Far-Left Georgia Dem Gov Candidate Stacey Abrams Faces Questions Over Personal Financial Stake In Jobs Plan

Despite her history of personal financial issues, far-left Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is boasting to Georgia voters that she has a plan to create a $40 million fund to spur job growth.

Per the RGA:

Despite her history of personal financial issues, including $200,000 in unpaid debts and more than $50,000 in unpaid taxes, far-left Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is boasting to Georgia voters that she has a plan to create a $40 million fund to spur job growth – but Abrams’ proposal raises new questions about the specifics of her plan, and her possible financial interests in it.

Abrams claims that her job creation platform includes creating a $10 million small business financing program. Such a program would likely fund NOWaccount, a financial services company that Abrams has a financial stake in. Abrams’ role as a stakeholder in NOWaccount has been a subject of controversy since the Democrat primary in March, when it was reported that the company had received contracts funded by taxpayer money for six years while Abrams was a member of the state legislature.

By putting forward a policy proposal that she could potentially stand to benefit from financially, Abrams raises a new question: is she trying to help Georgia create more jobs, or is she attempting to profit from public service? Given her known history of financial and ethical issues, Abrams gives voters little reason to trust her to lead.
