ATLANTA — In a desperate attempt to save his flailing campaign, Senator David Perdue has resorted to spouting lies about both his Democratic opponent, Jon Ossoff, and Perdue’s own record on critical issues facing hard-working Georgians. Ahead of a tightening race where Senator Perdue’s dim reelection bid “teeter[s] on a knife’s edge,” Perdue’s hopeless campaign is relying on “outrageously false accusations,” because after six years in Washington, he can’t defend his toxic record of selling out Georgians.
Here’s a rundown of just some of the lies Senator Perdue and his allies have been caught telling in this race:
Perdue lied about supporting protections for people with pre-existing conditions.
Perdue lied about his opponent, Jon Ossoff, falsely claiming he was endorsed by the Communist Party.
Perdue lied about his opponent, Jon Ossoff, falsely claiming he supports defunding the police and closing military bases.
Perdue’s allies lie and say Jon Ossoff has connections to terrorism.
Perdue lied about enlarging the nose of his opponent, Jon Ossoff, evoking an age-old anti-Semitic trope.
“Senator Perdue has resorted to telling lies and making up stories because his record on key issues is not just unpopular, it’s harmful to Georgians with pre-existing conditions and the Georgia families who are still suffering from the economic and health impacts of this pandemic,” said Braxton Brewington, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “How desperate must Senator Perdue be to lie to Georgia families?”
