In a series of tweets, Christian Walker, the son of Republican Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker, calls his father out for being “a liar” who “destroys lives”.
“I know my mom and I would really appreciate if my father Herschel Walker stopped lying and making a mockery of us,” conservative activist Christian Walker wrote.
“You’re not a ‘family man’,” Christian Walker continued. “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.”
Christian Walker stated that when his father initially planned to run for Senate, he planned to “take accountability” for past actions. Those actions included allegations of domestic abuse and extramarital affairs.
Christian Walker calls father out for being a liar who destroys lives:
I’ve stayed silent for nearly two years as my whole life has been lied about publicly. I did ONE campaign event, then said I didn’t want involvement.

“I don’t care about someone who has a bad past and takes accountability,” Christian wrote about his father. “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,” he continued. “How dare you?”
Report claims Herschel Walker paid for his girlfriend’s abortion
The damning tweets come at the same time a story from The Daily Beast alleges Herschel Walker paid for his girlfriend’s abortion.
Walker has campaigned on an anti-abortion platform that includes forced birth for victims of rape and incest. Walker even opposes abortion if the life of the mother is at risk.
“But the Republican candidate has supported at least one exception—for himself,” The Daily Beast writes.
The girlfriend, who has asked to remain anonymous, claims that Walker paid her $700 to have the abortion. She provided The Daily Beast with a copy of the check (signed by Herschel Walker), a receipt from the clinic and a “get well” card from the Senate candidate.
The woman asked to remain anonymous, saying she came forward after hearing Walker push a “hard line” abortion stance.
“I just can’t with the hypocrisy anymore,” she told the outlet. “We all deserve better.”
According to The Daily Beast, Walker’s campaign called the allegations “false” and asked for woman’s name. The paper declined.
Walker called the story “a flat-out lie” and said he would sue the paper for defamation. “[The lawsuit] will be filed tomorrow morning,” Walker reportedly said Monday.
As of Tuesday morning, there’s been no indication such a lawsuit has been filed yet.
Herschel Walker is running against incumbent Senator Raphael Warnock. The race is a toss up, with Walker leading in some recent polls.
I LOVE my son no matter what
