"I just want to say: Jesus don't like ugly ..."

The plaintiffs, registered Georgia voters, have been identified as LaTosha Brown, Jennifer N. Ide, Katharine Wilkinson, Candace Fowler and Chalis Montgomery.

"Allowing one of the candidates to not just preside over their own election but misuse their office to give them an unfair advantage is just anti-democratic and unlawful", former Department of Justice Voting Rights Section attorney Bryan L. Sells, one of the attorneys representing the Georgia voters in their suit.

Rebecca DeHart, executive director at the state Democratic Party, said no one from Kemp's office notified the Democratic Party or asked any question about the correspondence before issuing its public announcement of an investigation.

Kemp and Abrams both condemned the calls.

Adding to the drama, Election Day voters will cast ballots amid an ongoing dispute over Kemp's management of the election system he runs in his current job as secretary of state, leaving open the possibility that partisans on the losing end may not quietly accept the outcome. "It's a way to say that 'If I win, I've overcome all these obstacles, ' and 'If I lose, they stole it from me'".

Capehart insisted Republicans were fixated on voter suppression to prevent a majority of voters from duly electing Abrams, who has been polling close with Kemp.

The charges originated with a private citizen's discovery of what he believed was a flaw in the system and sought to bring to the attention of authorities, and Georgia Democrats called the episode an abuse of Kemp's power. On Tuesday, voters will determine which party controls the US Congress as well as pick governors in 36 states, among them Georgia.

The contest between Kemp, who now sits as Georgia's secretary of state, and Abrams, who is vying to become the country's first black female governor, had already become a flashpoint for allegations of voter suppression.

Finally, Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan hit the ground in Georgia, going door-to-door to encourage Georgians to vote for the Democrat.

Stacey Abrams, Kemp's African-American Democrat opponent, said in October that the state's "exact match" registration verification process - one that is overseen by Kemp - is suppressing the vote.

The latest poll: A WSB/Atlanta Journal Constitution poll out Friday showed Abrams with an extremely narrow lead over Kemp - 46.9 percent to 46.7 percent.

In 2015, Kemp's office inadvertently released the Social Security numbers and other identifying information of millions of Georgia voters. In 2016, after the state's servers were compromised, Kemp was the only secretary of state to refuse help from the federal government to see if Russians had hacked the servers. Abrams made her name in part by opposing such requirements, and the two clashed over the validity of voter registrations Abrams obtained during a drive.
