Stacey Abrams: Georgia Did Not Have A "Free And Fair Election"; Kemp "Dismantled Democracy"


Democratic candidate for governor of Georgia Stacey Abrams talks about her decision not to concede the race. In a speech last week, Abrams refused to concede. Abrams accused her Republican opponent Brian Kemp of "systemic dismantling of our democracy" in the state of Georgia.

STACEY ABRAMS: It was not a free and fair election. We had thousands of Georgians who were purged from the rolls wrongly, including a 92-year-old woman who voted in the same area since 1968, a civil rights leader.

It was not fair to the thousands who were forced to wait in long lines because they were in polling place that's were underresourced, or worse, they had no poling places to go to because more than 300 had been closed. It was not fair to the thousands who had been put on hold with their registrations.

It was not fair to those who filled out absentee ballots, depending on the county you sent it to. It was counted or not counted, assuming you received it in time.

Brian Kemp oversaw for eight years the systemic dismantling of our democracy, and that meant there could not be free and fair elections in Georgia this year
