Stacey Abrams is fighting for votes in Georgia while the campaign for Brian Kemp is claiming he is the winner. Reportedly, there are several counties whose votes have not been counted in Georgia. Now five Georgia voters have filed a lawsuit against Kemp who is also the secretary of state, which means he is supervising the election.

According to NBC News, five Georgia voters have filed a lawsuit against Kemp in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, which asks to stop him from being involved in the election results. The lawsuit states, “Defendant’s clear bias in favor of his own candidacy demonstrates the truth of the axiom that no man may be the judge in his own case… This Court should not permit Defendant Kemp to resolve the outcome of the elections in which he is a candidate under those circumstances.”

Kemp spokeswoman Candice Broce responded, “This twelfth-hour stunt will not distract us from fulfilling our responsibilities and working with county officials to ensure a secure, accessible, and fair election for all eligible Georgians.”

Laurence Schwartzol of Protect Democracy, a nonpartisan nonprofit, who is a lawyer for the voters said, “This lawsuit is all about a fundamental unfairness — to have Kemp run the rules of this election, where Secretary Kemp has showed he misused his office in hyper-partisan way.”

Even former President Jimmy Carter called on Kemp to resign from his position as secretary of state, but he refused. Kemp has denied all accusations of voter suppression, despite several lawsuits.

As NewsOne reported, Kemp’s campaign claimed he won the election. However, the Associated Press, NBC and CNN have not called the race for him.

The Abrams campaign responded with, “Our opponent has had his office declare himself the victor and we do not accept that.” They continued, “They are trying to force an outcome … without proof … and expecting everyone to go along with it.”

It’s good to see that Georgia voters are fighting with Stacey Abrams.
