I guess people can say what they want but she stated herself it was not a concession. Abrams said, “I acknowledge that former Secretary of State Brian Kemp will be certified the victor in the 2018 gubernatorial elections,” adding, “This speech is not a concession.”

“Power cedes nothing without a demand” Frederick Douglas 1857 There was no concession! Brian Kemp will be the next Governor of Georgia but this isn’t over. We’ve had a 242 year fight over disenfranchisement of “others” (blacks, women, immigrants etc) or any one who is not a white male landowner. As soon as I get the information I’m contributing to the lawsuit Abrams plans to file.

I wrote my General Assembly representation late Friday morning to urge that Abrams concede.

What a shame that the only way Lyin’ Kemp could become governor was to disenfranchise voters.

Hope you all are happy.

Very very happy. And even more happy that folks like you and the execrable Abrams are mad/sad.

A great day in Georgia!

No matter what this Dwight-from-The-Office lookalike posted in his headline, it was specifically not a concession.

C’mon man. Focus on content, drop the unnecessary insults.
Or at the very least post a picture of yourself so we can comment on who you look like.

It’s not like I’ve never insulted appearance. It’s not something I’m proud of. But Insulting people in their own house? That’s something the Jesters do.
