Stacey Abrams: ‘Brian Kemp Has Been an Exquisite Architect of Voter Suppression for the Last Decade’

‘He is wrong in his aggressive attempts to dissuade people from voting because voter suppression works in two ways’

EXCERPT:

ABRAMS: "Brian Kemp has been an exquisite architect of voter suppression for the last decade, and the outside agitators he so blithely dismisses include Asian American groups based in the state of Georgia, Latino groups based in the state of Georgia, African American community organizations based in the state of Georgia who have been doing this work for decades. He’s wrong. He’s wrong in how he approaches the right to vote. He is wrong in his aggressive attempts to dissuade people from voting because voter suppression works in two ways. One is how he does it, which is to stop you from actually being able to cast a ballot. But the second is by creating mass ma of fear. That’s what he did in brooks county. It’s what he did in Hancock it’s what he has done all over the state of Georgia. But our campaign is grounded in the belief if we tell people they have power and show them how to use it, they will use it and we will win this election."
