I’ve already told people it’s a lie, and I’m not going to entertain, I’m going to carry on with the lie,” said 60-year-old Walker at a campaign stop Said.” And I also want to tell you that I didn’t kill JFK either. And now, they, Sen. [Raphael] Warnock, but crushed that debateAnd now the Democrats are doing that, doing whatever they can to win this seat.”
The woman, who posed anonymously as “Jane Doe,” with attorney Gloria Allred, alleged that she and Walker, a football star, met in the 1980s and eventually “fell in love.” She said she learned in April 1993 that she had become pregnant and knew the baby was Walker’s because “I was not intimate with anyone else at the time.”

I am a registered independent, and I voted for Donald Trump in both elections,” she said. I do not believe that Herschel is morally fit to be a US Senator. And that’s why I’m speaking.”

Herschel Walker should not represent the Georgians in the US Senate.”
