If you live in Georgia or care about the integrity of the Senate, you need to thoughtfully consider this report from Axios on China’s intelligence operations. One of the interesting things is this bit about the Chinese spy and her efforts:
The woman at the center of the operation, a Chinese national named Fang Fang or Christine Fang, targeted up-and-coming local politicians in the Bay Area and across the country who had the potential to make it big on the national stage.
Let’s put this in the proper context.
Jon Ossoff rose to fame as an “up-and-coming local politician” who ran in a special election in Georgia. He claimed he had an intelligence clearance and was in the know, having worked for members of Congress. Hollywood money flowed in and he became a media darling. Though Ossoff lost, he had so much money still in his coffers, the media constantly talked about his future.
Then a curious thing happened.
