Republican Candidate for Governor Brian Kemp announced Sunday on the Georgia Secretary of State site and on his Facebook Campaign Page that he requested an FBI investigation into the Democratic Party of Georgia's "failed efforts to breach the online voter registration system and My Voter Page".
Kemp's charge on Sunday appeared to result from a report made to his office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Saturday by a Georgia businessman with an expertise in software, according to David Cross, a lawyer representing several Georgia voters who have sued the state over its decision not to use paper ballots. "RT if you think Abrams is TOO EXTREME for Georgia!"
Stacey Abrams: "Once again, for the third time, he has put our voters at risk, and he has refused to take responsibility". The party's task was much more hard in the Senate, where Republicans hold a narrow 51-49 majority but Democrats are defending 10 seats in states won by the president two years ago. Kemp said the calls were "vile" but on Monday Abrams criticized his response. The "scurrilous claims are 100 percent false", Georgia Democrats said, accusing Kemp of showing "another example of abuse of power".
In a news release, Kemp's office said the Democratic Party is under investigation for "possible cyber crimes", and that it had alerted the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Bureau of Investigation. That total is almost twice the number purged between 2008 and 2012, the group said in a report. Republican Rep. Karen Handel faces a challenge from Lucy McBath in a race Inside Elections rates Lean Republican.
The robo-call apparently was made by TheRoadToPower.com, an anti-Semitic video podcasting website that the Anti-Defamation League says "has zeroed in on divisive political campaigns across the country", including both races that feature a black candidate for governor.

When President Donald Trump pulled off the 2016 election shocker, he credited the huge crowds at his rallies - which he now also trumpets before Tuesday's midterm elections, calling them the largest in midterms history.
Georgia's Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams speaks as her Republican opponent Secretary of State Brian Kemp looks on during a debate in Atlanta last month.
Abrams would be the first African-American woman to be elected governor in the U.S. But, she said she doesn't want people going to the polls with that in mind. "Who we are is on the ballot", he said.
They say the volunteer then forwarded that email to the Georgia Democratic Party Voter Protection Director. And I don't even want you to vote for us just because we're Democrats.
