Herschel Walker, who is a former football running back and the current Republican nominee for the Georgia senate, has lashed out at a report that said he paid for his girlfriend to have an abortion.
Not long after the article was published by The Daily Beast, Walker appeared on Fox News for an interview with Sean Hannity.
Walker said during the interview that he had no idea who the women in question was and that the article was “A flat out lie.”
Walker explicitly said: “I never asked anyone to get an abortion. I never paid for an abortion and it’s a lie.”
Walker added that the article “energized” him even more to “fight and win this seat for the great people of Georgia.”
Walker told Sean Hannity that: “I send money to so many people… I believe in being generous.”
Walker’s lawyer Robert Ingram was quoted by The Daily Beast to have said: “All you want to do is run with stories to target black conservatives. You focus on black conservatives.”
The Daily Beast said that the woman provided a receipt from the abortion clinic along with a get-well card that had been sent to her by Walker.
This caused quite a stir, considering Walker has consistently spoken of his opposition to abortion. Walker recently said that he would be on board for Senator Lindsey Graham’s proposal that would prohibit the procedure after 15 weeks of pregnancy, with certain exceptions.
