NEW: Democratic Party of Georgia Files Complaints with Senate Ethics Committee and DOJ Over Loeffler’s Illegal Fundraising

November 19, 2020

Loeffler violated Senate ethics rules and federal law with her illegal fundraising while on Senate grounds

ATLANTA — Today, the Democratic Party of Georgia announced that it is filing a complaint with the Senate Ethics Committee and a request for investigation with the Department of Justice following Senator Kelly Loeffler’s illegal fundraising efforts on federal government property yesterday while appearing on national television.

Loeffler is no stranger to ethical issues, but this latest action is a clear violation of both Senate rules that “prohibit Senate members and staff from receiving or soliciting campaign contributions in any federal building” as well as federal law.

“Senator Kelly Loeffler has once again chosen to use her position of power for personal and political advantage by illegally asking for donations on national television while on federal property,” said Scott Hogan, Executive Director of the Democratic Party of Georgia. “She broke not only Senate rules but also federal law, and we’ve filed these complaints to ensure she’s held accountable for her actions.”
