Tweets from Jimmy Arturo Paiz's Twitter account show that he is against Republican candidate for Senate Herschel Walker. A tweet from November reads, "Listening to Herschel Walker speak is the same as listening to Mushmouth speak. It's so embarrassing to live in a state with people that actually support this garbage-ass person. But let's be real, the GOP loves whitewashed brothers, always have."
Another tweet quotes a Vice News article about the Myanmarese coup d'etat of 2021, where he tweeted: "This is an example of what authoritarian, right-wing, republican, GOP, ideology wishes it could get away with, and in many instances, it has to a lesser degree. Make no mistake, this is the ideology of the right."
Among those who have claimed that Paiz is a right winger are Democrat Party operative Kaivan Shroff, writer Molly Knight, and leftist activist group Occupy Democrats, who tweeted that Georgia is "plagued by right-wing political violence."
Paiz, 46, has been charged with aggravated assault and aggravated battery for the incident that took place at around 5:35 pm Thursday in Savannah, Georgia, and he is being held at the Chatham County Jail.
"According to the preliminary investigation, the teen was campaigning for Raphael Warnock for the upcoming run-off election when the incident occurred," Savannah Police said in a statement. "While at the front door of one of the residences on Hartridge Street, the suspect fired a shot through the closed door, striking the teen."
The teenager suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the leg.
"At this point, there is no indication the shooting was politically motivated," the police added.
Warnock and Walker are in full campaign mode this week, preparing for the Senate run-off election on December 6. Neither candidate received more than 50 percent of the vote during last month's midterm elections.
The latest poll from CNN/SSRS shows Warnock with a four-point lead over Walker. The poll was conducted from Nov. 25-29 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.0 percentage points.
