Sen. Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga., who was accused of violating Senate ethics rules this week by asking for campaign donations in an interview at the Russell Senate Office Building, is facing more backlash with her runoff election weeks away.

Loeffler spent $23 million of her own money on the Senate race before the runoff. Since no candidate received at least 50% of the vote, she will face a runoff election on Jan. 5 against Democrat Rev. Raphael Warnock.

Loeffler doesn’t plan on funding her campaign for the runoff, Politico reports. The need to finance her campaign may have led Loeffler on Wednesday to solicit Fox News viewers for donations.

“We know that hundreds of millions of dark liberal money is pouring into our state. That’s why it’s so important that everyone across the country get involved,” Loeffler said in the interview.

She continued, “They can visit to chip in $5 or $10 bucks, and get involved, volunteer.”

On Thursday, the Democratic Party of Georgia revealed it would be filing a complaint against Loeffler and will request that the Justice Department investigate the incident, HuffPost noted.

Meanwhile, “Lock her up” began trending on Twitter with voters demanding that Loeffler be punished for her alleged ethics violation. The phrase was used in 2016 by Donald Trump and his supporters against Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton.

“@KLoeffler Lock her up. You are morally bankrupt. You are not a political leader we need in our democracy. Just drop out. You are being investigated anyway!” one user wrote.

Another user added, “Lock her up!! ATLANTA — Today, unelected 'political mega-donor' Senator Kelly Loeffler committed a clear ethics rules violation by fundraising in the halls of Congress during an interview on Fox News.” 

One Twitter user also noted Loeffler's past transgressions. 

“Georgia Republican Kelly Loeffler sold millions of dollars in stocks after a Senators-only coronavirus briefing and invested it in work-at-home software while downplaying the threat on social media. Ahem. *clears throat* LOCK HER UP! LOCK HER UP! LOCK HER UP! #CrookedKelly,” the individual wrote.

Loeffler, a former financial executive, was appointed to the Senate in December by Republican Gov. Brian Kemp after Sen. Johnny Isakson retired.
