Washington, D.C. – Today, Senate Majority PAC’s (SMP) affiliated group Georgia Honor is releasing two new ads educating voters about Herschel Walker’s record, as first reported by the Washington Post.
The first spot, titled “Another,” documents Walker’s pattern of violence against women and disturbing conduct, including footage of an ex-girlfriend saying that Walker used the threat of violence to pressure her into having an abortion. It will reach voters statewide beginning Tuesday as part of Georgia Honor’s over $13.5 paid media investment for the runoff cycle.
The second spot, titled “Our Own,” highlights Walker’s support for making abortion illegal with “no exception[s],” even in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother. It will reach voters in the Atlanta market beginning Tuesday.
“Georgians deserve to know the truth about who’s asking for their vote and what that person plans to do with it. The more voters learn about Herschel Walker’s well-documented pattern of violence against women and how he wants to ban abortion nationwide with no exceptions, the clearer it is that he’s simply not ready to represent Georgia in the Senate,” said spokesperson Veronica Yoo.
“Decades of violence against women.
Guns. Razor blades. Choking.
Now, an ex-girlfriend says Herschel Walker used the threat of violence to force her to have an abortion.
[Jane Doe]: ‘He said … I would not be safe and that the child would not be safe.’
[Jane Doe]: ‘It is very menacing. It is very menacing.’
[Jane Doe]: ‘And I felt threatened and I thought I had no choice.’”
“Our Own” Transcript:
“On December 6th, our rights are on the ballot.
Herschel Walker wants a total ban on abortion, nationwide.
[Herschel Walker]: ‘There’s not a national ban on abortion right now, and I think that’s a problem.’
No exceptions for rape, incest or to save a woman’s life.
[Herschel Walker]: ‘There’s no exception in my mind. No exception.’
Raphael Warnock is fighting to protect our right to make our own health care decisions.”
Vote by December 6th.”
