Georgia's GOP Secretary of State alleges Democratic voter roll hack

Oprah Winfrey

'I approve this message': Oprah makes rare political appearance in support of Georgian candidate

Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, the Republican candidate in Tuesday's hotly contested gubernatorial election, has opened a probe of the state Democratic Party over what his office alleged on Sunday was a failed attempt to hack voter registration systems. Both Abrams and Kemp denounced the calls. I'm not trying to test any waters - don't want to go in those waters.

The allegations of voter suppression and the possibility that Abrams could become the first African-American woman to serve as a governor in the United States has drawn national attention to the race.

Before Oprah and the former president came to town, comedic actor Will Ferrell ("Step Brothers", "Old School", "The Campaign") was in Georgia going door to door in support of the Democratic candidate.

Winfrey did not mention Pence who, in appearances same day, charged Abrams with being "bankrolled by Hollywood liberals" and derided Winfrey's presence as well as a recent campaign appearance for Abrams by Will Ferrell.

Georgia, however, is home to a booming film industry, thanks to more than $1 billion in tax credits over the past decade, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. I've earned the right to think for myself.

"In four days, we get to stand up on November 6, and we get to say this is who we are because we are Georgia", Abrams said during the rally. "Are you voting for her?"

"This is the magical negro, Oprah Winfrey, asking you to make my fellow negress, Stacey Abrams, the governor of Georgia", the blatantly racist message says.

Stacey Abrams, 44, is a lawyer and novelist who served as minority leader of the Georgia House of Representatives from 2011 to 2017.

"I'm the only candidate with a plan to get that done and to do that without vitriol, without vilifying people", she added.

"I see that same potential in Stacey Abrams", the vile message continues.

Winfrey surprised local Georgia residents by knocking on their doors and canvassing.

Interesting position, because local Republicans have, from time to time, touting a tax credit that has turned Georgia into a film-making force; the industry contributed an estimated $2.7 billion in direct spending in Georgia a year ago, according to a report in the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
