I understand the meaning of the following sentence roughly, but not of 'spinning away'.
The president’s crew has spent a day spinning away undemocratic attempts to prevent thousands of votes from being tallied.
In my dictionary it means 'run' as an intransitive verb phrase like 'Time spins away' but this doesn't make sense in the above because of 'undemocratic attempts' which looks like an object of 'spinning off'. So I disassemble the sentence.
The president's crew has spent a day doing something.
The president's crew was spinning away undemocratic attempts.
If so does 'spin away' mean 'try something urgently' which is not in my any dictionaries?
