Nonprofit Created By Georgia Dem Gov Candidate Stacey Abrams Faces Liens For Unpaid Unemployment Benefits

Stacey Abrams is just another politician who says one thing, but does another.

Per The RGA:

While Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has claimed on the campaign trail to oppose “wage theft” by private firms, a nonprofit that she helped create has reportedly incurred penalties for that very practice. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Abrams’ Third Sector Development has incurred four liens from the Georgia Department of Labor for unpaid unemployment contributions between 2014 and 2016.

This comes after Abrams has spoken out against “wage theft” from “firms who hire full-time employees and then classify them as independent contractors to deprive them of benefits.” Abrams sent a press release out just this weekend saying the practice cheats workers out of “unemployment benefits, workers’ compensation, Social Security.” But as it turns out, Abrams’ own nonprofit has faced penalization for not paying out unemployment contributions to its own workers.

Stacey Abrams is just another politician who says one thing, but does another.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has more:

A nonprofit created by Democratic candidate for governor Stacey Abrams tallied four liens worth $13,000 from the Georgia Department of Labor for unpaid unemployment contributions between 2014 and 2016, according to state tax records.

The records show the tax liens were filed against Third Sector Development, a nonprofit Abrams created in 1998 that was later expanded to oversee her New Georgia Project voter-registration effort…

Abrams earned about $180,000 a year in 2014 as the part-time chief executive of the New Georgia Project,  which set out to register hundreds of thousands of new voters in time for the midterm election.
