Oprah Winfrey On Racist, Sexist Robocalls: 'Jesus Don't Like Ugly'

Georgia Dems accused of ‘hacking voting system’ blame Rep rival for ‘power abuse

Kemp's decision to directly accuse the opposing party of wrongdoing while running for the state's highest office has further inflamed deep-seated worries over voting rights in Georgia at the height of a historic campaign by his Democratic opponent, Stacey Abrams, to become the country's black female governor.

On Sunday, the office of Georgia Secretary of State announced it was launching an investigation into the Georgia Democrat Party for possible "cyber crimes". The last-minute probe is widely seen as an attempt to derail the Abrams campaign by twisting a concerned voter's complaint about alleged voting security issues, that was sent to the Democrats before they then sent it to voter protection.

"I heard people were making racist robocalls in my name, against Stacey Abrams, who I am 100 percent for in Georgia", Winfrey said in an Instagram post.

Oprah Winfrey and Georgia Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams greet the audience during a town hall style event at the Cobb Civic Center on November 1, 2018 in Marietta, Georgia. Kemp said the calls were "vile" but on Monday Abrams criticized his response.

"This is yet another example of abuse of power by an unethical secretary of state", Rebecca DeHart, executive director of the Georgia Democratic Party, said on Sunday. If elected, Abrams would be the first non-white, non-male governor of Georgia and the first female African American governor in USA history. Republican Rep.

There were more than a dozen yachts around at the time and French-speaking tourists rushed to the man's rescue on a dingy. Christidis was flown by chopper to the Mackay Base Hospital, about 60 miles to the south, where he died.

"It sort of jumps off the page at me as being something that probably should have been turned over to the [Georgia Bureau of Investigation] or to an appropriate district attorney to investigate", Cox told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The Anti-Defamation League says the website is responsible for similar tactics in other Georgia election races.

"It's a complete and utter fabrication", she said.

The same poll also shows 52% of Georgia voters approve of President Trump's job performance with 43% disapproving of the Commander-in-Chief.

Abrams blasts Kemp as "an architect of voter suppression" for the way he's opted to enforce federal and state election laws. "And I want you to know that their blood has seeped into my DNA, and I refuse to let their sacrifices be in vain".

Voters in the U.S. state of Georgia broke the record for early voting in a midterm election with more than two million ballots cast ahead of tomorrow's contest, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp said in a press release. "Who we are is on the ballot", he said.
