In major violation of Senate ethics rules, Loeffler asks for “five or ten bucks” while giving an interview in the Senate halls
ATLANTA — Today, unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler committed a clear ethics rules violation by fundraising in the halls of Congress during an interview on Fox News.
Sen. Loeffler: Well look, we know that hundreds of millions of dark, liberal money is pouring into our state. That’s why it’s so important that everyone across the country get involved. They can visit KellyforSenate.com to chip in 5 or 10 bucks, and get involved, volunteer.
Previously, top Loeffler supporter Senator Lindsey Graham committed a similar “clear violation of Senate ethics rules” when he also fundraised in the Senate during an interview, directing voters to his campaign website and claiming “a little bit goes a long way.” But Loeffler went even farther than Graham, however, asking explicitly for “five or ten bucks” while on federal government property.
“This kind of shameless fundraising in the halls of the Senate is a clear ethics violation, and yet another example of how Senator Kelly Loeffler is looking out for herself,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “It’s been months since Senator Loeffler has taken action to help Georgians impacted by the pandemic, and instead of using her time in Washington to fight for coronavirus relief, she’s doing what she thinks is best for her political campaign.”
