Loeffler hits back at Ossoff over KKK attack


“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,” #Ossoff said. “We deserve better than that here in #Georgia.”

#Loeffler, who said she didn’t know who the former #Klansman was when she snapped a photo with him and that he was later removed from her event, shot back that #Ossoff — who is facing her fellow #Republican #Sen. #David #Perdue — lacks credibility.

“Every #Georgian knows that #Jon #Ossoff is a pathological liar. #And he’s a trust-fund socialist who’s never had a job, other than through the #Chinese #Communist #Party,” #Loeffler said, echoing a debunked claim by #Perdue about #Ossoff’s income.

#Loeffler then turned her attention to her rival in the special election, #Warnock, who was arrested in 2002 for allegedly obstructing a police investigation into child abuse claims at a #Maryland camp he ran. The charges were dropped, blamed on a “miscommunication” and, The #Baltimore #Sun reported at the time, #Warnock was not suspected of abuse and was later deemed helpful to investigators. A former camper, now 30, told The #Washington #Free #Beacon in a story published this week that he had had urine thrown on him and was forced to sleep outside at one point.

#Warnock has also been under fire for a domestic dispute involving his now-former wife, who in #March accused him of running over her foot with his car. #Police at the time determined her foot showed no signs of such an injury, and her lawyer told The #Atlanta #Journal-Constitution that she wanted her privacy. #On #Wednesday, the #National #Republican #Senatorial #Committee released a TV ad that called #Warnock a phony and featured police body camera footage of the incident where his former wife called #Warnock “a great actor.”

#Loeffler referenced that incident, as well, in addressing #Ossoff’s comments about her.

“If he’s going to bring up lies about who I’m campaigning with, I’m going to talk about the truth about who he’s campaigning with,” she said. “He’s campaigning with #Raphael #Warnock, who has a past with child abuse and domestic abuse, who has celebrated #Jeremiah #Wright, #Karl #Marx, #Fidel #Castro, #James #Cone, #Louis #Farrakhan. #He’s attacked our police, our military. #He’s attacked #Israel, small businesses and every single #Georgian.”

There’s no evidence that #Warnock “celebrated” #Marx, #Castro or #Farrakhan, although #Warnock had written that the “Marxist #Critique has much to teach the black church,” #Castro did speak at a #New #York #City church where #Warnock was a youth pastor in 1995, and #Warnock had called #Farrakhan’s #Nation of #Islam “important for the development of #Black theology.”

#Warnock’s and #Ossoff’s campaigns have denied they’re socialists, and #Warnock has previously called #Loeffler’s attacks on him misleading. #Warnock did not clearly denounce socialism and #Marxism when #Loeffler asked him to do so at their only debate last month, although he said he believes “in our free-enterprise system.”
