There’s a special election in Georgia this year for a Senate seat currently being filled by Kelly Loeffler. Loeffler is the Trump Blonde and millionaire appointed to the Senate seat by Gov. Brian Kemp last year. The special election is a primary and general election all in one, a free-for-all with 21 candidates running, including Loeffler. She really wants to retain the seat, and she thinks the best way to do that is by touting her 100% Trump voting record. She thinks Georgia voters want to elect someone “more conservative than Attila the Hun.” Which is why this ad happened:
Now here's an ad for you: Sen. Kelly Loeffler's new spot is all about how she's "more conservative than Attila the Hun," and includes an actor portraying a grunting Attila who delivers orders to, among other things, "eliminate the liberal scribes." pic.twitter.com/080nIJGwng

People do not understand history and it’s such a problem in this country. I used to love history and I still love to bury myself in a well-written historical book. The idea that this Trumpian Treason B is comparing herself to Attila the Hun AND making ads talking about “eliminating the liberal scribes”? Jesus H. And I’m left to wonder if that kind of sh-t would work better in, say, Alabama or Mississippi. Georgia trends purple with each new election cycle. I would love to see this POS thrown out.
Loeffler is also one of the senators accused (rightly) of insider trading at the start of the pandemic. The Senate Ethics oversight dismissed the investigation but that was merely a formality. She was profiting from her insider knowledge of the virus.
