Stacey Abrams Says She Was Almost
Blocked From Voting In Georgia Election

National Public Radio, by Jessica Taylor

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 11/20/2018 10:37:21 AM

Democrat Stacey Abrams isn´t backing down from her fight against what she calls voter suppression tactics and election mismanagement after losing the Georgia governor´s race. In fact, Abrams said she experienced the problems in her state firsthand — after nearly being denied a ballot during early voting. In an interview with Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep, the Democratic gubernatorial nominee said that when she went to vote last month, a poll worker initially told her that she had requested an absentee ballot and couldn´t cast an in-person vote. Abrams replied that she never filed for an absentee ballot, and after

Almost - but like 99.99% of others- was not.

Who to believe...the poll worker with records, or a potential voter with an agenda?

If she did not request an absentee ballot in her name, then who did? Another dim Dem who can´t see how easily fraud could be committed, even if they weren´t the one doing it.

Let´s take bets on how many times she actually voted! Yeah, She DEFINITELY knows the system. This is the reason absentee ballots should be discontinued except for military members and college students; also discontinue early voting, PERIOD. Use voter ID to register and vote in person on election day. How can the Board Elections show a person requested an absentee ballot if he/she did not. I have been voting for decades and have never had a single problem. It is the way that elections are run in certain States that are the underlying problem; the same for
people that own property in multiple States
and can easily vote in each State. Our elections are rife with fraud.MANDATORY voting in-person is the only way to resolve this situation.

She´s right, she was almost denied a vote because there are not enough checks on identity. Everyone that votes should have to identify themselves using government id. and an absentee ballot should require the same or equivalent protections. Protect Stacy Abrams´ vote! Require voter id!

Vote by mail ballots must be signed on the envelope. If signature does not match voter’s signature on record (we sign when we register and we sign every time we vote at the polls) it is tossed.

She was not denied a vote. She is just not bright and a racialist. Bad combo.

So a poll worker made a mistake and that proves the election was stolen? I am tired of these sore losers. I almost gave Bill Nelson credit for conceding graciously but now he is claiming fraud and theft. Let´s face it, Stacey Abrams was lucky to do as well as she did in red state Georgia. If there was fraud, it probably went in her favor.

Let’s walk through this slowly. If the records showed that someone requested an absence ballot, it seems that one should have been mailed. If so, was it voted and, more importantly, did Abrams vote twice? Inquiring minds want to know.

This woman is an embarrassment to my state of Georgia and how I wish she would go away, perhaps to California. She admitted on a news clip the other day that she plans to run again for political office - so I believe now that is her motive for carrying on the way she is. She wants to keep herself in the news as much as she can. I wouldn´t vote for her for sewer cleaner (if there is such a job)!

And just a note to those who may not know - in Georgia you are required to show picture ID before voting (and of course this is something that Abrams wants to get rid of).

NEW YORK — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is an unlikely national rock star. But “The Notorious RBG” is now the subject of a second film about her this year - in theaters on Christmas Day. On Saturday evening, the 85-year-old Brooklyn native appeared in person, expressing love for her hometown of New York to a sold-out audience at the event organized by the Museum of the City of New York with WNET-TV.

US Rep.-elect Rashida Tlaib will be sworn into office next month while wearing a traditional Palestinian gown. The Michigan Democrat announced on social media Friday that she intends to wear a thobe to the ceremony. "Sneak peek: This is what I am wearing when I am sworn into Congress," she wrote on Instagram, including the hashtags #PalestinianThobe and #ForMyYama (Arabic for mother). (Snip) Following that win, Tlaib appeared at a celebration rally where she was draped in a Palestinian flag and her mother broke out in ululation, a high-pitched vocal sound many Middle Eastern women make in celebration.

As he considers running for president, Joe Biden is talking with friends and longtime supporters about whether, at 76, he´s too old to seek the White House, according to several sources who have spoken with the former Democratic vice president.

Academy Award nominee Sondra Locke died over a month ago on Nov. 3 at age 74, Variety reports, citing the Los Angeles County Public Health Department as confirming her death. According to Radar.com, which says it obtained the actress’s death certificate, Locke died from cardiac arrest due to breast and bone cancer. There has been no prior media coverage of her death, though earlier this week, filmmaker Sam Taylor-Johnson posted an Instagram story consisting of Locke’s film stills and the message “RIP Sondra Locke.” Locke has reportedly been interred at Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park and Mortuary

The parents of an 11-year-old boy whose last name is Trump have told how they had to pull him out of school and change his surname because he has been relentlessly bullied for it since the 2016 election. Joshua Trump from Delaware has always used his mother Megan´s maiden name as his own. The family has no ties to the president but when he launched his presidential campaign, bullies seized on Joshua at elementary school. The bullying became so bad that his father, Robert Berto, pulled him out of school and home schooled him for a year.

