Georgia Votes 2022

Herschel Walker's campaign rocked by abortion and abuse allegations

October 7, 2022

After the Daily Beast reported that GOP Senate candidate Herschel Walker paid a woman for an abortion and his son accused him on social media of being a liar, Walker said that he loved his son and denied the reporting in the Daily Beast stories. WABE has not independently verified the information. WABE’s Susanna Capelouto, Rahul Bali, and Sam Gringlas talk with Emma Hurt of Axios about the repercussions for other GOP candidates in Georgia. They also discuss efforts by some groups to remove people from county voter roles and give an update on a challenge to Georgia’s 6-week abortion ban in state court.
