Stacey Abrams Is Apparently Now Reduced To An Opening Act

We’ve refrained from paying too much attention to the vulgar and embarrassing musical act Lizzo, which is a corpulent woman of color the appreciation of whom requires an active disdain for the aesthetic rather than a recognition of talent. There are heavyset women who sing well and are delightful performers, and do quite well, but in Lizzo’s case her rolls of fat are put on lurid display and her fans are encouraged to specifically endorse her unhealthy physique along with her open leftist politics.

It’s an actively offensive presentation which wouldn’t be anybody’s business who didn’t want it to be, until this happened…


On a related subject, Stacey Abrams is – like Lizzo – a celebrated corpulent woman of color promoted by corporate media. Abrams was rejected as a candidate for governor of Georgia in 2018 by 55,000 votes and yet made headlines by refusing to acknowledge the defeat.

It was all a grift, of course, and it recently came out exactly what was going on…

The voting rights organization founded by Stacey Abrams spent more than $25 million over two years on legal fees, mostly on a single case, with the largest amount going to the self-described boutique law firm of the candidate’s campaign chairwoman.

Allegra Lawrence-Hardy, Abrams’ close friend who chaired her gubernatorial campaign both in 2018 and her current bid to unseat Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, is one of two named partners in Lawrence & Bundy, a small firm of fewer than two dozen attorneys.

The firm received $9.4 million from Abrams’ group, Fair Fight Action, in 2019 and 2020, the last years for which federal tax filings are available. Lawrence-Hardy declined to comment on how much her firm has collected from Fair Fight Action in 2021 and 2022 — years in which Fair Fight Action v. Raffensperger, for which Lawrence-Hardy was lead counsel, had most of its courtroom activity.

So what was that case about?

The original complaint included allegations that voting machines were vulnerable to hacking and were switching votes intended for Abrams into votes for Kemp. Fair Fight Action found two voters who said they had to select the button to vote for Abrams four times before the machine’s screen showed a vote for Abrams instead of Kemp. Fair Fight Action removed this allegation in December 2020 in a revised complaint, at the same moment then President Donald Trump was making similar unfounded allegations in his effort to overturn the presidential election results in Georgia.

Abrams is running once again for governor of Georgia, against the same opponent – Republican Brian Kemp – who beat her four years ago, and she’s going to lose by a lot more than 55,000 votes this time. Like Beto O’Rourke she hasn’t particularly stood up well to the test of time and voters have begun to realize she’s neither particularly talented nor particularly honest or sincere. That Abrams has beclowned herself with crazy statements like this hasn’t helped her cause much…

So it’s not going well. So much so that when Lizzo’s concert tour came to Atlanta and Stacey Abrams thought she’d insinuate herself into the act seeing as though Lizzo’s fans are the target audience for what support Abrams has left, she didn’t make it onto the stage with the headline act.

Nope, instead it was the opening act, another less-than-savory musician going by Latto, where Abrams made her appearance. And here’s how that went…

Very dignified, right?

How many of those nice suburban white women Abrams has to have if she’s going to have a hope of winning are really interested in this kind of political shamelessness? The guess here is not many.

It’s bad enough that our entertainment media has become a parade of grotesques. It’s worse than hacks like Abrams have to drag this smut into the public eye with respect to politics.

But anything to keep the grift going, right? After all, Abrams managed to parlay her victim-signaling and fabulism into a cameo role on a Star Trek episode as President of Earth. Who knows what’s next after the voters reject her again?
