Lindsey Graham, who was once a critic of Donald Trump, became the president’s biggest backer in the Senate and has gone as far as to pushing his ideas about voter fraud.
Graham took to Twitter on Monday where he shared a report from Fox News about the two Georgia Republican Senators calling for a recount in the state and pushing Trump’s idea that the election was stolen from him.
Graham, who has been accused of trying to meddle in the election process to help overturn the election in Trump’s favor, tweeted the following:
Georgia should also change law requiring bipartisan signature verification of mail-in ballots for future elections. The current system only requires single individual to verify signatures.

In response, many Twitter users lashed out at Graham and called him out for spreading falsehoods and supporting Trump’s baseless claims.
Here are some of the responses:
@LindseyGrahamSC needs to be indicted on clear evidence of coercion of an elected official to subvert the will of the ppl.
If this is swept under the rug, then we have set a precedent that anyone can interfere in our elections & get away with it.

Bullshit. You have zero evidence of any fraud when it comes to signature matching or anything else. You are simply trying to steal Georgia for the president and disenfranchise as many voters as possible before the runoffs.
Trump lost and your insider-trading friends are next.

All you’re doing is delaying transition, trump needs to overturn multiple states, that he has zero chance of. Vaccine distribution is on the line here Lindsey, lives are on the line.

Little Lindsey is in a tizzy! Lets get him a boy toy to calm him down or up! Maybe a trip to Disneyland to be amongst the parents who take their kids there despite the pandemic,just to show that some people really trust him!A true blue patriot! Or slap his pukey face! Whatever!

Why does everything have to boil down to partisanship for you? Why isn’t “trained professional” enough? If you introduce partisanship to ballot counting, nobody’s vote will count. Your distrust for Americans is a projection of your own lack of integrity.

Why ask now that the law be changed? Why not back in 2016? Is this a requirement in ALL STATES, or just where Trump is losing?
Will you and Trump pay UPFRONT for the recounting of these ballots? Maybe a recount should be done in NC to make sure you won the election there, hmm?

When's the recount of your re-election votes? Just curious.

Maybe we should require voters to give blood, leave one sample w/ the poll worker, take one sample to their election office, spread a little on their ballot and then bring in people like you to only count the votes where all three samples match…all while standing on your head. pic.twitter.com/nsn12v52oB

My signature is my signature. Period. And no one can say it's not. My signature is not my identity, it is my acceptance of the terms presented before me.
And nothing else.
