Georgia Secretary Of State Attacks Democrat For Not “Accepting Results” (Did He Forget The Trump Call?)

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger received a phone call after the 2020 election, pressuring him to find a way to flip the outcome in his state. That call didn’t come from Stacey Abrams, It came from Donald Trump, who was the President of the United States at the time, and had just lost his bid for re-election.

So, when Raffensperger wanted to make a joke about the Atlanta Braves winning the World Series, and someone refusing to accept the results, a lot of people were surprised at who he chose to target.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump is still campaigning on the false claim that he won the 2020 presidential election and had the win “stolen” from him through election fraud, and even announced in advance of the Virginia gubernatorial election that it would be “rigged” against Republican Glenn Youngkin.

When Raffensperger tweeted — from his official government account, no less — suggesting that the person likely to reject an outcome was Stacey Abrams, Twitter users were quick to point out the hypocrisy to him.

Incidentallly, Abrams, whose work to get out the vote has been credited as a major factor in Trump’s loss in Georgia, was tweeting her own congratulations to the Braves at almost the exact same moment.

Abrams did say that voter suppression was key to her 2018 loss as a candidate for governor of Georgia, but as NPR reported at the time, she also acknowledged his victory. Then, rather than following that up with a disinformation campaign, she worked to help Georgia voters access information and the polls.
