Abrams campaign preps lawsuit over Dougherty County absentee ballots

Love Stacey, but this lawsuit seems a little desperate.

Yes. By my calculation that county had around 3-5,000 less votes than it did in 2016 while most counties had more. So they’re probably on the right track but it’s not enough to matter

It's over, looks like she lost. If she wants to preserve her dignity she won't drag this out endlessly.

This isn't just about winning, it's about protecting the right to vote in Georgia. Kemp didn't do that this election. I'm tired of the bs this state pulls when it comes to elections. There's no reason counties are given such low funding and resources when it comes to staffing and machinery. We need to hold Kemp and his office accountable for once. Whether Stacy wins or not isn't as important in the grand scheme of things, the integrity of our voting system in Georgia is more important in the long run.

I understand fighting based on principle of making elections more fair, but I think there are more effective ways of doing that. She could pour a bunch of time on a money in a lawsuit that seems doomed from the start...or she could put her all into helping get John Barrow elected as Secretary of State in the runoff. 2020 is right around the corner and with Barrow as SOS it's going to be much easier for GA Dems.

I think Barrow will win at this point anyway as republicans won’t really feel as much a need to turnout

“Some residents of Dougherty County, which includes the city of Albany, requested ballots by mail and never received them, Kastorf said. Others received them too close to the election and weren’t given enough time to fill out and return ballots by the state’s deadline, he said.

The lawsuit will ask the courts to require that these ballots be counted, even if they were received late.”

If “some” means thousands, then this could change the result and therefore is a valid position. Roughly 30,000 people voted in Dougherty and 70% voted for her, so they believe there is some “there there”.

At the same time, the voting booths are open from 7am until the last person leaves if you got in before they closed. If I didn’t get my ballot in time by mail due to whatever reason I would go vote in person.

Asking for all votes to be counted? Sure. Asking for money to be donated to your campaign while you do it? Odd.

It's definitely a slippery slope she's going down.

I can hear the Fox News and conservative radio pundits spinning this now to further rile up Kemp's base.

If she doesn’t win what has she got to lose? She’s got a ton of personal debt and no political future. Would anyone even remember her in 2022?

If she plays the “stolen election” card she might get sympathy and some GoFundMe money.

She just looks pathetic at this point. The race is over and she lost. She should concede with dignity and grace. The stunt she is pulling now is the reason liberals have been losing for awhile now.
