Received this e-mail yesterday from Democracy for America in support of Rev. Raphael Warnock’s (D. GA) U.S. Senate campaign:
This is outrageous, but not surprising at all:
First, we learned Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler’s husband donated $1 million to Donald Trump’s super PAC late last month.
Now, we learn Trump’s Justice Department just dropped its investigation into alleged insider trading by… you guessed it: Senator Kelly Loeffler.
Kelly Loeffler dumped $20 million in stock after receiving private briefings about the danger of the coronavirus — all while simultaneously downplaying its danger to the public. She has no place serving in the U.S. Senate.
Georgia voters have the chance to hold Kelly Loeffler accountable.
In fact, multiple polls show an extremely close race between Kelly Loeffler and DFA-endorsed progressive challenger Rev. Raphael Warnock.
We can flip this seat blue and send Kelly Loeffler packing, but it won't be easy. Loeffler is the wealthiest member of Congress — and just cut her own campaign a $5 million check. Rev. Warnock isn't a multimillionaire. He's counting on you and grassroots support in Georgia — and nationwide — to win this race.
Kelly Loeffler put her personal wealth ahead of the health and safety of her constituents, then bought her way out of trouble with a million dollar contribution to Donald Trump.
She won't resign.
Trump's DOJ won't prosecute.
It's up to us kick her out of Congress.
Together, DFA members are working to defeat corrupt politicians like Kelly Loeffler and elect progressive champions like Rev. Raphael Warnock.
Thank you for everything you're doing to win.
Charles Chamberlain, Chair
