Ohio democrat Senator Sen. Sherrod Brown said if Stacey Abrams does not win the Georgia gubernatorial race then Republicans “stole” the race in a speech Wednesday to Al Sharpton’s National Action Network.
“If Stacey Abrams doesn’t win in Georgia, they stole it, it’s clear. It’s clear. I say that publicly,” Brown said.
“They can’t win elections but there are way more of us than of them. They can’t win elections fairly; they win elections by redistricting and reapportionment and voter suppression.” He added
“In all the ways that they try to scare people, particularly people of color how they make it hard for people on college campuses, especially community college where there are more low-income people and more people of color.”
But in a statement, Canton, Ohio area attorney Laura Mills described a sexual encounter her client had with Brown in the late 1980s. Brown was Ohio’s Secretary of State at the time and the unnamed woman had met Brown in the course of her work.
According to Mills, Brown pushed her client up against a wall.
“She described an unexpected, uninvited, unwanted, and sudden advance, roughly pushing her up against a wall,” Mills said in the statement. “It did stop after she expressed dismay and very firmly pulled away, explaining that was not her style nor why she was there. He then said he remembered what she had on the day they had met some time earlier and that he had been attracted to her.”
Rep. Brown also has history of a three-decade-old domestic abuse allegation and restraining order filed against him by his ex-wife in 1986 amid a contentious divorce.
