Brad Raffensperger Sent Larry David a Clever Letter About Curb Your Enthusiasm Plotline

If you were to rank the Republican lawmakers most liked by Democrats, Brad Raffensperger would be high up on the list. In 2020, the Georgia Secretary of State recorded a phone call where Donald Trump demanded that he find thousands of votes. Still, Raffenspergr is a Conservative and will still take offense at Republicans being mocked.

The first episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm's final season took on Georgia's SB 202 law which bans outsiders from giving food or beverages to people waiting on polling lines. Larry is arrested for giving a friend (who is a Black woman) a drink of water. 

Raffensperger's letter read in part, "As the chief elections officer for the State of Georgia, we’d like to congratulate you on becoming the first and, to our knowledge, only person arrested for distributing water bottles to voters within 150 feet of a polling station. We apologize if you didn’t receive celebrity treatment at the local jail. I’m afraid they’ve gotten used to bigger stars. It’s the TMZ of mugshots."'

The missive from the official continued:

"Given that Democrats have described the limited ban on food and water in voting lines as a threat to public health, we do hope that Leon’s aunt avoided a tragic death, even though that would allow you to keep those sporty glasses. Moving forward, we would encourage her to avoid long lines by employing the well known ‘chat and cut,’ whereby one engages an acquaintance in fake conversation in order to join that person in line
