Her ads say she's a strong conservative woman and then go on to say how much money she spent or donated to causes and they do mention her private jet.  Don't mention the 1 mil donation to donnie's PAC.  She slept her way to riches just like you know who.No one knows why kemp selected her but most imagine it has a money payout in it somewhere.  She is truly deserving of the c word.

Free enterprise is the GOP code word for insider trading and graft.

At least she is honest about being self-serving.  Not that she does not deserver a Guile-style crotch kick.

Just more opportunity to flip Georgia and the U.S. Senate blue.  By all means?  Stay in.
 
2020-05-22 10:48:56 AM  
She has a lot of money and she's crooked as shiat.  Of course she's likely to win.
 
2020-05-22 10:49:32 AM  
Prison seems an appropriate place for her. Would also serve as a good example for others.

I like how Loeffler even stole Trump's wordmark on her campaign signs, as she simply attempts to leach onto him.

The funny thing is that this past Wednesday was the first time I ever saw a sign for her anywhere, strangely enough in South Cobb County. Granted, I live in Athens, which is most decidedly not her stronghold.

A senator shouldn't be married to the head of a stock exchange anyways.

There are so many evil people in the world, you guys really can't find anyone competent to assist in the grifting?  Horsefaced trophy wives are really the tools you're gonna use?

You know: one of those half-billion in net worth, married to a chair of the NEW YORK Stock Exchange, few million in stock trades she can't remember making (at something of a critical moment in the country), will fight for the little guy, anti-elitist women of the people.

She can say all she wants, her ass will get voted out in November. People are laughing at her latest commercial.

I'm glad she's staying in. She's damaged goods and this will just increase her Democratic opponents chances.

Interesting indeed
 
2020-05-22 11:14:27 AM  
What a load of malarkey. Truth has a liberal bias - sorry, but not sorry - and Insider trading has f*** all to do with "free enterprise". What? Liberals don't like markets? Running businesses? Complete horses***. And, yet, there are far too many who will believe it. Because that's where we are, now.

Everything to do with it, hoss. It's in the Ur-text of Free Marketry, even - Adam Smith made "informational symmetry" between buyer(s) and seller(s) a keystone of his economic theory, and had VERY unkind words for people who manipulated withheld that information.

Rapmaster2000: She's getting primaried.


I was gonna let this subtle joke slide, but since someone smarted it, I have to clear the air.

She's not facing a primary but rather is in a jungle special election in November (since she was never elected in the first place, but rather appointed).

The most recent poll has her in 4th with 12%, behind Known Idiot Doug Collins (34%), and two Democrats (Raphael Warnock, a local pastor with 18% and Matt Lieberman (yes, Joe's kid) with 14%).

The implication is more that she's facing significant Republican opposition.

And they just preempted Price is Right so we can see Kelly, Kemp, and Pence standing around at Dobbins.  I guess they're headed to Waffle House HQ.  This is excruciatingly dull.

Really, free enterprise?

So tell me: What products did your insider trading knowledge helped produce?

That is correct.

In GA we will vote for two senators this November: Perdue's term is up this November on the regular six year scale, which it's looking like either Tomlinson or Ossoff will win the primary.

Loeffler's seat is temporary and whoever wins it will face a re-election bid in 2022, as they were filling in Isakson's seat from 2016 originally.

Riiiiight, the "liberal media." That bullshiat deflection has worked for so many others caught being stupid and/or criminal, I can't really blame her for giving it a shot.

Sweet. Let the investigations ride out and drag the GOP down even more. I'm all for it
 
2020-05-22 12:22:10 PM  
also just to clarify, her staying in is the best (but still very slim) shot at a Democrat taking that seat. If she were to drop out, its far more likely that Collins wins outright without the need for a runoff. Conversely, that latest poll shows both Warnock and Lieberman even in a head to head matchup against Collins if it did go to a runoff.
