The Democratic Party of Georgia said it was blindsided Sunday when Kemp's office announced it had "opened an investigation" into the party on Saturday evening after what it described - without evidence - as "a failed attempt to hack the state's voter registration system". Democrats also have blasted Kemp over 53,000 voter registrations that his office flagged as pending ahead of Tuesday's election. 11th hour, cynical ploys come as no surprise from Brian Kemp, a man who raided the offices of organizations who register people to vote and had a woman arrested for helping her blind father cast his ballot. But his Democratic opponent Stacey Abrams calls it a "witch hunt".

With two days until polls open, Brian Kemp, the Georgia Secretary of State and Republican nominee for governor, is once again using his power as the state's chief election officer to boost his chances on November 6th.

"If it involves your own election", she continued, "I just can not imagine the candidate remaining involved in the investigation of something that might relate so directly to their own race".

The contest has turned bitter as Abrams and Kemp traded charges of shenanigans.

"Stacey Abrams - and I spoke to law enforcement, I spoke to everybody - is really weak on crime".

The robo-call apparently was made by, an anti-Semitic video podcasting website that the Anti-Defamation League says "has zeroed in on divisive political campaigns across the country", including both races that feature a black candidate for governor.

"I heard people were making racist robocalls in my name against Stacey Abrams, who I am one hundred percent for, in Georgia", Winfrey says.

Election law experts pointed out press releases about the alleged hacking appear prominently on the secretary of state's homepage, where many voters research information about their voter registration status and polling location before voting. Brian Kemp has never once taken responsibility for his actions.

But Abrams would have none of that, declaring Kemp a "bald-faced liar" intent on deflecting attention from security problems with his system.

The FBI said they have no comment about opening an investigation. He also said Wright had passed the details to the state Democratic Party.
