Ahead of the Georgia's Senate runoff elections, Gabriel Sterling, the state's voting system implementation manager, told CNN President Trump's "actions and statements and those of his team are essentially suppressing the vote in Georgia."
Speaking to CNN’s Erin Burnett on Monday, Sterling addressed President Trump's phone call in which he demanded Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger "find" the votes needed for him to win the elections in his state.
Sterling said when he heard the call between Raffensperger and the President he was not surprised. He compared having to refute the claims of voter fraud and tampering to “Groundhog Day – over and over again."
Asked about the recording of the call, Sterling said, “There’s a history of the President not necessarily characterizing things the way they actually are, so having a backup recording is probably the better part of valor for most anybody that is going to be discussing anything with him.”
"The President put out a tweet, totally mischaracterizing what happened on the call. So, I think now through transparency, people have seen what happened on that call. And it was inappropriate in many people’s minds. I think that it’s better to have that information out there,” he said.
Sterling renewed his calls for people to vote on Tuesday.
