The Republican primary for U.S. Senate will end in a matter of days, but the drumbeat of stories emerging about Herschel Walker’s pattern of misconduct and lies are unlikely to end anytime soon. Just this week, new reports revealed more election lies, contradictions, and potential ethics violations by the Trump-tapped candidate — explaining why many Republicans all across Georgia are sounding off on his unpreparedness for public office.
Here’s all the latest Walker woes:
Walker refused to acknowledge that Joe Biden won the 2020 election. In an interview with WSB-TV, Walker refused to acknowledge that Joe Biden won the 2020 election, parroting Trump’s talking points that there were “problems,” with the election. These statements are the latest in Walker’s continued promotion of dangerous 2020 election conspiracy theories, despite three Republican-led recounts in Georgia affirming the state’s election was safe and secure.
Walker wants to ban all abortion – no exceptions. The New York Times reported that Walker wants to totally ban all abortions, even in cases of rape, incest or to save the mother’s life.
Walker failed to report more than three quarters of his income. Business Insider revealed that Walker misrepresented his income — by millions of dollars — in federal documents. This comes after a previous GPB News report sounded the alarm about Herschel Walker’s personal financial disclosure, which ethics experts flagged as “missing key information” and containing major “inconsistencies.”
Walker took campaign cash from an ex-judge accused of sexual misconduct. The American Independent reported that Walker took a campaign contribution from an ex-federal judge accused of sexual misconduct by at least 15 women — and it’s not the first time Walker has accepted cash from problematic figures.
