Muller.

"[Stacey] Abrams mulls asking a court to order a second vote in Georgia governor’s race" (WaPo).
[Abrams] would rely on a provision in Georgia law that has never been utilized in such a high-profile contest. It allows losing candidates to challenge results based on “misconduct, fraud or irregularities . . . sufficient to change or place in doubt the results.”...
Unofficial returns show Kemp with about 50.2 percent of the more than 3.9 million votes cast. To avoid a runoff with Abrams, he must win at least 50 percent of the vote. He has about 18,000 more votes than necessary to win outright.

To prevail in a court challenge, Abrams would have to demonstrate that irregularities were widespread enough that at least 18,000 Georgians either had their ballots thrown out or were not allowed to vote.
UPDATE: Abrams gives up, because "The law currently allows no further viable remedy," but...
“Let’s be clear: This is not a speech of concession because concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true or proper,” Ms. Abrams said amid a blistering attack on Mr. Kemp’s record as the state’s chief elections regulator and on the balloting process in Georgia. “As a woman of conscience and faith, I cannot concede that.”

JRoberts said...

I live in the Atlanta metro area and I'm pretty frustrated by this.

Erick Erickson on our local talk radio has had some interesting commentary on this race. Evidently, Abrams and the Dems raised and spent BIG, BIG money on data mining software that was sold as "fool proof" and would not only delivery the Georgia statehouse, but would be the basis of delivering the White House in 2020.

If Abrams loses this race, it damages the credibility of this strategy for 2020 and may cause major donors to doubt their "investments" in Georgia and the national strategy.

0.2% of 3.9 million works out to 7,800 votes for me.
The Abrams campaign is just trying to get Kemp below the 50.00% threshold - one way or another - so that they can claim a runoff election is required by law(fare).

Achilles said...

Democracy will only work if all participants respect the process.

Democrats clearly use democracy and do not respect the institution.

Every race in the last weeks since the election has closed toward the Democrat candidate. 12 seats have flipped since the election in the house and 2 in the senate.

At some point people will realize that they will have to fight for the republic or we will lose it.

mikee said...

Amazing that these shenanigans weren't successfully forestalled by the Republican candidate, who himself had the office and authority to do so before the election, by making sure the election system wasn't able to be gamed like it has been.

Republicans aren't facing an opponent in each election, they are facing an ideology without morals, ethics, respect for laws, or anything other than a zeal to achieve power. Up your game, Republicans, or lose.

Yancey Ward said...

From my calculation based on RCP, Kemp is 21,000 votes over the 50% threshold, but maybe I should look at all the candidates than just the top three. If the 21,000 is correct, then Abrams needs to find 21,000 people who claim they would have voted for someone other than Kemp and were denied the vote. This is a nearly impossible thing to actually get, but we all know the right judge is all you really need.

Ok, 18,000 is the right number based on the total ballots reported on Ballotpedia.

William Chadwick said...

Now Fat Mama Stacey is running an ad urging the recount go on . . . and on, and on . . . presumably until they "find" enough uncounted votes to put her in the governor's mansion. That kind of slick advertising and that amount of air time can't be cheap; but then Darth Soros has deep pockets.

Yancey Ward said...

One thing that is striking about this election is that Republicans do a lousy job of getting early voters to vote Republican. In California alone, the early vote has changed the election day count on at least 6 House seats enough to get a Democrat over the hurdle. I don't think all of this can be fraud, but very lousy turnout work.

William Chadwick said...

"Abrams thought that the 'Oprah factor' would put her over top. . . ." Not to mention the Black Panthers marching in support while brandishing the kind of military style firearms she has said she wants to ban.

Yancey Ward said...

You see this in Arizona where McSally had a large net win for people who voted at that the polls, but a large net loss in early vote. Again, I don't think this is probably fraud, but rather that the Democrats work harder and better at getting people to fill out early ballots, especially people who wouldn't otherwise vote at all.

