In Georgia, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is accusing her Republican opponent, Secretary of State Brian Kemp, of abusing his power with “cooked up” hacking accusations against her party. On Sunday, Kemp charged Democrats with hacking voter registration systems—but provided no evidence. The last-minute probe is widely seen as an attempt to derail the Abrams campaign by twisting a concerned voter’s complaint about alleged voting security issues, that was sent to the Democrats before they then sent it to voter protection. Voter protection is run by Brian Kemp, the Georgia Secretary of State and gubernatorial candidate challenging Stacey Abrams. This is Stacey Abrams.

Stacey Abrams: “Once again, for the third time, he has put our voters at risk, and he has refused to take responsibility. The first two times he blamed a vendor and an employee, and this time he’s blaming the Democratic Party. Brian Kemp has never once taken responsibility for his actions. And he should not get a promotion to a higher position, because he will constantly abuse that power, as well.”
