Project Veritas has released recordings in which insiders of Georgia Democrat Senate candidate Raphael Warnock’s campaign revealed that Warnock is sympathetic to the “Defund the Police” movement — despite his prior denial of the accusation.
With less than 48 hours until the Georgia Senate runoff election — which will decide whether the GOP or Democrats control the Senate — this bombshell could significantly impact the outcome of that election.
Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe tweeted Monday morning:
BREAKING: @ReverendWarnock Staff Admit Candidate’s Bias Against Police “
Police officers are not all good…Most of them are bad, WE know that.”
“He avoids using defunding the police…in reality his whole platform is along the lines of the same people saying defund the police”
O’Keefe’s tweet was accompanied by audio recordings proving the assertion.

Warnock Campaign staffer Derrick Bhole admitted that the far-left Democrat’s campaign avoids touchy buzzwords and phrases like “Defund the police” in public in order to prevent Republicans from latching on, but it’s clear where Warnock stands on the issue.
Bhole explained: “In reality, his whole platform with police reform is along the lines of the same people who are saying defund the police.”
Warnock, who is challenging incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), has come under heavy fire since November for his radical leftist positions on a number of hot-button issues such as abortion, the military, and law enforcement.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) warned in an op-ed published on Fox News on Monday that Warnock — and fellow Georgia Democrat Senate challenger Jon Ossoff — “have no business representing any state in Congress.”
“Despite the legacy media’s attempts to bury any negative evidence of their checkered pasts, it’s clear that both Warnock and Ossoff are wholly unqualified to be U.S. senators,” said Rubio. “Georgia voters would be right to reject their candidacies outright even if the balance of the Senate wasn’t on the ballot.”
