Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said voting rights activist Stacey Abrams “conned” Georgia election officials, leading to a Democratic presidential win there for the first time in nearly two decades.
Graham took issue with voter signature checks in the state known as consent decree, a legal settlement reached in March that followed a lawsuit by the Georgia Democratic Party, which argued minorities had been disproportionately impacted when their ballots were rejected.
The settlement addresses what was seen as a lack of standards in comparing signatures. President Trump and other allies including Graham, insist the agreement prevented election officials from properly checking signatures, resulting in unsubstantiated election fraud that handed President-elect Joe Biden a win in the state.
