Former NFL star and GOP Senate hopeful Herschel Walker is getting dragged on the internet over his claims that he was a former FBI agent and a member of law enforcement. It turns out that all these claims are false.
According to Vlad;
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has looked into Walker’s past speeches where he made the claims, including in 2017, when he told a crowd, “I work with the Cobb County Police Department.”
The AJC spoke to the Cobb County Police Department, who revealed they have no record of Walker working on the force. Walker’s campaign responded, stating that Walker was “an honorary deputy.” Former DeKalb County District Attorney J. Tom Morgan criticized walker, stating that the honorary title is “like a junior ranger badge.”
While Walker’s campaign also stated he spent a week at an FBI school in Quantico, this doesn’t make him an FBI agent, as Special Agent training requires a minimum of 20 weeks. In addition to his law enforcement claims, Walker also was found to have falsely claimed to have been his high school valedictorian, as well as a graduate of the University of Georgia.
But there is more.
Walker always likes to speak about how black families are fatherless but he has a whole secret son out there.
For years, former football star turned Republican senatorial candidate Herschel Walker has expressed an enormous pride and love for his adult son, while taking a principled stand against fatherless households and deadbeat dads—specifically in the Black community.
“And I want to apologize to the African-American community, because the fatherless home is a major, major problem,” Walker said in a September 2020 interview, adding that he had been “like a father to some of those kids that had never had fathers.”
The month before, Walker—who co-parented his 22-year-old son, Christian with both his ex-wife and current wife—told right-wing internet personalities Diamond and Silk that if you have “a child with a woman, even if you have to leave that woman… you don’t leave the child.”
What Walker hasn’t publicly acknowledged is that he has a second son, who has apparently been estranged from his biological father since his birth a decade ago.
The son, whose name The Daily Beast is withholding out of privacy concerns, has grown up more than 1,500 miles from Walker’s Texas home. And the mother, whose name we are also withholding for privacy reasons, had to take Walker to court a year after giving birth in order to secure a declaration of paternity and child support.
That person told The Daily Beast that while Walker sends Christmas and birthday presents, he otherwise has not played an active parental role in raising his second son. The child also has not met or spoken with his half-brother, Christian, the person said.
