Stacey Abrams faced a fierce backlash on social media Sunday after images emerged showing the Democrat mask-free surrounded by school children forced to wear face coverings.
“Stacey Abrams wants state government mask mandates for Georgians and their children,” said Gov. Brian Kemp. “But it looks like they wouldn’t apply when she’s attending a photo op.”
“It is shameful that our opponents are using a Black History Month reading event for Georgia children as the impetus for a false political attack, and it is pitiful and predictable that our opponents continue to look for opportunities to distract from their failed records when it comes to protecting public health during the pandemic,” Abrams wrote in a statement shared on her Instagram account.
“This pathetic, transparent, and silly attack is beneath anyone who claims he wants to lead Georgia,” concluded the Democrat.
