Federal Judge Orders Special Committee to Stop Raising Funds for Kemp

Federal Judge Mark Cohen ruled that a special committee associated with Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp must suspend fundraising until after the state primary. The judge, appointed by President Barack Obama, said Georgians First, cannot raise money until a GOP gubernatorial candidate is decided

Fox News reports:

The law allows the governor and lieutenant governor, opposing major party nominees, and both party caucuses in the state House and Senate to form leadership committees. Donors can give as much as they want, while they can’t directly give candidates for statewide office more than $7,600 for a primary or general election and $4,500 for a runoff election.

Abrams’ campaign asked the judge last week to shut down unlimited contributions to Kemp’s committee. Cohen had earlier denied Abrams’ request to start taking unlimited amounts before she is all but expected to clinch the Democratic nomination on May 24.

“We are pleased the Court both recognized and offered a remedy today for the unconstitutional fundraising advantage Brian Kemp signed into law benefiting himself,” Abrams’ campaign said in a statement sent to Fox News.

“After months and months of Brian Kemp having exclusive ability to raise unlimited funds as a result of the bill he signed, Kemp will no longer be able to raise these funds while Stacey Abrams and One Georgia are denied equal ability to operate under the same rules.”

Perdue previously sued over the law because it was unfair that Kemp could raise and spend unlimited sums in the Republican primary while Perdue could not.

Write a complaint to the federal bar judicial ethics committee, looking toward removal of Justice Mark Cohen from the bench for interference with an election and bias.

It indicates who Abrams is concerned with the most it is not her trustee Kemp.

Buuuuut Abrams was allowed to stuff ballot boxes in 2020 helping steal the presidential election, and Facebook fucboi was allowed to throw millions into the same stolen election, Georgians dont want commies in our state much less running it into the ground d as they have other leftist controlled states. It’s time to take our country back and correct the many wrongs we’ve endured at the hands of these socialist scumbags, enough is enough.

Abrahams is still in denial regarding her loss to Kemp as Governor. She is nuts.
