‘Absolute moron’: Rudy Giuliani slammed for spreading fake news about California's elections

Only days after Donald Trump stood trial for his lies about an election culminating in a violent insurrection at the U.S. capitol, his close ally Rudy Giuliani was ripped for spreading more election lies.

It started with a tweet from conservative actor Kevin Sorbo that falsely claimed there was not signature verification of ballots in the 2020 election. CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale pointed out that was false.

But that didn't stop Giuliani from spreading the conspiracy theory, for which he was harshly judged by his critics online.
