Abrams ends Georgia governor bid, says she'll file lawsuit
[S]he announced plans to file a federal lawsuit to challenge the way Georgia's elections are run. She accused Kemp of using the secretary of state's office to aggressively purge the rolls of inactive voters, enforce an "exact match" policy for checking voters' identities signatures that left thousands of registrations in limbo and other measures to tile the outcome in his favor.

"Let's be clear: This is not a speech of concession," Abrams said. "Because concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true or proper. As a woman of conscience and faith, I cannot concede that."

But Judge Billy Ray Jr's order got turfed. So that's a win.

Brian Kemp and Kris Kobach: Assault on voting rights | Slate |

There's Georgia, where Secretary of State (and current gubernatorial candidate) Brian Kemp has been holding for administrative review up to 53,000 voter registration cards for failing to have an exact match (like a missing hyphen) between the official record of a person's name and the name appearing on the registration card. And there's Dodge City, Kansas, a Latino-majority city with only a single polling place for 27,000 people--a polling place that was recently moved out of town and a mile from public transportation for the 2018 midterm elections.

Georgia Voter Suppression Under Brian Kemp Remains a Major

Kemp is Georgia Secretary of State, the state's top elections official. He has decreased the overall number of voters in Georgia since 2012 by more than 1 million -- all while purging the rolls in a way that has predominantly affected black residents.

Don't dare call the USA an example democracy ... leader of third world nations in corruption and warmongering.
