Former President Donald Trump praised State Senator Burt Jones (R-Jackson) for his efforts in examining the results of the 2020 election while knocking Governor Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger for their lack of action.
“Thank you to Senator Burt Jones and all of the other Patriots for continuing the fight. Brian Kemp and Brad Raffensperger have done an absolutely terrible job of watching over Voter Integrity in Georgia. They must be held accountable!” Trump said in a statement.
Jones has been a strong advocate for a deeper look into the previous election results. Earlier this year, Jones joined Sen. Brandon Beach (R-Alpharetta) and traveled to Phoenix, Arizona to tour the ongoing Maricopa County ballot audit.
Jones has called for similar action to be taken in Georgia.
Most recently, the state lawmaker called for legislative oversight and an investigation into Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and the irregularities that occurred in Fulton County.
“Trusted, transparent, and secure elections are the bedrock of our democracy. As the head of our elections in Georgia, the buck stops with the secretary of state, and our citizens deserve answers to these questions and to have their faith in our electoral process restored,” Jones wrote in a letter to the chairman of the Oversight Committee.
In addition to praising Jones, Trump took aim at Raffensperger and Governor Brian Kemp.
“The Governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp, together with Brad Raffensperger, allowed this Election in Georgia to be Rigged and Stolen. Why they ever agreed to Stacey Abram’s Consent Decree nobody will ever know,” he continued.
The former president has repeatedly criticized the duo for the perceived lack of action during the 2020 election. After numerous reports of potential issues, Raffensperger — just recently — opened an investigation into the process in Fulton County.
