With rising crime rates and the rash of mass shootings that have occurred recently, it is more important than ever to support our police.
A new report has just surfaced on Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams that will hurt her on that front.
Abrams is a board member of a foundation that has been linked to supporting the defund the police movement around the country.
Abolishing the Police
Recent state filings still list Abrams as a board member and governing person of the Marguerite Casey Foundation, a Seattle-based organization.
This is a recent tweet from that organization…
Grant recipient @DreamDefenders + partners launched the Doctors Within Borders Urgent Care Clinic as part of a larger movement to create direct services and sites of intervention in police violence and prison systems. #DefundthePolice https://t.co/XTMhMEixev

The group also used #DefundthePolice when it shared a WaPo story about “the hidden billion-dollar cost of repeated police misconduct.”
In February, the group used #AbolishthePolice in another story about the “Prison Industrial Complex in Atlanta.”
Here is another tweet promoting abolishing the police and critical race theory…
We're so excited for our event w/ Dr. Kelley + @DereckaPurnell on Thursday! They'll discuss her book #BecomingAbolitionists, how decolonization movements have informed police abolition movements and the necessity of an abolitionist future ✨ Register here: https://t.co/9WTMjFieRp https://t.co/420wVv8qjZ pic.twitter.com/6dUPbjNadY

Of course, she will deny all of it, but these are the facts.
If Governor Kemp’s people are smart, they are going through this account with a fine-toothed comb right now to hit her hard during their first debate.
She must be made to explain this nonsense.
The decision for Georgians seems pretty easy to me.
