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.
