Georgia Democrat Sen. Raphael Warnock is proving to be quite the hypocrite.
Warnock once accused his predecessor of using her seat to increase her own wealth.
Now the shoe is firmly on the other foot..
Warnock saw his income DOUBLE in his first year in the Senate.

Though he only has an estimated annual senate salary of $174,000, he made roughly $541,965 last year.
This is compared to the $221,602 he made the prior year before becoming senator.
The timing is interesting, as the National Republican Senatorial Committee recently accused Warnock of violating campaign finance laws by defending himself in a 2019 lawsuit with political donations.

Here’s the latest on Warnock’s skyrocketing income from the Washington Examiner:
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 Beacon reported.

Let us not forget..
In 2020, Warnock took aim at his opponent, former Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler, accusing her of using the seat to increase her wealth.
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."

Democrats don’t hold themselves to any of the standards they set for others, so this shouldn’t really be a surprise to anybody.

Our friends at Breitbart have more details on the hypocrisy of Raphael Warnock:
Warnock’s income spike as a senator comes after he slammed former Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler of holding the seat to increase her wealth. Loeffler was already one of the most wealthy members of Congress before she ran for office.
“I’m ok with the fact that she wants to make money,” Warnock had said of Loeffler. “I just think you shouldn’t use the people’s seat to yourself. You should use the people’s seat to represent the people.”

Democrat Raphael Warnock used the U.S. Senate to enrich himself, despite previously criticizing others for using public office for private benefit.
