Tragic that a black woman is castigated for taking responsibility for her family's financial difficulties, but a white man gets a free pass for far more egregious activity.
Oh please. This discussion is not about Kemp so stop shifting the discussion. Start your own thread on that.

I do applaud her for helping her family; I do something similar with my own, but not as tragic as her situation.

But - she has over $200K in debt which she is paying off. Never said she wasn’t addressing it, but she knowingly chose to not pay her taxes on time.

“The campaign said in a statement that Abrams deferred her tax payments in 2015 and 2016 because she was helping to pay her family’s expenses and that she is on a payment plan with the IRS for the $54,000 she owes.”

That’s nicely phrased, but the IRS doesn’t let you choose. She owed April 15 each year but decided to underpay her taxes.

She also received a large book advance, so presumably she’s spending time writing now, otherwise she has to return the $150K. Had she won the governor’s race I don’t know how she would have found the time to write a book and also be our governor, but it’s certainly possible.

But she’s also supporting 2 households and paying off a ton of debt, for the prospect of a decent but not extremely generous salary (even as a US Senator.) Seems to me that the sensible thing would be to hold off on politics, put her prestigious law degree and writing skills to use, pay everything off and then run again without this cloud over her head. But that’s why she is in politics and I’m not. Everyone that seems to win office ends up a millionaire when they leave.

Again, crickets on your boy Kemp.
