Failed gubernatorial candidate and community organizer Stacey Abrams told CNN’s Jake Tapper that Democrat’s are going to flip the Senate. The problem is the stats she using are causing some to scratch their heads.
Anchor Tapper said, “Democrats have won just one of the eight statewide runoff elections held in Georgia since 1988. Some Republicans are worried that President Trump’s continued baseless claims of a rigged election might discourage their voters from showing up this time. Do you think that is real or Democratic wishful thinking?”
Abrams said, “Democrats are prepared to win this election. This is the first runoff where we have the level of investment and engagement that it takes to win a runoff. We know from the numbers we are in a good place. 1.2 million absentee ballots have been requested thus far, and just to put that into context, 1.3 million were requested for all of the general election. Of that 1.2 million, 85,000 of those applications are from voters who does not vote in the general election and disproportionately between 18 and 29 and disproportionately people of color. That signals that we understand that we may need to make a plan to vote and deliver this election.”
She added, “What Donald Trump is doing, the disinformation is deeply problematic. I don’t know if he is going to help our harm his team. But we know that on our side of the conversation, we are pushing for leaders who will actually do the work of delivering COVID relief to Georgia.”
Believe it or not, Georgia Secretary of STate Brad Raffensperger is investgating voter fraud from the group Stacey Abrams founded.
The investgation was opened after flyers on how to sign up and vote out of state in the Georgia Run-off were mailed to residents in New York City.
Raffensperger told reporters his office has ”
received specific evidence that these groups have solicited voter registrations from ineligible individuals who have passed away or live out of state.”
“I will investigate these claims thoroughly and take action against anyone attempting to undermine our elections,” he vowed.
If this investigaiton is anything like Raffensperger’s other investigations, we are doomed.
