American Democracy Legal Fund President Brad Woodhouse released the following statement on Senator Kelly Loeffler’s announcement she would be cashing in her stock portfolio:
“After using her privileged position as a United States Senator to make money off a deadly outbreak, Senator Kelly Loeffler is cashing out. But while Senator Loeffler may think this P.R. stunt will put these matters to rest, this scandal is far from over.
“Senator Loeffler’s alleged insider trading is clearly unethical and likely illegal. We renew our call for the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Justice Department, and the Senate Ethics Committee to investigate the very serious allegations against Senator Loeffler. We also urge Senator Loeffler to do the right thing and resign so Georgia can have a Senator focused on helping them through this crisis, not herself.”
