At Long Last, Let’s Call This What It Is

Recent revelations regarding Herschel Walker and Mehmet Oz are disturbing, but by no means do mean the contests are won. The GOP does not care about anything but power

Roger Sollenberger’s blockbuster report at The Daily Beast that Georgia senate candidate Herschel Walker paid for a woman’s abortion in 2009 is yet another installment in a long, long dive into Walker’s personal dealings. That beat has produced a treasure trove of controversies and scandals, including a litany of lies and misleading statements, ranging from his involvement with law enforcement, his businesses, and secret children.

Relatively speaking, it should be enough to sink Walker’s campaign. We all should have woken up this morning to news that he has withdrawn from the race and that the GOP has replaced him with Gary Black, the Agriculture Commissioner who competed with Walker for the nomination. That, in due time, would lead to an overwhelming victory for incumbent Senator Raphael Warnock and some necessary soul-searching on the Republican side.
