    Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) blasted Stacey Abrams after she lost a court battle over her 2018 election defeat.

    Appearing on "Fox News Sunday," Kemp lashed out at Abrams for using the legal fight over her loss four years ago to further her personal and political gain. Her lawsuit claimed that Georgia had suppressed voters, but Kemp pointed out that the state had record turnout in the May primaries after the state legislature had passed a voter integrity law in 2021.

    "Stacey Abrams and her group lost on every single count in that ruling Friday," Kemp told host Shannon Bream. "It's sad that since day one, she's used this whole process to line her pockets, sow distrust in Democratic institutions, and build her celebrity status. And using the legal system for her own political gain, quite honestly. Thankfully, [Northern District of Georgia] Judge [Steven] Jones made it clear to all Georgians and people around the country, that in our state it's easy to vote and hard to cheat. And look, she's spinning that narrative, Shannon. I mean, we just had record turnout in our primaries, not only in the Republican primary, but also in the Democratic primary."

    Judge Jones ruled against Abrams on Friday in a lawsuit brought in the district court by Fair Fight Action, a nonprofit founded by Abrams to combat so-called "voter suppression" after she lost to Kemp in the 2018 gubernatorial election, The New York Times reported.

    "This is the same crowd that cost us the [MLB] All-Star Game, saying the new law that we passed to protect the integrity of the vote was 'suppressive' and 'Jim Crow 2.0,' and we've had record turnout. And even though we lost the All-Star Game and Major League Baseball caved to [Abrams] and that narrative, thankfully the Braves won the World Series, hopefully we're gonna beat the Mets tonight and win the division, and then repeat."

    The suit challenged a host of voting laws in the state, including absentee ballot provisions, oversight of voter rolls, and a law that requires voter identification information to match their government ID.

    "Although Georgia's election system is not perfect, the challenged practices violate neither the constitution nor the Voting Rights Act," Jones wrote in the 288-page order.

    "Judge Jones' ruling exposes this legal effort for what it really is: a tool wielded by a politician hoping to wrongfully weaponize the legal system to further her own political goals," Kemp said in a statement Friday via Fox News.

Do you consider Election Integrity an issue of some real importance, or just another conspiracy theory interfering with Democratic Socialist political hegemony?
  No, complete access to everyone voting, even in a willy nilly manner, is more important than getting it right by limiting access to those that would commit Voter Fraud.
  Yes, the most inalienable right of real citizens of this Democratic Republic is the Right to Vote, and that right shall remain sacrosanct for perpetuity.
  Again, I don't vote and I don't care.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
