This just gets more sloppy by the minute….
The Republican candidate for the US Senate’s lover trail playoing out in the national and Georgia media…
Herschel Walker, the Republican nominee for Senate in Georgia, told NBC News that he learned the identity of the woman who claims he reimbursed her for an abortion in 2009 for the first time on Friday.
Walker said in a brief interview with the outlet that Friday was the first time the woman ever mentioned having an abortion to him or his wife, NBC reported shortly after a report from The Daily Beastthat the woman and Walker’s wife, Julie Walker, had engaged in a text conversation on Friday in which the woman made reference to the procedure.
Herschel Walker told NBC that the first he heard of the situation was a reporter asking him if he ever paid for the woman’s abortion.
“I’m not saying she did or didn’t have one,” he said, referring to an abortion. “I’m saying I don’t know anything about that. I don’t know.”
The woman said that Herschel Walker sent her a check for $700 to reimburse her for the procedure and a “get well” card, with The Daily Beast and The New York Times both saying she showed them a copy of the check and card….
The Daily Beast reported that the woman provided photographs supporting her assertion that Herschel Walker has met his son three times, two of them related to child support hearings. The outlet also said the woman shared screenshots of messages Herschel Walker sent to their son.
The outlet reported that Julie Walker has served as the go-between for Herschel Walker and the woman for years.
NBC reported that the texts it obtained show the woman was supportive of Herschel Walker’s candidacy earlier in the race, texting Julie Walker to congratulate him after he won the GOP primary in May. But the texting relationship between Julie Walker and the woman deteriorated after the woman began receiving phone calls from reporters about the reports of Herschel Walker having multiple children with different women, according to NBC.
The Times reported that the woman was “appalled” by Herschel Walker’s position on abortion….
