Stacey Abrams will not admit defeat in the Georgia Gubernatorial election.
She’s been peddling one lie after another.
But now her shady behavior caught up with her and it’s going to blow up in her face.
Abrams has 30 lawyers working on a Hail Mary legal challenge.
She is citing an obscure Georgia statute that has never been used before to claim the entire election should be redone.
The Associated Press reports:
Stacey Abrams’ campaign is preparing an unprecedented legal challenge in the unresolved Georgia governor’s race that could leave the state’s Supreme Court deciding whether to force another round of voting.
The Democrat’s longshot strategy relies on a statute that’s never been used in such a high-stakes contest. It is being discussed as Georgia elections officials appear to be on the cusp of certifying Republican Brian Kemp as the winner of a bitterly fought campaign that’s been marred by charges of electoral malfeasance.
Top Abrams advisers outlined her prospective case to The Associated Press, stressing that the Democratic candidate hasn’t finalized a decision about whether to proceed once state officials certify Kemp as the victor. That could happen as early as Friday evening.
Allegra Lawrence-Hardy, Abrams’ campaign chairwoman, is overseeing a team of almost three-dozen lawyers who in the coming days will draft the petition, along with a ream of affidavits from voters and would-be voters who say they were disenfranchised. Abrams would then decide whether to go to court under a provision of Georgia election law that allows losing candidates to challenge results based on “misconduct, fraud or irregularities … sufficient to change or place in doubt the results.”
But some Democrats are furious with this decision.
They believe Abrams is taking away attention from Democrat John Barrow’s Secretary of State runoff that will take place in December.
Abrams is hogging all the attention and resources and leaving Democrats behind the eight ball in that key race.
