I agree. Retaliation. Not sure when the change will get here though. I think it depends on 2020. 2020 will be close again, but if Trump wins a 2nd term, the backlash by 2024 will lead to a Democratic landslide nationwide much like 2008 after 8 years of Republican control. If Dems win the Presidency in 2020, change in places like Georgia will be slower. Either way, the fact that races are now competitive is proof things are changing.

So cite some specific examples of said unprofessionalism; otherwise, you're just flinging do-do at the wall.
My personal idea of unprofessionalism is maintaining a supervisory position over an election in which you are a candidate. Never mind that egregious breach of ethical behavior; watching your man point a firearm at a teenaged boy weeks after the Parkland massacre was enough to convince me that Georgia elected the wrong candidate.

What the HELL are you talking about?! Stacy Abrams is probably the most educated (Jurist Doctorate in Law from Harvard) and articulate person who EVER ran for governor of Georgia -- black, white, male, female or other. She ran a great campaign and almost won against VERY high odds in a state that just 50 years ago elected an avoid white supremacist and racist Lester Maddox!

As for professionalism and ethics ... SHE resigned from the Senate to run for governor to avoid any conflicts while Kemp remained Secretary of State and oversaw his own election! She is absolutely right to question the fairness of our election process. There is nothing "unprofessional" about her motives.

Oh .... and if Kemp was such a bad candidate what does that say for the future of the GOP in Georgia? Abrams is a rock star compared to him. If she runs for the Senate, she'll win.

Yeah ... somebody's in denial all right!

My thought exactly when I read that lame comment.

Great minds.

Speak for yourself, Columbus.

I'm more concerned about not ever again seeing any last minute fake charges occur in any future campaign in Georgia such as those that the Kemp Secretary of State's office made that hysterically cried that the Democrats had tried to hack the state election system. Remember that my friend? Did you really believe that last minute desperation by the kemp camp & Georgia gop, much less believe that there would be an ongoing serious investigation made by the FBI as was claimed. If there is one ongoing, what evidence do we have of it?
The election was over 5 months ago. As of Friday, Jim Galloway's AJC column noted that nobody in the Democratic Party of Georgia or the former political apparatus of Stacey Abrams had been contacted, much less interviewed by any law enforcement source, be it FBI or any other investigatory agency.
So, let's be honest. What appears to have happened in the waning days of the election campaign in terms of the hacking insinuation? Pardon me for being a cynic toward the Georgia gop but it was a big, fat lie. So, what they have earned from me is a big fat vote of "No Confidence!
Flagrant crookedness & false charge fakery by the Georgia gop is what I want "to go away"!

If I could award you plus rating points on a per word basis, you'd have just accumulated a 100,000 of said points!

Thanks for saying what I would like to have written here a moment ago!

The Georgia GOP apparatus views Stacey Abrams as being the biggest threat to Republican control and dominance in Georgia... So Stacey Abrams is going to be the biggest target of any GOP efforts to suppress future Democratic challenges to continued GOP control and dominance of Georgia politics.
"...Emadi says the commission investigated complains lodged against Republican Brian Kemp's campaign for governor, but found no sustainable allegations....


Emadi pushes back saying his office looks into complaints irrespective of partisan ties.

Emadi says the ethics commission also has active investigations ongoing into complaints made against "all" the candidates for Atlanta Mayor who ran in 2017, including Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms...."

Sound like the Democrats filed the first complaints. Republicans are returning the favor.

She won EVERY urban county in the state (70 percent of her total) and 65 percent of all voters ages 18-34. 25 percent of WHITE voters and 62 percent of LATINO voters. She got a larger percentage of the college educated vote (54 percent with bachelors degrees and 60 percent with advance degrees) including 40 percent of WHITE college graduate. Kemp's voters on the other hand were largely rural (58 percent) over 50 (60 percent) and uneducated (80 percent of all women and men without college degrees).

Stacy Abrams didn't win but she made history .... and MILLIONS of Georgians want EVERYTHING to do with her!
Can I get an amen?

Some folks are a bit afraid of this lady's power. They should be.
