ATLANTA — This New Year’s Eve officially marks the end of the sixth full year that Senator David Perdue has gone without hosting a single public town hall for Georgians, refusing to face accountability from his constituents. Perdue has hid from everyday Georgia voters for the past six years while selling access to meetings on his private island for a $7,500 contribution and facing heavy scrutiny for financial abuses and shady stock trades he has made in industries he oversees as a senator.
“Not only has Perdue refused to hold a single town hall in six years, he’s ducked and dodged reporters at every turn amid corrupt stock trading scandals and repeated financial abuses,” said Braxton Brewington, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “It’s not just that Perdue hides, it’s that he only allows access to the wealthy and corporations who can afford to write his campaign big checks. Georgians deserve a senator who will show up for all of them, not just those who can afford to buy access.”
Here’s 13 times just this year that Perdue was called out for ducking accountability and avoiding Georgians:
