Stacey Abrams’ PAC, Fair Fight, has raised an eye-popping amount of money since her 2018 loss to Brian Kemp after her refusal to concede. And now the donors can see who their money is actually going to.
Fox: Stacey Abrams’ group funnels thousands to director’s family and friends with no political experience
“Stacey Abrams has raked in tons of cash by lying to voters about Georgia voting laws, but it turns out, that’s not the only shady thing about her operation,” said RGA Spokeswoman Maddie Anderson. “Paying relatives and friends of staff who have nothing to do with politics or Fair Fight’s mission is concerning, and it raises questions about how Abrams and her top allies would use Georgia’s tax dollars if they got their hands on it.”
Fox News: Stacey Abrams’ group funnels thousands to director’s family and friends with no political experience
A group launched by Georgia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams is doling out thousands in payments to its director’s family and friends who do not appear to have political experience and maintain other full-time jobs, records reviewed by Fox News Digital show.
The Abrams-founded Fair Fight PAC is funneling the cash to individuals close to her longtime aide Andre Fields, who acts as the PAC’s political director. When reached for comment, a Fair Fight spokesperson said they are launching an internal investigation into the matter.
“Fair Fight strives to operate with the utmost integrity, as is core to our values,” the spokesperson told Fox News Digital. “We take these matters very seriously and have initiated a comprehensive investigation. Personnel will remain on leave pending the outcome.”
Fields’ sister, Darius Faulk, is one of the cash recipients. The Fair Fight PAC has disbursed more than $120,000 to her for training consultant services since August 2021, Federal Election Commission records show.
Faulk appears to have practically no political experience. She’s worked for Hofstra University’s women’s basketball program since 2017, serving as its director of operations before landing a promotion to assistant coach, according to the school’s athletic website.
The Fair Fight PAC has also paid Fields’ close friends. In a 2019 interview with Voyage Atlanta, Fields named Asa Fludd and Cruz Alvarado among his
close confidants, and both have hauled in tens of thousands of dollars from Abrams’ PAC.
