  1. This lady is a national treasure. PROTECT HER AT ALL COST
    #STACYABRAMROCKS

    • @Samuel DeChamplain He is under 17 different investigations in NY stemming from political finance laws, a couple from things like laundering and falsifying his assets for taxes brakes. Now also a few in Georgia for that phone call where he wanted to find extra votes. So yes he is under investigation and while investigations means little other then suspicion. It’s not me who wants someone under investigation treating them like they are guilty.

    • Samuel DeChamplain | March 15, 2021 at 3:43 AM | Reply

      @gozzilla177 Oh yeah? By who is he under investigation for money laundering from? You know the IRS has his taxes, right? lol. Political finance laws? lol. Again, small frivolous lawsuits from politically motivated lawyers and interest groups. Not an FBI investigation like Hunter who fleeced sketchy Chinese and Ukrainian companies selling his senile father’s influence while he was VP. The Russia hoax failed…now you want to turn a blind eye to the dementia patient who is compromised by China and Ukraine through his junkie son

    • @Samuel DeChamplain You do understand the FBI only investigates federal crimes Hence the F in FBI FEDERAL bureau of investigation….. they do not get involved in local crimes, Hunter Bidens investigation was of a crime from overseas so NY lawyers have no jurisdiction that’s why the FBI has to investigate. Also Hunter is just the son of a politician he has never held office nor bin a president so why would you hold him to a standard higher then a former president?

    • Samuel DeChamplain | March 23, 2021 at 5:13 PM | Reply

      @gozzilla177 So you admit that crackhead Hunter is being investigated for fleecing sketchy overseas companies selling his fathers influence….glad we agree.

    • @Samuel DeChamplain Well not really an admition, it is a fact that he is under investigation. But then you tack on why he is. I mean I don’t think anyone is above the law, not that it seems to matter to much the previous administration pretty much made it so no crime whatsoever is impeachable, so that’s a bad precedent for our future….
      But if we are gonna act like investigations mean guilt, then there are alot of people in trouble Trump included, as he is under a slew of investigations after all.

      @Samuel DeChamplain You two gals are very active today ‘Sammy’ + ‘Covid’. Following a plan together? Soo close friends? Bitter MAGA cultists both, after being made fool of in public by GOP and the Comm in cheat for five years? And now feeling it all crumble? But can’t let go of the wet dream? Come on! Don’t be shy. Get it all out. You’ll feel better after a sound cry. ☝️

      @TatmanMyOwnBoss Danny Draco You mean she’s a staunch supporter of democracy, bonny lad? Thanks for your contribution to the first female President in 2024 . It’s people like YOU who make other people vote against GOP. So keep it up kid. πŸ’πŸΉ

      @Tom Porsgaard You are a prefect example of how liberalism is an obvious mental disorder…well, that and what you have done to California and NYC lately.

    “Lying is second nature to him. More than anyone else I have ever met, Trump has the ability to convince himself that whatever he is saying at any given moment is true, or sort of true, or at least ought to be true.”

    Abrams is an absolute queen. Republicans are afraid of her because they know that she speaks truth, and they know that the truth hurts them. Voting is currently a privilege, and it needs to be enforced as a right.

    • Samuel DeChamplain | March 15, 2021 at 1:28 AM | Reply

      @Peter Martell “protecting democracy from a racially motivated fascist wave” lol….yes, removing any effort it takes to vote and going back to city wide mail in ballots is fighting the fascists lol.

    • Peter Martell | March 15, 2021 at 1:36 AM | Reply

      @Samuel DeChamplain yes, the far right do not protect the right to vote. By your response i would conclude that you see voter fraud as a real thing despite the reality of voting in the time of covid

    • Maryella Rose | March 15, 2021 at 8:30 AM | Reply

      @Peter Martell Look, I live in a very minority based district and if people want to vote, they vote. Doesn’t matter how long the lines are or how far they have to go. A couple of elections ago, we even had more counted voted votes than citizens in one county. I also used to work the polls in a very rural area but could not continue to watch muscle bound black men threaten old white people at the polls. Just so you know it works both ways.

    • Peter Martell | March 15, 2021 at 12:18 PM | Reply

      @Maryella Rose so why do the republicans cut back on the polling booths and put them in places hard to access. Making voting difficult for minorities is not a character building exercise. more votes than citizens? Now you are just lying. Such a thing would not pass.

    • Maryella Rose | March 15, 2021 at 5:49 PM | Reply

      @Peter Martell I did not lie and it did not pass! How do you think I knew it genius?
      What places are difficult for minorities to get to? Because, I swear I see minorities every place I go. You would think there would be places with no minorities if they couldn’t get there.🀷

    I’m surprised Stacy Abrams wasn’t picked for Attorney General or VP.

    • @Chris Sanders Like you would even know. You voted for Biden. How much will it cost you over 4 yrs ? Lets start with higher taxes and higher gas prices. Or maybe the soliders he sends to protect a patch of sand.

      Yes sir.

    • Remove ballot mail boxes , require voter ID no more mail in voter fraud this should be expected across the country.

    • @Jerry P only there wasn’t any mail in fraud outside of a handful of cases in each state and it was for both candidates and nowhere near enough to decide an election. You’ve been lied to and I’m sorry, I really am.

      Let’s use the same standards for 1st, 2nd, and right to participate in representative democracy. I’d go for that.

  10. As usual, Ms. Abrams’ laser focus on Protecting our Right to Vote, brings absolute peace of mind, encouragement and hope on winning this fight.

    Abram’s losing the election to Kemp was the best thing for the nation. She led Georgia to 2 new Dem senators. She is a great thing whereas Hawley, Cruz, MTG, and others are the sad things in politics

      @Mike M Then I guess she’s s Repub like Trump. Maybe that why Repub,’s have already started legislation on voter suppression so they have chance to win. They said as much to a judge in loss of a case

      @Michael England when she lost in 2016 their was no mail in ballots 2020 fake covid hoax = mail in ballots = Democrats cheated to win

      @TatmanMyOwnBoss Danny Draco 540,000 deaths does not make a hoax. Sorry. The same for 29 Mil cases. The hoax was Trump taking money from donors pretending it was for election fraud cases. And don’t forget his new PAC that has almost no restrictions on how he can spend it. The hoax is you pretending you care about our country

  15. The US and the rest of the free world owes a huge debt to Ms Stacy Adams and Congressman Jim Clyburn, from saving us all from the madness of Trump and those who follow him.

    • They should both be in jail for Election tampering.

    • @L Hale then why is it only trump being criminally investigated for election fraud?

    • @L Hale Why? what have they done? have they been caught on tape like Trump trying to co-erce a governor to stump up fraudulent votes in their or someone else’s favour? Let me guess, you believe in the Trump theory of evidence, that whatever he says is true and reality is for losers?

    • @nni9310 I believe the math and I believe my eyes. If you believe 80 million people voted for Biden then deserve higher taxes more expensive gas as illegals flood over the border. The drug cartels voted for Biden and are very happy right now.

    • @L Hale None of what you have written either makes sense or has any truth to it. Let me guess…you’re a Trump voter.

    You cant call a country a true democracy when voter rights are open to manipulation by individual states, especially in electing people who will have national lawmaking powers.
