She Had an Abortion With Herschel Walker. She Also Had a Child With Him.

Source: Daily Beast

After a woman revealed that Republican senatorial candidate Herschel Walker had urged her to have an abortion, Walker adamantly denied the story and claimed he had no idea who this woman could be.

But there’s a good reason the woman finds that defense highly doubtful: She’s the mother of one of his children.

When the woman first told The Daily Beast her story, we agreed not to reveal certain details about her identity over her concerns for safety and privacy. But then Walker categorically denied the story and said he didn’t know who was making this allegation.

On Wednesday morning, Fox News host Brian Kilmeade asked Walker whether he had figured out the woman’s identity, based on details in the original report.

The woman who had an abortion paid for by Walker,

is also the mother of one of his children??

(I just caught the tail-end of something on MSNBC, while I was posting about something else, right before their commercial break)...

Did I get that right?

Wellllll, if she was the mother of one of his children, I can see how he might have difficulty remembering her...

(Actually, I am willing to believe that he has no memory of the abortion incident-- what with his level of brain damage, and all...)

Edit: YES, I heard that correctly!

Yahoo news reposted more of the text here:


Warnock, a first-term Democrat and pastor of Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church, leads Walker by 50% to 38%, according to a poll of 1,076 likely voters taken from Sept. 30 though Oct. 4 by Survey USA for an Atlanta-based television outlet. Previous polls showed the race to be much closer or even statistically tied.

Almost all of the polling was completed before the evening of Oct. 3, when the Daily Beast reported that Walker had paid for a former girlfriend’s abortion 13 years ago. Walker, who supports a national ban on abortion, has called the Daily Beast report untrue.

A former football star and longtime Donald Trump acolyte, Walker has also in recent days been publicly criticized and called a liar on social media by his 23-year-old son, Christian.

Walker’s support is especially weak among women, according to the poll. Although male voters were evenly split on the two candidates, women favored Warnock by a margin of 29 points. The poll, conducted for WXIA TV’s “11 Alive” news, has a margin of error of 3.7 percentage points.
