Lindsey Graham tries to defend himself from alleged election-fixing scandal as backlash grows

On Tuesday morning, Sen. Lindsey Graham defended himself from the damning allegations that he had personally tried to pressure Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger into tossing legal ballots. Claiming he was just asking whether or not the “checks and balances” for mail-in votes were “good enough,” the South Carolina Senator desperately tried to do damage control in response to the growing public outrage.

If Mr. Raffensperger’s admissions to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer are to be believed, Graham has emerged from his highly contested re-election battle even more determined to perform as Donald Trump’s lickspittle in the Senate.

Last night, Raffensperger told Wolf Blitzer that “[Graham] asked if the ballots could be matched back to the voters…And then he, I got the sense it implied that then you could throw those out for any, if you look at the counties with the highest frequent error of signatures. So that’s the impression that I got…It was just an implication of, ‘Look hard and see how many ballots you could throw out.'”

Perhaps fed up with the assumption by his fellow Republicans that he is willing to throw his integrity and the law in the trash on behalf of Donald Trump, Raffensperger became one of the most prominent Republican officials to push back against Trump and his minions’ clumsy attempts to steal the election.

It is appalling that Lindsey Graham would try to abuse his position in order to have legal votes thrown out on behalf of the second-worst president in our nation’s history, and if it is confirmed, should lead to Graham’s impeachment — but won’t, of course, since Mitch McConnell and his Republican cronies have dedicated their careers to making it harder for people to vote and have long ago discarded any integrity or respect for the rule of law in the trash in their fanatical quest for power.

Democrats were quick to condemn Graham — and point the finger at the guiltiest party of all, Donald Trump, who still refuses to concede the election despite all evidence pointing to his loss.
