Appearing for an interview on Fox Business, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina told President Donald Trump not to concede and urged Republicans to “keep fighting” for victory, claiming without evidence that dead people had voted in Pennsylvania and elsewhere.
Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo kicked off her interview with Graham on Sunday by asking the senator to “tell us about the evidence you have of dead people voting.”
“Number one, this is a contested election. The media doesn’t decide who becomes president. If they did, you would never have a Republican president for forever. We’re discounting them,” Graham told host Maria Bartiromo, even though Fox news had already called the presidential race for Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
“So what happened — the Trump team has canvassed all early voters with absentee mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania, and they found over 100 people they think were dead, but 15 people that we verified to have been dead who voted,” Graham claimed, without providing evidence to substantiate the claims. “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, who last week promised Fox News host Sean Hannity that he would donate $500,000 to the Trump campaign’s legal fund, did not specify the party affiliation of the alleged dead voters but warned that there will “never be another Republican president elected again” if the GOP does not change the electoral system.
“If Republicans — if we don’t challenge and change the U.S. election system, there’ll never be another Republican president elected again. President Trump should not concede,” he said. “We’re down to less than 10,000 votes in Georgia. He’s going to win North Carolina. We’ve gone from 93,000 votes to less than 20,000 votes in Arizona with more votes to be counted. There are allegations of system failure, fraud.”
The margin in Georgia stands at little more than 10,000 votes, according to the New York Times running tally.
To be clear, there is no evidence of widespread voter fraud. As of Sunday, the Trump campaign was 0 for 10 in its legal attempts to challenge the results of the election. Moreover, victories in recounts are virtually impossible.
