Herschel Walker insists debate badge is “legitimate.” Biden Approval Rises – Latest Interim News

Herschel Walker Doubles Down on the Denial He Paid for His Ex-Girlfriend’s Abortion

Herschel Walker, a Georgia Senate nominee, has maintained that a sheriff’s badge he showed on stage Friday is “legitimate” after being ridiculed for claiming to have official law enforcement powers.

Mr Walker made the claim in an NBC News interview in which he again denied paying for an ex-girlfriend’s abortion. He told the interviewer that he saw no reason to contact his accuser, who is also the mother of his child.

Walker’s comments come the day after he skipped a debate with his opponents, freeing incumbent Democratic Raphael Warnock to ridicule an empty podium.

Meanwhile, Mr Walker’s Georgian Majorie Taylor Greene used a debate to condemn Democrats as the party of “child abuse” and claimed her husband “has evidence” of vote fraud in 2020.

And in a controversial CNN interview, right-wing Arizona governor candidate Kari Lake declined to say whether she will respect the legitimate results of the midterm elections.
