On Thursday, U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), speaking on “The Erick Erickson Show,” targeted his opponent, Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff, stating, “We’ve got a China scandal here in my race that could make Biden and other scandals like that pale in comparison.”

Erickson stated, “It’s not surprising, just interesting, to watch the media now trying to circle the wagons around your opponents, particularly in this China situation, where we know he took money from a media company in Hong Kong that had direct ties to the Chinese Communist Party. He wouldn’t disclose it until you called him out on it, then he amended his filing on a Friday, hoping no one would see it. … I didn’t know it was coming from the Chinese Communists. Between Al-Jazeera and the Chinese Communists, he seems to get money from interesting places.”

National Review stated of the media company, PCCW, that 18% of it is owned by China’s state-backed enterprise China Unicom. National Reviewreported in September: “PCCW, the largest telecom agency in Hong Kong, is run by Chairman Richard Li, son of Hong Kong’s richest man, Li Ka-shing. Li also serves as a councilor for the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington, D.C., think tank. But for years, Li has spoken out against Hong Kong independence and the pro-democracy protests that have rocked the island as the Chinese Communist Party has consolidated control.”
