Stacey Abrams may very well become the next governor of Georgia.

However, not only did Abrams say a “blue wave” in November will consist of illegal aliens, but an unearthed report shows Abrams setting the Georgia flag ablaze during a protest in her youth.

This doesn’t look good.

From The Hill:

A decades-old news article about Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) burning the state flag, which at the time included the Confederate battle flag, resurfaced on Monday.

Abrams stood on the steps of the Georgia Capitol in 1992 and burned the Georgia state flag which was viewed as a symbol of white supremacy due to its Confederate design, The New York Times reported.

She was a freshman at Spelman College in Atlanta at the time and now her role in the protest is being reexamined as she faces a close race with her Republican opponent, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp.

Continued:

The rivals are scheduled for their first debate on Tuesday.

The June 14, 1992 protest was documented in the local section of the Atlanta Journal and Constitution newspaper the following day.

Abrams later spoke to the newspaper again a few weeks later and described the backlash from the initial article.

She reportedly gave an example of a woman who called her to argue the Confederate flag was a symbol of Southern heritage. Black people who did not like it could “get the hell out,” Abrams recalled.

Does Abrams not know that illegals can’t vote?

More on Abrams:

Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams’ campaign is calling on Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp to resign following a report his office is using a controversial verification law to effectively suppress the minority vote in their race to become the state’s next governor.

The demand from the Abrams campaign comes in response to an Associated Press report on records it obtained showing Georgia has put a hold on more than 53,000 voter registration applications — nearly seven-in-ten of them belonging to African Americans — because they failed to clear the state’s “exact match” standard.

Under the policy, even the most minor discrepancy — like a typo or missing letter — between a voter’s registration and their drivers license, social security or state ID cards can be flagged.

Continued:

“As he has done for years, Brian Kemp is maliciously wielding the power of his office to suppress the vote for political gain and silence the voices of thousands of eligible voters — the majority of them people of color,” Abrams spokeswoman Abigail Collazo said in a statement.

Collazo pushed for Kemp to step down “so that Georgia voters can have confidence that their Secretary of State competently and impartially oversee this election.” Georgia Democrats were rebuffed when they made a similar request earlier in the year.

Kemp’s campaign maintains voters whose names were tied up in the system would still be able to either sort out the documentation at elections sites or, if not, cast provisional ballots. It also touted the state’s growing rolls, saying they were likely to surpass 7 million once the final numbers came in following Tuesday’s registration deadline.

Continued:

“While outside agitators disparage this office and falsely attack us, we have kept our head down and remained focused on ensuring secure, accessible, and fair elections for all voters,” Kemp said in a statement. “The fact is that it has never been easier to register to vote and get engaged in the electoral process in Georgia, and we are incredibly proud to report this new record.”

Abrams, who became a national Democratic star during her primary campaign, is vying to become the first black woman elected governor in any state. She is running neck-and-neck with Kemp, with most recent polling and analysis predicting a toss-up on Election Day. Republicans have held the governor’s mansion in Georgia since 2003.

Bill Gates Reportedly Took Marriage Advice from Jeffrey Epstein

It’s like taking cooking tips from Jeffrey Dahmer.

Published

When it comes to taking advice on your love life, there are very few people in the world today who would suggest that the now-deceased child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein would be a valuable asset. This would be like asking Keith Richards about his tips for sobriety, or asking Joe Biden for his public speaking tricks.  Yet still, almost unbelievably, it appears as though Bill Gates was seeking out the advice of the aforementioned Epstein at times when the Microsoft founder’s marriage was going awry. Bachelor sex-offender Jeffrey Epstein gave Bill Gates advice on ending his marriage with Melinda after the Microsoft co-founder complained about her during a series of meetings at the money manager’s mansion, according to two people familiar with the situation. Gates used the gatherings at Epstein’s $77 million New York townhouse as an escape from what he told Epstein was a “toxic” marriage, a topic both men found humorous, a person who attended the meetings told The Daily Beast. The billionaire met Epstein dozens of times starting in 2011 and continuing through to 2014 mostly at the financier’s Manhattan home—a substantially higher number than has been previously reported. Their conversations took place years before Bill and Melinda Gates announced this month that they were splitting up. Apparently, this was a two-way street. Gates, in turn, encouraged Epstein to rehabilitate his image in the media following his 2008 guilty plea for soliciting a minor for prostitution, and discussed Epstein becoming involved with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The wealthy computing legend and philanthropist is having some trouble with his image of late, as his squeaky-clean, almost nerdy image has been shattered by accusations of extramarital affairs and sleazy behavior after it was announced that he and Melinda were considering a divorce.

Matt Gaetz’s Trouble Intensifies as Pal Pleads Guilty to Sex Trafficking

The Florida Congressman’s buddy is now cooperating with investigators.

Everyday, some scandal befalls Washington DC.  It is a place gone mad at times, where the only real excitement felt by our elected officials comes when they skirt the law and ethics both to enrich themselves at the expense of the American people. But most of these salacious situations are muted; almost blasé at times.  We’re so conditioned to believe that our representatives are dirty that we often forget to bat an eye at their shenanigans. There are some actions, however, that are unforgivable, and there are some scandals that are undeniably different from the routine ruses. Congressman Matt Gaetz how now found himself right smack dab in the middle of such a mess. A Florida politician who emerged as a central figure in the Justice Department’s sex trafficking investigation into Rep. Matt Gaetz pleaded guilty Monday to six federal charges and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors as part of a plea deal. Joel Greenberg, a longtime associate of Gaetz’s, appeared in federal court in Orlando. He pleaded guilty to six of the nearly three dozen charges he faced, including sex trafficking of a minor, and he admitted that he had paid at least one underage girl to have sex with him and other men. And it gets worse for Gaetz still… Gaetz was not mentioned in the plea agreement or during the court hearing. But Greenberg’s cooperation — as a key figure in the investigation and a close ally of Gaetz’s — may escalate the potential legal and political liability that the firebrand Republican congressman is facing. Federal prosecutors are examining whether Gaetz and Greenberg paid underage girls and escorts or offered them gifts in exchange for sex, according to two people familiar with the matter. Investigators have also been looking at whether Gaetz and his associates tried to secure…
