If you haven’t heard, the Daily Beast claims it has the receipts on Herschel Walker paying for an abortion in 2009. Walker, for his part, denies it and claims he will file a defamation lawsuit this very day against the reporter. I thought it was a public claim made in the primary. But I was reminded that it was just, at the time, an unsubstantiated rumor. I had been told of the rumor, but the campaign in question could not get anything to substantiate it and chose not to do anything with it. I wasn’t going to run with another campaign’s unsourced rumor. Again, Walker is vehement that it did not happen and flat-out denies it.
I never vote for baby killers .
I’m not voting for Warnock. You assumed that.
I told friends a year ago I wouldn’t vote for Walker. These latest allegations don’t change anything for me. I am done with voting for such low quality candidates. This is even worse than the republicans in the GA Senate race in 2020.
I understand and respect people who vote a straight ticket. I can’t do it myself any longer.
How important or useful is TV advertising for either party? I was listening to a Democratic strategist on NPR ( yes, I know that's cause for anathema) who said at this point GOTV (get out the vote) is the best use of money. I don't see political ads at all because I use the Internet to watch TV. Does the Warnock advantage in spending on TV really matter? I'm well into my senior years, and no-one I know watches traditional network TV with annoying ads.
Congratulations Erick...when was the last time you generated 61 comments?? Seems you hit a nerve. Hahaha!
Oh God who cares? When in the hell did it become ok to put your personal health information out there. Health records are supposed to be sacred and known only to you. Ok, so what, she had an abortion, big deal. He sees how wrong abortion is all these years later.I had an abortion 40 years ago and I have had to live with that forever. Tribal, damn freaks! I am still going to vote for Walker over Warlock. Warlock is a pastor? ok so I am tribal now. Warlock beat his wife and maybe his children. Did Warlock leave his congregation any better? Did he solve homelessness around his church, downtown? Did he let homeless people, nasty and smelly attend services? What does Jesus say about Warlock?
You are supposed to save all medical records. As gruesome as it seems, an abortion is considered a medical procedure. As for the rest, wouldn’t it be nice if we had better choices and people made better choices? Voting is a duty and a privilege but not necessarily a pleasure.
Walker's response to criticism and his ability to stay on message is as bad as Trump's was. It's like all they know how to do is make everything worse.
The thing that I can’t understand for the life of me is that why, in such an important election as this, WHY did the Georgia GOP choose such a flawed candidate? I can’t believe that there was not another dynamic, intelligent, qualified black candidate (let’s face the truth, that’s what the primary strategy was against Warnock) who could have done extremely well, articulated a strong message and not had the issues we are facing now with Walker - true or not. There were two! And I voted for one of them. No amount of support from rabid Bulldog fans will be able to push Walker to victory. I’ll hold my nose and vote for him but it makes me angry that we are in this position.
Who DOES keep a receipt from a decades old abortion? A liar.
Wow.....that just blew my mind!
If Herschel paid for an abortion, it doesn't mean he fathered a child out of wedlock. I once knew a girl who hit up 3-4 guys for abortion money because she was sleeping with them all. So why are the democrats upset? They favor abortion after all to a child's life. IF he did, he should own up and say he made a mistake, IF he did not, sue the f--- Out of the reporter
IMO, Herschel Walker paying for an abortion in 2009 is less frightening than Donald Trump identifying as a Democrat until he ran as a Republican, yet Trump's policies turned out to be great for the country (his narcissism, not so much). Walker was famous, had just had an out-of-wedlock child, and was probably pretty freaked out. I'm sure he thought what happens behind closed doors would stay behind closed doors. I get it, it's hypocritical as hell, but who amongst us HASN'T been at various times in our lives? I personally think one has to live long enough to see that even the darkest hours eventually pass before one learns to consistently adhere to their own standards.
Warnock (and Ossoff, and for that matter Chuck Schumer) are thanking their lucky stars for Donald Trump.
Well, I'm not voting for Warnock. So it comes down to am I voting for Walker. All you can do is let all the facts come out. Look a the local AND national landscape and make a decision. The good news, its still almost a month away before having to do so.
How is it that a Reverend/Pastor is in politics, much less grandstanding about being pro abortion/pro killing unborn babies? Is this world gotten goofy or what?
