Multiple reports have found that Herschel Walker has repeatedly lied about his business background. From Walker claiming “to own companies that don’t exist” to “court records and other public documents contradict[ing] statements Walker has made about the number of people his companies employ, their size and the assets they own” the GOP Senate candidate’s business record has continued to receive intense scrutiny. Not to mention, Walker has made a habit of bashing “state and federal programs to support minority-owned firms” while touting his own businesses’ minority-owned status.
Walker’s lies about his business record make up just a few of the several lies, scandals, and bizarre statements he’s been caught in. In addition to lying about his business record, Walker has also lied about his academic achievements, lied about his involvement in law enforcement, and has been involved in two for-profit programs accused of targeting veterans and service members.
