Democrat congressional candidate for Georgia Jon Ossoff has banned a conservative media outlet, the Washington Free Beacon, from his campaign event the night before the election. Ossoff has been seen as a globalist shill from the beginning of the race, who can’t explain why he received most of his donations from California, and why he doesn’t even live in the district in which he is running.
Brent Scher, a writer for the Free Beacon, was removed from the campaign event, for no clear reason. When he asked why he wasn’t allowed to stay, Democrat communications staffer Sacha Haworth only answered, “Thank you for your interest in covering the race.”

The Daily Caller reports:
Scher told TheDC that the campaign event was filled with reporters from other news organizations. The Free Beacon, it seems, was singled out for special treatment.
The campaign did not immediately return a request for comment.
Scher’s coverage of Ossoff’s campaign has included stories about Ossoff’s staggering amount of campaign contributions from out-of-state donors as well as a fact-check of Ossoff’s claim that he only lives “down the street” from Georgia’s Sixth District. (Ossoff doesn’t live in the district in which he is a candidate.)
Ossoff claimed this week that voters don’t care that he doesn’t live in the district, insisting that, “It’s just not a major issue in the race.”
