While former Democratic Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams pitches herself as a potential running mate for former Vice President Joe Biden, the state ethics commission still has an “active investigation” into her unsuccessful 2018 campaign, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.
“The investigation into the Abrams campaign remains ongoing,” David H. Emadi, the executive director of the Georgia Government Transparency & Campaign Finance Commission, told the DCNF in an email.
"Because it is an active investigation, we cannot comment any further pursuant to Rule 3.6 of the Rules of Professional Responsibility of the State Bar of Georgia,” he added.
The commission is investigating allegations that Abrams’ campaign illegally coordinated with outside groups in violation of campaign finance laws.
Emadi said in December 2019 that a nonprofit tied to Abrams acted as a de facto political committee during the campaign.
A spokesman for Abrams didn’t return a request for comment. She has previously denied any wrongdoing.
The most recent development in the investigation came two months ago in February, when a judge denied the commission’s pursuit of correspondence between Abrams’ campaign and the outside groups in question.
