"A complaint filed Wednesday to the Senate Select Committee on Ethics asks the panel to investigate Graham's phone call with Raffensperger, whether Graham suggested not counting all legal votes and whether he had threatened election officials, who are in the midst of a recount, with a Senate investigation.

The complaint was filed by Walter Shaub, a former top ethics watchdog for the federal government under President Barack Obama; Richard Painter, the top ethics lawyer under President George W. Bush; and Claire Finkelstein, who heads the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Ethics and the Rule of Law.

"If these allegations are true, Senator Graham's conduct constitutes an abuse of office and conduct unbecoming of a senator," the complaint states."

But questions have been raised about Graham's contacts with election officials in other states. He has donated $500,000 to the president's legal efforts, where Trump and his campaign have argued baseless accusations of voter fraud in multiple states where Trump lost to Biden."

'What We in the Legal World Call a Felony': Lawyers Condemn Lindsey Graham, Call for DOJ and Senate Investigations

...On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Graham and Raffensperger actually spoke twice on the phone"on the same day. The request to toss ballots "from counties with higher rates of signature errors" reportedly occurred during the second call. And there was a witness during the call in question....

That begs the question, why were there two calls?

After the first, failed, effort.

Trump was probably insistent Lady G try again.

Maybe sweeten the deal with the offer of a back rub or foot massage.

@#5 ... Trump was probably insistent Lady G try again. ...

I was going to ask who did Sen Graham talk with between the two calls.

My guess is similar to yours - Pres Trump or his campaign.

Might also explain why Georgia SoS Raffensperger had a witness on the second call.
