Georgia governor beats up Stacey Abrams ‘flip flop’ in boycotts of suffrage
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp called Democrat Stacey Abrams on Monday “the biggest flip-flop since John Kerry”. Abrams criticized the new law, which opponents believe will make it difficult for individuals, especially black voters, to exercise their constitutional right to vote. Right before Major League Baseball’s decision on Friday to pull the all-star game out of Atlanta, which is said to cost $ 100 million in tourism revenue, it urged people not to boycott Peach State. “Black, Latin American, AAPI, and Native American voters who are the most oppressed [the new law] are most likely to be affected by potential boycotts of Georgia. To our friends, please don’t boycott us. To my Georgian fellow citizens, stay and fight, stay and vote, ”Abrams said in a video on Wednesday. Kemp, a Republican who defeated Abrams in the 2018 gubernatorial election, claimed she benefited from the policy during an appearance on Fox News’ The Story. “People have to follow the money and see why they are doing this and are so effective and, honestly, why they are working so hard on it. It has nothing to do with the merits of the bill. It is the political pressure of a minority of people, the culture of cancellation. You shake people off for a long time, ”he said. “You know, this is the biggest flip-flop I’ve ever seen since John Kerry,” he later added, referring to the 2004 presidential candidate who was accused on a number of key questions during the Flip campaign -Flops “. “For someone who pressured these companies and pressured Major League Baseball to come out now and say, don’t boycott? People get fooled with it. “On Friday, MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement that after” thoughtful discussions with clubs, past and current players, the Players Association and the Players Alliance, “he decided that the” best way to demonstrate our values as a sport. ” , is moving this year’s All-Star Game and MLB Draft. Manfred said MLB “fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes ballot box restrictions.” Kemp said Manfred “doesn’t know what the hell he’s talking about” regarding the alleged racism and inequalities of the new law. “You know, they don’t relate to certain points in the legislation. I am happy to talk about it [CEO’s], Speaking of which. You know, it’s the biggest lie out there, ”said Kemp. “Obviously [MLB] I didn’t care what was said because they were under pressure, ”he added. President Biden’s staff couldn’t even get him a note card that said what that bill did. Someone is lying to you. I am not. You can read the bill and prove it. “Proponents of the law deny allegations that it is aimed at suppressing votes, pointing out that the legislation does not re-limit election time on election day and make state elections safer without restricting voter access. They have also argued that other states, including Biden’s native Delaware, have more restrictive voting rules.
