Stacey Abrams still hasn’t accepted the fact that she lost the race for governor in Georgia in 2018. She has attributed her loss to voter suppression.
During a recent forum, she suggested that if this pervasive voter suppression isn’t stopped, Russia will eventually control the United States government.

Abrams Warns of Russian Takeover in 2030 If Voter Suppression Not Addressed
Failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams warned Friday that if voter suppression wasn’t addressed properly in 2020, “we will be having a very different conversation, potentially in Russian, in 2030.”…
At a national security forum, Abrams reeled off a list of recent laws she said were being pushed to disenfranchise people, particularly those of color, across the United States, and encouraged the audience to educate itself on the issue.
“There’s no more fundamental and national-security crisis than the theft of our elections, not simply through Russian hacking, which is incredibly important and we have to pay attention to it, but by the suppression of the very voters whose voices could change the direction of our country,” she said.
Suppression of the vote is “pervasive” and “insidious,” she said, because it convinces people it’s a “user error.”
“If we do not secure our democracy and ensure that every vote counts in 2020, we will be having a very different conversation, possibly in Russian, in 2030,” she said, to cheers and applause.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, Abrams is pondering a run for president for 2020.

Stacey Abrams: ‘I am going to look at the 2020 presidential election’
Friday, at an event hosted by the Council on Foreign Relations, former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams declined to say whether she would be running for president in 2020, but said that she was “going to look at the 2020 presidential election.”
“I’m looking at executive level opportunities, and that means that I am going to look at the 2020 presidential election,” she said.
Following gasps from the audience, Abrams laughed, and said, “Stop. Stop. I didn’t announce anything. We have an amazing crop of candidates running, but as I have tried to articulate, this is early.”
She added: “I want to see what these candidates talk about. I think a number of them have been talking about what needs to be done…my goal is to think about whether I should be a part of this conversation.”
How can anyone take her seriously when she still hasn’t accepted the outcome of 2018?
