TBT: The Other Time That Privileged Liberal Jon Ossoff Flip-Flopped
This week, privileged liberal Jon Ossoff has found himself mired in controversy after spinelessly flip-flopping on whether he supports defunding the police. But this wasn’t the first time Ossoff was forced to reverse his position on an issue of consequence to Georgians.
During his failed $30 million campaign for Congress in 2017, Ossoff stated his support for expanding joint basing at the Department of Defense. But Ossoff was forced to flip-flop after it was revealed that this proposal could have cost 26,000 jobs in Georgia while weakening our national security. Ossoff supported this policy despite his claims of being a national security expert, which were debunked as resume “puffery” by a Washington Post fact checker.
Just as he did with joint basing in 2017, Ossoff appears to have changed his position on defunding the police due to political considerations, not because of his personal convictions.
“Time and again throughout his political career, Jon Ossoff has shown an alarming inability to present his views on matters of public security with consistency and conviction,” said Perdue for Senate Communications Director John Burke. “His repeated flip-flops on issues from joint basing to funding our law enforcement shows that he is nothing more than a typical politician who can’t be trusted to stand up for Georgia families.”
