  • Manchin backs election bill show-vote after Stacey Abrams’ support for voter ID

    Sen. Joe Manchin on Tuesday said he will support a Democratic show-vote on an election reform bill after getting fellow Democrats including Stacey Abrams to voice support for voter ID rules that they had previously denounced as racist. The vote will fail and a final bill wasn’t even drafted ahead of a doomed 5 p.m. motion to invoke cloture, which requires 60 senators to agree to proceed. Democrats hold just 50 seats and the only major unknown was whether they would stick together in the base-rallying gesture designed to show pushback on Republican state election reforms that President Biden claims...

    “We need a Stacey Abrams in every state,” declared left-wing documentary filmmaker Michael Moore on his podcast, Rumble, during an interview with fellow leftist filmmaker Raoul Peck about the latter’s most recent TV series, Exterminate all the Brutes. Peck praised Abrams as a political pioneer in combating what he described as an American “machine” built on “genocide” and “slavery.”

    Three romance novels that Stacey Abrams penned almost two decades ago will soon be hitting bookshelves once again. The trio of titles by the Georgia Democrat and voting rights activist will be reissued by Berkley in 2022, the publisher announced Tuesday. The book series, which includes the titles "Rules of Engagement," "Power of Persuasion" and "The Art of Desire," were written under Abrams's pen name, Selena Montgomery. Abrams, 47, called her first novels "incredibly special" to her. "The characters and their adventures are what I'd wished to read as a young Black woman - stories that showcase women of color...

    Democrats and the CEOs of several prominent corporations slammed legislatures for passing reforms of state election procedures. Georgia’s 2020 election procedures created significant ambiguities and inconsistencies in how ballots were cast and counted. The legislature enacted some reforms and Gov. Brian Kemp signed the legislation last week. Stacey Abrams, self-proclaimed “real governor of Georgia,” characterized the reforms as “vote suppression.” President Joe Biden called the reform “Jim Crow on steroids.” Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey asserted that “this legislation is unacceptable.” Apple CEO Tim Cook complained that the new law “makes it more difficult for people to vote.” Kemp defended the...

    On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) said that no one thinks Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) “did not steal the election fair and square from Stacey Abrams.” Clyburn said, “Nobody believes that he did not steal the election fair and square from Stacey Abrams. And what he’s doing now is codifying that which he used his administrative authority to do when he was secretary of state, when he took so many people off the roll. And I guarantee you that was the difference in his having won that election and having stolen it...

    On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” Rep. and Georgia Democratic Party Chairwoman Nikema Williams (D-GA) stated that the 2018 Georgia governor’s race was “stolen” from Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams. Williams discussed the arrest of Georgia State Rep. Park Cannon (D) on Thursday and Williams’ own arrest at the state Capitol earlier. She said, “I mean, it was the aftermath of the election being stolen from Stacey Abrams, that I was escorted out of the Capitol as a sitting state senator while my constituents were there protesting in the rotunda, their civic right to do.”

    Failed Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said Monday on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” that Democrats were “at war” with state Republicans lawmakers forwarding bills addressing voting and members of Congress who do not support the Democrats voting legislation. Abrams said, “We are seeing it play out in the most grotesque way possible because across the country, in 40 legislative bodies, we are watching attempts to roll back the right to vote. Because to put it simply, Republicans believe too many people voted. They believe too many eligible voters chose other than their candidates, and because of that, they’re going...

    The Georgia State Election Board voted unanimously Wednesday to move forward with an investigation of U. S. Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) for his role serving as board chairman of a voter registration organization founded by Stacey Abrams that election officials say failed to follow deadlines, in what appears to be the latest legal step in the ongoing feud between the progressive Abrams and the state’s Republican election officials. Warnock served as chairman of the board for the New Georgia Project in 2019 when election officials claim misconduct took place. Under Georgia election rules, voting registration organizations like the New Georgia...

The school announced Thursday morning that Chris Malone had been fired after a Tuesday night tweet calling Abrams “Fat Albert” along with other insults because of the results of Georgia’s Senate elections. There is absolutely no evidence that any significant voter fraud took place in Georgia in either November or January.

David Perdue Wednesday morning in the second of the Senate runoff races in Georgia — despite the election not yet being formally called. “I thank the people of Georgia for electing me to serve you in the United States Senate, thank you for the confidence and trust that you have placed in me,” Ossoff said in a video on YouTube. Perdue has yet to concede.

    Stacey Abrams on a Monday night episode of "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" expressed her confidence in Democrats ahead of the Georgia runoff elections. During her appearance on the show, the former Democratic gubernatorial candidate discussed mobilizing voters as well as her belief that Democrats Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock will secure a victory against Republican David Perdue — whose Senate term ended Sunday — and Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) in Georgia's Senate runoff elections on Tuesday. “I think we’re ready to get it done,” Abrams said. “I put my money on blue.” Abrams told Colbert that she...

    Stacey Abrams, the failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate (who still hasn’t conceded her 2018 defeat to Brian Kemp) expects Democrats Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock to win both Georgia Senate runoff elections. “I think we’re ready to get it done,” Abrams told Stephen Colbert Monday night. “I put my money on blue.” Why is she so confident? I have a hunch. Abrams was also on MSNBC Monday night, and couldn’t help patting herself on the back for getting rid of exact-match signature verification on ballots—a provision meant to verify that the voters who cast the ballots are actually the individuals...
