GOP Senators Demand Geo. Sec. of State Resign Over Election System Failure

The two GOP candidates for U.S. Senate in Georgia, David Perdue (R-Ga.) and Kelly Loeffler, are demanding that the state’s Attorney General resign over the collapse of the state’s election system.

The two issued a joint statement slamming Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger for failing to “deliver honest and transparent elections.”

The pair called Raffensperger’s stewardship of the election “an embarrassment.”

“We believe when there are failures, they need to be called out – even when it’s in your own party,” Perdue and Loeffler said in their letter. “There have been too many failures in Georgia elections this year and the most recent election has shined a national light on the problems. While blame certainly lies elsewhere as well, the buck ultimately stops with the Secretary of State.”

“The mismanagement and lack of transparency from the Secretary of State is unacceptable. Honest elections are paramount to the foundation of our democracy. The Secretary of State has failed to deliver honest and transparent elections. He has failed the people of Georgia, and he should step down immediately,” the letter continued.

The joint letter comes on the heels of a total election failure in the Peach State.

The same two candidates are fighting for their political lives in run-off elections that might determine who controls the U.S. Senate in Washington.

For his part, Raffensperger refused the call to resign, and chided the candidates for not paying more attention to their coming run-off races.

Raffensperger issued his own letter in reply:
