GA Senate Candidates Spar Over 2002 Church Sex Abuse Probe

Welcome to Georgia: The unlikely epicenter of American politics for the next several weeks.

With the presidential election in a strange sort of stalemate at the moment, all eyes are turning to the state of Georgia, where the fate of the US Senate hangs in the balance.

At the heart of the matter are two Senate races in the Peach State, one between hyper-right Republican Kelly Loeffler, and Obama-endorsed Democrat Rev. Raphael Warnock, and the other between incumbent Senator David Perdue and his liberal challenger Jon Ossoff.

Now as these races heat up on their way to a January 5th runoff, the candidates’ pasts are coming back to haunt them in a big way.

Warnock and another minister were accused of hindering an investigation into child abuse at a church-run camp in 2002 – but charges were dropped a few months later.

“It’s no surprise that as Reverend Warnock’s support grows, the false attacks start,” a Warnock campaign spokesperson told Fox News. “The truth is, he was protecting the rights of young people to make sure they had a lawyer or a parent when being questioned. Law enforcement officials later apologized and praised him for his help in this investigation.”

But that didn’t stop Loeffler from dredging it up.

“What exactly was going on there?” asked Loeffler spokesman Stephen Lawson. “What was the nature of the child abuse? What was his involvement? If he wants Georgia voters to believe anything he says, he needs to come clean and explain what happened.”

Georgia was an unexpected swing state in the 2020 election, with their electoral votes expected to go to Joe Biden once the results are certified.  This has give Democrats in GA hope that they can also flip the US Senate by electing both Ossoff and Warnock – something that will bring politicos of all shapes and sizes to Atlanta and beyond in the coming weeks.
