It wasn’t bad enough that Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown stood up on a stage today and pre-emptively accused the GOP of stealing Stacey Abrams’ victory out from under her.
Abrams’ staff is running with it, too. Full-steam ahead:

More from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
“In a regular campaign, the Secretary of State’s office would be working with our team. That’s why it’s so incredible that he didn’t resign,” said Abrams campaign manager Lauren Groh-Wargo of Kemp, who only stepped down two days after the election. “We were raising the alarm bells left and right.”
She accused Kemp of using the office, which oversees the election, as a political arm of the campaign and hinted at a potential lawsuit focused on that claim.
“Let me say, unequivocally, that Brian Kemp mismanaged the election to sway it in his favor,” she said. “He’s been the secretary of suppression.”
Does she have evidence? Nope. But apparently evidence isn’t necessary when you’re a Democrat accusing a Republican of foul play.
A fact-free, reckless, and irresponsible claim.
Stacey only likes to register new voters and encourage faith in elections as long as she thinks she is winning. As soon as she has lost, she moves immediately to discouraging faith in our elections. https://t.co/4zByuhDhBs

The stacey campaign and the GA democrats are acting like literal children. Throwing a temper tantrum because, no matter how many democrat federal judges they find to "intervene" and bend state laws in their favor, they STILL couldn't "find" enough votes to win. Pathetic.
