Oprah denounces racist robocalls mimicking her Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams

Amid the furor over the purported hacking, Kemp announced Monday that the state had not only broken its 2014 record, but has set a new, all-time record for early voting in a midterm election. Add Midterm Elections as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Midterm Elections news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

Kemp's decision to directly accuse the opposing party of wrongdoing while running for the state's highest office has further inflamed deep-seated worries over voting rights in Georgia at the height of a historic campaign by his Democratic opponent, Stacey Abrams, to become the country's black female governor.

"We opened an investigation into the Democratic Party of Georgia after receiving information from our legal team about failed efforts to breach the online voter registration system and My Voter Page", Kemp's office said. They contend he has been lax on securing voter data and that his office previously improperly disclosed private information on six million Georgians.

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

"This is electricity in the air like I haven't seen since the '16 big victory that we all had together", Trump told a Macon, Georgia, campaign rally for GOP gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp.

Kemp's latest allegations were met with scepticism from cybersecurity experts, who noted that identifying who is behind a particular hack was time-consuming and extremely hard.

Republican Brian Kemp lobbed an allegation of hacking at Georgia Democrats Sunday, roiling the state's competitive contents in what election law experts say amounts to an abuse of power and a last-minute partisan ploy.

The FBI declined to comment. A representative for the Department of Homeland Security confirmed the agency had been notified, but it deferred to Georgia officials for details.

CNN reported that Kemp's office first found out about the possible weakness in the system when the emails were forwarded by a representative from a cybersecurity expert who was brought in by the Democrats. "In an act of desperation, the Democrats tried to expose vulnerabilities in Georgia's voter registration system". This was a 4th quarter Hail Mary pass that was intercepted in the end zone.

"These power-hungry radicals should be held accountable for their criminal behavior", he said.

The party stated that Small did not conduct any cyberattack, and that if anyone did, it was the voter who contacted her. He told ABC News on Sunday that he also contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation - in an email exchange he shared with ABC News - and an outside counsel for Kemp on Saturday.

The DHS inspector general in June 2017 said Kemp's complaint was without merit. The investigation determined that the activity flagged by Kemp was the "result of normal and automatic computer message exchanges", and that there were no unauthorized intrusion attempts.

Kemp is locked in a tight race with Stacey Abrams, a former Democratic leader in the Georgia House.

Kemp counters that Abrams and her backers want to help noncitizens cast ballots illegally.
