Throughout her lucrative career as an election denier, Stacey Yvonne Abrams could always count on one supporter, not any of her ordinary ActBlue donors or billionaires, but the IRS.
The Internal Revenue Service has carefully turned a blind eye to Stacey’s shenanigans and her flagrant abuses of the tax code. It’s not just gullible donors who kept her big lie going, but the IRS which allowed her to illegally set up nonprofits and organizations to promote her own ends.
After fighting and losing what the Abrams group boasted was “the longest voting rights trial on Eleventh Circuit record”, it’s been revealed that Fair Fight Action blew through $25 million on legal fees.
$9 million of that money went to the law firm of Stacey’s friend and campaign chairwoman.
Fair Fight Action is a 501(c)(4) and, according to IRS regulations, their “principal feature is lack of private benefit or profit.” C4s frequently lobby for various causes and can support political candidates, as long as, in the IRS’ own words, that “does not constitute the organization’s primary activity”. C4s can’t serve as the arm of a political campaign for a specific candidate.
Tell that to Stacey Abrams.
Fair Fight Action repeatedly retweets Abrams, and her campaign, promotes her appearances and links directly to her campaign site. One pre-election tweet cheers, “make your plan to elect Stacey Abrams for Governor of Georgia.” Another states, “only 18 days left until we elect @staceyabrams governor.” There’s no mention of any other political candidates.
The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) put Abrams on its list of worst ethics violators over Fair Fight Action. It even filed a complaint with the IRS over FFA “funding former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams’ political activities in violation of federal law.” FACT noted that FFA illegally served “as the primary arm of Stacey Abrams’ political operation and efforts” and was “in clear violation of the requirement that a social welfare organization serve general community purposes rather than provide a private benefit to an individual.”
That was three years ago. The IRS did nothing.
To understand the sheer level of illegality here, Abrams used a dark money nonprofit that she created to fund speeches in which she declared, “I am running for office again.”
Fair Fight’s reply to the allegations accused Republicans of being “afraid of Stacey Abrams”. FFA was so certain that the IRS wouldn’t touch it that it doubled down on its illegality.
As Internal Radical Service by David Horowitz and John Perazzo lays out, the IRS has illegally allowed Democrats to build massive political operations that engage in violence and domestic terrorism, and corrupt the political process. The Abrams political machine exemplifies the kinds of abuses that the new Freedom Center pamphlet discusses.
The $9 million payout to Allegra Lawrence-Hardy, her campaign chairwoman who also served on the Biden recount team, goes beyond abusing a C4 for personal political gain to just abusing it. Hardy is a major Democrat donor, including to Stacey Abrams, having given her friend over $18,000 over the years. The self-dealing here is abundantly obvious to anyone. Except the IRS.
Article VI of FFA states that “it is not organized and will not be operated for the pecuniary gain or profit of any individual” except “to pay reasonable compensation”. So much for reasonable.
While Stacey hasn’t been very good at winning elections, she is very good at creating organizations and moving money around. Fair Fight Action started life as the Voter Access Institute. FFA CEO Lauren Groh-Wargo was originally her campaign manager.
Fair Fight has a twin, Fair Fight PAC, which raised around $90 million.
A recent investigation revealed that the PAC was actually funneling money to the friends and family of its political director, Andre Fields, formerly Abrams’ special assistant. Andre’s sister, an assistant basketball coach, scored $120,000 in consultant fees. Fair Fight PAC claimed that it’s investigating money that “may have been incorrectly paid to consultants.”
Abrams had also created the New Georgia Project and the New Georgia Project Action Fund, formerly headed by Raphael Warnock sitting atop its board of directors. The Project was hit with a complaint that it “illegally canvassed for Democratic candidates including Abrams, used phone bank scripts pushing people to vote Democratic and included “#teamAbrams” in social media posts soliciting donations”.
Earlier this year, the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission determined that the New Georgia Project and the New Georgia Project Action Fund had violated laws with its millions in political spending.
While Georgia officials have investigated Stacey’s scams, the IRS has been notably silent.
The Abrams organizations exist to elect her and a few of her friends, like Warnock, to political office, to employ campaign staffers and to funnel money to her people, friends and allies.
But as long as the love affair between Stacey and the IRS endures, she’s untouchable.
Why does the IRS continue to protect Stacey Abrams and her political organizations? The answer is political influence. Abrams was being considered as Biden’s VP. Allegra Lawrence-Hardy, her campaign chairwoman whose law firm received $9 million from Fair Fight Action, not only helped the Biden campaign, but was there for Democrats in Gore v. Bush.
Internal Radical Service warned that the IRS had become deeply corrupted. The love affair between Stacey and the IRS shows just how rotten America’s least favorite service really is.

