Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) and David Perdue (R-Ga.) on Monday called for the resignation of their home state’s chief elections official, according to a tweet posted by The Daily Caller’s Henry Rodgers.

This comes after Joe Biden was declared the president-elect on Saturday by multiple media outlets, following his leads in multiple states continuing to increase as more ballots were counted and added to the tallies, most importantly in Pennsylvania. Additionally, Biden leads President Donald Trump in Georgia by about 10,000 votes with 99% counted as of 3:38 pm and the Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Friday said there will be a recount.

Trump has not conceded the election yet, saying that the election is “far from over” and emphasizing that he will continue his legal challenges against the election results. He has made allegations of voter fraud taking place.

In a joint statement on Monday afternoon, both of Georgia’s U.S. senators, who are set to face runoff elections in their respective re-election fights, called for Raffensperger’s resignation due to allegations of voter fraud and election irregularities.

“The management of Georgia elections has become an embarrassment for our state. Georgians are outraged, and rightly so,” the statement said in its introduction. “We have been clear from the beginning: every legal vote cast should be counted. Any illegal vote must not. And there must be transparency and uniformity in the counting process.”

The statement then turns the attention toward the Secretary of State, saying that “While blame certainly lies elsewhere as well, the buck ultimately stops with the Secretary of State.”

“The mismanagement and lack of transparency from the Secretary of State is unacceptable,” the Senators wrote. “Honest elections are paramount to the foundation of our democracy. The Secretary of State has failed to deliver honest and transparent elections. He failed the people of Georgia, and he should step down immediately.”

Raffensperger has not spoken publicly about this request for him to step down and has not made any indication that he plans to leave his post.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
