Al Schmidt: At the end of the day, we are counting eligible votes cast by voters. The controversy surrounding it is something I don’t understand. It’s people making accusations that we wouldn’t count those votes or people are adding fraudulent votes or just, coming up with, just, all sorts of crazy stuff.

Bill Whitaker: Accusations like, “You are cheating.”

Al Schmidt: Yes.

Bill Whitaker: “You are manipulating the vote.”

Al Schmidt: Yes. Or calls to our offices reminding us that “This is what the Second Amendment is for, people like us.”

Bill Whitaker: You’re getting calls like that?

Al Schmidt: Yes.

Bill Whitaker: That’s it that’s– a not so veiled death threat.

Al Schmidt: Yes, for counting votes in a democracy.
