Walker denied the Daily Beast article in the strongest possible terms.
In one of his videos on Tuesday morning, Christian Walker said of his father's response, "I was silent, lie, after lie, after lie." He wrote the abortion part in his handwriting, they say they have receipts. He lies about how he got on the social networking site. I'm finished. The thing was done. Everything has been false.
The people for Herschel Walker's campaign didn't respond to questions about Christian Walker's videos.
Herschel Walker was accused of being a terrible father by his son, Christian Walker, on Monday evening.
Christian Walker wants his father to stop lying and making a mockery of his family. When you left us to bang a bunch of women, threatened to kill us, and had us move six times in six months, you were not a family man.
He said that he doesn't care about someone who has a bad past. How dare you lie and act as though you are upright. You have lived a life of doing things other people don't do. Do you dare?
Herschel Walker is the father of Christian Walker, who is no longer married.
The candidate said he loved his son.
Herschel Walker denied the abortion allegations again in an interview with Sean Hannity.
I didn't ask anyone to have an abortion. I lied about paying for an abortion. Walker suggested the reporting was a dishonest attack by his political opponents in a tight race for both parties.
The Daily Beast reported that a woman said Walker paid for an abortion after they conceived. Images of a receipt from the clinic, a sympathy card from Walker and a check written by Walker were posted as corroboration of the woman's account. POLITICO didn't verify the Daily Beast's reporting.
The article was characterized as "slander," "defamatory" and "disgusting, gutter politics" by the Senate candidate. Walker said that he was going to file a lawsuit on Tuesday.
Walker replied that he sends money to a lot of people and that was funny. I would like to bless others. I got into this race because I believe in God.
He also said that he sent out many get-well cards, and that he had not seen the image of the get-well card posted as corroboration. Even though he denied paying for an abortion, he did not deny that the card or check was his.
The candidate, a former University of Georgia football star backed by former President Donald Trump, told reporters in May that there was no exception for the procedure. Many of his Republican colleagues support exceptions for rape, incest or other instances.
The race for a seat in the upper chamber could be crucial in determining whether Democrats maintain their slim majority.
In the past, a conservative candidate has been accused of funding abortions. Despite reports in 2012 that he paid for his ex-wife's abortions and pressured a woman to get an abortion, Rep. Scott DesJarlais has continued to serve in Congress.
