During a conversation with Georgia’s Republican secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger, Sen. Lindsey Graham asks about signatures on ballots and implies that Georgia could throw out ballots.

“He asked if the ballots could be matched back to the voters,” Raffensperger told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on “The Situation Room” Monday evening. “And then he, I got the sense it implied that then you could throw those out for any, if you look at the counties with the highest frequent error of signatures. So that’s the impression that I got.”
He later added, “It was just an implication of, ‘Look hard and see how many ballots you could throw out.’ “

Graham also asks if Raffensperger can discard all mail-in ballots from counties with the highest rates of discrepancies between ballots signatures and state I.D. signatures.

According to Graham, he only wanted to know the process for verifying signatures on mail-in ballots, nothing more.

Other elected officials and political figures point out that Graham’s suggestion, if Raffensperger is being truthful, is a violation of U.S. law.

Three attorneys file an ethics complaint against Graham.
