ATLANTA — Today, Stacey Abrams’ campaign for Governor released a statement addressing the false accusations against Stacey Abrams. Stacey Abrams is the only candidate in this race who believes in a fair election process and who has fought, throughout her career as a legislator, to protect the right to vote for every eligible Georgia voter:
“Brian Kemp knows full well that Stacey Abrams believes in and has fought consistently for the rights of legally registered Georgians to vote in our elections.
“Kemp is deliberately taking her comments out of context to hide his record of incompetence and distract from his efforts to make it harder for legally registered Georgians to vote, such as charging citizens with felonies for helping their blind relatives vote absentee, and creating barriers for rural Georgians by pushing precinct closures and consolidations,” said spokespe
“Dishonesty, incompetence and voter suppression have no place in the Secretary of State’s office, and Brian Kemp should resign immediately so that Georgians can be confident the election will be administered in a fair and competent manner.
“Furthermore, Brian Kemp is also trying to distract voters from the fact Abrams is the only candidate in this race who has both a record of protecting hard working Georgians from the largest tax increase on working families in state history and detailed plans to grow businesses throughout Georgia, create jobs, invest in K-12 education and expand access to healthcare.
“Kemp is running scared because he knows that Georgians are increasingly excited to vote for Stacey Abrams, and they aren’t going to let him steal this election or their futures.”