Leland said...

at least 18,000

A bit more than that since I suspect even in the most Adams friendly precincts, Kemp won a good percentage of votes. Aside, if 18,000 votes were misplaced in Adams friendly precincts, what does that say the people who support her. 18,000 would need to be a percentage of the number of voters/votes that might have been mishandled. If giving her the benefit of 80% of such votes, you would need closer to 22,500, or 27,000 if giving her 2/3rds benefit.

JAORE said...

Or find a friendly judge that takes allegation as fact.

Old and busted: It's un-American to refuse to accept the results of an election.

traditionalguy said...

The contention is absentee votes which are the easiest ones to manufacture at the last minute from the dead and the missing people. The law only asks for the voters date of birth, address and a signature. Abrams contended that the ones with a missing DOB and without a matching handwriting signature have to count too. A judge agreed. Finally Abrams contends that the unsigned ones should be counted. That was against the Statute and the judge would not re-write it for her.

The idea of vote fraud is a total hoax. But Abrams wants to blame a non-existent KKK for losing.

steve uhr said...

Not arguing for a revote, but it was a major dirty trick for Kemp to publish on the sec state website two days before the election that the dems were being criminally investigated for hacking the voting computer system. First of all, my understanding is that there was no such evidence. Second, even if there was a legitimate basis to initiate such an investigation, the investigation should have been confidential at least until after the election, esp given Kemp's conflicted situation. A crummy move by Kemp.

Dang the Dems have been pouring money into Georgia races--this one and another one in 2016 where there was an attractive Beto O'Rourke type candidate for some Congressional Rep seat in Georgia. He was a sort of "can't miss" type of candidate. But he missed.

I'm certain that Al Sharpton told Ms. Abrams that those goldanged ignorant Georgia crackers who didn't vote her in just made a mistake.

It seems the Democrats have made major advancements on combining Social Media along with on the ground actions to increase turnout.

Billy Hill said...

The Abrams campaign invested heavily in advertising on social media before the election, but they haven't let up since. I've been inundated on Facebook and YouTube with ads urging me to contact them if I noticed any irregularities or had trouble voting. Whoever said that the buried lede is that she came within a whisker of winning is right. But based on ads alone, she probably had 10 times as much in her campaign war chest, and a close look at some of the counties in and around Atlanta would probably reveal plenty of "irregularities", in her favor. The election officials in those counties just seem to have the same competence level as those in Broward and Palm Beach counties in Florida, and didn't manufacture quite as many fraudulent votes as they needed to put her over the top or in runoff territory. They more than likely underestimated the fierceness of the opposition to her that drove record turnout in the rest of the state.

A Democrat filing a lawsuit saying voting irregularities exist enough to invalidate an election? WOW!

I have a solution. Election day is Election day- no mail in ballots or early voting, except for limited categories of absentee voters. Mandatory state issued voter ID in order to vote. And voters must be registered no less than 30 days prior to the election.

Seems to me that at one time rules like this existed and there were fewer problems with elections.

No. Both parties assert irregularities, but do so in their own interests.

Democrats assert that efforts to clean up voter rolls inevitably remove valid names in the process. The numbers are minor, but well documented.

Republicans assert that without efforts to clean up voter rolls, people vote illegally. They point to a smorgasbord of problems with voter registration drives and a smattering of actual prosecutions.

When a party basically does all the work in acquiring the ballots -- for people who do not vote -- and then sticks the ballots in front of the putative "voter" and tells him or her to fill them out a certain way, and then takes the ballots and does the work of submitting them, what do you call that if not fraud?

Mulling over Althouse's title and the ultimate subject of this piece, Stacey Abrams - I am puzzled.

Almost 50 years here and have never heard jokes about the dead voting, vote early vote often and so on.

Never a problrm with fraud or perception of fraud or accusations of fraud.

Difficult as we make it we always get 70%+ turnout.

Not just registered voters. 70%+ of voting age population.

