Georgia Secretary of State Raffensperger says media 'showed their bias' on state voting law, defends record

Perhaps the most well-known secretary of state in the U.S. due to Georgia’s prominence in elections drama over the past four years, Raffensperger told Fox News Digital he’s always “followed the law and followed the Constitution” in his position. Lambasted by both Trump and, indirectly, President Biden for the state’s voting procedures, he holds a unique place in American politics. 

“The national media, by and large, showed their bias, and it was all leaning on the left side of the aisle,” he said. “If someone said something, they never fact-checked it, said what is the actual truth about this? It’s real easy. Just read the bill. It’s less than 100 pages. You could have read that bill. It’s not like D.C. where you write 1,000-page bills… Ours is less than 100. You’re going to see right there, point blank, 17 days of early voting.” 

“We have accessibility, but we have security,” he added. “We’ve had photo I.D. for in-person voting. We now have photo ID for absentee voting. That shores up security, shores up confidence. And that’s a good thing.”
