One of the biggest names in Democrat Party politics could be about to jump in to the presidential contest.
But now, those plans are in major jeopardy.
That’s because this top Democrat is sweating bullets over one serious investigation.
“Socialist” Stacey Abrams – the failed 2018 Georgia gubernatorial candidate – is heavily rumored to make a presidential campaign announcement.
Abrams became a left-wing folk hero in 2018 for supporting reparations for slavery, confiscating firearms, and declaring that illegal aliens would make up part of the pending “blue wave.”
The fake news also fell in love with her story of trying to become the first black female governor in American history.
But her presidential ambitions could be over before her campaign even starts.
That’s because the Georgia State ethics commission announced it intended to subpoena her campaign bank account.
The Daily Caller reports:
An attorney for Stacey Abrams says the failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate has “nothing to hide” after the state ethics commission announced it would subpoena her campaign’s bank records.
Joyce Gist Lewis told the Georgia ethics commission on Monday that her client is prepared to cooperate with an investigation into her 2018 campaign for governor, according to a letter obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The letter, delivered to commission director David Emadi, said Abrams was “surprised” to first learn of the investigation through a media announcement.
“Assuming that you are willing to articulate the good faith reasons for the records sought, my client will offer its full cooperation without the need to resort to a subpoena,” Lewis wrote. “Should any technical reporting errors be identified by your office, my client will promptly amend its reports, as is routine for campaign committees in the State of Georgia.”
The letter comes after Emadi, the director of the state ethics commission, announced on Thursday that he would soon subpoena Abrams gubernatorial campaign, along with other political action committees and special interest groups that supported her failed bid for office.
This announcement came on the heels of an ethics complaint about the spending and political activities of the nonprofit 501(c)(4) group Abrams formed that critics believe violates the law by promoting Abrams’ political career.
The taint of the scandal could drain the air from an Abrams presidential campaign as it would launch under a cloud of controversy that would follow her as long as the investigation persists.
