GBI launches investigation into allegation of attempted election hack

Nevertheless, Kemp has refused to step down even while being called out for multiple voter suppression tactics to block minority voters while running against Stacey Abrams, who could become the nation's first black female governor.

But Levin said an accusation of tampering with a voter registration system as unverified as Kemp's does a disservice to legitimate efforts to bolster election cybersecurity, which has been a top concern for many states' election officials since 2016, when agents of the Russian government attempted to penetrate the voter files in at least 21 states. But, she said she doesn't want that to drive the outcome.

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 that oversees in his current job as secretary of state.

"This is the magical Negro Oprah Winfrey asking you to make my fellow Negress Stacey Abrams the governor of Georgia", the robo-call begins, before spewing almost 60 seconds of racism coupled with a dash of anti-Semitism. The all-caps headline says: "AFTER FAILED HACKING ATTEMPT, SOS LAUNCHES INVESTIGATION INTO GEORGIA DEMOCRATIC PARTY".

Since the beginning of the election season, voter suppression has been prevalent in the state of Georgia. Recent public polling shows the race between Kemp and Abrams to be neck-and-neck.

Dora Aguillon is from Puerto Rico, her husband is from Mexico, and their kids were born in the U.S. They say tougher immigration rules mean safety and security for America.

Last year, Kemp settled a lawsuit with civil rights organisations over voting rights.

Democrats denied Kemp's claim and ripped the investigation as a "political stunt" from a "desperate" candidate.

Kemp, who is the Republican candidate for governor on Tuesday's ballot, didn't provide evidence linking the Democratic Party to the hacking attempt.

All the while, Brian Kemp, now at 48.5 (within a 3 percent margin of Abrams), tries to keep ahead with a campaign revolving around, amongst other things, eliminating state income taxes on retirement pay for military veterans and giving teachers in Georgia a $5000 pay raise, a move that is estimated to cost $800 Million, including additional expenditures like pension payment, etc.

"I want to thank our President for standing up and fighting for our country and fighting for hard-working Georgians", Kemp said.

Oprah, while leaning against exercise equipment in her Instagram video, said "we know what to do about that - vote tomorrow". According to Capehart, Republicans' racist message comes from President Donald Trump. "You need to vote for us because we're better".

Oprah Winfrey and Georgia Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams greet the audience during a town hall style event at the Cobb Civic Center on November 1, 2018 in Marietta, Georgia.

"Thank you very much, Georgia", he opened.
