Collins faces new ethics scandal sparked from within his own party after Loeffler has spent the past month dealing with the fallout from her coronavirus stock trades
ATLANTA — A bombshell new report from the National Journal revealed that State Representative David Clark, a Gov.* Brian Kemp ally and Speaker David Ralston opponent, has filed multiple ethics complaints against top Trump ally Congressman Doug Collins as Republicans enter “a new chapter” in their intraparty feud.
Clark’s complaint claims Collins violated ethics rules against using House floor footage for political purposes as part of his paid media. It also comes after unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler has spent the past month embroiled in an ethics scandal of her own over her coronavirus stock trades.
But Collins is not alone in potentially using public office for political benefit either. Loeffler had previously come under fire this week (including from Collins) for a report detailing her use of coronavirus relief efforts “for political gain” to assist her flailing campaign. Now, as both candidates enter this “new chapter” in their bitter intraparty brawl, Georgians can only expect this fight to get even meaner as both Collins and Loeffler desperately try to stay ahead of their ethical scandals.
