Staffers for Democratic Senate candidate Raphael Warnock were captured on undercover video saying the candidate wants to defund the police.
“He avoids using defunding the police, because he knows that the Republicans are going to try to grab onto it and attack, right? But in reality, his whole platform with police reform is along the lines of the same people who are saying ‘defund the police,’” Derrick Bhole, a campaign aide, said in part of the video.
“You know police officers are not all good, you know what I’m saying? Most of them are bad, we know that,” said Sasha Williams, another Warnock campaign worker. Asked later if Warnock wants to defund the police, she said, “Absolutely!”
The video was released on Monday by Project Veritas, a journalism watchdog that primarily targets Democrats.
Warnock is vying for the seat currently held by Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.). The Senate runoff election takes place on Jan. 5.
Michael Brewer, a spokesperson for Warnock’s campaign, told The Epoch Times in an emailed statement: “Reverend Warnock does not support defunding the police and Georgians know that. They also know Kelly Loeffler won’t fight against false claims of voter fraud, won’t respect Georgia’s voters or stand up for Georgia’s election, and won’t fight to get a vote on giving Georgians a much-needed $2,000 relief payment, which is why they will vote her out tomorrow.”
Loeffler has pushed the idea that Warnock supports slashing funding for the police.
On “Fox News Sunday,” she said people know what agenda Democrats have because Democratic Senate Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) “told us he was going to take Georgia and then change America.”
“And we know that radical agenda is not just high taxes, open borders, defunding the police, government-run health care,” she said, calling Warnock “someone that would fundamentally change this country.”
