Newsflash: No One Is ”Entitled” to Become the Governor of Any State

Stacey Abrams: ‘I Come From A State Where I Was Not Entitled To Become The Governor’ | The Daily Wire

I wonder if she really believes that she’s “entitled” to become Governor. I bet she does. I doubt that was a slip of the tongue. Thank God she’s not Governor with an attitude like that.

She also has a history of, shall we say, problems with the truth:

Abrams has maintained for years that the election was “stolen” from her, even though turnout in Georgia increased in 2018 over the state’s voting average between 1982 and 2014, according to FiveThirtyEight. The black vote in Georgia, however, saw its lowest share of the electorate since 2006 following Abrams’ extensive get-out-the-vote effort in 2020.

Still, Abrams has become a hero on the Left for her claims about voting rights. Earlier this year, she was instrumental in promoting misinformation about the Georgia voting bill that was passed, calling it a “redux of Jim Crow in a suit and tie.” When that misinformation caused the MLB to move its all start game out of Georgia, Abrams denounced the decision.

The Washington Post at the time fact-checked false claims about the bill, some of which Abrams herself had pushed, ultimately finding that the experts it spoke to said “the net effect was to expand the opportunities to vote for most Georgians, not limit them.”

Specifically, the Post found that while Biden and others claimed the new law “ends voting hours early so working people can’t cast their vote after their shift is over.” As the Post noted, the new law does no such thing.

Hmm. Keep this lady as far as possible from a microphone unless you want to embarrass yourself.
