Stacey Abrams is warning that while Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger stands up to President Donald Trump, he’s not exactly an ally of voting rights. 

Stacey Abrams, speaking to Rachel Maddow, identifies Gov. Brian Kemp and Raffensperger as two of the most egregious voter suppressors in the country.

She added that Raffensperger is working with his fellow Republicans in the state to limit access to the ballot box with new restrictions that could take effect in time for the next election.

“Lionizing Brad Raffensperger’s a bit wrong-headed,” the voting rights activist and former Georgia gubernatorial candidate told Stephen Colbert on Monday. “This man is not defending the right of voters. He’s defending an election that he ran.”
