ATL Journal Constitution: Broad Georgia ethics probe targets Abrams -- and her backers


damn it.

https://www.ajc.com/news/state--regional-govt--politics/broad-georgia-ethics-probe-targets-abrams-and-her-backers/NBT2JDLOZqDgUq1vTz4xOO/?utm_source=newspaper&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=8416631&ecmp=newspaper_email&

The head of Georgiaís ethics commission has filed a spate of subpoenas targeting groups led by Stacey Abrams and the chairwoman of the state Democratic Party, prompting criticism that heís trying to exact political revenge against Republican Gov. Brian Kempís political opponents.


The subpoenas obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution were filed on April 26 by new ethics chief David Emadi and seek extensive financial, bank and payroll records from the Abramsí campaign, which raised roughly $30 million in last yearís race against Kemp.

The ethics office also wants all correspondence between the Abrams campaign and a constellation of left-leaning groups that registered and mobilized voters, many with a focus on energizing minorities. They include the voting rights group Abrams helped launch and a nonprofit co-founded by state Sen. Nikema Williams, the new leader of the state Democratic Party.

In the documents, Emadi reveals that investigators intend to present evidence that the Abrams campaign accepted donations from four of the groups that exceeded maximum contribution limits for a statewide campaign.

7. KKKemp actually won by roughly 55,000 votes. Still more work to do in Georgia until the rubes

die off.

10. Got it, I'm thinking of the Run Off vote not the end count. It would've been a run off if Kemp would

... not have cheated and knocked off 13000 + mostly democratic votes.

5. Can you believe it....

She mobilized all those uppity people to vote for her and raised all that money and the lovely repubs are going to investigate how she did to make sure nobody can do it again...

The winners write the history or in the case of Georgia, the cheaters write the history

6. Is this a trial test to see if Kemp can do it in Georgia, then Donald

can do it at the federal level?

8. Gosh, aren't the Republicans worried about overplaying their hand and turning off swing voters?

Correct, gratuitous. You have control of the board.
