“HONESTY MATTERS”: 2nd abortion accuser claims Herschel Walker is “not fit” for office
A second woman has now accused Georgia MAGA Senate candidate Herschel Walker of paying for her abortion after he impregnated her during a consensual relationship.
Identified only as “Jane Doe” in the exclusive ABC News interview, Walker’s accuser said she decided to come forward after another woman made similar claims that Walker had also pressured her into having an abortion.
Walker has denied the allegations, which were first made at a press conference last week, dismissing the claims as “foolishness” while adding “this is all a lie, and I will not entertain any of it.”
Speaking with ABC News’ “Nightline” co-anchor Juju Chang, the woman said she became pregnant in 1993 amid a yearslong affair with Walker, saying they saw each other “several times a week, usually in the mornings” and that they were in love.

“[Walker] was very clear that he did not want me to have the child. And he said that because of his wife’s family and powerful people around him that I would not be safe and that the child would not be safe,” the woman said.
“I felt threatened and I thought I had no choice,” said the woman, who has come forward on camera for the first time since making her allegations public at a press conference last week with her attorney, Gloria Allred.

In her interview with Chang, Jane Doe recalled initially going to a clinic to have an abortion before abruptly leaving after having a change of heart.
“I guess it is part of the procedure then that they did an ultrasound. And I saw the ultrasound and I couldn’t go through with it. So I left the clinic and went back home,” she said with emotion in her voice.
According to the woman, Walker then told her he would drive her to the clinic to have the procedure.
Herschel Walker cheated on his wife w this woman for 6 yrs, pressured her into getting an abortion, and keeps lying about it.

Jane Doe said Walker gave her cash to pay for the abortion.
“He came to my house and picked me up and drove me to the clinic,” the woman recalled. “I went in alone and he waited in the car while I went in and had the procedure. And then I came out and he drove me to the drugstore, and then he took me home.”
She said she has no receipt for the payment or record of the procedure.

Walker has denied all allegations, just as he’s lied about all of the other things he’s done in his life. My favorite is when he tells people he graduated as valedictorian from our mutual alma mater, the University of Georgia when he didn’t graduate at all.
During debate w/ Stacey Abrams, Brian Kemp refuses to say if he would sign even more abortion restrictions into law. Abrams then says Kemp "does not have a plan for the lives of the women who are being forced to carry pregnancies to term" and adds that he defended Herschel Walker pic.twitter.com/hNCau6MNls

The GOP’s hypocritical reaction to Walker’s history of abuse, lying, and denying his own children was bad enough, but that they’re deliberately looking the other way on one of their biggest issues is a glaringly obvious tell that they literally don’t care whose butt is in that seat as long as it belongs to a registered Republican instead of Raphael Warnock.

MAGA Trumpublicans will keep looking the other way for at least the next week, while the Georgia Secretary of State is investigating a pro-Herschel Walker group for alleged election law violations.
Shocking from the party that’s already planning to challenge all the results they don’t like. Also, a quick reminder: it doesn’t matter if the loser doesn’t like losing, they still lost.
Jane Doe told JuJu Chang that, following Walker’s denials, she now thinks he isn’t fit to be a U.S. senator. Asked why, she said, “I think honesty matters.”
It does, and it’s the primary reason that few Republicans are fit to be in office.
