Midterm elections roundup: Walker denies another abortion allegation

Another woman claims the Republican Senate nominee in Georgia pressured her to have an abortion.

By , and

Georgia Republican Senate nominee Herschel Walker has denied an allegation from a new woman that the former football star pressured her into having an abortion.

“Anyone who believes I am coming forward because Herschel is running as a Republican candidate — that is simply not the case. I am a registered independent, and I voted for Donald Trump in both elections,” the anonymous woman, who claims she met Walker in the 1980s and became pregnant in 1993, said during a press conference over Zoom. “I do not believe that Herschel is morally fit to be a U.S. senator. And that is the reason why I am speaking up.”

Walker responded during a campaign stop: “I’m done with this foolishness. I’ve already told people this is a lie, and I’m not going to entertain, continue to carry a lie along.” 

It comes weeks after another woman, who is the mother of one of Walker’s children, claimed he paid for her to get an abortion.
