Georgia Election Official Slams Trump, GOP Leaders for Enabling Violence Against Election Workers

HeadlineDec 02, 2020

As control of the Senate rests on two January runoff elections in Georgia, a high-level state election official slammed Trump for inciting violence against election workers.

Gabriel Sterling: “Mr. President, it looks like you likely lost the state of Georgia. We’re investigating. There’s always a possibility. I get it. And you have the rights to go through the courts. What you don’t have the ability to do — and you need to step up and say this — is, stop inspiring people to commit potential acts of violence. Someone’s going to get hurt. Someone’s going to get shot. Someone’s going to get killed.”

Gabriel Sterling is Georgia’s voting system implementation manager and a Republican. He also took aim at Georgia’s two Republican senators, David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, for not condemning the violent threats coming from Trump supporters.
