The Jewish Action group Twitter account, shared an image of Senator Kelly Loeffler with a former leader of the KKK.
Chester Doles, a fourth-generation Klansman, now leads the National Alliance and Hammerskins. He introduced the nation to the American Patriots USA in 2019.
Kelly Loeffler claims she had “no idea” that she was posing with a longtime Ku Klux Klan member after a photo of the senator with the man went viral on social media over the weekend.
A photo showing Loeffler with Chester Doles at a campaign event on Friday was widely circulated on social media with less than a month to go before the Georgia Senate runoff elections, which will determine which party will control the U.S. Senate.
The picture in question, which shows Loeffler posing alongside Doles, was shared on Doles' social media on Saturday along with the caption, “Kelly Loeffler and I. Save America, stop Socialism.”
Shortly after Loeffler photo with Doles went viral, Bend the Arc,a progressive Jewish advocacy group, retweeted the picture of Loeffler smiling next to Doles along with the caption, “This is who [Loeffler] is proudly appealing to.”
