Beto O’Rourke Claims Georgia’s Stacey Abrams Lost ‘Rigged’ Election

Beto O'Rourke, Stacey Abrams and Andrew Gillum

Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D) [1] (shown above left) joined his fellow 2018 loser Stacey Abrams (above center) in claiming Republicans succeeded in rigging her election. (Democrat Andrew Gillum [2], who lost the Florida gubernatorial race this past fall to Republican Ron DeSantis, is above right.)

In an appearance with the ladies of “The View,” O’Rourke made a claim previously described by Democrats as “a direct threat [3] to our democracy.”

He accused Republican Brian Kemp, [4] who defeated Abrams to become Georgia governor, of suppressing votes and fixing the process to benefit himself.

“The grace with which she met that defeat on an unfair, un-level playing field with the secretary of State perhaps rigging, in part, that election … is inspiring stuff at a time that our democracy is so badly broken,” O’Rourke claimed.

It’d be slightly more inspiring to see Abrams act with a modicum of class and admit she lost the election — by over 54,000 votes [5].

Surely there will be media outrage over these comments, just as there was with President Donald Trump’s insinuating he lost the popular votes due to illegal ballots being cast, right?

O’Rourke must be getting a break because of his white privilege.

Last week, Abrams was mocked for insisting she isn’t delusional [10], then claiming she secretly must have won the election.

“If you want to run for office again, you’ve got to concede the election so that everyone knows that you’re a good sport,” Abrams told a crowd in Houston.

“I am not.”

Clearly, neither is Beto.

What say you, Nancy Pelosi? Aside from Hillary Clinton’s proclamation that not accepting election results is a clear sign of an imploding democracy, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is also manufacturing a crisis over concerns that the president won’t accept the 2020 outcome [19].

“We have to inoculate against that. We have to be prepared for that,” she advised. [19]

Looks like you need to innoculate against two significant members of your own party.
