Stacey Abrams, Georgia Democrats decry Brian Kemp's hacking claim

Democrat Stacey Abrams campaigned in Savannah and other southeast Georgia cities, while volunteers at her campaign office in East Point made phone calls to encourage voters to get to the polls.

Great wins for voters and for the state of Georgia, right?

If neither candidate receives 50 percent of the vote, the state would hold a runoff election on December 4. But, she said she doesn't want that to drive the outcome.

He unveiled his latest gambit Sunday, when he announced an investigation of the Democratic Party of Georgia for a "failed attempt to hack the state's voter registration system".

Democratic Candidate Stacey Abrams responded to the allegations on CBS this Morning saying "Brian Kemp was informed of this flaw in his system on Friday".

"This is yet another example of abuse of power by an unethical secretary of state", Rebecca DeHart, executive director of the Georgia Democratic Party, said on Sunday.

She added that it was "pathetic" that Kemp "has only now suddenly made a decision to find a conscience as polls are tightening and Georgia voters are making it clear that they reject the kind of hate he and his allies have been spewing around the state". 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.




"While we cannot comment on the specifics of an ongoing investigation, I can confirm that the Democratic Party of Georgia is under investigation for possible cybercrimes", Candice Broce, who works for Kemp, said, according to The Associated Press. She wrote it, her T-shirt said it, she said it, and she even sang it - vote.

Her husband Lance Whatley, a 29-year-old software engineer, was leaning toward voting for Kemp as he waited. She wants citizens to vote for her because her campaign is simply "better".

". There have never been crowds like this - just so you understand - in the history of politics".

Kemp, a 54-year-old businessman who has been secretary of state since 2010, has embraced President Donald Trump as he tries to extend GOP dominance in a state that hasn't elected a Democrat to its top job since 1998.

Last month, a federal judge endorsed plaintiffs' arguments that Kemp has been derelict in his management of the state election system and that the setup is lacking in reliability. But then, over last weekend, a coalition of civil rights groups won an injunction against the use of the controversial voter regulating software, Exact Match, allowing some 3,000 naturalized usa citizens to vote in elections this week and prevented the state from throwing out some absentee ballots. Obama swooped in to boost the Democrats, and media star Oprah Winfrey visited Georgia on behalf of Abrams.

Democrats denied Kemp's claim and ripped the investigation as a "political stunt" from a "desperate" candidate. "You suddenly open an investigation without giving any sort of details about what happened?"
