Why Did Stacey Abrams Campaign Withhold 19 Emails From Investigators?
The failed Stacey Abrams gubernatorial campaign in Georgia withheld nineteen emails from the Georgia Ethics Commission, which subpoenaed the campaign’s records.
WABE reported: “The subpoena says the campaign may have accepted donations from organizations exceeding the maximum contribution for a statewide election contest. The Abrams campaign sent more than 3,600 pages of financial records to state ethics officials. But it withheld nineteen emails, according to a letter attached to the campaign’s response to David Emadi, the executive secretary of the ethics commission hired in April. The subpoena asked for banking records beginning in May of 2018, as well as communications between the Abrams campaign and organizations that advocate for people of color and often encourage them to vote.”
Stacey Abrams’ overtime tactics to agitate for a post-Election Day win in Georgia probably form the blueprint for how Democrats are going to approach elections from now on. The campaign staged legal fights and Abrams even said that “democracy failed” in her losing speech.
False. Democracy succeeded.
Bombshell numbers out of Fulton County, Georgia show that a vast amount of the provisional ballots submitted in the Democrat stronghold were rejected.
Now, the Democrat Stacey Abrams campaign is pushing on Fulton County, running an entire campaign-style operation with phone banking, texts and email blasts to reach out to people who allegedly cast provisional ballots on Election Day.
Abrams’ search for provisional ballots may yield fruit, but her search for credible provisional ballots that can be counted in this election will prove futile. Why?
A full 1,811 provisional ballots in Fulton County were duplicates (49 percent), and 1,556 of them (42 percent of the total provisionals) were rejected.
Three of the individuals were not citizens, 581 were not registered to vote, and 972 did not live in that county.
