Raphael Warnock Steps on a Rake When Asked Why He Should Be Given 'Another Chance' – RedState

The Georgia runoff election is quickly approaching, with Herschel Walker and Raphael Warnock battling it out for the last undecided US Senate seat of the cycle.

Naturally, that means electioneering is in full swing. Warnock has famously received a metric ton of out-of-state cash, and now, he’s apparently contacting out-of-state voters to vote for him. Yeah, I’m as confused as you are.

Dom Lucre, who is a resident of Tennessee and hasn’t lived in Georgia in years, was called by the Warnock campaign, and he recorded the entire exchange. Here’s what it sounded like.

We’ll get into the content in a moment, but this goes to show how widespread these “mistakes” are when campaigns are relying on outdated call lists of previous voters. In this case, it just so happens that Lucre is a conservative who decided to blow the whistle. But how many people has Warnock called who will ultimately end up voting in Georgia, either deliberately or falsely believing they are eligible, and not be caught by the system? There’s something insidious about the entire thing, and I think Warnock’s campaign knows exactly what it’s doing here.

Regardless, the video is instructive in more ways than just showing how voter fraud, even if unintentional, happens. The conversation itself is fascinating as the Warnock campaigner berates Lucre for daring to think for himself as a black conservative. She also tells several pointed lies, including one about most “dark money” coming from Republicans. Honestly, I’m surprised she stuck around for as long as she did when it became clear that Lucre wasn’t going to be persuaded. The campaign worker kept saying she “understands,” but she clearly didn’t want to hear anything but what her script was telling her to expect.

Everything about our elections outside of some states that do things right just feels wrong. The way ballot harvesting has become so prominent. The way out-of-state residents are so often caught up in statewide campaigns. Then there’s the avalanche of money coming from far-off sources trying to sway local opinions. This isn’t the way things are supposed to go. Unfortunately, nothing changes until power is retaken by those who are willing to change it.
