Stacey Abrams Sues Georgia Over, In Part, a Law She Sponsored

Abrams, in her lawsuit, is aggrieved that Georgia curtailed the period for early voting. She sponsored the change.

Stacey Abrams has filed her lawsuit against Georgia. She makes a serious mistake of conflating state decision making with local decision making and she casts some pretty innocuous decisions in the worst possible light, which is to be expected. For example, she laments proposed poll closings in Randolph County, Georgia, which she says was done by a consultant at the behest of the Secretary of State.

What she leaves out is that the Secretary of State's guidance was on Americans With Disabilities Act compliance, the precincts to be closed did not comply, and they were all the predominately Republican precincts. But we should not let facts get in the way of a good story.

What is even more humorous is paragraph 18 of her lawsuit, in which she decries "cuts to early voting." Abrams alleges the state curtailed the duration of early voting in Georgia, which made it more difficult for people. But Abrams actually co-sponsored that legislation. She did not just vote for it, but actively added her signature as a sponsor.

Now she is suing, in part, because of legislation she sponsored.

Love to know what position Abrams has with the Fair Fight Georgia PAC. Also, what is her salary with the organization. A look at https://www.fairfightgeorgia.com tells us nothing about the organization or the individuals behind it. Of course, it does ask for contributions. Let's see what further grift Abrams can soak out of her supporters.

Did you expect anything different. If you did then Lucy has a football for you to kick. I 'll just say it they will do anything to promote their power over everyone else. Nothing else matters Imagining they have some principles is naive at this point.
