CNN’s Jake Tapper confronted Democrat Georgia candidate John Ossoff with a claim he made rated false by CNN against his opponent, Republican Kelly Loeffler.
“Just to be clear, she was not campaigning with a klansman. That wasn’t true, what you said.”
Even Jake Tapper said:
“Just to be clear, she was not campaigning with a klansman. That wasn't true, what you said."
Why won’t Twitter won’t flag @ossoff’s Tweet like they do to Republicans?

Wednesday, Ossoff made the false claim that “Kelly Loeffler has been campaigning with a Klansman.”
“Here’s the bottom line, Kelly Loeffler has been campaigning with a klansman,” Ossoff falsely claimed “and so she is stooping to these vicious personal attacks to distract from the fact that she’s been campaigning with a former member of the Ku Klux Klan.”

Unfortunately for Ossoff, this claim was quickly fact checked as FALSE by CNN.
