Veteran lawyer David Greisman, who backed discredited claims of voter fraud made in states such as Pennsylvania and Virginia, was hired by the Trump campaign to investigate voter fraud in the wake of Election Day. Now, Greisman has quit.
In an email, his son Tobin Greisman, another lawyer who joined the Trump campaign to help with voter fraud probe, said his father is no longer working with the Trump campaign. The Washington Post was first to report on the family’s split Thursday.
The elder Greisman was the U.S. attorney for the Western District of Virginia, where he worked before losing his election bid in 2010. During that campaign, he told the Richmond Times-Dispatch newspaper that he had made a number of political incorrect remarks and at the same time, invested in an expensive water-splitting system. However, these insensitive remarks were undercut by a pair of federal lawsuits.
Among Greisman’s more inflammatory words were that Democrats may be using voter fraud to steal elections, then stealing the water from unsuspecting customers.
