The Hill reports that the Georgia senator has cut jobs from bio in India.
Georgia Republican Senator David Bertue mispronounced the name of Indian Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris during an election rally for President Donald Trump, leading to allegations that he sounded a racist dog whistle.
“Kah-mah-la or Kah-ma-la or Kamala-mala-mala, I do not know either,” he said in the state of Georgia on Friday. Joe Biden, Mountain Announced.
Democrats quickly called for an apology to Berdu for mocking the name of a black and Asian woman, and the first-color woman on a major party national ticket.
Some also noted that Bertou and Harris have served in the Senate for three years, and individuals who have worked together for a long time know each other by name.
The Georgia Democrats quoted Hill as saying that Burdock was using a “deliberate insult and a great racist ploy” and warned that “every Georgian Republican party must respond.”
“Senator David Burdo has been with the Senate Vice Presidential candidate and Senator Kamala Harris since 2017. He knows her name and knows how to say it.”
“His disgusting performance today is nothing more than a pessimistic dog whistle from a lost politician.”
The Bertue campaign senator denied that he had deliberately mocked Harris’ name, instead saying he had spoken incorrectly.
“Senator Berdu simply mispronounced Senator Harris’ name, and he did not mean anything in it,” a Burdui spokesman told The Hill.
Meanwhile, in 2014 The Hillback announced that Ford had worked for an Indian company between the time he ran a dollar general and then decided to run for the Senate.
This period was removed from the biography of his business website shortly before he announced his campaign, which was reported in the October 2014 report.
Between 2007 and 2009, Berdu had a senior advisory role in Gujarat Heavy Chemicals Limited (GHCL), an Indian chemical textile company, which helped the company build retail operations in India, The Hill reported.
“He would seldom bring his work for that company in the campaign company, and his time with GHCL was not previously reported,” it said.
Berdue’s official website autobiography Pertu Partners, which he co-founded with his cousin, former Georgian government Sony Berdue, once mentioned his work with GHCL, according to The Hill’s 2014 report.
His 12-paragraph campaign biography does not mention the time in India and he does not mention anything about it in the campaign trail.
It is unclear how much of Bertou’s time was spent at GHCL in those years, The Hill said in 2014.
In an interview in 2011, Bertue was quoted as saying to Global Atlanta, “I ‘ve spent the best part of India over the last three years in India, helping people there start retail.”
