Last week we severely dismissed Lee Zeldin, the Republican gubernatorial contender. Our focus now is on another Republican, Herschel Walker, who is seeking to unseat Raphael Warnock the senator in Georgia.
Despite the distance from our precincts the race there is very important as it was when Warnock won and gave the Democrats a tie and a virtual hold on the chamber as Vice President Harris had the deciding vote.
Thanks to Walker’s son, we don’t have to expend too much time excoriating him, because his son, Christian, has done that for us; and the voters in Georgia, who if they have any reckoning for rectitude and so-called family values, will see his deceptive nature, a stiff-arm and crossover move from the Heisman winner.
It wasn’t that long ago that Christian was praising his father, and nowhere more consequential than at Mar-a-Lago where he introduced him and lavished him with accolades. Christian said he only supported his father at the campaign event last year because he was told that his father was going to “get ahead of his past and hold himself accountable.”
“None of that happened,” his son said.
Over the last couple of days, Christian has released three videos against his father. Most damning is his charge that his father has been less than a father thereby rendering him null and void on family values.
Christian admitted that he had been lying about things, even silent on the abortion allegations. “The abortion part drops yesterday, it’s literally his handwriting in the card…I’m done everything has been a lie,” Christian said.
If he can’t get his son in his corner, how does he expect to round up the votes he needs to defeat his opponent?
Faking and shifty moves on the gridiron may earn you honors but they don’t work in the political realm, and no matter his credentials, our vote remains with the former preacher from Harlem.
