    It does appear that Trump is proud, though, as he has endorsed Brian Kemp.

    I can only assume that the republican party base is proud since they endorse Trump.

    Former President Statement to Kemp



    October 22, 2018

    To Secretary of State Brian Kemp:

    I have officially observed scores of doubtful elections in many countries, and one of the key requirements for a fair and trusted process is that there be nonbiased supervision of the electoral process.

    In Georgia’s upcoming gubernatorial election, popular confidence is threatened not only by the undeniable racial discrimination of the past and the serious questions that the federal courts have raised about the security of Georgia’s voting machines, but also because you are now overseeing the election in which you are a candidate. This runs counter to the most fundamental principle of democratic elections — that the electoral process be managed by an independent and impartial election authority. Other secretaries of state have stepped down while running for election within their jurisdiction, to ensure that officials without a direct stake in the process can take charge and eliminate concerns about a conflict of interest.

    In order to foster voter confidence in the upcoming election, which will be especially important if the race ends up very close, I urge you to step aside and hand over to a neutral authority the responsibility of overseeing the governor’s election. This would not address every concern, but it would be a sign that you recognize the importance of this key democratic principle and want to ensure the confidence of our citizens in the outcome.

    Sincerely,

    Jimmy Carter

    The Honorable Brian F. Kemp

    Secretary of State

    He is leaving the office at the end of the term anyway, so why not resign? It might not change what the office is doing, but it at least makes him look better. The governor could then appoint whoever wins the election for SoS to fill out the last few weeks.

    Can't work to rig the election in your favor if you resign.

    Daily reminder that Kemp is a garbage human being.

    Judge declines Brian Kemp’s request to pause absentee ballot injunction

    A federal judge has declined to pause an injunction she ordered that changes how Georgia elections officials evaluate certain absentee ballots.

    Secretary of State Brian Kemp had requested that U.S. District Court Judge Leigh Martin May stay the injunction she issued last week while Kemp’s legal team appeals the decision regarding signature mismatches to a higher court. In an order filed late Tuesday — a week before Election Day — May said she would not do so.

    “The Court finds that the public interest is best served by allowing qualified absentee voters to vote and have their votes counted,” May wrote.
    I can actually see the judge's eyes roll as she wrote that statement.
