Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, November 07, 2018

Republican Brian Kemp's campaign declared victory Wednesday after election returns showed he maintained a slim majority over Democrat Stacey Abrams with nearly all precincts reporting. Abrams, meanwhile, said she wouldn't concede the race until all ballots are counted, and her campaign started preparing for what could be a lengthy battle in the courtroom and in the media over the outcome of the nationally watched race.

Brian Kemp is leading by 75000 votes.

He purged 320,000 people from the voter rolls.

This is why the GOP cheats. It works, they get away with it, and they have no ethics.

"This is why the GOP cheats. It works, they get away with it, and they have no ethics."

And neither do their supporters who know that yet don't say anything about it or worse, they make fun of people who complain about it.

If the national ID system were the key to getting your health care and medications, there'd be no need for "voter registration" and no ability for the GOP to purge voters. Its the second reason Republicans hate medicare for all. The first reason is they know their crooked friends in the health insurance industry will lose money.

Purging was only one of many election problems yesterday that appeared to have been orchestrated by Kemp's office. That he only won by such a small margin even with all of his apparent cheating indicates the race should have probably gone the other way.

Republicans don't actually believe in democracy. They lost in Wisconsin and the lame duck GOP is already talking about taking power away from the governor's office before the Dem gets there. Republicans are scum.

Republicans are scum.

Didn't they do that in Virginia (IIRC) a few years ago?

In any case, not a day goes by that the Repubs and their deplorable base don't reaffirm their status as scum.

"He purged 320,000 people from the voter rolls."

What percentage incorrectly?

I mean, if thousands of folks showed up at the GA polls and got turned away, wouldn't we have seen interviews from one of the gazillion media outlets? Where are all the folks affected by this purge?

As a white person, who lives in a white part of town or an urban area.... I've never waited more than 10 minutes to cast a ballot. The idea that people in Georgia had to wait HOURS to cast a ballot... is voter suppression enough.

Put the Cosmo down or stop posting. Danforth was responding to Speak's #2.

I'll give you my guess at an answer. I read an article that did the math based on GA state and federal law timing for voter list maintenance. It ties to the the spike in registrations in 2008. Thus it's possible to conclude a lot were one election registrations. Of course, there's the actually moved or dead, also.

After he received the list, Palast said he analyzed it and discovered that 340,134 voters were purged when they shouldn't have been. To do this, he consulted experts who cross-referenced voter data with a number of other databases including cell phone bills and tax filings to see if, in fact, any of these voters had actually moved. Many had not. A list of the purged voters' names is available on Palast's website. While it is too late for them to register for the upcoming midterm elections, they are still eligible to re-register for the 2020 presidential election.

From the Rolling Stones article posted above.

One person does a full blow investigation. One pulls something straight from the ass.

Chuckle. Palast, Crosscheck conspiracy theorist extraordinaire. I'm not a fan of his on this issue as I've well documented. In common DR lingo, Next!

I know they tried to in North Carolina recently, and that a lot of it was struck down in court, but it probably depends on state law and the Wisconsin Supreme Court is full of partisan Republicans.

People here wil go ------- if they try to do it. Wisconsin is about to get interesting.

NOW I AM INTERESTED in every vote being counted.

Seems "forcefully" pre-mature.

Well he IS in charge of counting the votes. So he easily can declare himself the winner.

What a great plan! Run for a public office and be the one in charge of your own election.

Excellent plan! Corrupt as hell but an excellent plan nonetheless.
