Stacey Abrams Under Investigation By State Ethics Commission

The Daily Caller

Excerpt:

The Georgia state ethics commission will subpoena bank records from Stacey Abrams’ 2018 gubernatorial campaign and several other groups that raised money to help her candidacy.

David Emadi, a former Douglas County prosecutor who became director of the state ethics commission Monday, announced on Thursday that he will soon subpoena Abrams’ gubernatorial campaign, various political action committees and special interest groups that supported her failed campaign, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“What I can say about the investigation into the Abrams campaign is in the relatively near future, I expect we will be issuing subpoenas for bank and finance records of both Miss Abrams and various PACs and special-interest groups that were affiliated with her campaign,” Emadi said to reporters on Thursday.

It’s not immediately clear what Abrams’ camp is being investigated for specifically, and the new director did not give many details on the matter. The ethics commission, known formally as the Georgia Government Transparency & Campaign Finance Commission, is tasked with collecting reports on lobbying expenditures, vendor grift and campaign finance. The Commission is also in charge of issuing penalties for any violations pertaining to these issues.

Abrams’ former campaign manager hit back hard against the announcement.

“This is Kemp’s corrupt playbook, his long history of launching frivolous investigations with bogus charges against political opponents,” Lauren Groh-Wargo said Thursday in a series of tweets, claiming Emadi to be a Kemp ally and the investigation a partisan hit job. “This is a shameful misuse of taxpayer dollars for a political vendetta. We will fight false accusations with every available resource.”

Because there were over a dozen “independent groups” in support of Abrams 2018 campaign, most of them funded by out-of-state donors, Emadi said the investigation will take time as the Commission meticulously reviews all of the reports.

News of the investigation comes as Abrams, the former Minority Leader of the Georgia House, mulls not only a 2020 Senate bid in Georgia, but also a possible run for the White House. Her failed gubernatorial campaign against now-Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp drew national attention, and she has remained in the national spotlight as she continues to claim, without evidence, that Kemp used his former position as Georgia Secretary of State to maliciously tilt the election in his favor.

Abrams is pissing away any good will she had coming out of the election. Heard a story last week that while Kemp’s numbers have gone up, hers have gone down.

This gapped tooth cow is now DOA. Which is good given what a sore loser she is.

I'd really prefer it if she just waddled back into obscurity. I was sick of her entitled bullschitt two minutes after learning of her existence. She's the very epitome of sore loser since she wonlost. :coffeenpc:

Quick, release the smokescreen: "This is racism, sexism, homophobia, etc!"

She's "considering" a run for POTUS, too? Seems like so are a number of Dems who've lost elections and are "between jobs."

The progressive/socialist long term plan to destroy constitutional government us well on its way. Soros is at the heart of it.
