During the Georgia gubernatorial debate on Monday night, Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams, a noted proponent of defunding the police, wanted the audience to know that she actually does have some support from law enforcement officers —she just won’t name them.
From Fox News:
Over 100 sheriffs in the Peach State condemned Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams over her ties to a foundation that supports defunding law enforcement as well as her “soft-on-crime policies.”
102 Georgia sheriffs joined Republican Governor Brian Kemp in a Monday press release blasting Abrams over her ties to the Marguerite Casey Foundation.
The Marguerite Casey Foundation is a Seattle-based grantmaking group that has called for the abolition of police. Abrams supported an expanded anti-police initiative from the group shortly after joining its board.
