Georgia's Brian Kemp Announces Election Hacking Charge Against Democrats

HuffPost

"This political stunt from Kemp just days before the election is yet another example of why he can not be trusted and should not be overseeing an election in which he is also a candidate for governor", the state party's executive director, Rebecca DeHart, said in a statement.

Republican Brian Kemp on Monday stood by his decision to level claims of attempted hacking at Democrats, turning their objections - and the concerns of nonpartisan civil rights groups - into an election eve selling point. And we know what to do about that: "Vote".

Kemp has simultaneously overseen the election process as secretary of state and run a gubernatorial race against Democrat Stacey Abrams.

Republican Candidate for Governor Brian Kemp announced Sunday on the Georgia Secretary of State site and on his Facebook Campaign Page that he requested an FBI investigation into the Democratic Party of Georgia's "failed efforts to breach the online voter registration system and My Voter Page". Kemp was clearly afraid that his racist voter suppression tactics may not seal the deal for him, which is why his latest fear-mongering tactic was so laughable. "I just want to say: Jesus don't like ugly ... They seem to be doing it backwards", Richard DeMillo, a Georgia Tech professor and one of the experts contacted by Georgia Democrats, told CNN on Monday.

Abrams also called Kemp a "bald-faced liar" at a campaign event over the weekend.

"She supports a socialist takeover of health care, which means you will never be able to see your doctor", the president continued.

He calls it an investigation.

Blizzard reportedly pulled a Diablo 4 teaser from BlizzCon 2018
But for reasons unknown, the plan changed a couple of weeks prior to BlizzCon, and the Diablo 4 reveal was scrapped. The fan backlash against the game was strong enough that Activision Blizzard's stock price was impacted.

The Georgia outcome is among the most closely watched of any midterm contests for reasons beyond Abrams' race and gender.

Reprising his frantic campaigning during the final days of his 2016 race, Trump was barnstorming the country with rallies in Ohio, Indiana and Missouri, returning to the White House well after midnight.

"Thank you very much, Georgia", he opened.

The president asserted that if Democrats win, they will work to roll back everything he's tried to accomplish during his first two years as president.

Stamos said he believed Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department specialists would be better positioned to investigate any hack.

Republican Reps. Karen Handel and Rob Woodall face strong Democratic challengers in metro Atlanta congressional districts long considered safe for the GOP.

Handel's opponent, gun control activist Lucy McBath, has ties to Jacksonville, Florida. His killer was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison.
