Loeffler’s claims to “save taxpayer money” with her private jet yet another broken promise as the unelected senator spends thousands on commercial flights
ATLANTA — A new report from Salon today reveals that unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler “has taken at least two dozen taxpayer-backed commercial flights…back and forth to Washington after claiming her personal airplane was an asset that benefited the people she served.”
Despite Loeffler’s original claims that her secretive private jet — which may also be a “flying tax shelter” thanks to Republicans’ tax giveaway to the wealthy — would “save taxpayer money,” Loeffler has billed taxpayers for thousands of dollars worth of commercial flights over the past several months.
But even as she continues flying commercial at taxpayer expense, Loeffler is happy to use her tax write-off of a private jet for other purposes, like “an 18-minute hop from a central Georgia town to Savannah, on the Atlantic coast” for her struggling campaign.
“It’s no surprise that Senator Kelly Loeffler has broken yet another promise to put Georgians first — and instead has flown herself around at taxpayers’ expense when she doesn’t feel like gassing up her private jet,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “But while Senator Loeffler takes taxpayer money for herself, she has spent months fighting against critical relief measures like unemployment insurance expansion for Georgians.”
