Stacey Abrams, Still Believing She Was Robbed of Election, Launches 'Fair Fight 2020'

Democrat Stacey Abrams ran an unsuccessful campaign for Georgia governor last year. If you ask her, it only failed because it was unfair. She and many of her supporters maintain that voter suppression stole the election out of her rightful hands.

The Republican prevailed with 1,978,408 votes over Abrams's 1,923,685 votes. But even with the 55,000-vote deficit, Abrams didn't concede. In fact, last April, she started claiming she'd won.

Kemp was also the secretary of state at the time of the election, and Abrams argued he should have resigned that post. Her group, Fair Fight, sued the state for what they said was “gross mismanagement" of an election that included far too many voting irregularities.

She's taken her grievance nationwide in a new effort to combat voter suppression. Fair Fight 2020, which she launched in Las Vegas this week, will be featured in 20 battleground states.

Kemp was also the secretary of state at the time of the election, and Abrams argued he should have resigned that post. Her group, Fair Fight, sued the state for what they said was “gross mismanagement" of an election that included far too many voting irregularities.

She's taken her grievance nationwide in a new effort to combat voter suppression. Fair Fight 2020, which she launched in Las Vegas this week, will be featured in 20 battleground states.

The program, Fair Fight 2020, is a multimillion-dollar effort to set up “voter protection” programs in a group of mostly battleground states. Abrams told the cheering audience that she will use her “very, very loud voice” through next year to promote the venture.

“My mission is to make sure that no one has to go through in 2020 what we had to go through in 2018,” she told an audience of hundreds at the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades convention at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

Abrams's new effort also confirms that she's not going to join the race for the White House. She was reportedly toying with the idea. But, her initiative does offer credence to reports that she's going to challenge Gov. Kemp again in 2022.

She also left open the possibility of accepting the eventual Democratic nominee's vice presidential ticket.

This woman seems to have a hefty following in the liberal community.

She could be a sizeable force in 2020. She’s probably on anyone’s short list for being the VP running mate. Vice presidential running mates often are NOT chosen from the also rans who ran in the primaries.

She could fill in some boxes on the Democrat checklist. She’s a woman. She’s black. She lost a close election, so she’s a “poster girl” for the voter suppression meme the liberals have been pushing. She’s from Georgia, a state the Democrats have dreams of tipping back to the Democrat column.

She’s the biggest sore loser who’s only purpose for the Democrat party is to get the African American vote out.

In her mind and from her point of view, she was. Her entire life up until then consisted of any thing she wished or desired being given to because she is Black. Specifically, a Female Black. Suddenly she has to follow rules.She experienced a tremendous shock. Her world collapses around her.

The cluelessness is astounding. This woman is probably second only to Cankles Herself in her ability to drive away anyone who is not already of the liberal progressive persauasion. She is totally unappealing and yet they keep pushing her front and center.

It’s as if the Republicans tried to tell the world that Alex Jones was the answer to all questions...

She is an absolutely disgusting, putrid, gross thing, living a life of delusion and grievance mongering.

This insufferable loser, announced she has decided to apply her caloric fueled energy to do what she's best at:
Whining and encouraging voter fraud (she calls it “voter suppression”). It seems every sicko Democrat
has an obsessive compulsive disorder with making sure all the dead and illegal aliens get to vote.

Abrams is (or was) a rising star in the Democratic Party once they got her up there with a 10 ton derrick. She gained
more weight AND (cough) a national following during her losing bid to become governor of Georgia last fall.

She even told Joe Biden to take a hike on naming her VP. Abrams said she was too important "to save Biden's ***."

What to do next? Abrams contemplated long and hard in between triple orders of Popeye's fried chicken,
orders of Taco Bell, and sides of Dominos extra large pizzas.

The Panthers wanted to recruit her---thinking she'd make a formidable defensive (cough) end......
running for president and the Senate (at the same time) was also considered.

Instead she's decided to go full-frontal virtue signalling: “My job is to be the voice to those who do not believe they are heard."

Heaven help us.

Rule of thumb:
When a democrat says “fair”, it means...cheat until it goes their way.
