NEW: Loeffler STILL Won’t Answer Who Manages Her Stock Transactions

April 6, 2020

Loeffler: “I can’t say anything that I would have done differently” on stock trades, still no answers for Georgians about her transactions

ATLANTA — Unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler says plenty in a new Washington Post profile — but she still won’t say who makes her stock transactions or provide answers about how her portfolio is managed, coming just days after an AJC report on how “questions remain” about her stock trading claims. Instead, she only says that she “can’t say anything that I would have done differently” on her widely-criticized stock transactions.

Rather than answering Georgia voters’ critical questions about her stock trading in the middle of a pandemic, Loeffler focused on proving once again just how out-of-touch she is with everyday Georgians. Here are some of the highlights from Loeffler and company on how she views the “minefield” of scandals that have greeted her since Day One, from her stock trading conflicts to her secretive private jet:

  • Loeffler on her stock trades during the coronavirus outbreak: “I can’t say anything that I would have done differently.”
  • Loeffler on workers: “Our Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators. People who would come from the private sector, have that experience, understand what’s it like — not to sign the back of a paycheck, but the front of a paycheck.”

And after all of her scandals and out-of-touch behavior, how does Loeffler see herself? “I’m probably more in touch than the majority of people in Washington.” We can only imagine what that says about her fellow Republican Senate colleagues facing their own congressional stock trading scandals.
