On Saturday the acting Georgia Secretary Of State certified the bitter gubernatorial election as a win in favor of Republican Brian Kemp who represented the choice between sanity and socialism in the Peach State.
The margin of victory was too close for comfort especially considering that his opponent Stacey Abrams is a race-baiting socialist fanatic with delusions of grandeur and a woman who once burned a flag on the steps of the state capitol building. She also called for the sandblasting of Confederate figures off of Stone Mountain and while being coy about it, supports reparations as a form of bribery to get votes.
As a hulking gap-toothed woman who has the physical makeup to play nose tackle for the Atlanta Falcons cast an intimidating figure for many and that was without the demagogic word salad that she regularly spewed during her underdog campaign.
And she lost but instead of simply taking the high road and delivering a graceful concession, Abrams gave a sermon of bitterness and racial resentment that was so blistering hot at points that it could have peeled the paint off the walls.
And she’s going to file a lawsuit – you guessed it – the oppressive racist system.
The Stacey Abrams campaign has filed a federal lawsuit demanding that votes be counted by people who voted in counties in which they do not live. We're reached peak stupidity in this now.

Via The Associated Press, “Kemp asks for unity in Georgia as Abrams promises lawsuit”:
Republican Brian Kemp praised Democrat Stacey Abrams as a tough opponent and asked Georgia voters to unite behind him as the state’s new governor Saturday, even as Abrams blamed Kemp for “gross mismanagement” of an election that she acknowledged she did not win.
“I certainly appreciate Stacey Abrams’ tenacity, how hard she worked, the campaign she ran,” Kemp told reporters at a state Capitol news conference. “The fact of the matter is the election is now over and I’ve got to focus on governing this state.”
Abrams ended 10 days of post-election drama in Georgia’s closely watched and even more closely contested race Friday evening when she acknowledged that when the state’s final vote gets certified, Kemp will be the next governor.
Still, Abrams defiantly refusing to concede, and instead promised to file a federal lawsuit over the way Georgia elections are run. She accused Kemp of using his office secretary of state’s office to aggressively purge the rolls of inactive voters, enforce an “exact match” policy for checking voters’ identities that left thousands of registrations in limbo, and enact other policies to tilt the outcome in his favor.
Yet another example of how Democrats no longer respect the results of elections, a disturbing trend that has manifested itself with the party since Hillary’s epic loss in 2016.
