Herschel Walker claimed he did not know the woman who accused him of paying for her abortion, which seems impossible given he also has a child with her.
After a woman revealed that Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker had urged her to have an abortion, Walker flatly denied the story and claimed he had no idea who the woman might be.
But there is a good reason why the woman finds this defense very dubious: she is the mother of one of his children.
The woman, a registered Democrat whose years-long relationship with Walker continued after the abortion, told The Daily Beast that her main concern about her name being revealed was that she was the mother of one of the Walker’s own children and that she wanted to protect her family’s privacy. as best she could while revealing the truth. (Walker has publicly acknowledged the child as his own, and the woman has proven herself to be the child’s mother and provided credible evidence of a long-term relationship with Walker.)
All of those Republicans who lined up to back Walker after the abortion story thinking they could make it go away by moving to a so-called he/she-says narrative have seen their tactics explode in their faces.
Much like his pal Trump, Herschel Walker is a special brand of true toxic junkies. Anyone who dares to believe or defend it is doomed to be infected.
This story is not going away.
Herschel Walker’s victory is vital to Republican hopes of regaining control of the Senate. If Walker loses in Georgia, the Republicans have virtually no chance of regaining a majority in the Senate.
The problem is that Herschel Walker continues to throw gas on his own Senate campaign and set it ablaze.
Herschel Walker keeps lying, and each new lie that turns out to be false costs him votes.
Strange things have happened, but Herschel Walker is not Donald Trump, and it’s not 2016.
It seems increasingly likely that Walker has made himself ineligible in the US Senate race in Georgia.
