McBath fundraising off ‘regularly attacked with falsehoods’ of Son’s Murder


Rep. Lucy McBath (D-Ga.) tweeted out Wednesday a link to fundraise for her reelection campaign in response to comment from a local GOP official who said her son had been killed in a “drug deal gone bad.”

“A local GOP official said my son was killed in a “drug deal gone bad.” He later said Jordan was murdered by one of his “thug friends,” McBath wrote on twitter with a screen shot of Georgia Republican Paul Maner Facebook post. “Paul — let me be clear: This is pathetic. I am regularly attacked with falsehoods, so please – help me fight back.”

“THIS is what the lunatics like Lucy McBath for Congress Rep. Lucy McBath are all about,” Maner tweeted. “If her son hadn’t been involved with a drug deal gone bad, her son might still be alive today. Her solution, to disarm everyone who is a law abiding citizen.”

McBath responded on Twitter, writing over several tweets that she can’t “respond to these attacks alone, & we must respond to those who spread lies about me & my family,” while tweeting out a link from ActBlue requesting donations to her campaign.

The freshman congresswoman also retweeted fellow Democrats tweets including, Georgia Senate candidate Jon Ossoff, and founder of Moms Demand, Shannon Watts that all tweeted links to contribute to her campaign.

McBath ran for Congress in 2018 on a gun-control platform, unseating the GOP incumbent, former Rep. Karen Handel, marking the first time a Democrat has won in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District in more than 30 years.
