Things are really going well for Senate Republicans in the two Georgia runoffs due to take place on Jan. 5. Not only are Republicans in the middle of an epic civil war over the state’s election results, they are now rallying around two candidates who appear to specialize in abusing their power for personal gain. In fact, the ethics scandals of Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue have been so prolific, we decided a side-by-side comparison was in order.
We undertake the comparison with the understanding that Perdue starts with a built-in advantage of having been a sitting senator since 2015 while Loeffler has been clawing her way into contention for barely a year now. But Loeffler has really given it the ol’ college try, doing her level best to leverage her relatively new seat at the table.
