Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams received $150,000 in personal income from a mysterious limited liability company, Fox News reported Wednesday.
Abrams in her March financial disclosure said she is on the board of Dream Project Partners Inc., which paid her $150,000 between 2021 and 2022, according to the Fox report by Washington Free Beacon alums Joe Schoffstall and Cameron Cawthorne. The company appears to have no online presence, only appearing in Delaware business records that do not include the names of any managers or board members.
The Georgia Democrat, who is best known for falsely claiming she won the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election, is on the boards of other controversial organizations, the Free Beacon has reported. While she says she opposes defunding the police, she cochaired an anti-police fund and remains on the board of a foundation that has repeatedly expressed support for abolishing police.
Abrams, who in 2018 ran as an unabashed progressive and last month blasted “out-of-state corporations and hedge funds,” has cozy relationships with shadowy millionaires and corporations. Much of her fundraising haul this year came from “wealthy coastal Democrats,” Axios reported. Abrams’s left-wing nonprofit, meanwhile, is bankrolled by a foreign billionaire’s dark money group, the Free Beacon reported.
Abrams’s campaign did not respond to Fox’s multiple requests for comment.
This marks the latest chapter in the disturbing Stacey Abrams story. We last highlighted her dubious actions about a month ago.
Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is famous for calling voter ID laws the new Jim Crow. Her heedless charges of racism over virtually any attempt to prevent voter fraud chased the MLB All-Star game from Atlanta and earned her the sobriquet “fount of disinformation” here at National Review. So how about letting Stacey Abrams run your child’s civics class? Sounds absurd, but that’s what’s on tap if Abrams becomes Georgia’s next governor.
