When Stacey Abrams first ran for Georgia governor in 2018, her inadequate personal finances and an unexpectedly large IRS bill provided political rivals with ammunition to critique her financial management skills. Now, as Abrams embarks on her second bid, that issue has been put behind her, according to AP.
Abrams has recently declared herself a millionaire through book deals and speaking engagements. According to her campaign spokesperson Seth Bringman, Abrams paid for 37 speeches in 2021 and has written, co-written or reissued six books since 2019. Additionally, Abrams earned $700,000 as executive director of the Southern Economic Advancement Project and invested in multiple businesses.
