Stacey Abrams lost the 2018 governor election in Georgia. This is a fact, not something that’s up for debate. Yet Abrams refuses to accept the results, and many of her fellow Democrats like Elizabeth Warren agree.
Warren said so this week at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network Convention.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Elizabeth Warren: If a Democrat loses, the election is illegitimate
Democrats are working quietly to bring into the mainstream the narrative that GOP victories are by default illegitimate, thereby weakening and undermining duly elected Republican officials.
It is dangerous stuff — just as dangerous as when President Trump questioned the legitimacy of the 2016 election, which Democrats and the media rightly condemned as a threat to a healthy, functioning republic. But that was when Democrats thought their hold on the White House was a sure thing. It is funny how the shoe ends up on the other foot.
The latest example of Democrats casting doubt on the legitimacy of Republican victories in advance came Friday as 2020 hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., spoke at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network Convention.
“Massive voter suppression prevented Stacey Abrams from becoming the rightful governor of Georgia,” she said, reciting a falsehood that has now become an article of faith in the Democratic Party.

Sen. Warren, 2018 truther: "Massive voter suppression prevented Stacy Abrams from becoming the rightful governor of Georgia."

Stacey Abrams is still out there saying the same thing.
FOX News reports:
Dem Stacey Abrams still not conceding defeat, claims GOP stole Georgia election
Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams questioned the legitimacy of her 2018 loss during an event in New York City on Wednesday, saying she refuses to concede the race to Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, while accusing the GOP of stealing the election.
“Despite the final tally and the inauguration [of Gov. Brian Kemp] and the situation we find ourselves in, I do have a very affirmative statement to make: We won,” she told the crowd at the annual convention of the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network.
Abrams ran as a Democrat and would have been the first African-American woman governor in America had she won. She lost to Kemp by more than 54,000 votes, but has repeatedly refused to concede the outcome.
Remember when Democrats said if Trump did this it would be a threat to democracy?
