New Info About GA Sen. Kelly Loeffler’s Conflicts of Interest Emerge as She Heads to Runoff Next Week

HeadlineDec 30, 2020

Georgia Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler faces fresh charges that she and her husband personally benefited from regulatory decisions she made as a lawmaker. Mother Jones reports that, while serving on the Senate’s Subcommittee on Commodities, Loeffler took several actions that impacted the Fortune 500 company Intercontinental Exchange, known as ICE. At the time, Loeffler held millions of dollars of stock in ICE; her husband, Jeffrey Sprecher, is the company’s CEO, as well as chairman of the New York Stock Exchange. Loeffler faces Democrat Reverend Raphael Warnock in a January 5 runoff election that will determine which party controls the Senate. So far 2.3 million people have cast ballots, which is a record for voting in a Georgia runoff election.
