Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate for the governor of Georgia, has accused her Republican opponent and current Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp of abusing his power by leveling "cooked up" hacking allegations.
She's the first African-American woman to get this face, but Wallace says the race for governor isn't about black and white.
GOP nominee Brian Kemp asked the FBI to investigate the Democratic Party, accusing it of trying to hack the system he controls as secretary of state.
The blatantly racist robocall claims, "This is the magical negro, Oprah Winfrey, asking you to make my fellow negress, Stacey Abrams, governor of Georgia".
Kemp was criticized earlier this year, when it was found his office purged more than 100,000 people from Georgia's voter rolls because, as member station WABE reported, "they had decided not to vote in previous elections and they failed to respond to mailed notices from the state".

"It's no surprise that militant Black Panthers are armed and patrolling the streets of Georgia for Stacey Abrams", Ryan Mahoney, communications director for Kemp for Governor, said in a statement to CBS 46. Kemp counters that he is following the law and that Abrams and advocacy groups are trying to help noncitizens and others cast ballots illegally.
Speaking of issues, a win by Kemp will tell Georgia's traditionally Chamber of Commerce Republican Party to leave their suits and ties at home for the next election. Democrats also have blasted Kemp over 53,000 voter registrations that his office flagged as pending ahead of Tuesday's election.
"I don't want anyone to vote for me because I'm black", she said.
Citing a potential conflict of interest, Democrats, including former President Jimmy Carter, have unsuccessfully appealed for Kemp to step aside as secretary of state until after the election. "Because I can assure you if I hadn't done anything and the story came out that something was going on, you'd be going 'Why didn't you act?'"
