Democrats are still hoping that they can win the Senate.
But their candidate has a history with the law that makes it an uphill battle.
This shocking arrest could be the end of Chuck Schumer’s hopes.
The Senate majority is going to come down to two highly contested Georgia runoff elections.
“Now we take Georgia, then we change the world,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said. “Now we take Georgia, then we change America.”
If Democrats gain the Senate, they will be able to carry out radical plans which is why money is pouring into the elections.
However, Georgia Democrat senatorial candidate Raphael Warnock has multiple arrests on his record but the circumstances under which he was arrested in 2002 are by far the most serious.
Arkansas GOP Senator Tom Cotton asked the media if any of them will question Warnock on his arrest in 2002 for allegedly obstructing a police investigation into suspected child abuse at his church’s camp.
Cotton tweeted, “In 2002, when the police investigated suspected child abuse at Raphael Warnock’s church camp for children, Warnock was arrested for obstructing the investigation. Will the media ask Raphael Warnock why he interfered with the police investigation?”
Cotton added in a follow-up post: “If a Republican helped run a camp for children that was investigated for child abuse—and then was arrested for trying to block the investigation—the media would be asking a lot of questions.”
Warnock, who was senior pastor of the West Baltimore church in 2002, was charged with trying to prevent a state trooper from interviewing counselors.
“The ministers interrupted a police interview of a counselor Wednesday in a room at the camp and, after investigators moved the interview to a nearby picnic area, interfered again and subsequently tried to prevent a camper from directing police to another potential witness, according to charging documents,” the Baltimore Sun reported at the time.
The camp served 300 inner-city children each year.
Trooper Diane Barry of the state police Child and Sexual Assault Unit said, “I’ve never encountered resistance like that at all.” She pointed out that the counselors were informed they could leave at any time but still consented to be interviewed.
If the media doesn’t report this shocking arrest then they are failing at their job.
The charges against Warnock were dropped after a few months.
Warnock was arrested twice more in 2014 and 2017 for protesting.
He’s a radical liberal so the Democrats and the mainstream media will probably overlook the fact that he allegedly failed to put the safety of children first.
The Democrats claim that they are a more moral political party than Republicans but they aren’t willing to actually hold their candidates to any sort of standards.
Joe Biden allegedly assaulted one of his Senate staffers in 1996 and the media didn’t even demand that he open up his records to see whether there was basis for her accusations.
The Democrats are hypocritical in the extreme and it’s time for the media to stop letting them get away with everything.
