Now defeated Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams claims that democracy failed and that there was “systematic disenfranchisement” toward voters in the Peach State.
Of course, when asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper, she could not produce evidence to back up her claims.
Jake Tapper: “Do you think there was deliberate interference in the election?”
Stacey Abrams says without evidence: “Yes … There was a deliberate and intentional disinvestment and I think destruction of the admin of elections in the state of Georgia.” pic.twitter.com/82Ei36LYRm

Instead, she points to poor funding and training for polling workers and says there was a “deliberate and intentional disinvestment and destruction of the administration of elections in the State of Georgia.”

While it wasn’t a landslide, Brian Kemp did end up winning the election (after much contesting by Abrams and recounting) with more than 50 percent of the vote.

Good thing Democratic presidential losers don’t do similar things, like blaming the fact that one didn’t visit a key midwestern state on infiltration by a government in another hemisphere.

And remember that time when candidate Donald Trump threatening to contest the results of an election was an unsurvivable threat to our republic?

Abrams also said she intends to continue running for office in some capacity … after taking a nap.
