Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams accuses GOP rival of last-minute ‘witch hunt’

That is usually what is said when they are about to be convicted of a crime.

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams on Monday slammed her Republican opponent, Brian Kemp, saying he abused his power as secretary of state by launching a last-minute investigation into the state’s Democratic Party. She called the investigation a “witch hunt.”

Kemp’s office said it was looking into an alleged attempt by Democrats to hack into the state’s election system.

As secretary of state, Kemp oversees Georgia’s elections.

Democrats have called on him to step aside, and accused him of trying to use technicalities to prevent some minority voters from casting ballots.

“It’s wrong to call it an investigation,” Abrams, who is in a tight race with Kemp, said. “It’s a witch hunt that was created by someone who is abusing his power.”
