The Republican secretary of state in Georgia said he believes that President Donald Trump cost himself votes with his campaign to undermine mail-in voting.
Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said Trump’s frequent and unsubstantiated accusations that mail-in voting is ripe for fraud likely contributed to 24,500 people who voted by absentee ballot in the state’s Republican primary not voting in the Nov. 3 election — possibly accounting for President-elect Joe Biden’s 13,000-vote advantage in the state.
“In effect, what you’re doing is you are suppressing your own voters,” Raffensperger said in a telephone interview. “I have no control over what campaigns do, and if they do ill-advised actions that suppress their own vote, what can I do?”
What a dope, Lord Damp Nut screwed his own pooch and eff’ed his own rat.
