The failed Stacey Abrams gubernatorial campaign in Georgia withheld nineteen emails from the Georgia Ethics Commission, which subpoenaed the campaign’s records.
WABE reported: “The subpoena says the campaign may have accepted donations from organizations exceeding the maximum contribution for a statewide election contest. The Abrams campaign sent more than 3,600 pages of financial records to state ethics officials.
But it withheld nineteen emails, according to a letter attached to the campaign’s response to David Emadi, the executive secretary of the ethics commission hired in April. The subpoena asked for banking records beginning in May of 2018, as well as communications between the Abrams campaign and organizations that advocate for people of color and often encourage them to vote.”
Stacey Abrams’ overtime tactics to agitate for a post-Election Day win in Georgia probably form the blueprint for how Democrats are going to approach elections from now on. The campaign staged legal fights and Abrams even said that “democracy failed” in her losing speech.
