RINO Philadelphia Election Official Al Schmidt was used by the media to defend the integrity of the 2020 election.
He was called out by Trump on Twitter after the election when Trump said Schmidt “is being used big time by the Fake News Media to explain how honest things were with respect to the Election in Philadelphia. He refuses to look at the mountain of corruption & dishonesty.”
He has now resigned.
Al Schmidt, the lone Republican on Philadelphia’s election board and one who staunchly defended the integrity of the 2020 presidential vote, will resign in January to take over as the next president and CEO of the good-government watchdog group The Committee of Seventy.
Schmidt, singled out by former President Donald Trump for attacks, said Tuesday that he decided to not seek a fourth four-year term after winning reelection in 2019. Trump’s attacks, and the threats from his followers that followed, did not drive the decision, he said.
Trump went after Schmidt anew on Tuesday after The Inquirer reported on Schmidt’s new job. In an email, Trump referred to Schmidt as a “RINO,” an insult that means Republican In Name Only, and said his departure from the election post was “great news.” Trump, who often issues several emails a day pushing false claims about the 2020 election, called Schmidt “a disaster on the massive election fraud and irregularities which took place in Philadelphia, one of the most corrupt election places in the United States.”
This comes as RINOs continue to flee the GOP after being exposed.
Trump responded on Twitter:
ICYMI: "The Republican Philly elections official who was the target of Trump’s attacks is resigning, sources say"
President Donald J. Trump:

“Great news—RINO Al Schmidt, who was a disaster on the massive election fraud and irregularities which took place in Philadelphia one of the most corrupt election places in the United States, is quitting. Going to a bad government group—I feel sorry for them—A really stupid hire! P.S. Does anybody really think the election in Philly was legit?”
