    Yup. And considering that the laws vary from state to state and he isn't from Georgia...

        Given that Graham has zero influence in Georgia (he is from South Carolina) I don't think it implied what you are reading into it.

          I agree which is why my diverse background is relevant.

          Though your attitude of dismissing the value of expertise and education is noted. You're also falling into the standard low-IQ conservative trap of reasoning by anecdote rather than statistics again. Just because you can cite 2 instances of scientists who were terrible outside their immediate field, it doesn't imply that that is true generally.

            But not in the areas in which you often pontificate on.

              If he has zero influence then why make the call in the first place to suggest throwing out lawfully cast ballots? Are you saying you'd shrug off a similar call from Kamala Harris or Obama to, say, Maine?

                Raffensperger’s much more credible than Graham.


                “It was like a rumor Whac-A-Mole,” said Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. Despite being a Republican who voted for Trump, Raffensperger said he refused repeated attempts by Trump allies to get him to cross ethical lines. “I don’t think I had a choice. My job is to follow the law. We’re not going to get pushed off the needle on doing that. Integrity still matters.”

                  Again, each state has its own rules and guidelines. Graham is not from Georgia and probably does not know what they are. Moreover, he didn't try telling Raffensperger what to do.

                    Graham was trying to cut out the middleman, the courts.

                          Graham never suggested throwing out lawfully cast ballots, which is why this is all much ado about nothing.

                            Yes he did 'suggest.'

                              He suggested tossing out illegal ballots, not legal ones.

                                I think I spotted the problem here. It was not lawful ballots that he suggested be disposed of.
