EXCLUSIVE: Text Messages Reveal Stacey Abrams Campaign Owes Back Pay to Staffers

According to a Georgia woman who spent several days working on Stacey Abrams’ gubernatorial campaign, she and several staffers have been left high and dry in terms of compensation.

“Personally, I know four people that haven’t gotten paid, that I actually talked to,” canvasser Gwenona Parker told Big League Politics. 

Parker’s home base during the campaign was the Covington Highway Office in Decatur, Georgia, but she knocked on thousands of doors during her five days of employment with the campaign, encouraging people to get out to vote for Abrams.

Parker said she worked from the Friday before the election through Election Day on Nov. 6. Canvassers were offered $90 per shift, and there were two shifts per day. She worked five double-shifts, but was not paid for her first day of work on the Friday before the election. Neither were her two children, or a friend she met on the campaign named Lucille, who could not be reached for comment.
