The political organization founded by Stacey Abrams, Fair Fight Action, is the subject of a complaint with the IRS for allegedly breaking election laws to support Abrams’ political ambitions.
Among the items listed in the complaint are: “$100,000 worth of Facebook ads featuring Abrams, an advertisement for a ‘Stacey Abrams Fundraiser’ that featured Fair Fight Action’s logo, travel for Abrams’ post-election ‘thank you’ tour of Georgia and a professionally produced ‘highlight reel’ of Abrams footage on the group’s website.”
According to the AP: “If [Abrams] runs for federal office and it is determined that the group laid the groundwork for her campaign, donation limitations could retroactively apply.”
It’s totally okay for an organization featuring Abrams as the current chairwoman to raise unlimited sums of money and then spend hundreds of thousands of dollars promoting her as she ponders running for federal office… right?
To be truthful, it seems the post-2018 fawning is already going to Stacey’s head. Between jet-setting to Europe, continuing to claim she somehow actually won the Georgia Governor’s race, blaming thousands of dollars of liens on contractors, and now this – her behavior demonstrates a clear belief she’s playing by a different set of rules.
“The more layers of the onion that are peeled back on Stacey Abrams’ shadowy political network, the more it will stink. If Abrams thinks she’s too good to abide by the campaign finance laws the rest of the country adheres to, she will be quickly disabused of that notion.” -SLF Communications Director Jack Pandol
