President Trump’s attorney Lin Wood is encouraging Georgia Trump supporters to withhold their votes from GOP Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue in the upcoming runoff election until the pair start fighting to overturn the presidential election results.
According to The Daily Mail, Wood tweeted on Sunday: “Politicians love votes & money (not necessarily in that order). Want to get @SenLoeffler & @sendavidperdue out of their basements to demand that action must be taken to fix steal of the 11/3 GA election? Threaten to withhold your votes & money. Demand that they represent you.”
Neither Loeffler nor Perdue have pushed Trump’s false voter fraud narrative, focusing instead on their upcoming elections, which will determine the balance of the Senate.
Wood’s effort to discourage Republicans from voting for Loeffler and Perdue could have significant consequences.
If they both lose, the Senate would be split 50-50, and incoming Vice President-elect Kamala Harris would serve as the tie-breaker, tilting the Senate to the Democrats.
The Daily Mail noted:
On Thursday a District Court Judge threw out a court case by Wood which was aimed at preventing the certification of Georgia’s election results.
Wood filed suit against Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and called into question a number of actions he believed undermined the integrity of the election.
Wood argued Georgia’s election should not be certified and another hand recount should be conducted but the Trump-appointed judge denied the emergency motion.
