggested his actions aimed to ‘sow chaos and cast doubt’ on mail-in voting ahead of the Nov. 3 general election.’”
