Herschel Walker denies report that he paid for girlfriend's abortion

Source: Washington Post

His denial came after the Daily Beast published a detailed account from an unnamed former girlfriend who said Walker encouraged her to have an abortion after she became pregnant while they were dating

By Annie Linskey and Cleve R. Wootson Jr.

Herschel Walker, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Georgia, on Monday denied a claim that he paid for a girlfriend’s abortion in 2009, saying in a televised interview on Fox News Channel that the account published in the Daily Beast is a “flat-out lie.”

Walker’s denial came after the Daily Beast published a detailed description from an unnamed former girlfriend who said that Walker encouraged her to have an abortion after she became pregnant while they were dating, wrote her a $700 check to pay for the procedure and then sent her a subsequent “get well” card.

When asked by Fox News’s Sean Hannity about the reported $700 check, Walker, who has voiced opposition to abortion rights, said he frequently gives money to others. “I send money to a lot of people,” Walker said. “I believe in being generous.”

14. They really love them ignorant

They made a mistake with TFG, he was pig ignorant but he still wanted to run things, well, sort of. If he'd just let the real billionaires tell him what to do, he'd be enjoying a second term.

5. About 10% of the anti choice movement is actually against abortion

For most of them, it's not about an unborn child at all, it's about controlling women and punishing them for what they view as amoral behavior (sex). For others, they're anti choice except when it comes to their own lives and their families. And for the bulk of Republican politicians, it's just a wedge issue they take advantage of.

I went to Catholic School for 12 years, the "pro life" movement was huge at my school. I knew people in high school who had abortions and were out protesting at the clinics soon after.

Walker couldn't care less about this issue morally, he's just taking the position that all GOPers have to take.

10. I heard that on MSNBC this morning

And that a friend of the woman has confirmed this. She looked after her as she recovered.

8. Case closed

He said it’s a lie, so it’s a lie. Jesus followers never lie. Especially the ones that think trump is the new Jesus. Just more people still hunting those god damned witches. They seem to be more elusive than big foot, louche ness monster and the still alive Elvis all combined. Besides, witches know magic and can disappear in a puff of smoke? We may never find them.

13. She has PROOF!

This story should be national news everywhere, not a blip that's quickly forgotten. Add it to his son's recent comments.

I saw a t-shirt the other day, that said--"If liars pants really did catch on fire, the news would be much more interesting."

17. The very model of a modern Major General...in the GQP.

Herschel Walker. First he had one kid, then he suddenly had three more kids that he forgot about. Now we learn he paid for an abortion (with receipts) for one of his dalliances. How many abortions did "pro-life" Herschel pay for and forget about?

18. I suspect that many R office holders have had wives, girlfriends, daughters

mistresses who underwent abortion. With their knowledge and support.

But hypocrisy = Republican
