‘Give me something tangible’: Sec. of State challenges Culp to prove claims of voter fraud

With former gubernatorial candidate Loren Culp continuing to push claims of voter fraud in Washington, Secretary of State Kim Wyman is calling on him to produce whatever evidence he might have.

Loren Culp continues to threaten legal action over election results

In the weeks following the November election, Culp has been steadfast in his refusal to concede to incumbent Governor Jay Inslee, while alleging that his campaign has “a lot” of evidence proving that dead people voted and illegal immigrants received ballots. That said, he has repeatedly refused to release that supposed proof to the public, with his campaign manager Chris Gergen saying last week that they are “not going to adjudicate this in the court of public opinion.”

“For any of you people who are wanting me to just spill the beans and produce documentation, it’s not going to happen,” he said during a live video published to Facebook.

That’s a strategy Wyman has found challenging, given her central role in helping investigate any potential claims of voter fraud.

“That’s what’s been a little frustrating by all these allegations on social media over the past month — give me something tangible,” she told KTTH’s Jason Rantz. “Give me a name of a person with an affidavit that’s signed and said that they received a ballot that shouldn’t have. Give me a name of a person that’s deceased who had a ballot returned.”

“Without the data, it’s impossible to do an investigation,” she added.

Opinion: Culp, Trump show a refusal to accept reality in both Washingtons

With Wyman officially certifying the 2020 election earlier this week, she’s confident that there weren’t any significant instances of voter fraud in Washington this year. The state’s final vote tally saw incumbent Inslee best Culp by a 56.6% to 43.1% margin, with the two candidates separated by over 545,000 votes.

Even so, Gergen said last Friday that the Culp campaign intends to submit court filings for a lawsuit over those results, and that anyone who wants to see former Republic police chief’s evidence should “go to the courthouse” once that lawsuit is filed.

The campaign also plans to target a handful of counties for recounts based on what Gergen describes as “some squirrely things that we have found.” He expects those recount requests to be filed “this week and next.”