It’s a shame that nonprofit status has been so abused. I’ve been tangentially a witness to nonprofits for most of my life, mainly through my Mom’s spiritual groups, and though less efficient than for profit organizations, they were well-intentioned and did a lot of good.
I’m betting that not one of Biden’s 87,000 new IRS agents are auditing this leftist manatee for any wrongdoing whatsoever.

She’s a far Left ,black female. That’s how she gets away with it.
How did Charlie Rangel get away with hiding 90K in his freezer? Or, Al Sharpton owing millions in taxes he’s never paid back (as far as I know).
Talk about black skin privilege.
Daniel Hargreaves says
I believe it was Congressman Jefferson D-La. that had the cash in his freezer. Rangel had 2 subidized apartments in his name that he rented out and a condo in the Dominican Republic that he rented as a time share w,/o reporting the income to the IRS. His excuse the tax codes were too complicated. This from the Chairman of the House Wage and Means committee that makes the tax codes!
Aunt Jemima is a Democrat. She’s untouchable. However she will lose in a couple of weeks.

Vile, totalitarian, narcissistic, entitled and imperially arrogant Abrams is pulling crony-enriching schemes that her father, Idi Amin, would be proud of.

Black criminals don’t get prosecuted anymore.
And so the criminals take over and destruction of America continues, unchecked.
The further this trend continues, the higher are chances of a civil war, being the only option to save America.

Reverse the races and you get nothing. Crickets.
If legal charges were brought against the girlfriend by some miracle of semblance of equality before the law, then it would be “justifiable homicide.” Santi DESERVED to die for being white while attempting citizen arrest against a preferred class (non-white).
Video shows boyfriend was moving and resisting (lawful citizen arrest) until the end. Plenty of oxygen. Santi was an EMT and knew well how to choke or avoid choking the esophagus. Being both a firefighter and EMT, it is likely Santi’s work saved and helped people of every race without distinction.
Girlfriend could have used lesser force – cold-cocked him with the gun. But the use of lesser force only applies to whites, who have a higher duty of care.
What if Santi had been cold-cocked, or the perp had been able to get up and flee. What are the chances Santi would have been shot with that gun and killed. What would have happened then?
Reverse the races and imagine that scenario.

The Dept. of “Justice,” the F.B.I., the Dept. of State, the I.R.S., the upper levels of the military–is there any bureaucracy in D.C. that is not now corrupt? Totally dispiriting.

bureaucracy is by its nature corrupt and corrupting
I’ve posted on MANY articles about Campaign Finance Reform! These MILLIONS of Dollars campaigns for local offices are ridiculous! It’s MONEY LAUNDERING in most cases! I propose a COMPLETE OVERHAUL of the laws to restrict campaign donations to the people affected by the office! City elections = CITY residents only! County elections = COUNTY residents only! Congressional Districts = DISTRICT residents only! State wide = STATE residents only!! National = US CITIZENS ONLY – NO PACS!! AND for good measure, the MAXIMUM donation allowed PER PERSON should be set at what the AVERAGE AMERICAN can afford – no more than $250 PER YEAR TOTAL! Why should RICH people have MORE INFLUENCE over an election than each one of us?? Where’s the “EQUITY”??? Isn’t that the DEMOcrats’ latest “buzzword”?? I guess “reparations” was too hard to spell correctly for most! With restricted funding, the “politicians” would have to rely on the very people they are running to represent for donations and support. This would put them back where they belong – on the streets and knocking on doors! They can dispense with the “kissing of babies” since the DEMOcrats have made that into something that it should not be!!

The IRS needs a good cleaning of the house especially with respect to its bias against conservative groups that seek 501(3) protection
