Stacey Abrams, failed gubernatorial candidate in the state of Georgia, was doing all kinds of bragging about how her campaign brought in a massive fundraising haul of more than $100 million in the 2022 election cycle, but now the campaign is saying it actually owes money and revealed that staffers were cut from pay not long after the election in November. Well, how about that? A liberal who lies through her teeth. I didn’t think they actually existed. Like a unicorn.
That’s sarcasm, by the way. Lying is like breathing for Democrats. It’s so natural they don’t even have to think about it.
“The Democrat’s two-time campaign manager, Lauren Groh-Wargo, told Axios the team owes more than $1 million in debt to vendors after Abrams lost to Gov. Brian Kemp (R-GA) by nearly 300,000 votes,” the Daily Wire said.
“We did not just lose, we got blown out,” Groh-Wargo went on to say to the news outlet. “It was the most sub-optimal situation to be in. And we will be dealing with that situation for some time.”
“Although Groh-Wargo said a ‘cavalcade of negative press and negative polling’ was a burden on fundraising in the final stretch, Abrams had outraised Kemp via her campaign and leadership committee, One Georgia, with a total of $105.3 million through October 25, according to finance reports cited by GPB. Kemp, through his campaign and leadership committee, Georgians First, raised $81.5 million up to that point in time,” the report stated.
“The GBP report said the total amount raised between the two sides was broke the previous record. Together they raised four times the amount Abrams and Kemp did when they first faced off in 2018. Financial disclosures for the final quarter of this year are due next month,” the Daily Wire continued.
Abrams has been seen as a sort of rising star inside the Democratic Party, despite the fact she’s now lost two races. Heck, folks within the party have even stated that she would have been an excellent choice as a running mate alongside Joe Biden when he announced his candidacy for the White House back in 2020. Abrams, who formerly served in the Georgia House of Representatives, has been heavily criticized by the GOP and conservative media for refusing to concede to Kemp during their first battle for the governor’s seat.
A former campaign staffer for Abrams spoke with 11Alive, which is an affiliate of NBC located in Atlanta that most of her 2022 team of close to 180 people received their last checks on November 15, which was just a single week after Kemp won reelection. The individual did point out that health benefits went through the rest of the month and the human resources department for the campaign helped members get new jobs. A report from Axios went on to reveal that staff members working for Kemp were paid through the month of November and received bonuses.
“If we had ended the campaign with enough money to pay staff through January, and we lost — I think there would be pieces coming out about why does [the campaign] have like $2 million in bank,” the former staffer said during the interview with 11Alive. “I think the campaign was as transparent about things as it possibly could be.”
There was one person who worked on Abrams’ staff who was not at all pleased with how things turned out.
“I figured, $100 million? They should be able to pay me until December,” the individual said.
