Hollywood and other liberals from out of state threw tons of cash at her campaigns.

Now her campaign is claiming that they can’t pay employees and vendors. Where are all her rich donors now?

Abrams amassed over $100 million in her failed bid to unseat Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R.), but suffered cash flow issues in the final weeks of the campaign. Speaking to Axios, two-time Abrams campaign manager Lauren Groh-Wargo blamed the money problems on a “cavalcade of negative press and negative polling” in the final months of the campaign.

“We did not just lose, we got blown out,” she told Axios. “It was the most sub-optimal situation to be in. And we will be dealing with that situation for some time.”

The Abrams campaign has resorted to selling its donor and voter contact databases to pay down its debt, and it abruptly cut off salary payments to most of its 180 full-time staffers just one week after the November election. Former campaign staffers said they were shocked that Abrams couldn’t pay their salaries after having raised so much money.

“I figured, $100 million? They should be able to pay me until December,” a former Abrams staffer told Axios.

What happened to the mountains of cash her campaign had?

It’s a good thing that she will not be the governor of Georgia.
