Stacey Abrams, Georgia’s Democratic nominee for governor, lashed out against Republican challenger Brian Kemp on Sunday over his office’s 11th-hour claim that Democrats had attempted to hack into the state’s voter registration system. The office of Georgia’s secretary of state announced Sunday ? just two days before the midterm elections ?
that it had opened an investigation a day earlier into the Democratic Party of Georgia over an unspecified alleged cyber attack. But Abrams brushed off the probe as Kemp’s “desperate attempt to turn the conversation away from his failures” as Georgia’s secretary of state in the lead up to the gubernatorial election on Tuesday. “I’ve heard nothing about it,” Abrams told CNN’s “State Of The Union” when asked about the investigation.
“My reaction would be that this is a desperate attempt on the part of my opponent to distract people from the fact that two different federal judges found him derelict in his duties and forced him to allow absentee ballots to be counted and those who are being held captive by the exact match system be allowed to vote.”
She continued: “He is desperate to turn the conversation away from his failures, from his refusal to honor his commitments, and from the fact that he is part of a nationwide system of voter suppression that will not work in this election because we’re going to outwork him, we’re going to outvote him, and we are going to win.”
