Georgia State Senator Nikema Williams was arrested Tuesday as protesters filled the State Capitol to demand ballots be recounted from last week’s election, including the hotly contested race for governor.
The Democratic state senator was hauled off to Fulton County jail as supporters of Stacey Abrams tried to persuade officials to count thousands of disallowed votes, so she could force a runoff against Republican Brian Kemp.
It is the latest in a long line of examples in which Democrats seem incapable of accepting election results and are trying to rewrite history from last Tuesday.
Williams was led out of the rotunda with hands zip-tied behind her back after Capitol police ordered the protesters out. Lawmakers had met to discuss disbursing funds for hurricane relief when the mob activity broke out. The law prohibits people from interrupting the state legislature with “loud, threatening, or abusive language.”

Breaking the Law While Complaining About Supposed Election Corruption
Williams’s arrest comes while nationally recognized Democrats are trying to portray the election system in Georgia as corrupt.
Sen. Sherrod Brown, an Ohio Democrat, recently claimed that if Abrams isn’t declared the winner of the gubernatorial contest, it’s because Republicans stole the election.
“If Stacey Abrams doesn’t win in Georgia, they stole it,” Brown said. “It’s clear.”
This is how unhinged Dems are right now. @SherrodBrown thinks that just because they lost the #GAGov election, that means Republicans stole it. As Americans we have to accept the results of elections even if they don't go our way. This is dangerous. https://t.co/eE4wK9C87R #gapol

Hillary Clinton, the queen of being completely incapable of accepting election results, claimed Abrams would have already been declared governor “if she had a fair election.”

Yet, here we have a Democrat breaking actual laws in an attempt to get ballots that have been declared null and void added to the recount. Where’s the integrity in this election? It’s certainly not coming from Abrams corner.
Why Williams Was Arrested
You’re going to be shocked to hear this. Williams, a Democrat African-American female, believes she was arrested because … wait for it …
Racism and sexism!
“There are countless Georgians who cast their ballots and still don’t feel like their voices are heard,” she said in a statement. “I joined them down on the floor, and I was singled out as a Black female senator standing in the rotunda with constituents.”
To paraphrase Inigo Montoya, I do not think it means what you think it means.
Williams was so “singled out” that 14 other people were arrested alongside her.
Lo and behold, here’s a couple (courtesy of CBS 47) who joined Williams in the clink: one who is most decidedly not a female, and the other who is not black but is willing to dress up in mock orangeface to protest President Trump.
The fact is, Williams wasn’t arrested because she’s black, or female; she was arrested because, like so many in her party, she has no respect for laws and those who enforce them.
