    It’s just a campaigning strategy, they’ve been hammering Loeffler on the stock sell off after the COVID briefing. She’s the richest person in congress, so the numbers are insane for what she sold off. Even though he isn’t running against her, going after her seems to be a successful strategy with how that race went.

    His stuff honestly sounds worse. But being able to say “$18 million” just catches a lot more people’s eye.

    Is it as bad or worse than what Martha Stewart went to jail for? Probably worse.

    the letter he wrote, on tax legislation he had no involvement with, to push for Sports Owners to get further massive tax breaks will have a much better chance to stick because the self-dealing stock trades have the facade of "Well my financial planner..."

    I’m a complete political novice especially in comparison to you, but...

    Isn’t that a more complex/difficult topic to explain to voters in this climate? With post-truth politics being as effective as it is, wouldn’t the brute force accusation that includes the absurd numbers ($18 mill, etc) associated with an easily understood mechanism (‘insider’ trading) be more sticky?

    IMO it has as much complexity as the great 2016 email server hygiene debate of 2016. Or the steps you have to reach to say Ossoff is paid by the Chinese Government. IMO you try. Cobb Voters are keen on handouts to sports teams. North fulton voters are too.

    Just frame it as, Perdue wanted [x] # handouts and tax breaks to his billionaire friends. Then fine print the advert at the bottom with propublica dated 11/19/20. Etc etc.
