"He can say whatever he wants to whenever he's behind bars," said Jake Glance, a spokesman for the Secretary of State's office.
Glance said Ramey's allegations are self-serving.
Ramey said in the filing that he took it upon himself to make sure thousands of deceased, non-resident or multiple-registered voters were purged from the Lincoln County voter rolls.
Tennant had been aware of the inflated rolls but failed to act, he alleged.
Glance said the office was aware of the problem but clearly acted to correct it.
"I think the fact that he's in prison right now shows we did take action," Glance said.
Ramey's case serves as a lesson "that if you commit election fraud while Natalie Tennant is Secretary of State, you're going to go to prison," Glance said.