STRASBOURG, France - The death toll in an attack on Strasbourg´s Christmas market rose to three on Thursday as police searched through eastern France and manned checkpoints on the German border in a hunt for the fugitive gunman. Police issued a wanted poster for Cherif Chekatt, the main suspect in the attack, who was on an watchlist as a potential security threat. Authorities say the 29-year-old was known to have developed radical religious views while in jail.

WASHINGTON — The 2020 Democratic presidential primary, already expected to be the party’s most wide open in decades, has been jostled on the eve of many long-plotted campaign announcements by a political threat that few contenders bothered considering until recently: Will a soon-to-be-former congressman, with an unremarkable legislative record and a Senate campaign loss, upend their best-laid plans? Representative Beto O’Rourke of Texas has emerged as the wild card of the presidential campaign-in-waiting for a Democratic Party that lacks a clear 2020 front-runner. After a star-making turn in his close race against Senator Ted Cruz, Mr. O’Rourke is increasingly serious

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. — Progressive Democrats are beginning to confront an unintended consequence of their own success: Dilution of the brand. So many Democratic presidential prospects are now claiming the progressive mantle in advance of the 2020 primaries that liberal leaders are trying to institute a measure of ideological quality control, designed to ensure the party ends up with a nominee who meets their exacting standards. Leaders of the Congressional Progressive Caucus are discussing policy platforms that could serve as a litmus test for presidential contenders.

While the job of a Green Beret entails eliminating U.S. enemies both here and abroad, one member of the 66-year-old special operations force is now being prosecuted for having done exactly that. According to reports, once-decorated Army Maj. Mathew L. Golsteyn has been charged in the premeditated murder of an Afghani bomb maker suspected of murdering two Marines. The charge stems from actions the former Green Beret took on the field while deployed eight years ago and words he spoke with Fox News host Bret Baier six years afterward.

Pastor John Gray, the leader of Relentless Church in Greenville, S.C., came under fire for presenting his wife, Aventer, with the expensive vehicle. A video that went viral, which has since been deleted, showed the pastor surprising his wife with the keys to the luxury vehicle last week, the Charlotte Observer reported.

Live Nation promises 10 upcoming performances by the Clintons next spring, and if the first two nights mean anything, this will be a tour on which nothing is quite right — a weird blend of darkness and nostalgia, of out-of-place things. Imagine watching the Clintons play a chipper, Newlywed Game–style quiz about their marriage

Going all in on attacking President Trump isn’t proving to be a particularly effective business strategy for media outlets. The Weekly Standard, a 28-year old neoconservative institution, is reportedly headed towards dissolution after its founder, Bill Kristol, devoted almost three years of work to attacking the President and his supporters. It’s not just Kristol. The entire world of clickbait Trump-hate seems to be in jeopardy, including sites that cater to the liberal base. The same week that The Weekly Standard’s troubles broke, Vanity Fair dropped a bombshell report about the struggles faced by those hip, millennial-targeted left-wing rags

President Donald Trump has bashed one of the loudest neoconservative ´Never Trumpers´, Bill Kristol, seizing on news that Kristol´s anti-Trump Weekly Standard magazine is folding. ´The pathetic and dishonest Weekly Standard, run by failed prognosticator Bill Kristol (who, like many others, never had a clue), is flat broke and out of business. Too bad. May it rest in peace!´ Trump tweeted on Saturday morning. It follows an announcement on Friday that the Weekly Standard, which Kristol co-founded in 1995, will be ceasing publication. Kristol, an avid Twitter user, responded to Trump´s tweet simply: ´@ me next time´. (Tweet/Photos) Trump´s attack

Jakelin Caal Maquin jumped up and down when her father told her they´re leaving their impoverished Guatemalan village for the United States.

Speaking on behalf of Jakelin´s mother, who only speaks a Mayan dialect, Caal said she hopes her husband stays in the US to work. The family is worried they would not be able to pay the debt they acquired to send Jakelin and her father north, he says.

The Weekly Standard will be no more. There is no real reason we are witnessing the magazine’s demise other than deep pettiness and a personal desire for bureaucratic revenge on the part of a penny-ante Machiavellian who works for its parent company. There would at least be a larger meaning to the Standard’s end if it were being killed because it was hostile to Donald Trump. But I do not believe that is the case.

Have you gotten your flu shot this year? If the answer is no - and I´m not getting one! - you´re not alone. A new study finds more than 40 percent of Americans have not been vaccinated and, in fact, don´t plan on it either. This is despite the warnings, potential dangers, and last year´s record-number of flu deaths. The survey was done by the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago. People under the age of 45 were the least likely to report being vaccinated.

Joining them Friday evening at an Amazon warehouse in Shakopee will be U.S. Rep.-elect Ilhan Omar, who’s the first Somali-American and one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress.
