Members of the Georgia Republican Party this week said the media must ask U.S. Senate candidate Raphael Warnock a list of specific questions about his past.
Georgia GOP members, in a press release, submitted the questions that they want the media to ask.
“Earlier this week, a firsthand account confirmed the child abuse that occurred under Raphael Warnock’s purview at Camp Farthest Out in the early 2000s. Just last week, newly uncovered police bodycam footage revealed deeply troubling domestic abuse allegations from Raphael Warnock’s ex-wife,” according to the press release.
“Warnock has yet to be asked a serious question about these allegations. The media has deprived Georgians of critical answers as they prepare to decide who represents them in the Senate and determines the future of our country.”
Members of Warnock’s staff did not return The Georgia Star News’ request for comment Thursday.
Georgia GOP spokeswoman Abigail Sigler said in the press release that “the allegations that have surfaced over the last week involving Raphael Warnock are deeply disturbing and run counter to the very image that Warnock has concocted for himself.”
“The news media owe it to Georgians to ask him even the most basic questions about it,” Sigler said.
“Georgians are about to decide who they want to represent them in Washington, and in which direction they want our country to be taken. They deserve to know who the real Raphael Warnock is – and it’s the media’s job to examine every credible charge. At this point, we can only surmise that the media’s failure to uphold this responsibility is designed to influence the outcome of this election.”
Sigler submitted the following questions that she said the media should ask of Warnock:
• Does Raphael Warnock know Anthony Washington?
• Is Warnock aware that urine was thrown on Washington while he was a camper at Camp Farthest Out?
• Is Warnock aware that Washington was forced to sleep outside while he was a camper at Camp Farthest Out?
Warnock and Jon Ossoff, both Democrats, want to represent Georgia in the U.S. Senate.
As reported, U.S. Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) and U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), are on the January 5, 2021 ballot for the U.S. Senate against Ossoff and Warnock, respectively.
