Georgia Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock and GOP candidate Herschel Walker are set to undergo a runoff election on December 6. Warnock is currently ahead with 49% of the vote, but a candidate must surpass 50% to avoid a runoff. Warnock allegedly directed over $60,000 dollars in “childcare” from his campaign, an abuse of Federal Election Commission guidelines. The Senator has previously faced condemnation for evicting tenants living in an apartment complex affiliated with the church he pastors.
From Conservative Brief:
“Since early 2020, 12 eviction lawsuits have been filed against residents of Columbia Tower at MLK Village, which Warnock’s church owns 99% of. The average rent owed by the residents clocked in at just $125 a month. The building has received over $15 million in taxpayer funding,” he said. ... According to a report by the Washington Free Beacon, Warnock’s Ebenezer Baptist Church, where the senator serves as a senior pastor, “drawing a salary as well as a generous $7,417 monthly housing allowance—has moved to evict disadvantaged residents from an apartment building it owns, one of whom it tried to push out on account of merely $28.55 in past-due rent.” This, after Warnock noted on Twitter as he campaigned for his office in 2020: “Unemployment benefits have expired, rent is due today, and many Georgia families are at risk of eviction in the middle of a pandemic,” adding that by failing to act, his political opponents were “clearly only concerned with serving their own interests.”
