Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who was named as the presiding officer of the state electors meeting, continued to not wear a mask for extended periods of time Monday in the state Capitol building.

Abrams sat without a mask in the Georgia Capitol building for minutes at a time, while it appears everyone else in the room wore them. Monday was the deadlines for all 50 states, including Georgia, and the District of Columbia to cast their electoral votes for the 2020 presidential election.
