格雷厄姆断然拒绝了要求他因佐治亚州干预而辞职的呼声g21世界播


Sen. Lindsey Graham fired back on Wednesday at Democrats calling on him to resign following reports that he asked election officials in key swing states to intervene in the vote counting process in ways that could help President Trump. g21世界播

周三,参议员林赛·格雷厄姆(Lindsey Graham)回击要求他辞职的民主党人,此前有报道称,格雷厄姆要求关键摇摆州的选举官员以有助于特朗普总统的方式干预计票过程。g21世界播


Notably, Graham took aim at two members of the so-called Squad of freshman Democratic women — Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and a second-term House member who is frequently allied with them, Pramila Jayapal of Washington. g21世界播

值得注意的是,格雷厄姆把矛头对准了所谓的民主党新生女性小组的两名成员--明尼苏达州众议员伊尔汗·奥马尔(Ilhan Omar)和密歇根州众议员拉希达·特莱布(Rashida Tlaib),以及经常与她们结盟的第二任期众议员、华盛顿州众议员普拉米拉·贾亚帕尔(Pramila Jayapal)。g21世界播


“It’s time for Lindsey Graham to submit his resignation,” Omar tweeted on Wednesday. g21世界播

周三,奥马尔在推特上写道:“是时候让林赛·格雷厄姆递交辞呈了。”g21世界播


“First, Graham and Republicans fought like hell to suppress the vote. Then, Black, brown, and young voters organized and turned out in record numbers to win the state anyway. Now, he's trying to get their legally cast votes thrown out,” Jayapal wrote. “He must resign.” g21世界播

“首先,格雷厄姆和共和党人为压制投票进行了激烈的斗争。然后,黑人、棕色和年轻选民组织起来,以创纪录的数量参加投票,无论如何都要赢得该州的选举。现在,他正试图让他们合法的投票被否决。“贾亚帕尔写道。“他必须辞职。”g21世界播


Tlaib stopped short of calling for Graham to resign, but accused him of attempting “to commit voter fraud.” g21世界播

特莱布没有要求格雷厄姆辞职,但指责他企图“实施选民欺诈”。g21世界播


“Lindsey Graham attempted to commit voter fraud. He can’t get away with it. Actions result in consequences,” Tlaib said in her own Twitter message. “This unethical and possibly illegal action from a sitting U.S. Senator demands a swift consequence. Thank you @RepJayapal for demanding it.” g21世界播

“林赛·格雷厄姆(Lindsey Graham)试图实施选民欺诈。他无法逃脱惩罚。行为要自食其果。“Tlaib在她自己的推特消息中说。他说:“在任的美国参议员的这种不道德甚至可能违法的行为要求迅速产生后果。谢谢你@RepJayapal的要求。“。g21世界播


On Monday, the Washington Post reported that Graham had called Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Friday seeking to have legally cast absentee ballots disqualified, which could cut into Biden’s roughly 13,000-vote lead over President Trump there. g21世界播

星期一,《华盛顿邮报》报道说,格雷厄姆星期五打电话给佐治亚州共和党国务卿布拉德·拉芬斯伯格,要求取消合法缺席选票的资格,这可能会削弱拜登在该州对特朗普总统大约1.3万张选票的领先优势。g21世界播


“It was just an implication of, 'Look hard and see how many ballots you could throw out,’” Raffensperger told CNN, noting that he had no intention of honoring that request. g21世界播

Raffensperger对CNN说:“这只是暗示,‘仔细看,看看你能扔掉多少张选票。’”他指出,他无意接受这一请求。g21世界播


Officials in Georgia have been mounting a recount of the vote, but experts believe that it will not overturn Biden’s apparent win in the state. g21世界播

佐治亚州官员一直在重新计票,但专家认为这不会推翻拜登在该州的明显胜利。g21世界播

Graham denied that he had asked Raffensperger to help secure a win for Trump in Georgia. g21世界播

格雷厄姆否认他曾要求拉芬斯伯格帮助特朗普在佐治亚州获胜。g21世界播


“I’m asking him to explain to me the system,” Graham told reporters on Capitol Hill. “If you send a mail-in ballot to a county, a single person verifies the signature against what’s in the database. They don’t mail out ballots. You got to actually request one. So they expanded mail-in voting, and how you verify the signature, to me, is the big issue of mail-in voting.” g21世界播

格雷厄姆在国会山对记者说:“我要求他向我解释一下这个系统。”“如果你把邮寄的选票寄到一个县,一个人就会根据数据库中的信息来验证签名。”他们不寄选票。你真的得申请一份。所以他们扩大了邮寄投票,对我来说,如何验证签名是邮寄投票的大问题。“。g21世界播


