the last book I ever read (I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump’s Catastrophic Final Year, excerpt seventeen)

from I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump’s Catastrophic Final Year by Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker:

Meanwhile, there were other Trump efforts afoot to influence the outcome in Georgia. On November 13, Lindsey Graham called Raffensperger in what the secretary of state considered a pressure tactic to get him to help overturn the results by improperly tossing out some legally cast ballots. Raffensperger later told Amy Gardner of The Washington Post that Graham had echoed Trump’s unfounded claims that Georgia had numerous voting irregularities. He said Graham questioned Georgia’s signature-matching law and whether political bias could have prompted poll workers to accept ballots with signatures that didn’t match voter registration records. He said Graham also asked him if he had the power to toss out all mail-in ballots for counties found to have higher erates of nonmatching signatures, a suggestion that shocked Raffensperger. Graham denied that he had proposed tossing legally cast votes and claimed he was only trying to understand the signature-matching law and process.
