Warnock - Corruption, cronyism, quid pro quo? And will it matter?

Are GA Dems proud to have this guy as their senator from Georgia? 

 

My reading it that Warnock is getting hammered with issues related to his church and this apartment complex. This can only add to his woes in that regard. The key question is whether such potential impropriety will lead to votes for Walker or just abstentions. 

Warnock Steered $16 Million to Project That Benefited Co-Owner of Church’s Controversial Apartment Complex

Georgia Democratic senator Raphael Warnock steered $16.4 million in federal earmarks to a project that benefited the co-owner of his controversial low-income apartment complex.

 

The funding was intended to construct a trail connecting a residential and commercial complex known as "Pittsburgh Yards" with other portions of Atlanta's BeltLine. The developer of Pittsburgh Yards is Columbia Ventures, part of the Columbia group of companies that co-owns and operates a low-income housing complex with Warnock's church.

 

The funding raises questions about whether Warnock's business relationship with Columbia had any bearing on his funding decision. Warnock did not respond to a request for comment.

 

Warnock's Ebenezer Baptist Church, where he serves as senior pastor and CEO, in 2005 "formed a partnership with Columbia Residential to rehabilitate [a] dilapidated high-rise" and turned the building into low-income apartments. Ebenezer and Columbia are co-owners of the business through a joint venture, with Ebenezer owning 99 percent and Columbia owning the remaining 1 percent, according to a state grant application filed by the entities in August.

 

Last November, Warnock and Sen. Jon Ossoff (D., Ga.) announced that they had helped secure the funding for the trail project, which would "construct approximately two miles of the Southside Trail component of the Atlanta BeltLine from Pittsburgh Yards to Boulevard Crossing Park."

 

"When we connect our communities with pedestrian and bike trails, we provide a pathway for residents to enjoy local green spaces and invest in small businesses," said Warnock in a press release. "We bolster social and economic mobility for hardworking Georgians when we make strong federal investments in projects like the Atlanta BeltLine, and I look forward to securing more infrastructure investments like this one for other vital transportation projects in Atlanta and across our state."

Nope.  As long as the MSM shields voters from the truth, it doesn't matter.

No it will not matter. Just like Fetterman’s or Biden’s cognitive situation. 
 

Democrat voters are smart enough to know they need Democrat politicians to advance the Democrat agenda. 
 

Republicans cannot seem to figure that out.

And Walker keeps trying to give it back.

All he needs to do is just shut up and he keeps eating his shoes.

 

Very strange dynamic going on down there.    :headscratch:

1. Let’s reframe the question- would you be proud to have either one of them?

 

2. Warnock is getting hammered by whom?  The Washington Free Beacon?   Hotair?  Conservative News Daily?  Vol Nation?    All of which ran the same story verbatim.

 

Do all these combined carry the reach of the Atlanta Journal Constitution?

 

0-6.  There is a reason for it.  I am here to help.

Got to love the "you don't know what's going on in Georgia because you don't live there" angle from someone who also doesn't live in Georgia. :laugh:

Last night on a Fox News interview.

 

Maybe if he had done something else with this erection he might not have the women issues he has.

A black Democrat pastor is above the law. 


The Rev. Warnock has much in common with the Rev. Sharpton and the Rev. Jackson 


Fraudulent Men of God
