Oprah Hits Back At Racist Robocall: 'Jesus Don't Like Ugly'

"I just want to say: Jesus don't like ugly, and we know what to do about that".

Clarke said the election problems underscore a need to address systemic issues, particularly barriers to minority voters.

The accusation emerged on Sunday amid reports that the Georgia election system, which Kemp oversees as secretary of state, is open to glaring vulnerabilities.

Democrats responded to the announcement by calling it "a reckless and unethical ploy", saying Kemp was trying to gain an edge in his neck-and-neck race with Abrams.

Kemp pushed back Monday against concerns that his call for an investigation is politically motivated.

The Secretary of State's Office said the system remains secure and voter information wasn't breached, but there was an attempt to penetrate the system.

The FBI declined to comment on the matter. Abrams is now favored by 46.9 percent of the voters while Kemp has 46.7 percent, recent polling from Channel 2 Action News and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution showed.

Kemp asked the FBI to investigate the Democratic Party, accusing it of trying to hack the system he controls as secretary of state.

"This political stunt from Kemp just days before the election is yet another example of why he can not be trusted and should not be overseeing an election in which he is also a candidate for governor", said Rebecca DeHart, executive director of the Democratic Party of Georgia. "She should stand against and condemn their attempts to intimidate hardworking Georgia voters just days before the election".

"In Georgia, it is easy to vote and hard to cheat, and I am incredibly proud of this new record showing strong voter engagement leading up to tomorrow's election", Kemp said.

Actor Will Ferrell also campaigned for Abrams alongside his wife Viveca Paulin-Ferrell.

In the event that national polls are correct and blue wave does come to fruition, look for more Republicans to follow Kemp's lead and suddenly worry about election hacking.

"We expected the secretary of state would take that seriously and would take whatever remedial actions needed to be taken, and we were surprised to see that the response was to accuse the Democrats of hacking", Cross told reporters on Sunday. A representative for the Department of Homeland Security confirmed the agency had been notified, but it deferred to Georgia officials for details.

First and foremost, the results in Georgia will be a fast and clear grade of the Trump presidency - period.

President Donald Trump has rallied in the state on behalf of Kemp, while former President Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey have made appearances on behalf of Abrams.

Democrats said Kemp's investigation is a "political stunt" just before Election Day. But under Kemp's administration of the polls, voters are experiencing massive lines and technical problems as they try to cast ballots. Kemp counters that he's following state and federal law and that it's Abrams and her affiliated voting advocacy groups trying to help people, including noncitizens, cast ballots illegally.
