Warnock’s No Saint!
Democrat Raphael Warnock has been resorting to a lot of muckraking and mud slinging in his bid for reelection to the U.S. Senate. He has attacked the character of his Republican challenger Herschel Walker in a smear campaign intended to detract from the real issues that Americans face every day.
Since President Biden has been in office, he and the Democrats have spent $3.9 TRILLION to ramp up the economy. Inflation has ballooned and middle-class Americans are feeling the squeeze. Wages are not keeping pace with the cost of living, and you can forget about buying a house right now. Can you even afford gas to go to work?
By the way, who is going to pay for all of the Democrats’ rampant spending? You guessed it, the American taxpayer and his or her descendants — for a long, long time. The question is, are we better off under the Biden administration? The answer is painfully obvious. No!
Democrats would have us believe that the Economic Recovery Act has curbed inflation, but in fact it has energized inflation! Warnock is a part of all this smoke and mirrors spending act, and the scary thing is he wants to continue to be a part of the nation’s downhill slide.
Attacks on Herschel Walker
In his attempt to skirt the real issues, Warnock is bringing up Herschel Walker’s mental health and domestic and workplace violence. Herschel Walker acknowledges his past struggles; he has not tried to hide them. His response to those attacks was humble and sincere. He said that God saved Herschel Walker, and there is no higher authority to whom we all answer than He is.
Herschel Walker and his ex-wife have spoken together publicly about their experience with mental illness, and Walker considers them to be 'best friends' today. He even wrote a book in 2008 about his dissociative identity disorder and his treatment. He has since been an advocate for mental health awareness and says he will continue to push to expand mental health resources across health care, law enforcement, and the military.
As a minister, Warnock should also be familiar with this passage from the Bible: “Let he who is without sin among you be the first to cast a stone.” ( John 8:7).
But if we want to talk about character, Warnock has plenty of explaining to do himself. Raphael Warnock’s Wife Abuse and Custody Scandals In April 2022, the Republican National Committee put pressure on Act-Blue (an American nonprofit technology organization established in June 2004 that enables left-leaning nonprofits, Democratic candidates, and progressive groups to raise money from individual donors on the Internet – to 'empower small-dollar donors') to follow its precedent of kicking out Democrats accused of misconduct toward women or minors and to boot Warnock from its fundraising platform after Warnock’s ex-wife, Ouleye Ndoye, accused Warnock of running over her foot with his car during a disagreement. She also accused him of violating their custody agreement by refusing to pay child care expenses and leaving her 'financially strapped' by skipping out on his visitation days. In addition, she claimed Warnock has refused to return personal items that were awarded to her in their divorce agreement. Warnock denied the claims.
Ndoye stated, 'I've tried to keep the way that he acts under wraps for a long time, and today he crossed the line,' she told police. 'So that is what is going on here. And he's a great actor. He is phenomenal at putting on a really good show.' Raphael Warnock and Camp Child Abuse Warnock also faces allegations of child abuse occurring at a church camp overseen by him. He was arrested in 2002 over accusations of obstructing a child abuse investigation at a Camp Farthest Out in Carroll County, Maryland. Breitbart News reported that Warnock and another minister interrupted a police interview of a camp counselor in 2002 and tried to prevent one camper from directing police to other potential witnesses. Warnock’s campaign spokesperson claimed that Warnock was simply “protecting the rights of young people to make sure they had a lawyer or a parent when being questioned.”
Records from the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene indicated that campers were routinely left unsupervised; staffers were not subject to the required criminal background check; and at least five cases of child abuse or neglect were brought against the camp’s director, who was ultimately forced to resign.
Campaign Funds Misuse
Warnock has also been hit with allegations that he misused campaign funds to pay legal services to defend himself against a federal lawsuit stemming from his time as a pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church. According to the Federal Election Commission, continued from page
campaign money can only be used on “litigation expenses where the candidate/ officeholder was the defendant and the litigation arose directly from campaign activity or the candidate’s status as a candidate.” In other words, the campaign funds could only be used to pay lawyers when Warnock was in the political arena, not when he was simply a citizen.
“If Warnock is using campaign money to pay for a lawsuit that predates his running for office, then by definition it existed irrespective of his candidacy and would be impermissible to use campaign funds on,” Republican attorney Charlie Spies contended to Politico, later adding: “I don’t think his donors are giving for him to fund personal lawsuits.”
Warnock is still responsible for his actions and his past needs to be brought to light rather than swept beneath the rug.
