ICYMI: BIDEN COMES TO TOWN TO ANOINT STACEY ABRAMS

ATLANTA— On Thursday, in a self-congratulatory visit to Georgia, President Joe Biden stopped to gush over leftist Stacey Abrams – hinting at her eventual run for president. Abrams, who still refuses to concede Georgia’s 2018 gubernatorial election even after losing by over 50,000 votes, earned Biden’s glowing endorsement for her shady, dark money funded voter registration efforts and fabricated smear campaign against Georgia’s Election Integrity Act.


“After only 100 days in office, it sounds like Joe Biden has already anointed his successor – and it’s no big surprise that Stacey Abrams is next in line for the throne,” said Stop Stacey Senior Strategist Jeremy Brand. “For years, Stacey has used any means necessary to climb the political ladder and advance her liberal agenda – whether pretending to be governor, racking up millions in dark money donations, or making up lies to smear her political opponents. She’s the ethically questionable radical that Democrats are counting on to complete their total transformation of America.”

PRESS RELEASE: HOW MUCH MONEY IS STACEY ABRAMS MAKING FROM THE MLB’S BOYCOTT OF GEORGIA?

ATLANTA — Following Major League Baseball’s decision to move the All-Star Game out of Atlanta last week, the Cobb County Travel and Tourism Bureau released estimates that the ill-advised decision could cost locals over $100 million in revenue. While small businesses and their employees search for ways to stay afloat during the pandemic, radical Stacey Abrams continues to use her baseless attacks on Georgia’s new election integrity legislation to raise cash for her shady, George Soros-funded network of dark money political groups. Yesterday, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported that Patagonia would contribute $1 million to Abrams’ political groups after she penned an Op-Ed last week in which she issued a veiled threat to any and all corporations she didn’t deem supportive of her misinformation campaign. And now Fox Business is reporting that Abrams may have been the one responsible for the MLB’s final decision. The only question that remains: how much is Abrams making off of her lies?

“Now we know Stacey Abrams was behind the MLB’s shameful decision to move the All-Star Game out of Atlanta. The only question that remains: How much money is she currently raising for her own political ambitions while hardworking Georgians are set to lose millions?” said Senior Strategist Jeremy Brand. “Big corporations like the MLB fell for Stacey’s deceitful narrative, and now small businesses and struggling employees—many of whom are people of color—are on the losing end. Cancel culture is killing jobs while making radical liberals like Stacey Abrams richer than ever. It’s time for Georgians to stand up, make their voices heard, and hold Abrams accountable for her disgusting brand of grifting politics.”

OP-ED: WHY STACEY ABRAMS AND THE DEMOCRATS ARE WRONG ABOUT GEORGIA ELECTION REFORM

ATLANTA– In case you missed it, Townhall published an Op-Ed penned by Stop Stacey Senior Strategist Jeremy Brand entitled “Why Stacey Abrams and the Democrats are Wrong about Georgia Election Reform.” The piece outlines the critical importance of free and fair elections in our country, the prudent, common-sense reforms the Georgia legislature passed with the Election Integrity Act, and the blatant lies and hypocrisy surrounding the bill coming from—none other—than Stacey Abrams and her far-left allies. Click HERE to read the full article, or see excerpts below:


“Fair, free, and trusted elections are the bedrock of our democracy. Throughout the course of our country’s history, Americans have fought and died for one of our most sacred rights. Expressing one’s voice at the ballot box is how our country has evolved, grown and prospered for hundreds of years—and it is one of the greatest honors we are granted as Americans. Not only should that right never be infringed or questioned—but it should never be watered down, altered, or manipulated. Unfortunately, in 2020, far too many states used the pandemic as an excuse to do just that—and as a result, voters lost confidence in their fundamental right as Americans. 


Thankfully, Republicans in the Georgia legislature have stepped up in a big way to correct some of the irregularities and mistakes we saw in the 2020 election.


What’s more, the legislature has stood strong in the face of constant harassment, character assassinations, lies and misinformation from the left, and a completely dishonest mainstream media. In fact, at no point in our country’s history have the mainstream media, Big Tech, and far-left Democrats been so united in pushing a false narrative than during the Georgia Legislature’s push to restore election integrity in the Peach State.
The reality is that while Democrats – led by Stacey Abrams – and the media cry “voter suppression,” the new Republican reforms are common-sense solutions that ensure every legal vote counts.


