“Lionizing Brad Raffensperger’s a bit wrong-headed,” the voting rights activist and former Georgia gubernatorial candidate told Stephen Colbert on Monday. “This man is not defending the right of voters. He’s defending an election that he ran.”
She added that Raffensperger is working with his fellow Republicans in the state to limit access to the ballot box with new restrictions that could take effect in time for the next election.
Still, Abrams conceded that it’s a “good thing” that Raffensperger is defending the presidential election results, in which President-elect Joe Biden became the first Democratic presidential candidate to win the state since 1992.
But she also offered a reality check: “Even a broken clock is right twice a day.”
