ATLANTA – Gabriel Sterling, the Voting Systems Manager for the Georgia Secretary of State’s office, came out swinging during a press conference Tuesday afternoon after weeks of harassment, threats, and division.
“It has all gone too far,” Sterling said. “This has to stop!”
Sterling started the press conference calling out President Donald Trump and Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, who he said he still fully supports, for not coming out against the on-going threats being made on Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, his wife, and numerous elections officials and contractors.
“Be the bigger man here and step in and tell your supporters to stop,” Sterling, a life-long conservative, directly challenged the president.
He said the “straw that broke the camel’s back” was a 20-something Gwinnett County contractor with Dominion, the company entrusted with Georgia’s new voting system, had a noose out in front of his home with his name on it after a video was posted online claiming to show him “manipulate data.”
“He just took a job,” an emotional Sterling said adding he chose to have a high-profile job, but the young man who was threatened was just doing his job. “People started accusing him of treason.”
Sterling asserted the contractor did nothing wrong and was transferring a report on batches so that he could read it.
He also outlined how Raffensperger’s wife has been receiving “sexualized threats” on her personal phone.
“…Death threats, physical threats, intimidation is too much. It’s not right. They’ve lost the moral high ground,” Sterling said.\
