Twice-failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate and nationwide Democrat celeb Stacey Abrams remains to be free as of Monday, regardless of having maintained for years that her 2018 race was stolen — a declare for which former President Donald Trump has been indicted.
Trump and 18 others — together with attorneys, marketing campaign aides, and supporters — have been indicted in Fulton County, Georgia, on Monday on a collective 41 counts for his or her claims that the 2020 presidential election was stolen — not simply in Georgia, however elsewhere.
The indictment, nonetheless, describes “acts” furthering the “conspiracy” that largely include public statements, protests, claims at hearings, and even posts on social media — the exact same sorts of actions and statements Abrams and her allies made for years.
Like Trump and his associates, Abrams made her claims of a stolen election repeatedly, from public platforms (and seems to have believed them). Like Trump, Abrams enlisted the assistance of political allies — and, worse, different elected Democratic officers.
Like Trump, Abrams took her claims to courtroom, the place they have been dismissed even by in any other case sympathetic judges. Like Trump, Abrams nonetheless persuaded the media and supporters that her election was, actually stolen; many nonetheless consider it to today.
Abrams simply went to work convincing nearly all mainstream media that the election was stolen from her (a few of it earlier than the election truly occurred, Michelle Goldberg wrote that Kemp was attempting to “rig” it forward of the vote.) Authorized, if fully false.

And but no prosecutor — not in Fulton County, not in the entire state of Georgia, and positively not on the federal stage — has ever prosecuted Stacey Abrams for her efforts, which apparently are against the law within the Peach State, involving doubtlessly severe felonies.
Curiously, Abrams went on to assist arrange what Time journal described as a “shadow marketing campaign” to “save” the 2020 election. That effort concerned altering voting guidelines and utilizing personal funds to assist public officers end up votes in Democratic counties.
Equally, nobody has ever been charged, in Georgia or elsewhere, for his or her involvement within the “Russia collusion” hoax, which aimed to overturn the 2016 presidential election. A lot of its proponents are in senior roles within the Biden administration at the moment.
