One of our favorite moments from .@staceyabrams in #Houston for .@AnniesListTX while speaking about keeping up the fight: "usually candidates feel like they have to concede if they want to run for office again to show that they're a good sport. I am not a good sport." pic.twitter.com/SHOstTIWMA

Yes, you are delusional. This kind of thing undermines our system far more than any random Facebook page, now we’re seeing people actually think this behavior is acceptable.
Via Fox News:
Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams again claimed she won the state’s 2018 gubernatorial race on Friday, despite losing to now-Gov. Brian Kemp.
“I’m here to tell you a secret that makes Breitbart and [Fox News host] Tucker Carlson go crazy: We won,” Abrams said, according to The Houston Chronicle. “I am not delusional. I know I am not the governor of Georgia — possibly yet.”
She made the remarks an a Houston fundraiser hosted by Annie’s List, a group that seeks to elect progressive women into office. Abrams justified her refusal to accept the result of the election by calling Kemp “an architect of voter suppression that spent the last eight years knitting together a system of voter suppression that is unparalleled in America.”
According to Texas Tribune reporter Patrick Svitek, she said in her remarks that “we don’t have to concede elections anymore, because when we concede, we are condoning systems that are used to oppress us.”