Ignorance is Bliss said...

steve uhr-

My guess ( not my understanding, just a guess ) is that someone noticed a vulnerability on the voter info database, and let the Democrats know about it. Someone in the Democrat party tried it out to see if it really was an issue, while also passing the info on to the state to push them to fix it. When the state went to investigate, they checked access logs, and found illegal access from a Democrat party IP address ( due to them checking the existence of the vulnerability ).

Of course, "checking for a vulnerability" is not a legal excuse for illegally accessing a website.

But all that is just a guess.

"I think this a rather dramatic mischaracterization of Arizona voting. 75% of the votes are cast by mail. Is that what you mean by "early vote"? I suspect that the people that vote in person are older and have more free time."

In what way is it a mischaracterization, Henry? By "early vote", I mean people who vote before election day, in the case of Arizona, mail-in ballots. On election day, McSally was well behind in the initial early vote counts that went up just minutes after the polls closed- these were the early/mail in votes that were collected prior to election day. As Arizona counted the election day vote, she took the lead in the state, and actually caught Sinema in Maricopa County until they started counting the backlog of early votes, where, again, Sinema's advantage showed itself. In short, the Democrat won by a large margin the mail in vote, and McSally won by a large margin the election day vote at the polls. Republicans need to figure out a way to do better, and to address Mark above, perhaps the Republicans should learn from the Democrats how to handle mail-in voting. If they don't, they will continue to slide.

Mr. Majestyk said...

I am concerned that mail-in voting -- without any demonstrable inability to vote in person on Election Day -- is just an easy avenue for Democratic Party election fraud. I would rather have absentee voting only in cases where the voter will attest to being unable to vote on Election Day, and making Election Day a Saturday, so voting in person is easier.

Time for regular cleaning of the voter rolls. Every state needs to require proper ID to vote. And its a must to go back to paper ballots.

It's like we don't actually want these elections to be on the up and up. If we can't clean this up, we don't deserve a republic.

Abrams might well have won, but the juxtaposition of Abrams coming out for banning AR-type rifles while Black Panthers matched in her support sporting semi-automatic long guns. Not AR-15s — one of the Panthers has an FN SCAR, which is chambered in the .30 caliber NATO round. It is capable of punching right through a policeman’s “bulletproof” vest. There’s also a semiautomatic 12 gauge shotgun, and an AK-47 in the hands of the marchers.

California has the largest number of illegal immigrants in the United States, with an estimated 2.4 million unauthorized immigrants making up about 6.3 percent of the state’s total population, according to the Pew Research Center. Given the size of the Illegal population, fraud is quite easy. As a country it is our fault! We've allowed scum politicians to control this system.

When I voted I wasn't even asked for an ID? I used to remember back in the '70s being asked for an ID, absent one, was not allowed to vote. Today, don't trust any politician Right or Left, especially lawyers.

On Instapundit, there's a quote from Fat Mama Stacey: "I'm not conceding, but I recognize him [Brian Kamp] as the victor." I used to refer to her as "Fat, stupid-looking gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams," but if the quote is accurate, she ain'r just stupid-LOOKING, if you catch my drift. Yale, her alma mater, must have an affirmative action program.

By the way, a lot of the anti-Kemp tv ads that the Soros Gang inundated Georgia television with focused on one of Kemp's early ads showing him grilling a young guy purportedly dating one of Kemp's daughters. Kemp is holding a double-barreled shotgun pointed in the guy's generak direction, but not aimed directly at him. (You can tell because the twin muzzles are visible, which they would not be if pointed directly at the young man.) It was a mildly humorous riff on the traditional shotgun-wielding protective dad theme, but "liberals" apparently went bonkers over it (or at least, as I suspect, pretended to). One outraged woman in the anti-Kemp ad says, "He pointed a gun at a teenager. Who DOES that???"

"Liberals" angry that someone is (allegedly) pointing a gun at someone else. Priceless.
