Travis Tritt has never been shy about expressing his political opinions.
The ’90s country superstar is an outspoken conservative, and one of the few country stars who doesn’t really seem to be afraid to wade into politics.
He was quick to condemn Bud Light over their ad campaign featuring transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney, and has remained outspoken about his support for Donald Trump since the 2020 election.
But Tritt is raising some eyebrows with his latest claims.
On Truth Social, the Twitter alternative owned by Donald Trump, Tritt seemed to imply that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp benefited personally from the state’s deal with Dominion Voting Systems, the company that provides voting machines and came under fire from President Trump and his supporters for claims of election fraud during the 2020 election.
Dominion has since filed numerous lawsuits over those claims, including one against Fox News that settled just before trial with Fox agreeing to pay Dominion $787 million.
In his post, Tritt, who is a Georgia native, says that he has confidential sources in the state who told him that Kemp was in deep personal debt when he was elected governor of Georgia, but that after signing the deal between the state of Georgia and Dominion, Kemp has no longer been in debt.
“I have confidential sources in Georgia who’ve told me that Brian Kemp was over $7 million in debt when he was elected as Georgia’s governor in 2018. In 2019, Kemp cut a deal with the state of Georgia to select Dominion Voting Systems to provide its new statewide voting system beginning in 2020. My sources tell me that Kemp has never been in debt since that deal was done. Connect the dots.”
