yet she's still a loser. hahahahahaaazaaaa
Really? That's the best you have?

So are you ok with voter suppression?

You don't like that we still have courts in this country to combat those kinds of things?

Why is the GOP so afraid of everyone voting?

That's nice. Abrams still lost by over 50,000 votes.
And???

You are ok with voter suppression too?

BTW, new lawsuit filed, judge gave it the ok. There were a lot of problems in Georgia on the day of the election


The 66-page lawsuit highlights voting issues that affected the state including voter purges, registration applications put on hold, Election Day troubles at predominantly nonwhite voting precincts, and problems with voters’ absentee and provisional ballots.

Each of these issues fueled their own series of lawsuits (several of them successful) in the weeks before and after the election, but this latest lawsuit cites them collectively to make a larger point: Georgia’s current election system created an unconstitutional series of obstacles that are disproportionately likely to disadvantage, and in some cases completely disenfranchise, voters of color.

To resolve this, the plaintiffs propose a number of reforms, including ending the use of electronic voting machines without a paper trail and stopping purges of infrequent voters, and asks that these changes be implemented prior to the 2020 election. The suit also requests that Georgia be placed


In the weeks before the election, Kemp was repeatedly criticized for measures taken by his office, including voter purges that removed more than a million names from the state’s voter rolls between 2012 and 2016. He has also faced several complaints and lawsuits alleging that he was suppressing minority voters, particularly black voters, in an effort to keep Abrams from winning the election.

Nice to see you buying into conspiracy theories now.

What conspiracy are you talking about?

Pretty sure NPR is an accurate source




Tens of thousands of Georgians who haven't voted in recent elections may show up at the polls on Nov. 6, only to learn they are no longer registered to vote and cannot cast a ballot.

In July 2017, more than half a million people were removed from Georgia's voter rolls. Of those, 107,000 were purged because they had decided not to vote in previous elections and they failed to respond to mailed notices from the state.

That's according to an investigation from APM Reports, the podcast and radio show Reveal, and public radio station WABE.

The purge was overseen by Secretary of State Brian Kemp, a Republican candidate for governor, months after he declared his intentions to run for higher office. Kemp is one of three secretaries of state who are refereeing their own elections this year.

6 Takeaways From Georgia's 'Use It Or Lose It' Voter Purge Investigation

And you don't see a huge conflict of interest with Kemp being SOS, in charge of voter laws, WHILE he was running for governor?

That's just crazy.

Georgia voter turnout in 2018 was 3.9 million. The last midterm it was 2.5 million. If someone was trying to suppress the vote in Georgia, they were doing a terrible job. Abrams is either the sorest loser in election history or she is mentally ill. Either way, the facts do not support her little conspiracy theories no matter how much the shill media likes to indulge her.

From my NPR link

4. Lawsuits and "voter suppression tactics"

In the last two weeks, four voting rights lawsuits were filed in Georgia. An APM Reports analysis found only Texas has seen more federal voting rights lawsuits filed against state officials since 2011. This year the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, a federal agency, studied voter suppression tactics including voter ID laws, proof of citizenship requirements, purges, cuts in early voting, and polling place closings. Georgia is the only state once under federal oversight to have adopted all five.



5. Absentee ballot rejections

Early voting has spiked around the country as Election Day nears. There are concerns over the number of absentee ballots being rejected by Gwinnett County in suburban Atlanta, the only jurisdiction in the state that is federally required to provide ballots in English as well as Spanish. The county has tossed out hundreds of absentee ballots over signatures that don't match or for missing birth dates. Gwinnett officials say the county is following the law. A pair of federal lawsuits will be in court on Tuesday.
