Trump targets Philadelphia GOP commissioner baffled by election fraud claims – By Seth McLaughlin (The Washington Times) / Nov 11 2020
President Trump is taking aim at a Republican city commissioner in Philadelphia who is slapping down allegations of widespread voter fraud in the City of Brotherly Love.
Al Schmidt says he is dumbfounded by the baseless accusations and rumors that have been circulated about the election results.
“I have seen the most fantastical things on social media, making completely ridiculous allegations that have no basis in fact at all and see them spread,” Mr. Schmidt told CNN’s John Berman on “New Day” Wednesday.
Mr. Trump fired back on Twitter, claiming Mr. Schmidt is turning a blind eye to election problems.
“A guy named Al Schmidt, a Philadelphia Commissioner and so-called Republican (RINO), is being used big time by the Fake News Media to explain how honest things were with respect to the Election in Philadelphia,” Mr. Trump said Wednesday. “He refuses to look at a mountain of corruption & dishonesty. We win!”
