Sterling, a Republican official who oversees voting systems in Georgia, said at a news conference that an election contractor in Gwinnett County has "death threats and a noose put out saying he should be hung for treason."
Trump's unsupported allegations that election fraud caused his defeat have gained no traction in court, where he has suffered a string of legal setbacks.
But Sterling on Tuesday said his rhetoric is having an effect, asking Trump to "step up" and "stop inspiring people to commit potential acts of violence."
GABRIEL STERLING: It has all gone too far, all of it. Joe diGenova today asked for Chris Krebs, a patriot who ran CISA, to be shot. A 20-something tech in Gwinnett County today has death threats and a noose put out saying he should be hung for treason because he was transferring a report on batches from an EMS to a county computer so he could read it. It has to stop.
Mr. President, you have not condemned these actions or this language. Senators, you have not condemned this language or these actions. This has to stop.
Yes, fight for every legal vote. Go through your due process. We encourage you. Use your First Amendment. That's fine. Death threats, physical threats, intimidation, it's too much.
Mr. President, it looks like you likely lost the state of Georgia. We're investigating. There's always a possibility. I get it. You have the rights to go through the courts. What you don't have the ability to do-- and you need to step up and say this-- is stop inspiring people to commit potential acts of violence. Someone's going to get hurt. Someone's going to get shot. Someone's going to get killed.
