Secretary of State official Gabriel Sterling slammed Donald Trump and the two Georgia Senators for not calling out those threatening officials.
Gabriel Sterling slams Trump & Georgia Senators
The cards are starting to fall. Just maybe many of Trump’s enablers and sycophants will jump off of the sinking ship. Watch the long version here.
Politico reported the following.
Gabriel Sterling, a top official in the Georgia secretary of state’s office, condemned President Donald Trump and the state’s two Republican senators, David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, in a fiery press conference Tuesday after a local election worker received death threats.
Sterling, who works for Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, opened the press conference by saying an election contractor in Gwinnett County had received death threats after conspiracy theorists spread videos of the worker on social media.
Sterling did not name the worker, who he called a “twenty-something tech” working for Dominion Voting Systems, a voting machine vendor that has become the subject of unfounded right-wing conspiracy theories regarding the election results. Sterling said the worker has “death threats and a noose put out, saying he should be hung for treason” and that his family has been harassed. Social media posts falsely accuse the worker by the name of manipulating data. (POLITICO is also not further identifying him for his safety.)
“Mr. President, you have not condemned these actions or this language,” he said. “Senators, you have not condemned this language or these actions. This has to stop. We need you to step up. And if you’re going to take a position of leadership, show some.”
Will the Georgia senators grow a spine? Doubtful.
