Appearing with George Stephanopoulos this morning, amid intense criticism from President Trump Georgia Secretary of State reiterated no significant “systemic fraud” has been found in Georgia and “the people of Georgia spoke in this election.”
“We’ve never found systemic fraud, not enough to overturn the election,” Raffensperger said “We have over 250 cases right now. We reached out to the governor and asked for additional manpower resources that gives us additional reach to finish up these investigations quickly, but right now, we don’t see anything that would overturn the will of the people here, Georgia.”
“I’m a Republican. I vote for Republicans,” he continued “so I wish them well. The job of the Republican Party is to raise money and turn out the vote.”
“My job as secretary of state is to make sure we have honest and fair elections. It’s as simple as that, and integrity matters,” he added.
Thursday, appearing with Laura Ingraham, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp called for a signature audit, which he said would need to be ordered by Secretary of State Raffensperger.
“You know, I’ve called early on for a signature audit” Kemp to Ingraham “obviously the secretary of state, per the laws and the Constitution would have to order that; he has not done that.”
He continued “I think it should be done. I think, especially with what we saw today, it raises more questions. There needs to be transparency on that. I would again call for that, and I think in the next 24 hours hopefully we’ll see a lot more from the hearings that the legislature had today and we’ll be able to look and see what the next steps are.”
