Over the weekend, the Associated Press released a bombshell report that found U.S. Senate candidate Herschel Walker lied about his role while making a fortune serving as a spokesperson for a private hospital chain’s for-profit program that preyed on veterans and service members.
Walker, who for months has lied about being the founder of the Patriot Support Program, continued to lie about his work with veterans even after the AP story broke:
“He told reporters that he did start Ascend Health’s Freedom Care program in 2007.
But government filings show Freedom Care was developed by the company in 2006, a year before Walker claimed to have created it. Meanwhile, an archived company website lists Walker as a spokesman. And a U.S. military news release about the program says Walker didn’t join until 2008 — two years after it was developed.”
