New accounts of shady dealings by top Trump supporters @kloeffler (R-NYSE) & @sendavidperdue are breaking daily.

Articles links in thread. Bear in mind, this is just from the LAST TWO DAYS. Should be more coming, because The Grift is strong in these two #gapol #gasen 1/6
Just saw this one from @AJC 2/6…
It came on the heels of this one. 3/6 H/T @repteper…
I may not have these in chronological order, and there may be overlap, but Jeebus, so much Grift! 4/6…
Almost forgot this one. It's sleazy, too. Taking a tip from Trump. 5/6…
This was the first of the latest wave, I think, but I've only gone back ... (checks notes) ... Damn. Two days. Don't forget they both also got in hot water for trading on inside info after Senators got private briefing on #COVID back in January. 6/6…
Bottom line, from Jon @ossoff: "It's not just that you're a crook, Senator ..." BTW, views on this video are near 15 million. Just brutal. After this takedown, @perduesenate chickened out of further debates. He will be repped by an empty podium. Fitting.

Takin' it to the Street
a rally in tweets

In Chamblee @ Peachtree Blvd & Pierce Dr Saturday. Back today at noon! Handful of angry Trumpers showed up and rallied at the outhouse(!) OTOH, a nice lady came by to give us VOTE panties. She's in Deccatur today! 30K pairs involved 1/3
We win: Trumpers fled after an hour or so. This is a 73% blue area, after all. (Pro tip: use big sign to block view of theirs) I think they were mad that I was taking a picture of their retreat, but it is what it is. 2/3
Team Blue had 15 volunteers drawing attention to CORE4 early voting site from 9 am til rain. Also giving away yard signs: gave out nearly 200 so far. Come get one!

Also, photographer came by, shooting for @ACLU to document #earlyvoting. Now we're historic! 3/3

People complain Black History Month focuses on just a few historical figures & events, but here's an antidote. 20 years in the making, this monumental work is still in print. I publish excerpts occasionally (not just in Feb) but it's best to read the book…

Geoaria @GovKemp wants to rig 2020 elections by protecting @SenatorLoeffler (R-NYSE) with HB757, which would block primary losers (presumably Democrats) from her race by moving qualifying from late summer to March. @GaSecofState is his chore boy. Looks bad; they don't care 1/4
@GovKemp @SenatorLoeffler @GaSecofState A move is afoot that would shift the Senate seat qualifying period to March, with a May primary. Which makes more intuitive sense. But would force the politically struggling freshman senator to take off from a short runway. How could she even spend $20M in short time frame? 2/4
@GovKemp @SenatorLoeffler @GaSecofState Such a change--bringing the special election into normal--would actually level the playing field and take away a runoff disadvantage for Dems, as @AJC's @politicalinsidr points out. 3/4…
