Georgia Official Urges Donald Trump to Condemn Threats Against Election Workers
A Georgia election official urged President Trump on Tuesday to condemn threats against election officials doing their jobs.
Gabriel Sterling, voting-system implementation manager at the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office, said a contractor in Gwinnett County, Ga., received death threats after being falsely accused of manipulating election data.
“It has to stop,” Mr. Sterling said in emotional remarks at the state Capitol in Atlanta. “Mr. President, you have not condemned these actions or this language.”
He added: “I can’t begin to explain the level of anger I have right now over this. Every American, every Georgian, Republican and Democrat alike, should have that same level of anger.”
A video of his remarks was widely shared on social media.
