Conservatives Revisit Warnock Scandals Amid Media Attacks On Walker

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Herschel Walker is engaged in a tight race against incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) — and a series of recent media reports about his personal life threatens to derail his campaign with just weeks left until Election Day.

Walker is facing anonymous allegations from a woman who claims to be the mother of one of his children that he paid for her to abort another pregnancy. He has categorically denied the claim.

“I never asked anyone to get an abortion,” he said on Monday. “I never paid for an abortion. And it’s a lie. And I’m going to continue to fight. They want this seat. Right now, they’ve energized me even more.”

Nevertheless, news outlets continue to promote the woman’s assertion even as they overlook scandals and controversies from Warnock’s past. For his part, right-wing journalist Matthew Foldi dedicated a lengthy Twitter thread to a series of damning stories that emerged during the Democrat’s 2020 campaign.

One particularly troubling allegation involves Warnock’s leadership role at a Maryland church camp about two decades ago. He was arrested on charges of obstructing police who were investigating claims of child abuse.

Additionally, his ex-wife accused him of neglecting their child and driving over her foot during an argument.

Former President Donald Trump also weighed in on the apparent double standard, writing on Truth Social that he has “heard many horrible things” about Warnock, “things that nobody should be talking about, so we don’t.”

Although some polls show that Warnock received a boost from the negative press surrounding his rival, the news does not appear to have dampened the enthusiasm of Walker’s supporters.

Walker’s campaign has reportedly brought in roughly $500,000 since the claims surfaced earlier this week as conservative figures and groups — including pro-life organizations — continue to rally around him.

The Susan B. Anthony List issued a statement declaring that Walker “wants to protect unborn children while Raphael Warnock wants to see them die through unlimited abortion.”

National Republican Senatorial Committee head Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) said the attacks against Walker are evidence that Democrats “know they are on the verge of losing the Senate,” asserting that “they have cranked up the smear machine” in an effort to bring down Walker.
