Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) saw his income more than double during his first year in the Senate, according to his recently filed financial disclosure.

The $164,816 salary Warnock received from the Senate in 2021 represented just a fraction of the total income he earned throughout the year, his financial disclosure shows. The Georgia Democrat also received $120,965 for his service as the head pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta and a $243,750 advance for his memoir, "A Way Out of No Way."

Warnock's combined income of $532,781 in 2021 is more than double the $221,601 he earned in 2020 before he defeated former Georgia GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler in early 2021, the Washington Free Beaconreported.

Warnock had criticized Loeffler during his 2020 campaign for using her position in the Senate for her personal enrichment.


Raphael Warnock on Loeffler: "I'm OK with the fact that she wants to make money. I just think you shouldn't use the people's seat to enrich yourself. You should use the people's seat to represent the people." — Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) December 7, 2020

Warnock took advantage of a little-known Senate loophole to rake so much from Ebenezer Baptist Church in 2021.

House and Senate rules prohibit lawmakers from earning more than 15% of their congressional pay in outside salary, which in Warnock's case would have been around $25,000 in 2021.

But Warnock was able to collect $120,965 from the church in 2021 because he classified all the proceeds as benefits from the church. Benefits are not subject to the outside income limits, the Atlanta Journal-Constitutionreported.

Most of the pastoral benefits Warnock received in 2021, $89,000, came in the form of housing payments that the senator's campaign described as a "personal parsonage allowance."

Warnock's Atlanta home is worth just over $1 million, according to Fulton County property records reviewed by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The Senate Ethics Committee signed off on Warnock's pastoral benefits package, he reported in his 2021 financial disclosure.

"Receipt of benefits from Ebenezer Baptist Church approved by Senate Ethics Committee for CY 2021," Warnock reported.

Warnock's financial boon in 2021 came amid allegations from his ex-wife in February that year that the senator had left her "financially strapped" over unpaid child care expenditures despite his "substantial" increase in income from his new position in the Senate.

Warnock faces Republican challenger Herschel Walker in this November's midterm elections. Warnock held a slight polling lead of 47.6% to Walker's 43.2% in July, according to the RealClearPolitics average.

Oh, I am not so sure.

Hypocrisy won't allow them to condemn a Democrat for anything. And unless I am mistaken, 'thumper' only applies to people who are religious and vote Republican.

Now, that there would be a real point IF the article was about Hershel Walker.

It isn't, so your statement is mere deflection.

Some folks are convinced of an illusion that anything negative posted about Democrats is merely deflecting from SOMETHING.

I'll let you know when they decide WHAT we are deflecting FROM!

Assuming that one day THEY figure it out.

Is Warnock the lesser of two evils or simply the only available alternative to electing a moron to represent the people of Georgia in the US Senate?

Well, Georgia DOES have TWO Democrats as Senators, so I think we see what was elected.

I assume you would vote for Warnock on the theory that his opponent is a moron. Or do you want more morons in the senate?

It's very simple John. A radical leftist does more damage than a moron.

Picture Biden without all the radical policies. He wouldn't be that bad at all.

if elected, walker will perfectly represent the trump contingent of the GOP, both in and out of the senate chambers.

Since Hallux seems incapable of clarifying a simple statement, perhaps you can? Somehow I doubt it.....

Good. Just checking that the brotherhood and sisterhood of faith is being genuine as the Lord loves us to be. :) Hypocrisy should not be mentioned amongst the faithful ones who carry the mantle of truth near to their breasts.
