GOP senator’s phone snatch goes viral [Video]


Georgia Sen. David Perdue (R) reportedly grabbed a cell phone from a university student who was questioning him about potential voter suppression in the state, in a tense encounter captured on video this weekend. The senator’s office later characterized it as a misunderstanding.

The clip, uploaded to Twitter on Saturday by Georgia Tech’s Young Democratic Socialists of America chapter, shows a student walking up to Perdue to ask him about his appearance on campus to endorse Georgia secretary of state Brian Kemp (R) for governor. Kemp is in a heated battle with Democratic nominee Stacey Abrams, and drew scrutiny last week after the Associated Press reported that his office had frozen 53,000 voter registrations ahead of the midterm elections, more than 70 percent of which were linked to African Americans.
