Georgia's centrally managed elections system lacks a verifiable paper trail that can be audited in case of problems. Kemp, meanwhile, has earned President Trump's endorsement.
Well, Secretary of State Kemp, we have been telling you that something has been going on over the past several months, and yet here we are, one day before the election with a scandal on our hands said to be caused by the opposing party.
"I think, unfortunately, Secretary Kemp has not only abused his power, he has failed to do his job", Abrams said in an interview with ABC on Monday.
Kemp, who now serves as Georgia's secretary of state, has been accused of using his position as the state's chief elections officer to suppress minority votes.
"Someone was making a good-faith effort to determine if there's a vulnerability, and he's coming after them and saying it's hacking", said the attorney, David Cross. Abrams is now favored by 46.9 percent of the voters while Kemp has 46.7 percent, recent polling from Channel 2 Action News and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution showed. Abrams and the state Democratic party swiftly rejected the allegations, claiming there was "never a hack" and declaring it was a feeble attempt to "suppress the vote".
Abrams, who is in the midst of a tight race against President Donald Trump-backed Republican candidate Brian Kemp, would be the first black female governor in US history. Is it coincidental that the Democratic Party is accused of hacking the voting system (with no details provided on the alleged hacking crime) days before Election Day when all other voting suppression tactics have failed and when a record number of people have voted early? The Anti-Defamation League says the website is responsible for similar tactics in other Georgia election races.
The racist ploy was in response to Oprah actively campaigning for Abrams in Georgia.
The issue delayed Kemp from voting for less than a minute, Charlotte Sosebee, Director of Elections for Athens-Clarke County told USA TODAY. "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". "It's another failure of Kemp's office to actually have a secure election system in the state". Those private communications ended up with Kemp announcing, without providing any evidence, that he was launching an investigation into Georgia Democrats for "possible cybercrimes".
Kemp's dual roles as Secretary of State and candidate, a massive conflict of interest, have allowed him to engage "in acts of voter suppression aimed to decrease the turnout for" Abrams, Richard L. Hasen writes at Slate. Then they could have used the information gathered to alter voter registrations en masse, an action that would potentially compromise the entire election.
The suit included allegations that the voter registration system was discriminatory, citing the cancellation of around 34,000 people's registration status between 2010 and 2013.
