Stacey Abrams 'Observes' Elections in Nigeria, but She's in Trouble Back Here

Democrats are fond of spouting off about “election deniers.”

Yet they don’t acknowledge the “election denialism” on their side. Perhaps one of the most obvious of those is Stacey Abrams, who ran for governor of Georgia in 2018 and refused to accept that she lost, handily. She tried again in November of 2022 and lost by an even wider margin. But she said that she was “likely to run again.”


What’s funny is that even though she cast all kinds of doubts about elections in Georgia and all kinds of nonsense about Republicans trying to suppress votes, she just went to Nigeria as an international observer in their elections. If she can’t be straight about what’s going on here, why would anyone want her to be an observer anywhere? She couldn’t even observe her election correctly.

Here she is being interviewed and praising the process of the election there by Al Jazeera reporter Mohammed Jamjoom.

Ironically, even as she said favorable things, the opposition is upset with how the elections were conducted. The Progressive Party candidate is the projected winner. Meanwhile, the main opposition parties want to have a new election, saying the vote was affected by violence and rigging. There were allegedly violent attacks and voter intimidation at some of the polls.

But that wasn’t the only Stacey Abrams news of the day. Abrams may have something to answer for here when she gets back.

The Georgia secretary of state has opened an investigation into Abrams’ “voting rights charity,” the New Georgia Project, for “financial irregularities.” Abrams founded the organization in 2013.


The investigation comes after several Free Beacon reports on the alleged financial mismanagement by former New Georgia Project executives. Accounting and legal experts have raised questions about the legality of the New Georgia Project’s latest tax filings. As investigations get underway, authorities will issue subpoenas to parties affiliated with the New Georgia Project, a source with knowledge of the state’s actions said.

A spokesman for the Georgia secretary of state confirmed the investigation but declined to comment further. The New Georgia Project did not respond to a request for comment.

We’ve reported on some of the problems with the New Georgia Project in the past.

The New Georgia Project and its affiliated New Georgia Project Action Fund have raised $54.7 million since 2020.

The Free Beacon also found discrepancies in their financial disclosures, including a “mysterious half-million-dollar consulting payment to a charity run in part by the brother of former New Georgia Project CEO Nsé Ufot, who was later fired for undisclosed reasons,” as well as paying zero payroll taxes in 2020, which the Free Beacon termed “an impossibility barring extensive criminal conduct.”

So it sounds like she could be facing some big problems there.

This is on top of the group already being looked into by the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission for allegedly illegally working to elect Abrams when she ran in 2018.


But if you truly want to know why she should never be governor or any other position, and why she typifies Democratic thought, look no further than what happened with her campaign money. She sucked in an enormous amount of money for her campaign for governor, over $113 million, mostly from leftists outside of Georgia. As we reported, she blew a ton of money on ridiculous things and ended up leaving her staffers on the hook and not knowing if they could pay their rent in January. The campaign is now $1.4 million in debt in monies owed to vendors. Her opponent, Gov. Brian Kemp, raised $90 million and still has over $5.2 million. And he won. That says it all right there.
