What Is This Democrat Trying To Hide?

Democrat Stacey Abrams’ failed 2018 gubernatorial campaign notified the Georgia Ethics Commission on Friday that it will not fully comply with a subpoena seeking records sent in April.

The commission wants to review emails and bank statements from the Abrams campaign to determine whether it accepted donations from organizations exceeding the maximum contribution for a statewide election, according to a report from WABE. The state officials reportedly requested communications between Abrams aides and groups advocating for better political participation among minorities, along with financial records beginning in May 2018.

In a defiant letter to Georgia ethics officials, Abrams’ campaign lawyer, Joyce Gist Lewis, denied the campaign violated campaign finance laws.

In a tweet last Tuesday, Abrams’ campaign manager, Lauren Groh-Wargo, attacked the request. Abrams has yet to concede the race to Brian Kemp (R) despite losing by thousands of votes.
