Democrat Stacey Abrams is running in the Georgia Gubernatorial race against Republican Brian Kemp. At a campaign rally last week, she said this:
“But the thing of it is, the blue wave is African-American. It’s white, it’s Latino, it’s Asian Pacific Islander. It is disabled. It is differently abled. It is LGBTQ. It is law enforcement. It is veterans. It is made up of those who are told they are not worthy of being here … those who are documented and undocumented.” Stacey Abrams
Documented, or LEGAL immigrants are welcome. Illegal ones are in violation of the law. It has nothing to do with being “worthy” or not worthy. She said it to the cheering crowd that was with her and Elizabeth Warren. Was that a slip of the tongue, or did she mean that undocumented immigrants will vote as part of the “blue wave?” Because that in itself is illegal, and is a violation of the law.
Ahead of the election, Abrams has ratcheted up her assertion Kemp is effectively suppressing minority and female voters in his role as Georgia’s secretary of state. At issue is Georgia’s so-called “exact match” voter registration law, which Kemp helped lobby Georgia’s GOP-run legislature to adopt.
The law requires information on a voter’s registration application to exactly match information on file with Georgia’s driver’s license agency of the Social Security Administration. Abrams argues, for instance, that women who have changed or hyphenated their names after being married could be tripped up.
Kemp called Abrams’ accusations a “smokescreen” and “distraction” in an attempt to “hide her radical views.”
Naturally Kemp seized on the moment to say that Stacey Abrams wants illegals to vote.
The Free Beacon reached out to her campaign for clarification of her remarks but never heard back. Fox has rated the Georgia gubernatorial race as a toss up.
Abrams is hoping to become the first black woman to be elected as Governor- and she has openly said that she doesn’t need “conservative values” to win Georgia. She has touted herself as a proud member of the “Resistance” to President Trump, according to the Free Beacon. She won the Democratic primary by a large margin on a progressive platform that included $15 per hour minimum wage and abortion “rights.”
