HERSCHEL Walker’s run for the Senate was fraught with scandal as the Conservative faces accusations of hypocrisy about his Christian values.
The former NFL star, who is currently running for senatorship in Georgia, was recently accused of having secret children from extramarital affairs and paying for an abortion.
His son Christian Walker, a popular conservative TikToker, slapped the 60-year-old football legend on Monday after a report from The Daily Beast alleging the pro-life contestant paid for a girlfriend’s abortion in 2009.
An unidentified woman told the outlet that Walker reimbursed her for the $575 she spent on the abortion and even sent her a “health card” that she allegedly shared with the outlet.
Walker has denied the allegations and said he would sue the publication.
Following the report, Christian, 22, wrote on Twitter: “I know my mother and I would really appreciate it if my father Herschel Walker would stop lying and making fun of us.
“You’re not a ‘family man’ when you left us to shag some women, threatened to kill us and made us change clothes 6 times in 6 months before your violence.
“I don’t care about someone who has a bad past and takes responsibility. But how dare you lie and pretend to be a ‘moral, Christian, upright man’? You have lived a life in which you have DESTROYED other people’s lives. How dare you?”
Christian’s mother is Walker’s ex-wife, Cindy DeAngelis Grossman. The two divorced in 2002.
Walker is currently married to Julie Blanchard. Walker and Blanchard were reportedly dating for over a decade before tying the knot in May 2021.
Christian continued his attack on his father on Tuesday.
He wrote: “Every member of Herschel Walker’s family asked him not to run for office because we all knew (a bit of) his past. Every single one.
“He decided to give us the middle finger and air out all his dirty laundry in public while lying about it at the same time. I’m done.”
The Daily Beast had also previously reported that Walker, who has spoken out against absentee fathers, secretly fathered a 10-year-old son out of wedlock, a 13-year-old son with another woman and a daughter he had in college.
Confirming the report, Walker said: “I have four children. Three sons and one daughter. They are not “unknown” – they are my children. I support them all and love them all.”
RUN FOR THE SENATE
Walker was elected Republican candidate for Georgia in the 2022 primary, opposing US Senator Raphael Warnock.
He has accused his Democratic opponent of pushing what he calls the “Biden-Warnock agenda,” but has not specified what he intends to do differently.
Walker has said he supports agriculture, veterans, law enforcement, cultural conservatism and mental health advocacy, but when asked about his stance on some issues, his responses were evasive.
He was endorsed by former President Donald Trump in March 2021, who said in a statement: “[Walker] would be unstoppable, just like he was when he played for the Georgia Bulldogs and in the NFL. He’s also a GREAT person. Run Herschel, run!”
Walker blew away the competition in the Senate primary, walking away with 68.2 percent of the Republican vote.
Candidate Gary Black came in second behind Walker with just 13.4 percent of the vote.
