Jason Weaver is a Texas native who was a political strategist for former president George H.W. Bush and a presidential campaign adviser to the John McCain. It doesn’t get anymore Republicans than this and he said about Brian Kemp, “This hack
@BrianKempGA is the next ‘governor*’ of Georgia. But he cheated & undermined democracy every step of the way. @staceyabrams should be governor, but isn’t due to actions that can’t be tolerated. She has a bright future. We need a new, enforceable Voting Rights Act. Now!”
Yesterday, Abrams acknowledged that Kemp won the election, but she did not concede, saying, “I acknowledge that former Secretary of State Brian Kemp will be certified as the victor in the 2018 gubernatorial election, but to watch an elected official who claims to represent the people in this state baldly pin his hopes for election on suppression of the people’s democratic right to vote has been truly appalling.”
There were countless lawsuits filed against Kemp, who was the secretary of state, which means he oversaw his own election. Even former President Jimmy Carter called on Kemp to resign. He eventually resigned 2 days after the election, but many people felt it was too late and his voter suppression tactics had already done serious damage.
Kudos to Jason Weaver for speaking out against corruption in his own party.
