GA State Election Official Berates the Public for Threats of Violence

On Tuesday, the voting implementation manager, Gabriel Sterling who works with the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office angrily berated the public on their irresponsible and immature behavior regarding the election results in Georgia.

He showed visible signs of anger and was shaken about some of the threats the public sent to the election workers. He exclaimed, “It’s all gone too far.”

A 20-year-old contract had received death threats and a noose, saying he should be hanged for treason. The tech was simply transporting a report for batches in Gwinnett County.

The state election officials are receiving police protection, as they had been receiving both sexual violence threats and death threats.

However, the 20-year-old who had received death threats was just an employee doing his job. Sterling not only berated the public, but he also called upon the President and the GOP Senators to condemn this behavior. He stated, “If you’re going to take a position of leadership – show some.”

While he encouraged the people to use their First Amendment rights, death threats and intimidation was not right. He also addressed Pres. Trump in his speech, stating, “Mr. President, it looks like you likely lost the state of Georgia.” He further explained that if this continued violent language did not stop, someone would get hurt, shot, or killed.

Senator Perdue and Senator Loeffler of Georgia have each sent a statement stating that they do not condone violence of any kind.
