Jon Ossoff Hijacks Fox News Airtime to Take Down Perdue and Loeffler


#Georgia #Democratic #Senate candidate #Jon #Ossoff on #Wednesday morning turned the tables on #Fox #News, using the opportunity of an impromptu live interview to lambaste his #Republican opponent #Sen. #David #Perdue (R-GA), and #Sen. #Kelly #Loeffler (R-GA), who is running in another #Senate runoff race.

#During a campaign stop in #Marietta, #Georgia, #Ossoff was approached by #Fox #News reporter #Peter #Doocy, who let the #Democrat know they were live on-air and whether he’d be willing to take a few questions.

#Doocy first asked the 33-year-old candidate to talk about what “relevant experience” he had when it came to delivering on his promises as senator, prompting #Ossoff to briefly tout his journalistic career of “fighting injustice, exposing war crimes, and corruption” before turning his attention to #Perdue and #Loeffler.

“Right now we have a crisis of corruption in #American politics and since we are live on #Fox let me take this opportunity to address directly the #Fox audience,” he declared. “We have two #United #States senators in #Georgia who have blatantly used their offices to enrich themselves.”

#Loeffler and #Perdue are two of the wealthiest members of the #Senate and both have come under intense scrutiny over their vast stock portfolios and personal financial dealings while in office. #Democrats, meanwhile, have flooded the state with ads hammering the two #Republicans over investigations into their stock trading activities.

#After #Ossoff made his campaign pitch to #Fox #News viewers, #Doocy then jumped in to ask him about #Loeffler’s latest attacks on her #Democratic opponent #Raphael #Warnock, bringing up accusations surrounding a children’s camp #Warnock used to direct.

“Any concern that the allegations of wrongdoing against #Reverend #Warnock could possibly be a drag on the #Democratic ticket next week?” the #Fox #News correspondent pressed.

“None whatsoever,” #Ossoff insisted. “Reverend #Warnock addressed this issue a year ago and here’s the bottom line: #Kelly #Loeffler has been campaigning with a klansman. #Kelly #Loeffler has been campaigning with a klansman.”

The #Senate hopeful was referencing #Loeffler recently posing for a campaign event photo with #Chester #Doles, a neo-Nazi and longtime #Ku #Klux #Klan member who marched at the #Unite the #Right rally in #Charlottesville in 2017. #Loeffler’s campaign, meanwhile, quickly distanced itself from #Doles, saying the senator “had no idea who that was” and would have “kicked him out immediately” if she had known.

“So she’s stooping to these vicious personal attacks to distract from the fact that she has been campaigning with a former member of the #Ku #Klux #Klan,” #Ossoff concluded. “We deserve better than that.”
