SENATE SELLOUTS: Democratic Party of Georgia Launches Timeline of Perdue and Loeffler’s Stock Trading Scandals

June 22, 2020

As Georgians struggled with a growing pandemic, Perdue and Loeffler downplayed the threat while trading stocks during the coronavirus outbreak

ATLANTA — “Establishment player” Senator David Perdue and unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler have spent weeks trying to distract and spin their way out of their stock trading scandals. But while Georgians were trying to protect their health in the coronavirus outbreak, Perdue and Loeffler were apparently more focused on protecting their assets.

Today, three months after news first broke about their coronavirus stock trading, the Democratic Party of Georgia is launching a new website, SenateSellouts.com, which breaks down the timeline of Perdue and Loeffler’s unseemly trades while tracking new developments in their scandals. Both Perdue and Loeffler have continued to leave questions unanswered while blaming anyone and everyone but themselves for their trading. Now, Georgians can keep track of these senators’ focus on their portfolios, not working families.

“Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler repeatedly downplayed the coronavirus while selling off stocks and investing in companies poised to benefit from the pandemic — and Georgia Democrats are ready to hold them accountable,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “With all the developments and details in their scandals, SenateSellouts.com will allow Georgians to track the ‘unseemly’ transactions Perdue and Loeffler made during this pandemic, alongside their repeated efforts to downplay the virus’ devastating effects.”
