Stacey Abrams Slams Brian Kemp’s ‘Desperate’ Hacking Claim Against Georgia Democrats

Stacey Abrams Slams Brian Kemp’s ‘Desperate’ Hacking Claim Against Georgia Democrats

Georgia Secretary of State spokeswoman Candice Broce declined to comment on the probe, but confirmed that the state Democratic Party was under investigation for "possible cyber crimes".

"To be very clear, Brian Kemp's scurrilous claims are 100 percent false, and this so-called investigation was unknown to the Democratic Party of Georgia until a campaign operative in Kemp's official office released a statement this morning", Rebecca DeHart, executive director of the Democratic Party of Georgia, said in a statement.

Oprah Winfrey has quashed rumours that she will make a bid for the USA presidency by telling voters at a rally in Georgia, "I don't want to run".

Georgia Secretary of State and Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp opened an investigation into the state's Democratic Party Sunday, alleging a failed attempt to hack the Georgia voter registration system.

The race between Kemp and Democrat Stacey Abrams, who is vying to become the nation's first black female governor, has become a flashpoint for allegations of voter suppression.

Noting that he heard Winfrey was in the Peach State, Pence said, "I got a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends: this ain't Hollywood". "I think if anything if just annoys people and it turns them off".

"I am an independent woman; I have earned the right to do exactly what I want to do when I want to do it".

"When you go to church on Sunday, tell people to go to the polls and vote", he said.

Vice President Mike Pence bit back at Hollywood's coming out to Georgia and pushing Abrams on voters.

"I am canvassing for Stacey Abrams", Winfrey said. "I'm not trying to test any waters", she said.

The robocall says it was paid for by the group Road to Power, which is an Idaho-based white supremacist group. "This is the South. People have been really wonderful and really optimistic about Stacey Abrams".

And someone out front was wearing a giant chicken suit holding a sign that reads "too chicken to debate", alluding to Kemp withdrawing from a debate scheduled Sunday in favor of appearing in Macon with President Donald Trump.

Interesting position, because local Republicans have, from time to time, touting a tax credit that has turned Georgia into a film-making force; the industry contributed an estimated $2.7 billion in direct spending in Georgia previous year, according to a report in the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
