BREAKING: Democrat Candidate Jon Ossoff LIED About Security Clearance

Pants on Fire

Lying about your past is a quick way to get in trouble, especially as a Congressional candidate. It’s even worse when you make your story as flimsy as GA-6 Democratic Candidate Jon Ossoff did!

Currently running in a special election to replace HHS Sec. Tom Price, Ossoff has based his campaign largely on the strength of his national security credentials.

Since Ossoff announced his campaign to fill the seat vacated by Tom Price earlier this year, he has leaned on his supposed five years as a “national security aide with top-secret clearance.” The claim has been made in campaign ads, during campaign events, and even in his campaign announcement.

The Washington Free Beaconreported last week that Ossoff’s claim was dubious. Ossoff was a 19-year-old student at Georgetown University when he began working as a part-time staffer for Rep. Hank Johnson (D., Ga.), but security clearances are generally granted only to permanent staffers. He was not made a full-time staffer for another two years.

Ossoff’s campaign did not respond to Washington Free Beacon requests for more information about his time working in Johnson’s office, but provided local reporters with a timeline that shows Ossoff worked for just over two years as a full-time aide—and worked only five months with top-secret clearance.

Ossoff’s campaign has worked to spread these lies by misleading other news outlets as well.

With early voting underway, it’s hard to tell how these new revelations will impact the election but voters deserve to know the character of the men and women they’re electing!
