Stacey Abrams Gets Another Devastating Loss After Refusing to Let Go of 2018 Loss
In life, there are winners and losers. One of these losers happens to be Stacey Abrams.
After Stacey Abrams was defeated in the race for governor of Georgia in 2018, she filed a lawsuit contesting Georgia’s election system. On September 30, 2018, a federal judge dismissed that complaint because it challenged Georgia’s election system.
The case, which was launched almost four years ago and intended to modify the way in which the state manages elections, was initially brought forward by Fair Fight Georgia, a political action committee that was founded by Abrams after she was defeated in her election bid. In the beginning of this year, the judge dismissed many of the lawsuit’s initial complaints, thereby narrowing the scope of the case.
It was suggested by Abrams that there was “misconduct, fr*ud, or irregularities” in the process of voting. She filed a lawsuit in an effort to prevent counties from discarding certain rejected provisional and absentee ballots after updated vote totals indicated that Republican Brian Kemp was likely to emerge victorious in the election.
“Although Georgia’s election system is not perfect, the challenged practices violate neither the constitution nor the [Voting Rights Amendment],” U.S. District Judge Steven Jones said in his ruling.
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who was the lead defendant in the case, hailed the ruling.
“This ruling allows local officials to focus on the task at hand this year—running a safe, secure, and accessible election,” he wrote on Twitter. “St0len election and voter suppression claims by Stacey Abrams were nothing but poll-tested rhetoric not supported by facts and evidence.”

Isn’t it funny how she can challenge something like this, but Republicans cannot? It’s an attempt to overthrow democracy if a Republican does it, but if a Democrat does it, it’s justified and only makes sense because it’s “true”.