For example, one of the major items in the bill will do away with the subjective signature match process for absentee ballots and instead require a voter to provide their driver’s license number in order to verify their identity and cast a ballot. Absentee ballot drop boxes, which didn’t exist before 2020, will now be governed by clear rules and regulations, including strict surveillance. And those who attempt to vote at the wrong precinct on Election Day will be required to go to the correct one.


Some reforms ensure accuracy by triggering automatic reviews of counties where votes are lost or incorrectly counted, while others guarantee transparency by policing misleading activity by third-party voter registration groups. And although it has become a favorite talking point of the radical left, Georgia’s new rule around the distribution of food and beverages at polling places isn’t a draconian disenfranchisement technique – it’s a critical reform to put an end to vote-buying on Election Day.


The facts are clear: Senate Bill 202 makes it easier to vote and harder to cheat in Georgia. But for individuals like Stacey Abrams – who manufactures controversies and spreads lies to pocket millions of dollars, snag appearances on MSNBC, and feed her political ambition – the facts don’t matter. The truth is that Georgia’s new election legislation – which actually expands early voting and prevents long lines – is a tremendous victory for secure, accurate, and transparent processes in this state.

PRESS RELEASE: ICYMI: WALL STREET JOURNAL EXPOSES ABRAMS’ LIES ABOUT GEORGIA ELECTION REFORM

ATLANTA – In case you missed it, the Wall Street Journal editorial board published an op-ed earlier this week exposing Stacey Abrams’ flagrant lies about Georgia’s new election reform legislation. As the article details, Abrams will do or say anything to amass total power – especially if it means falsely demonizing the Republican lawmakers who are working tirelessly to restore transparency, accuracy, and integrity to elections in Georgia. Click HERE to read the op-ed, or read excerpts below:

“The battle over voting rules is erupting again, and Georgia is back as political ground zero. It’s ‘a redux of Jim Crow, in a suit and tie,’ says Democrat and media favorite Stacey Abrams with her usual understatement. The actual proposals that have passed either the House or Senate are more prosaic, and we thought you might like to hear the facts.

“One plan would do away with signature matching, so election workers aren’t squinting at loops and handwriting slants to verify absentee ballots…. The House bill would set an earlier deadline for requesting a mail ballot…and permanent rules for ballot drop boxes…The House would also order that voter wait times be measured at large precincts.

“Another Senate bill would let state officials audit “low-performing” local election directors and appoint temporary replacements to force change. Now the stuff that makes headlines: The Senate passed a bill to roll back no-excuses mail voting. Absentee ballots would still be available to those obligated to be elsewhere, with a disability, or age 65 and up….But even if it did, Georgia would hardly be an outlier: More than a dozen states save the absentee exception for people who need it.

“Does any of this sound like Bull Connor at the precinct door? Georgia has had record voter numbers in recent years, including outstanding black turnout, and these proposals won’t reverse that…Last year’s pandemic election put a spotlight on election flaws like subjective signature matching and faulty deadlines. There’s real work to be done to secure voter confidence in ballot integrity before 2022.”

PRESS RELEASE: Stop Stacey issues statement urging corporate America to stand strong against woke cancel culture

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
THURSDAY, MARCH 18, 2021

STOP STACEY ISSUES STATEMENT URGING CORPORATE AMERICA TO STAND STRONG AGAINST WOKE CANCEL CULTURE

ATLANTA – Today, Stop Stacey issued the following statement in response to recent efforts by Stacey Abrams to cancel Georgia-based corporations who do not support her radical agenda. Abrams, who has denigrated Republican lawmakers as “domestic enemies” and accused them of resurrecting “racist” “Jim Crow” laws, is a strong proponent of sweeping federal election overhauls like H.R. 1 – even advocating to abolish the filibuster in order to get it passed.

“On her quest to fully radicalize the state of Georgia, Stacey Abrams is yet again attacking those who do not agree with her insane agenda. Even worse, Abrams is working around the clock to cancel private businesses and individuals who refuse to capitulate to her brand of partisan politics,” said Stop Stacey Senior Strategist Jeremy Brand. “Despite the media attention and Stacey Abrams’ attempts to weaponize race and cancel culture, we urge Peach State job creators to stand strong against her bullying tactics. Do not allow yourselves to be silenced by the woke mob. Rest assured, millions of Georgians – who don’t want their brands associated with divisive, dangerous politicians like Stacey Abrams – will continue to support you.”
