ABRAMS WALKS ON VOTE TO STOP SEX TRAFFICKING IN GEORGIA
(Athens, GA) – Radical Stacey Abrams has an extreme agenda that will undermine public safety in Georgia. On the campaign trail, she unapologetically advocates for the end to cash bail – a policy recently implemented in California that will flood the streets with criminals. In the State House, Abrams put politics first and intentionally skipped two votes (HB341) to end sex trafficking in Georgia. In response, Kemp for Governor released the following statement:
“Stacey Abrams is a radical, career politician who coddles criminals, protects sex offenders, and attacks our men and women in uniform,” said Cody Hall, Press Secretary. “In the General Assembly, Abrams literally walked on a bi-partisan bill to end sex trafficking. Georgia has the sixth highest number of sex trafficking cases in the nation, but when it came time to punish those who buy and sell our children, Stacey Abrams put her extreme agenda first and was nowhere to be found.
“When it comes to ending sex trafficking, crushing gangs, and punishing criminals, Brian Kemp will put our families ahead of politics. He will always show up and do the right thing. As governor, Brian Kemp will put hardworking Georgians – and our safety – first.”
