85,000 votes were suppressed by Brian Kemp; Abrams is holding out to make sure no one gets shut out of being counted.

The marriage of American actress Meghan Markle and Britain's Prince Harry on Saturday was anything but the traditional royal protocol for a wedding at Windsor Castle in England.

Martin Luther King has been dead for 50 years and Donald Trump is our president. Who is responsible?
