U.S. Senate candidate Herschel Walker is facing scathing criticism from all sides after a week of “head-scratching” comments about climate policy, hiding from Georgians and blocking press from his own campaign events, a potential DOJ investigation into his financial disclosures, and revelations about his involvement in yet another scam business. With his latest disastrous week, Walker continues to show Georgians he’s not ready to represent them in the U.S. Senate.
Catch up on Walker’s messy week below:
Blocking press, hiding from Georgians: Walker came under heavy scrutiny for blocking access to his “open to everyone” appearance at a public park in Gainesville, Georgia.
Walker widely panned for “head-scratching” comments on climate policy: It’s no wonder Walker tried to keep press out of his “open to everyone” event this weekend – video from the event caught Walker discussing climate policy as “our good air decided to float over to China’s bad air.”
Another day, another scam: Following recent revelations that he profited from a for-profit hospital chain that preyed on veterans, Walker is under fire for his involvement with yet another predatory business: a new CNN report reveals he partnered with “multi-level marketing” scheme that preyed on “the elderly and those with language barriers.”
Calls for DOJ Investigation: Walker’s pattern of deceiving Georgians continues as he comes under scrutiny for again submitting an inaccurate personal financial disclosure, hiding the source of more than $3 million worth of business dealings from Georgia voters:
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s The Jolt:
No exceptions: On top of it all, Walker continues to be called out by local leaders all across the state for his dangerous stance on abortion. Walker supports making abortion illegal with no exceptions, even in cases of rape, incest, or danger to the mother’s life.
WSB-TV: “Herschel Walker would support making abortion illegal not just in Georgia, but across the country.”