But Graham also disclosed on Tuesday that he had spoken to Arizona’s Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, a top ally of Trump’s, about the way mail-in ballots were counted in that battleground state, and to an official in Nevada about procedures there. g21世界播

但格雷厄姆周二也透露,他已经与特朗普的头号盟友、亚利桑那州共和党州长道格·杜西(Doug Ducey)讨论了这个摇摆州的邮寄选票统计方式,并与内华达州的一名官员讨论了那里的程序。g21世界播


Arizona and Nevada were won by Biden by fairly small margins, and the former vice president leads narrowly in Georgia, the one state that Associated Press has not yet called. The AP count shows Biden ahead of Trump by 290 to 232; the three states together have 33 Electoral College votes, so even if Trump won all three he would still be short of the 270 he needs to secure a second term. g21世界播

拜登在亚利桑那州和内华达州以相当小的优势获胜,这位前副总统在佐治亚州以微弱优势领先,而佐治亚州是美联社尚未致电的一个州。美联社的计票结果显示,拜登以290票对232票领先于特朗普;这三个州总共有33张选举人票,所以即使特朗普赢得了全部三张选票,他仍然缺少连任所需的270张选票。g21世界播


Trump and his allies have been trying to snatch those states away from Biden through a variety of increasingly desperate gambits, in and out of courts, and mounted similar efforts in Pennsylvania and Michigan. None of those gambits seem likely to succeed. With one minor exception, Trump’s legal team has failed to prevail in any of the nearly 20 election-related cases they have brought over the last two weeks. g21世界播

特朗普和他的盟友一直试图通过各种越来越绝望的策略,在法庭内外从拜登手中夺取这些州,并在宾夕法尼亚州和密歇根州发起了类似的努力。这些策略似乎都不太可能成功。除了一个小例外,特朗普的法律团队在过去两周提起的近20起与选举有关的案件中,没有一起胜诉。g21世界播


Graham’s actions have also caught the attention of three of the nation’s authorities on ethics in politics, who on Wednesday sent a letter to the Senate Ethics Committee chairman and vice chairman, Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., and Sen. Chris Coons, D-Md., seeking an investigation into what they called Graham’s suggestion that Raffensperger “disenfranchise Georgia voters.” g21世界播

格雷厄姆的行为也引起了美国三个政治伦理权威的注意,他们在周三致信参议院道德委员会主席兼副主席、俄克拉何马州共和党参议员詹姆斯·兰克福德(James Lankford)和马里兰州民主党参议员克里斯·库恩斯(Chris Coons),要求对格雷厄姆关于拉芬斯伯格“剥夺佐治亚州选民公民权”的说法进行调查。g21世界播


The letter was signed by Walter Shaub, the former federal ethics watchdog; Richard Painter, chief ethics lawyer under President George W. Bush; and Claire Finkelstein, director of the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Ethics and the Rule of Law. g21世界播

这封信由前联邦伦理监督机构沃尔特·肖布(Walter Shaub)、乔治·W·布什(George W.Bush)政府的首席伦理律师理查德·佩因特(Richard Painter)和宾夕法尼亚大学(University Of Pennsylvania)道德与法治中心主任克莱尔·芬克尔斯坦(Claire Finkelstein)签署。g21世界播


“If these allegations are true, Senator Graham’s conduct constitutes an abuse of office and conduct unbecoming of a senator,” the letter states. “For the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee to suggest to a state Secretary of State that he refrain from counting lawful votes threatens the electoral process and damages representative democracy.” g21世界播

信中写道:“如果这些指控属实,格雷厄姆参议员的行为就构成了滥用职权和不符合参议员身份的行为。”“参议院司法委员会主席建议国务卿不要计算合法选票,这威胁到了选举过程,损害了代议制民主。”g21世界播


In a follow-up tweet Wednesday, Graham did not address the request for an ethics investigation. Instead, he made the dispute about partisan politics and his “liberal critics.” g21世界播

在周三的后续推文中,格雷厄姆没有回应道德调查的要求。相反,他提出了关于党派政治和他的“自由派批评者”的争论。g21世界播


“I will continue to try to find common ground where possible, but will not hesitate to vigorously oppose the radical domestic and foreign policy agenda of The Squad and other liberal critics,” Graham wrote. “To those who are trying to silence me — you will fail miserably!” g21世界播

格雷厄姆写道:“在可能的情况下,我将继续努力寻找共同点,但会毫不犹豫地大力反对该小组和其他自由派批评者的激进内外政策议程。”“对于那些试图让我闭嘴的人,你们会惨败的!”g21世界播
