Oprah Slams Racist Robo-Call Impersonating Her in Georgia Election

Tears A Trump supporter cries as he arrives for a campaign rally at Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport in Belgrade Montana

'I just want to say: Jesus don't like ugly...

Georgia's centrally managed elections system lacks a verifiable paper trail that can be audited in case of problems.

Kemp, a 54-year-old businessman who has been secretary of state since 2010, has embraced President Donald Trump as he tries to extend GOP dominance in a state that hasn't elected a Democrat to its top job since 1998.

"This is yet another example of abuse of power by an unethical secretary of state", Rebecca DeHart, executive director of the Georgia Democratic Party, said on Sunday.

Republican Brian Kemp on Monday stood by his decision to level claims of attempted hacking at Democrats, turning their objections - and the concerns of nonpartisan civil rights groups - into an election eve selling point.

The Republican Secretary of State of Georgia accused his midterm rivals of attempting to hack the state's voter registration system just two days before the crucial election. The all-caps headline says: "AFTER FAILED HACKING ATTEMPT, SOS LAUNCHES INVESTIGATION INTO GEORGIA DEMOCRATIC PARTY".

Kemp has been previously criticized by his opponent for allegedly using his role as Secretary of State to suppress women and minority voters. Ballot access and election integrity flared up in the final weekend after a private citizen alerted the Georgia Democratic Party and a private attorney of potential vulnerability in the online voter database Kemp manages.

The results of the governor's race will tell us everything about what that future is going to look like - in the state of Georgia and around the country.

Kemp has been trying to true the vote in Georgia, removing dead people from the rolls and also trying to remove the names of those who haven't voted in a while.

The racist ploy was in response to Oprah actively campaigning for Abrams in Georgia.

So, rather than hack it, Democrats were anxious about protecting a voter data base that Kemp has previously failed to keep secure.

"I see that same potential in Stacey Abrams". Republicans have successfully shut out Democrats from holding any statewide office in Georgia since 2010. A representative for the Department of Homeland Security confirmed the agency had been notified, but it deferred to Georgia officials for details.

Edgardo Cortés, Virginia's former elections commissioner who is now an election security adviser for the Brennan Center for Justice, told the AJC that Sunday's announcement was "bizarre" and said the timing of it is "problematic".

On Friday, a federal judge ruled that the state must relax it's "exact match" voter registration restrictions, allowing more than 3,000 people originally barred from voting to cast their ballot on Tuesday.

A lifelong Georgian, Kemp became a small business owner after graduating from the University of Georgia, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture.

In Snellville, Georgia, voters took turns sitting in children's chairs as they waited for hours, according to the Associated Press, and in Atlanta, people waited in the rain in a line at one site that snaked around the building.
