"And I want you to know that their blood has seeped into my DNA, and I refuse to let their sacrifices be in vain".
Georgia's centrally managed elections system lacks a verifiable paper trail that can be audited in case of problems.
A motion for a temporary restraining order asks a judge to order Georgia's governor to appoint a replacement who is not affiliated with Kemp or his campaign.
The Democratic Party of Georgia called the allegation "100 percent false" and "an abuse of power" by Kemp's office.
Democrats denied Kemp's claim and ripped the investigation as a "political stunt" from a "desperate" candidate.
Their goal is to prevent Kemp, who now serves as Georgia's secretary of state, from declaring the victor of today's election and from being involved in any recounts or runoffs. The all-caps headline says: "AFTER FAILED HACKING ATTEMPT, SOS LAUNCHES INVESTIGATION INTO GEORGIA DEMOCRATIC PARTY". Abrams is now favored by 46.9 percent of the voters while Kemp has 46.7 percent, recent polling from Channel 2 Action News and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution showed.
The website's vulnerability could allow someone to access personal information, such as driver's license numbers and addresses, and potentially change voter registration information without permission, said Richard DeMillo, a computer scientist at Georgia Tech.
Kemp has been trying to true the vote in Georgia, removing dead people from the rolls and also trying to remove the names of those who haven't voted in a while.
The finger-pointing is the latest turn in a campaign whose final weeks have been dominated by charges of voter suppression and countercharges of attempted voter fraud. Kemp's first ad introducing himself to Georgia voters featured a gun, a chainsaw, an explosion and Kemp's pickup - "just in case I need to round up criminal illegals and take 'em home myself. Yep".
Both Abrams and her Republican opponent Briant Kemp have condemned the automated telephone call filled with racist and anti-Semitic statements just days before the historic vote for Georgia's next governor. A representative for the Department of Homeland Security confirmed the agency had been notified, but it deferred to Georgia officials for details.
Kemp is the 54-year-old businessman and veteran secretary of state vying to keep the GOP's hold on a state that is nearing presidential battleground status courtesy of its growth and diversity. And in the lead-up to Election Day, Kemp's office leveled a vague accusation of "potential cyber crimes" at Georgia Democrats.
A similar view was echoed Tuesday by civil rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson in response to long voting lines faced by some black voters in the state: "This is classic voter suppression". "You can change voter registration". Through the last day of early voting, which ended on Friday, Nov. 2, 2018, Georgians cast 2,071,830 ballots with 1,886,905 in-person and 184,925 by mail.
