Atlanta, GA – Warnock for Georgia spokesman Michael Brewer issued the following statement on Kelly Loeffler trying to distance herself from a known white supremacist:
“While Kelly Loeffler runs a campaign based on dividing and misleading Georgians, she is once again trying to distance herself from someone who is a known white supremacist and former KKK leader who nearly beat a Black man to death. There’s no acceptable explanation for it happening once, let alone a second time.”
This is not the first time Loeffler has had to try to explain why Chester Doles, a longtime white supremacist who spent decades in the Ku Klux Klan and the neo-Nazi National Alliance and is associated with a racist skinhead gang, is appearing at her campaign events. When Doles went to a GOP rally in September, Loeffler claimed she was “unaware of Doles or the controversy over his attendance.” Today, just weeks later, Loeffler’s campaign is again trying to use the same excuse that they “had no idea who that was.”
