A pro-Trump county’s GOP wants an audit of the 2020 election results, despite the county’s state senator expressing confusion over the need to verify votes in a county where former President Donald Trump won 65% of the vote.
The Lexington County South Carolina Republicans passed a resolution this week calling for Republican leaders to produce a plan to investigate “questionable activities” in the 2020 presidential election, an idea state Sen. Katrina Shealy, who represents the county, called “a waste of taxpayer money.”
“I mean, who else is going to pay for that?” Shealy asked . “I mean, we won three [state] Senate seats, we won two [state] House seats, we turned back over a [U.S.] congressional seat, and Trump won 55% in the state and 65% in Lexington County. What are we looking for?”
The county GOP said in the resolution that “voter rolls have not been sufficiently cleaned as required by law throughout the state, therefore, allowing for illegal votes via residency, citizens located on the death registry and other circumstances.”
