ABC News reports:
Senate hopeful Herschel Walker said Tuesday that he now knows the identity of the person alleging that he reimbursed her for the cost of an abortion procedure more than a decade ago, but said he has not spoken to the ex-girlfriend since the news broke and accused her of lying.
“I know nothing about an abortion,” Walker told ABC News anchor Linsey Davis. “I knew it was a lie and I said it was a lie — and I just move on … it’s sad that people say October surprise, but you’re destroying families.”
After Walker subsequently called the story a “flat-out lie” and promised to sue The Daily Beast — which he has not yet done — the woman went back to the outlet to say she was the mother of one of Walker’s children.
