In March, TGP reported on how Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger secretly recorded Trump’s call, emerged misinformation about the call from the liberal media, and how he attempted to erase the audit in a trash folder.
The investigators revealed Raffesperger’s lie and attempted to hide the proof.

Joe Hoft reported that Raffensperger petitioned the court to request that Georgia doesn’t have to give paper ballots to the auditor’s request and awarded by the court.
Now, all of a sudden, he praises the audit! He supports it.
The New York Times covered this story.
Brad Raffensperger, the Republican secretary of state in Georgia, earned widespread praise for his staunch defense of the election results in his state last year in the face of growing threats and pressure from former President Donald J. Trump.
As Mr. Trump spread falsehoods about the election, Mr. Raffensperger vocally debunked them, culminating in a 10-page letter addressed to Congress on Jan. 6, the day of the Capitol riot, in which he refuted, point by point, Mr. Trump’s false claims about election fraud in Georgia.
But after a Georgia judge ruled late last week that a group of voters must be allowed to view copies of all 147,000 absentee ballots cast in the state’s largest county, in yet another disinformation-driven campaign, Mr. Raffensperger voiced his support for the effort, saying that inspecting the ballots would provide “another layer of transparency and citizen engagement.”
As Mr. Trump’s election falsehoods continue to hold sway over many lawmakers and voters, with efforts to review ballots still underway in states across the country, we spoke with Mr. Raffensperger about why he supported the new review ordered by the judge and how he thinks about public trust, or mistrust, in the electoral process. The interview has been lightly edited and condensed.
