The Democrat Stacey Abrams campaign is legally agitating for a whole new vote in Georgia, as Republican winner Brian Kemp performs the daily duties of the governor-elect in transition.
Gwinnett County — a focus of the Abrams legal team’s efforts — finally certified its vote Thursday night during a divisive session at the election board, which prompted the police to be called.
Abrams trails far behind Kemp in the vote count, but the Hillary Clinton prototype is hiring lawyers to stretch out their increasingly inane lawsuit strategy to get more rejected ballots onto the record. (READ: Fulton County Numbers Show Non-Citizens and Non-Registered Persons Voting).
“The Democrat’s longshot strategy relies on a statute that’s never been used in such a high-stakes contest. It is being discussed as Georgia elections officials appear to be on the cusp of certifying Republican Brian Kemp as the winner of a bitterly fought campaign that’s been marred by charges of electoral malfeasance.
Top Abrams advisers outlined her prospective case to The Associated Press, stressing that the Democratic candidate hasn’t finalized a decision about whether to proceed once state officials certify Kemp as the victor. That could happen as early as Friday evening.
Allegra Lawrence-Hardy, Abrams’ campaign chairwoman, is overseeing a team of almost three-dozen lawyers who in the coming days will draft the petition, along with a ream of affidavits from voters and would-be voters who say they were disenfranchised. Abrams would then decide whether to go to court under a provision of Georgia election law that allows losing candidates to challenge results based on “misconduct, fraud or irregularities … sufficient to change or place in doubt the results.'”
Associated Press passage ends
The Georgia Republican Party is joining the Secretary of State’s office in trying to finally put an end to the vote-finding madness that has dragged out the state’s election for governor — even though Democrat Stacey Abrams has no statistical possibility of winning or triggering a recount against Republican Governor-elect Brian Kemp.
The Georgia GOP is counter-suing the Georgia Democrats, who are trying to squeeze in some more absentee ballots despite many provisional ballots being rejected because they were submitted by non-citizens or non-registered persons.
So the Republicans are now back on offense.
WMAZ reports: “The laws they are now challenging were the same laws they have had not (an) issue following for the last 16 years and the same laws under which Abrams won her primary election in May 2018,” the Republican Party said in a release on Tuesday. Republican Party chairman John Watson issued a response to the Democratic Party’s actions.
“The Democrats didn’t win on Election Day, and they won’t manufacture a win in the courtroom. The latest Democratic lawsuit is not an effort to ‘protect democracy,’ but an eleventh-hour attempt to silence the voices of almost 2 million Georgians who chose Brian Kemp to be their next Governor,” Watson said. “As the Democrats continue fundraising off of a fake crisis, the math in this election continues to be clear: even if 100 percent of the outstanding ballots were valid and in her favor, Stacey Abrams will not have the votes to trigger a run-off or recount.”
The countersuit insists the burden placed on all of Georgia’s 159 counties is extraordinary and extreme. Additionally, the GOP says that current law already has not shown that any change in the election will occur as a result of any change resulting from any lawsuit.”

Republican Brian Kemp’s supporters turned up in full force at the Gwinnett County election board hearing Tuesday, where they were met with resistance from proponents of Democrat Stacey Abrams’ bid to drag out and delay the vote counting.
The Gwinnett County board ruled that the county must certify its vote count on Thursday, following a Democrat donor judge’s ruling Tuesday morning that votes have to be counted even if the voter registrant does not have a listed birth year. Another Abrams campaign and Democrat lawsuit seeks to allow votes from non-county residents in Gwinnett and DeKalb counties.

With no statistical chance of winning or forcing a recount, the Georgia Democrats are pushing a campaign-style “Make Georgia Count” initiative replete with phone banking, emails, texts, and even a video ad, clearly hoping to win some court precedents that they can use to legitimize problematic votes in future elections.
The Kemp supporters got there early, holding their “Stop The Fraud” signs as early as 1 PM, while the Democrats got to the office closer to 2 pm and mobbed up the event, according to sources on the ground.
“It’s time to take the fight to these groups,” tea party leader Debbie Dooley told Big League Politics, referring to the left-wing activists. Dooley said that when she was challenged on the definition of voter fraud, she pulled the definition right up on her phone.
BABY: CNN’s Brian Stelter Becomes Early Adapter of New Twitter ‘Disable Replies’ Feature
The mainstream media operative doesn’t want feedback.
CNN presenter Brian Stelter has become a quick adopter of a new Twitter feature that enables users to shut down replies to their tweets, essentially cutting off any potential for negative feedback and allowing unpopular verified journalists to propagate their own echo chambers.
The feature was implemented on Thursday by Twitter, and was roundly criticized by many of the platform’s users as a betrayal of the free-speech and democratic ideals the website originally stood for. The feature essentially allows verified and artificially promoted mainstream media personalities to escape criticism for dishonest reporting, lies, and political bias.
Stelter utilized the feature in a tweet about business challenges to the model of traditional print and local media. It would’ve gone without saying that his narrative would’ve been challenged by many Twitter users keen to point out that the erosion of traditional print media has coincided with rampant left-wing and institutional bias within the industry.

Replies to the tweet are disabled, but many users found a way to ensure that Stelter’s lightweight media proclivities were responded to in kind by those who are critical of cable mainstream media. Users who Stelter follows are able to reply to the tweet, and some who he deems acceptable within his own echo chamber were keen to call him out.
Is this the kind of "news" that needs to be saved? This looks like state TV to me. (P.S. why do you have the comments restricted? Can't take criticism?)https://t.co/LyzHr811jh

It’s almost certain that CNN hacks such as Stelter will continue to use the anti-democratic and elitist feature, hoping to shield themselves from accusations of dishonesty.
We’ve entered a new dark age of the internet where the original late 1990’s principles of free expression, intellectual curiosity, and open dialogue are being eroded by political and media elites terrified that their neoliberal vision for society is quickly becoming discredited. The ‘disable replies’ feature on Twitter is merely the latest indicator of such a phenomenon, but self-proclaimed ‘objective journalists’ such as Stelter might not prove as able to shut down criticism of themselves as they might hope.
