Womp, womp, WOMP! Stacy Abrams refuses to take the “L” that she received back in 2018 when she ran against Brian Kemp for governor of Georgia.
Abrams is being quite the sore loser, claiming that people in Georgia do not have the “right to vote” but rather the “opportunity to possibly think about maybe being able to participate in the right to vote.”
Oh puh-lease! As a Georgian, who now lives in Ohio, I can guarantee you that I never had a problem voting in the many years I lived there. Not once was I denied the opportunity to cast my ballot. She is simply in denial.
Abrams, who refused to concede to Brian Kemp and has been declaring to various audiences in recent months that she “won” the 2018 election, told the Democratic National Committee’s African-American Leadership Council Summit in Atlanta, Georgia, that “we will never know what could have been” because polling places were closed and voter rolls were purged.
“When 1.4 million Georgians get purged in one person’s administration, including 800,000 because they didn’t use a voluntary right, when one county can forget to send out 4,700 absentee ballots, when another county can have a rate of rejection that exceeds almost 10 percent, you don’t have the right to vote in the state of Georgia,” Abrams whined, “We have the opportunity to possibly think about maybe being able to participate in the right to vote in the state of Georgia. And what we found on that day in that election is that we don’t know the truth because there wasn’t a fair fight.”
Abrams praised Democrats for talking about voter suppression weeks after signaling that she will enter the race if Democrats are not speaking about issues—like voter suppression—that she thinks will be the most important for 2020
Just last month Abrams stated, “And whether we have 23, 24, 25, or 150 candidates for president, we should demand from every single person an adherence to the values that we hold to be true. They must speak about voter suppression every day until every person who is legally entitled to vote has the right to vote in the United States of America,” she added, “When we see our voters and we give them their voices, we will see the change we need in America, and we will survive for another generation.”
Abrams is still entertaining the idea of a presidential run for 2020. She believes that she has the potential to win if she joins the rat race later this year.
I’m calling it now, that if she does throw in her bid, she will lose even more sorely than in 2018.
