Ossoff shuts down Loeffler criticism of Warnock: She’s ‘been campaigning with a Klansman’


#Democratic #Senate candidate #Jon #Ossoff responded to #Sen. #Kelly #Loeffler#Kelly #LoefflerPush for ,000 stimulus checks hits #Senate buzzsaw 2.3 million people have voted in #Georgia’s #Senate runoffs with week to go #Intercept’s DC bureau chief: #McConnell was ‘quite fine’ with #Trump losing reelection MORE’s (R-Ga.) criticism of her #Democratic opponent, the #Rev. #Raphael #Warnock, by saying on #Wednesday that she has been “campaigning with a #Klansman.”

#Loeffler has leveraged a #Washington #Free #Beacon report of alleged abuse at a camp that #Warnock oversaw in #Maryland, calling the incident “disqualifying” in a #Monday #Fox #News interview.

#Ossoff was responding on #Wednesday to a question by #Fox #News reporter #Peter #Doocy when asked if he had “any concern that the allegations of wrongdoing by #Rev. #Warnock could possibly be a drag on the #Democratic ticket” during the #Senate runoff races next week.

“None whatsoever,” #Ossoff responded in the video shared on #Twitter. “Rev. #Warnock addressed this issue a year ago, and here’s the bottom line: #Kelly #Loeffler has been campaigning with a #Klansman.”

“She is stooping to these vicious personal attacks to distract from the fact that she’s been campaigning with a former member of the #Ku #Klux #Klan,” he added. “I mean, we deserve better than that here in #Georgia.”

#With his remarks, #Ossoff called attention to the photo that #Loeffler took earlier this month at a campaign event with #Chester #Doles, who is a reported former leader of the #Ku #Klux #Klan and was imprisoned for beating a #Black man.

#Doles also has ties to the #Hammerskins, which the #Southern #Poverty #Law #Center calls the “best organized, most widely dispersed and most dangerous #Skinhead group.”

#Loeffler’s campaign denounced #Doles, with spokesman #Stephen #Lawson telling the #Atlanta #Journal-Constitution that “#Kelly had no idea who that was.”

“#If she had she would have kicked him out immediately because we condemn in the most vociferous terms everything that he stands for,” #Lawson said.

#On #Monday, the #Washington #Free #Beacon reported about an alleged abuse victim who said counselors at #Camp #Farthest #Out allegedly threw urine on him and locked him outside overnight when he was 12 in 2002. #Warnock oversaw the camp for inner-city children as the senior pastor at the #Douglas #Memorial #Community #Church.

“#It’s disgusting,” #Loeffler told #Fox #News. “#It’s really alarming, and frankly it should be disqualifying.”

#Michael #Brewer, #Warnock’s campaign’s rapid response director, told #Fox #News earlier this month that the camp allegations are “yet another one of #Senator #Loeffler’s lowest of the low attacks that independent fact checkers have said is ‘mostly false.’”
