After the 2018 race for governor in Georgia, Democrats argued the election was stolen from their candidate Stacey Abrams. When Republicans argued the same thing about President Trump in Georgia in 2020, they were ridiculed. Now the double standard on election integrity in Georgia is making headlines in the U.S. Senate.
During a committee hearing on Capitol Hill Tuesday, Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz got Stacey Abrams to admit that she thinks the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election was stolen.
Abrams’ testimony and Cruz’s question came during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, which was given an inflammatory title by Senate Democrats – “Jim Crow 2021: The Latest Assault on the Right to Vote.”
