Oprah Hits Back At Racist Robocall: 'Jesus Don't Like Ugly'

Voters in the USA state of Georgia broke the record for early voting in a midterm election with more than two million ballots cast ahead of tomorrow's contest, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp said in a press release.

In it, a man named Richard Wright tells a Democratic Party of Georgia volunteer that he found two "issues" with the Georgia MyVoter page and the voter registration page. And we know what to do about that: "Vote".

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

Days before elections, Georgia's Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp, who is running a close-fought campaign for governor, says Democrats are under investigation for hacking the state's election system.

Abrams blasts Kemp as "an architect of voter suppression" for the way he's opted to enforce federal and state election laws.

". There have never been crowds like this - just so you understand - in the history of politics".

Both Abrams and Kemp condemned the robocall.

"In fact, I think he cooked up the charge because he realizes once again he has left six million voters' information vulnerable and this happened twice before", Abrams told George Stephanopoulos on "Good Morning America" on Monday, likely in reference to a pair reported data breaches in Georgia in 2015 and 2017 that exposed the information on millions of residents. Abrams cruised to the Democratic nomination after encountering initial resistance from old-guard Georgia Democrats who backed her white opponent, in part out of concerns that a black woman could not win in November. The all-caps headline says: "AFTER FAILED HACKING ATTEMPT, SOS LAUNCHES INVESTIGATION INTO GEORGIA DEMOCRATIC PARTY".

Georgians wait in line to cast their votes in the 2018 midterm election at a Gwinnett County polling place in Annistown Elementary School in Snellville, Georgia.

Democrats denied Kemp's claim and ripped the investigation as a "political stunt" from a "desperate" candidate.

"Thank you very much, Georgia", he opened.

Georgia voters are turning out to decide several key Election Day contests beyond the heated race for governor. The FBI declined to comment. Republicans have successfully shut out Democrats from holding any statewide office in Georgia since 2010. Democrats see a potential opening as demographic shifts have made the Atlanta suburbs less white. His killer was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison.
