Savannah Morning News editorial says “Justice Department and…Securities and Exchange Commission should get involved” in investigating Loeffler and Burr’s “potentially illicit profiteering”
ATLANTA — In a recent editorial, the Savannah Morning News is calling for investigations of senators including Kelly Loeffler who appear to have engaged in “potentially illicit profiteering,” saying that not looking into Loeffler’s apparent self-dealing would be “irresponsible.”
The Savannah Morning News goes on to claim that, “Instead of rising to the call, our public servants played politics,” saying that Loeffler appeared to “grossly abuse” her Senate privileges in her stock sell-off scandal.
This editorial joins a wide chorus of condemnation for Loeffler’s actions, including a scathing editorial from the New York Times calling for a full ethics investigation “and, if warranted…criminal prosecution” for Loeffler — not to mention criticism from members of her own party over behavior that makes her “unfit” to govern as Loeffler and her allies struggle to “tamp down the national eruption” over her selloff scandal.
