Sen. Lindsey Graham: How Do 6 People in Pennsylvania Die, Then Register, Then Vote?

Share

Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham raised questions Sunday about deceased citizens voting in Pennsylvania.

In an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” with host Maria Bartiromo, Graham restated allegations from President Donald Trump’s campaign about voter fraud in the 2020 election.

“The Trump team has canvassed all early voters and absentee/mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania, and they found over 100 people they think were dead, but 15 people that we’ve verified to have been dead who voted,” the senator said.

“But here’s the one that gets me: Six people registered after they died and voted. In Pennsylvania, I guess, you’re never out of it.”

Graham added, “If Republicans don’t challenge and change the U.S. election system, there will never be another Republican president elected again.”

The Trump campaign has been pursuing legal action in several states regarding alleged fraud in last week’s election, which many outlets called for Democrat Joe Biden on Saturday morning.

Graham said the media’s declarations were premature given the looming court fights and recounts.

“This is a contested election,” he told Bartiromo. “The media doesn’t decide who becomes president. If they did, you would never have a Republican president forever.”



“President Trump should not concede,” Graham added, urging Republicans to “keep fighting for every legal and live vote.”

Although there seem to have been instances of voter fraud in some states, it currently doesn’t appear to have been widespread.

Republican Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey expressed his doubts about rampant illegal voting Friday.

“There is simply no evidence that anybody has shown me — or anyone else I’m aware of — of any kind of widespread corruption or fraud,” Toomey said on “CBS This Morning.”

Toomey expanded his thoughts about the election on Twitter.

Successful litigation and recounts in several battleground states likely would be needed to swing the election in Trump’s favor.

This is different from the 2000 election, where Republican George W. Bush and Democrat Al Gore were only contesting votes in Florida.

Unfortunately for many Trump supporters, some lawsuits that have been filed have already failed.

“This court finds that while there are assertions made by the plaintiffs that there is no evidence in support of those assertions,” Wayne County Circuit Judge Timothy Kenny said last week regarding delaying result certification in Michigan, according to NPR.

The Electoral College will not choose the next president until Dec. 14, but Republicans need to start preparing themselves for the probability of a Biden administration.
