Georgia's Brian Kemp investigates Democrats over alleged cybercrime

  • Oprah Winfrey makes rare campaign appearance for Stacey Abrams

The two-paragraph press release from Kemp's office - titled "AFTER FAILED HACKING ATTEMPT, SOS LAUNCHES INVESTIGATION INTO GEORGIA DEMOCRATIC PARTY" - reads: "After a failed attempt to hack the state's voter registration system, the Secretary of State's office opened an investigation into the Democratic Party of Georgia on the evening of Saturday, November 3, 2018".

Susie Griggs, an Abrams supporter, said that Abrams is a Christian and has her vote.

Abrams and Kemp are both condemning an automated telephone call filled with racist and anti-Semitic statements. I'm not trying to test any waters - don't want to go in those waters. Abrams will make history if she's elected governor of the state as the first black woman to hold the post.

But Abrams brushed off the probe as Kemp's "desperate attempt to turn the conversation away from his failures" as Georgia's secretary of state in the lead up to the gubernatorial election on Tuesday.

Pence said Abrams is being bankrolled by Hollywood liberals, referring to Winfrey and actor Will Ferrell.

The Georgia gubernatorial race had already been fraught with a race-laden debate over ballot access and voter suppression.

"I don't want to run, OK?"

CNN's Jake Tapper informed Abrams of Kemp's cybercrime allegation during her appearance on State of the Union Sunday. "I'm not testing the waters".

"I see that same potential in Stacey Abrams", the vile message continues.

"For anybody here who has an ancestor who didn't have the right to vote and you are choosing not to vote wherever you are in this state, in this country, you are dishonoring your family", Winfrey said on Thursday, according to HuffPo.

As Winfrey was speaking, Vice President Mike Pence was in Dalton, about 70 miles north of Marietta, to add his support to Kemp.

"This ain't Hollywood, this is Georgia - and Georgia wants a governor that's going to put Georgia values and Georgia first", Mr Pence said at a rally for Mr Kemp this week.

Winfrey surprised local Georgia residents by knocking on their doors and canvassing.

The robocall says it was paid for by the group Road to Power, which is an Idaho-based white supremacist group.

Investigative journalism website WhoWhatWhy reported Sunday that they had received an email and document, sent from the Democratic Party of Georgia to election security experts, that highlights "massive" vulnerabilities within the state's online voter registration system.
