As election day nears in heated senate races, wild things tend to happen. Ridiculous ads, personal attacks, and sometimes…Brady Bunch parodies.

Georgia Rep. Doug Collins is running against appointed Senator Kelly Loeffler, who took the seat in January when Former Senator John Isakson resigned from his third term over health concerns.

The video calls out Loeffler’s past donations to Democratic candidates which has been a frequent line of attack.

Reports have found, however, that Loeffler has donated to both Republicans and Democrats in the past — and Democrats received little of the funds. Fox Business reported “out of the $3.2 million Loeffler and Sprecher have donated to political action committees, less than 3 percent went to Democratic candidates or causes.”

Collins has also called out the activities of the Women’s National Basketball Association team she co-owns, the Atlanta Dream.

Loeffler is in hot water after she announced her opposition to the measures her team was taking to promote Black Lives Matter. She proposed instead of jerseys saying, “Black Lives Matter” or “Say Her Name” that the team should be opt for more American themed uniforms.

“The truth is, we need less—not more politics in sports,” Loeffler said. “In a time when polarizing politics is as divisive as ever, sports has the power to be a unifying antidote.”

New York’s Democratic party is battling over the constitutionality of voter laws. On December 9, the New York City Council will vote on a law to allow green-card holders and residents with work permits to vote in municipal elections.

“Around 808,000 New York City residents who have work permits or are lawful permanent residents would be eligible to vote under the legislation, which has the support of 34 of 51 council members, a veto-proof majority” reports Fox News.

“It’s important for the Democratic Party to look at New York City and see that when voting rights are being attacked, we are expanding voter participation,” Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez, a sponsor of the bill and Democrat who represents the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan, told the New York Times. Rodriguez immigrated from the Dominican Republic and became a U.S. citizen in 2000.

Fox News reports:

Laura Wood, Chief Democracy Officer for the mayor’s office, said at a hearing on the bill in September that the law could violate the New York State Constitution, which states that voters must be U.S. citizens age 18 or older.

Mayor Bill de Blasio indicated he could veto the bill following the September hearing.
“We’ve done everything that we could possibly get our hands on to help immigrant New Yorkers—including undocumented folks—but…I don’t believe it is legal,” de Blasio told WNYC radio at the time.

Mayor-elect Eric Adams, however, submitted testimony to the September hearing in favor of the bill. “In a democracy, nothing is more fundamental than the right to vote and to say who represents you and your community in elected office…Currently, almost one million New Yorkers are denied this foundational right.”

The legislation was first introduced two years ago, but had not yet gained traction due to the legal concerns.
