After losing in November, Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams refused to accept defeat graciously, claiming voter suppression – not her plans for gun confiscation – cost her the election.

Now, the situation has gotten worse for the possible White House hopeful courtesy of an investigation by Georgia's state ethics commission. 

Per Red State:
 

On Thursday, newly-minted Georgia Government Transparency & Campaign Finance Commission Dir. David Emadi announced that he’ll subpoena bank records from Stacey’s campaign, as well as from groups that raised money for her effort.

Stefan Ritter — who stepped down after being accused of watching porn at work — was alleged to have ordered staff to stall any probes into elections campaign impropriety.

...

Unsurprisingly, Stacey’s team is claiming any charges of wrongdoing is baloney. Former campaign manager Luren Groh-Wargo told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution the whole thing is an abuse of power:

“The Abrams campaign worked diligently to ensure compliance throughout the election and, had we been notified of any irregularities, would have immediately taken action to rectify them. The new ethics chief — a Kemp donor and former Republican Party leader — is using his power to threaten and lob baseless partisan accusations at the former Abrams campaign when they should be focused on real problems like the unethical ties between the governor’s office and voting machine lobbyists instead.”
