Fair Fight to pay state $200K in legal costs

A federal judge has ordered Stacey Abrams’ Fair Fight Action to pay over $200,000 to reimburse the state of Georgia for legal fees related to a lawsuit that claimed Governor Brian Kemp stole the 2018 gubernatorial election.

Abrams founded the group after losing to then-secretary of state Kemp, who she claimed used his position to disenfranchise minority voters in the lead-up to the election. A federal judge in late September ruled against Fair Fight Action on all counts following a four-year legal battle, saying the group provided no direct evidence that Georgia voters struggled to vote in the election.

The bill for reimbursements costs was submitted by the court Tuesday.
