People say Walker is a massive liar, but in fairness when you’ve had a lot of concussions and you’ve fathered enough children to ignore and pressured enough women to get abortions, can you really expect to keep track of them all?
A woman who has said Herschel Walker, the Republican Senate nominee in Georgia, paid for her abortion in 2009 told The New York Times that he urged her to terminate a second pregnancy two years later. They ended their relationship after she refused.
In a series of interviews, the woman said Mr. Walker had barely been involved in their now 10-year-old son’s life, offering little more than court-ordered child support and occasional gifts.
The woman disclosed the new details about her relationship with Mr. Walker, who has anchored his campaign on an appeal to social conservatives as an unwavering opponent of abortion even in cases of rape and incest, after the former football star publicly denied that he knew her. He called her “some alleged woman” in a radio interview on Thursday.
The Times is withholding the name of the woman, who insisted on anonymity to protect her son.
In the interviews, she described the frustration of watching Republicans rally around Mr. Walker, dismiss her account and bathe him in prayer and praise, calling him a good man.
If draconian bans on abortion were actually about protecting “life” rather than controlling female sexuality, this would make the Republicans rallying around Walker look like immoral clowns! But this…still does, just in a different way.
