Oprah Winfrey addressed the racist robocall that was circulating about her in Georgia ahead of the governor's race, for which she has been campaigning for Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams.

No details of the alleged cyber crimes have been released, but there was apparently an attempt to hack the voter registration database. The Department of Homeland Security said Sunday that the State of Georgia had notified the department about the issue but declined to comment further.

The same poll also shows 52% of Georgia voters approve of President Trump's job performance with 43% disapproving of the Commander-in-Chief. "These automated calls are being sent into homes just days before President Trump arrives, reminding voters exactly who is promoting a political climate that celebrates this kind of vile, poisonous thinking". But Republicans here see Georgia's past as imperfect, of course, but also as simpler, easier and just plain better than the future they're anxious about with the arrival of new faces, new ideas and new politics.

Kemp's actions as secretary of state have increasingly come into question as he struggles to fend off gubernatorial opponent Stacey Abrams, who is seeking to be the first ever African-American woman governor in America, and who is now polling in a dead heat.

Oprah on Thursday campaigned for Abrams during two rallies and joined her as she canvassed door-to-door. Good thing he's in charge of certifying the election results!

The accusation is not the first from Kemp accusing outsiders of trying to penetrate his office.

In Georgia, critics have drawn attention to Kemp's dual role as candidate for governor and supervisor of the state's elections, in his capacity as Georgia secretary of state. In a highly unusual situation, Kemp has also faced criticism for the way he has overseen the election that will decide his state's highest office.

Georgia's centrally managed elections system lacks a verifiable paper trail that can be audited in case of problems.

There have been bumps in the road for both politicians with the Georgian political landscape not exempt from the current political climate that grips the United States.

She has accused Kemp of using his post as secretary of state to make it harder for certain voters to cast ballots.

And even before his new allegation against his political rivals, Kemp had been criticized for holding up 53,000 voter registrations, citing an "exact match" law that requires the information on a registration application to be 100 percent identical with the information on a voter's identification document, down to punctuation marks. His office blamed a clerical error.

Kemp's office blamed that breach on Kennesaw State University, which managed the system on Kemp's behalf. "It's another failure of Kemp's office to actually have a secure election system in the state".
