In Georgia, another woman has come forward to claim anti-abortion Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker pressured her into having an abortion. The unidentified woman said it happened in the 1990s while they were dating and that Walker drove her to a clinic to have the procedure. On Wednesday, lawyer Gloria Allred spoke to the press about her client’s allegations and played audiotape of the woman.
Jane Doe: “Herschel Walker is a hypocrite, and he is not fit to be a U.S. senator. We don’t need people in the U.S. Senate who profess one thing and do another. Herschel Walker says he is against women having abortions, but he pressured me to have one.”
This comes as Georgians have turned out in record numbers for early voting. Nearly 60% more voters have already cast ballots than at this point in 2018’s midterms. Data also show a higher proportion of Black and older voters.
