The Georgia gubernatorial election was won by a cheater, according to a top Republican adviser that decided to call out Georgia’s governor-elect Brian Kemp for stealing the election.
On Saturday, John Weaver, a political strategist for former president George H.W. Bush and a presidential campaign adviser to the late John McCain who now works for Ohio’s Republican Gov. John Kasich, took to Twitter to call out Kemp and he did not hold back.
“This hack @BrianKempGA is the next “governor*” of Georgia,” Weaver tweeted. “But he cheated & undermined democracy every step of the way. @staceyabrams should be governor, but isn’t due to actions that can’t be tolerated. She has a bright future. We need a new, enforceable Voting Rights Act. Now!”

Stacey Abrams fought a fair battle and she gained the love of America, but it wasn’t enough to fight against the voter suppression done by Kemp to assure his victory.
On Friday, Abrams announced that she would end her campaign, but she refused to concede to Kemp
“Concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true or proper. As a woman of conscience and faith, I cannot concede,” Abrams said. “I will not concede because the erosion of our democracy is not right.”
