In yet another crippling blow to far-left Georgia gubernatorial hopeful Stacey Abrams, a group backed by her, Fair Fight Action, lost in court regarding her 2018 loss to GOP Gov. Brian Kemp. Obama-appointed U.S. District Judge Steve Jonesruled that  “although Georgia’s election system is not perfect, the challenged practices violate neither the Constitution nor the VRA (Voting Rights Act).”

Breitbart reports:

Fair Fight Action, an affiliate of the Abrams-founded PAC Fair Fight, claimed in its 2018 lawsuit numerous “serious and unconstitutional flaws in Georgia’s election process” related to absentee ballots, voter registration, and voter list management.

The group alleged certain voting practices in the state disenfranchised racial minorities, but many of the claims had already been thrown out over the last four years, including claims related to “long lines, voting machines, inadequate poll worker training, ballot rejections and large-scale voter registration cancellations,” the AJC noted.

One of the claims left hanging in the balance was that the state’s “exact match” voter registration policy disproportionately affected black voters. Jones shot that down, writing, “Here, plaintiffs have not provided direct evidence of a voter who was unable to vote, experienced longer wait times, was confused about voter registration status.”

The lawsuit followed Abrams delivering a notorious non-concession speech after her loss to Kemp in 2018, saying at the time that “the state failed its voters,” “democracy failed Georgia,” and “this is not a speech of concession because concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true or proper.” While Abrams acknowledged in the speech that Kemp would be certified governor, she accused him of suppressing votes to achieve his victory.

Kemp said following his legal victory that “from day one … used this lawsuit to line her pockets, sow distrust in our democratic institutions, and build her own celebrity.”

  1. You have got to be kidding me. Georgia election laws should mean a fair election. That’s all we ask. Voter ID! To hell with drop boxes. To hell with unsolicited absentee ballots. Vote the day of the election unless you have a legitimate reason not to.

  2. I use to live in Georgia and I can’t believe that the good people of Georgia have lost their senses to where they would actually vote for that radical to be their governor
