ICYMI: Walker’s Lies Continue to Pile Up

April 6, 2022

GOP Senate candidate Herschel Walker has been getting caught in lie after lie after lie over the past few weeks — and Georgians are reading all about it. 

In case you’re just tuning in:

CNN: GOP Senate candidate Herschel Walker has been overstating his academic achievements for years

  • For years, Herschel Walker has told the same inspiring story: that he graduated in the top 1% of his class at the University of Georgia. He’s told the story, according to a review of his speeches by CNN’s KFile, during motivational speeches over the years and as recently as 2017. The only problem: it’s not true.
  • Walker, who is a candidate in the Republican primary race for US Senate in Georgia, acknowledged in December that he did not graduate from Georgia after the Atlanta-Journal Constitution first reported that the false claim was listed on his campaign website.
  • But a CNN KFile review found that Walker himself has been repeating the claim for years. Walker’s comments in 2017, and others made over the years, show the former football star repeatedly misrepresented his academic credentials.
