ATLANTA (WJBF) – During Tuesday afternoon’s press conference, Gabriel Sterling, Voting System Implementation Manager with the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office, addressed numerous threats of violence received by officials working to certify the election results.
“A twenty-something tech in Gwinnett County today has death threats and a noose put up saying he should be hung for treason because he was transferring a report on batches from an EMS to a county computer so he could read it,” said Sterling.
Sterling called on President Trump and other elected officials to condemn the threats.
“Mr. President, you have not condemned these actions or this language. Senators, you have not condemned this language or these actions. This has to stop. We need you to step up. And if you’re going to take a position of leadership…show some.”
