Federal judge strikes down Stacey Abrams's lawsuit claiming voter intimidation in Georgia

A federal judge ruled Tuesday that True the Vote's challenge to the eligibility of registered voters in Georgia did not amount to voter intimidation, Breitbart reported. The lawsuit was brought by Fair Fight Action, which was founded by twice-failed Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. 

U.S. District Judge Steve Jones found in favor of True the Vote's right to call into question the legitimacy of 250,000 registered voters in the state. Although he's a left-leaning judge, Jones ruled that there was "no evidence any voter was intimidated, coerced, or threatened in voting."

True the Vote's founder, Catherine Engelbrecht, said the ruling was a "resounding vindication" that they could not engage in "lawfare" against them. "Today’s ruling sends a clear message to those who would attempt to control the course of our nation through lawfare and intimidation. American citizens will not be silenced," she said.

The case stemmed from the organization's challenge during the 2021 U.S. Senate runoff. Many localities rejected True the Vote's request to verify their voter rolls and Democratic Sens. Ralph Warnock and Jon Ossof prevailed anyway.

However, the Peach State's GOP-controlled legislature has since allowed for the examination of an unlimited number of names on the ballot. This has resulted in some 100,000 registrations being challenged, especially in Democrat-majority areas surrounding Atlanta.

Abrams' organization has been sufficiently triggered by such actions. "Fair Fight is disappointed that Georgians and voters nationwide must continue to wait for our federal courts to impose accountability in the face of widespread and mounting voter intimidation efforts," Chianti Stewart-Reid, executive director for Fair Fight Action, said in a statement.

"In recent years, we have witnessed the erosion of our rights unfold on a national level. And the courts do not consistently provide the vindication and protection we seek," Chianti Stewart-Reid added.

Georgia has been at the center of controversy over voter security since the 2020 presidential election, the Associated Press reported. In March 2021, a law requiring voters to show ID was panned by Democrats and their allies as somehow being a voter suppression effort.

President Joe Biden was an outspoken opponent, as were several corporations, including Major League Baseball, which moved the All-Star game out of the Peach State. MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred made the decision in part as a stance against systemic racism.

"I have decided that the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year’s All-Star Game and MLB draft. Major League Baseball fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box," Manfred said.

Of course, there's no evidence that people of any race have a hard time obtaining any kind of state-issued identification card. Still, leftists never let the facts get in the way of a good narrative.

Biden similarly went with the racism assertion in his own commentary about states tightening their voting procedures. "I’m convinced that we’ll be able to stop this, because it is the most pernicious thing—this makes Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle," Biden said when the Georgia law was passed, Fox News reported.

"This is gigantic what they’re trying to do and it cannot be sustained," the president added. This came at a time when Democrats were attempting to nationalize easier voting "access," which incidentally included measures that invite more fraud and abuse.

If the left were concerned about the rights of Americans to have their votes counted, they'd be equally as concerned about whether the ballots that are cast are fraudulent. The fact that they shy away from any effort to do so speaks volumes.
