The New Georgia Project, a charity founded by Stacey Abrams, is facing continued legal trouble.
Last week, Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr announced that his office filed an appeal to continue the New Georgia Project campaign finance case:
New Georgia Project spent millions of dollars in express political advocacy, fought state investigators for years to avoid disclosing any information, & then rushed to federal court to stop our civil proceeding entirely.
This is completely unacceptable & we’re pushing back.

At the center of the allegations are $11 million in investment funds that were quickly used up—directly ahead of firing half of the staff due to “a lack of funds”, as reported by The Washington Free Beacon.
One purchase, which has since come under the microscope, was the $2.45 million acquisition of a property located in Atlanta, by the New Georgia Project.
NEW: Amid financial turmoil, Stacey Abrams's New Georgia Project moved to buy an Atlanta compound for $2.45 million cash.
The bizarre deal fell through at the last minute. Weeks later, NGP fired its CEO and top legal officer.

The Washington Free Beacon authored the explosive report:
A series of internal documents and correspondences obtained by the Washington Free Beacon reveals the bizarre circumstances surrounding the real estate deal, which several parties close to the matter say are indicative of a leadership crisis within the Stacey Abrams-founded group.
The deal was spearheaded by Erin Ferguson, a junior New Georgia Project staffer who in a group text urged senior leadership in late August to sign a letter of intent to purchase the two adjacent properties and swiftly pay a $30,000 non-refundable deposit.

Zero Hedge asks:
Abrams is, strangely, now in Nigeria, joining the National Democratic Institute (along with the National Republican Institute) on a mission to observe elections and encourage voter participation.
The diplomatic initiative includes a contingent of globalist think-tank representatives from institutions like the Atlantic Council and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, which is heavily involved in diversity and equity programs similar to ESG efforts.
Why Stacey Abrams and why Nigeria?
