The devil went down to Georgia and he was looking for a soul to steal, but he wasn’t looking to pay for an abortion while claiming he’s “pro-life,” and then lie about it later.
Former University of Georgia, NFL, and USFL running back Herschel Walker is proof that you can’t let Donald Trump choose your candidates. Thanks to Trump’s endorsement, Republicans may fail to retake the Senate because they’re likely to lose Georgia. I mean, they should lose because they nominated a very uniquely unqualified candidate.
Herschel Walker isn’t just stupid, but he’s also a liar and he’s evil. Granted, evil liars are pretty much all the GOP goes for nowadays but most of them can form coherent sentences.
Walker wants to ban abortion entirely. He doesn’t want any exceptions for rape, incest, or if the mother’s life is in danger. He compares abortion to murder. So, if it’s murder and Walker has principles, then why did he pay for a former girlfriend’s abortion?
Walker says he didn’t, yet a woman who asked not to be identified out of privacy concerns told The Daily Beast that after she and Walker conceived a child while they were dating in 2009, he urged her to get an abortion. The woman said she had the procedure and Walker reimbursed her for it.
From The Daily Beast: She supported these claims with a $575 receipt from the abortion clinic, a “get well” card from Walker, and a bank deposit receipt that included an image of a signed $700 personal check from Walker.
The woman said there was a $125 difference because she “ball-parked” the cost of an abortion after Googling the procedure and added on expenses such as travel and recovery costs.
Additionally, The Daily Beast independently corroborated details of the woman’s claims with a close friend she told at the time and who, according to the woman and the friend, took care of her in the days after the procedure.
The woman said Walker, who was not married at the time, told her it would be more convenient to terminate the pregnancy, saying it was “not the right time” for him to have a child. It was a feeling she shared, but what she didn’t know was that Walker had an out-of-wedlock child with another woman earlier that same year.
Asked if Walker ever expressed regret for the decision, the woman said Walker never had. Asked why she came forward, the woman pointed to Walker’s hardline anti-abortion position.
“I just can’t with the hypocrisy anymore,” she said. “We all deserve better.”
Walker says he never asked or told anyone to get an abortion and that he never paid for one. But this is the same guy who can’t remember how many kids he has, so how are we to believe him when he says he can’t remember how many abortions he never paid for?
Republicans are lying hypocrites. And if you don’t want to take my word for it, then take it from Christian Walker, Herschel Walker’s son. Christian is one of his kids that Herschel does remember.
Christian has been making videos attacking his father and his campaign.
Christian spills the dirt on his dad in one video, saying, “Family values, people? He has four kids, four different women, wasn’t in the house raising one of them. He was out having sex with other women. Do you care about family values?” After the abortion story dropped, Christian tweeted a new video where he says, “I was silent, lie, after lie, after lie. The abortion part drops yesterday, it’s literally his handwriting in the card, they say they have receipts, whatever. He gets on Twitter, he lies about it. OK, I’m done. Done. Everything has been a lie.”
Christian also tweeted, “I know my mom and I would really appreciate if my father Herschel Walker stopped lying and making a mockery of us. You’re not a ‘family man’ when you left us to bang a bunch of women, threatened to kill us, and had us move over 6 times in 6 months running from your violence.”
And in another tweet, “I don’t care about someone who has a bad past and takes accountability. But how DARE YOU LIE and act as though you’re some ‘moral, Christian, upright man.’ You’ve lived a life of DESTROYING other peoples lives. How dare you.”
Christian, who is a Republican social media “influencer,” is the 23-year-old son of Walker and Cindy DeAngelis Grossman, who are no longer married. Grossman has accused Walker of pointing a gun at her head. She described his abuse in an ad by the Republican Accountability Project PAC, saying, “His eyes would become very evil … The guns and knives. I got into a few choking things with him. The first time he held the gun to my head, he held the gun to my temple and said he was gonna blow my brains out.”
In 2005, four years after their divorce, Grossman went to court to get a protective order against Herschel Walker because he was threatening to murder her and her boyfriend.
None of this will matter to Republican voters, so let’s hope Georgia Independents refuse to vote for this mentally unstable evil abusive lying hypocrite.
This information about how violent, abusive, and hypocritical Walker is shouldn’t be necessary to defeat him, because he’s a horrible candidate. He’s not qualified for the job. But it is needed because this race is in Georgia.
Please, Georgia…we already have one lunatic from your state in Congress. Please don’t send another.
