Walker’s Bad Week: New Reports Detail Pattern of Health Scams, Failed Businesses and Investigation into Potential Conflicts of Interest Heading to Department of Justice

April 29, 2022

U.S. Senate candidate Herschel Walker was once again in the headlines for all the wrong reasons this week. Three new reports added to the candidate’s laundry list of falsehoods, exaggerations, and failed businesses that have been piling up for months.

  • ​​End Citizens United is “asking the Department of Justice to investigate whether Trump-backed Senate candidate Herschel Walker broke federal law by failing to properly file his personal financial disclosures.” Georgia Public Broadcasting reports  that the DOJ was asked to investigate after “campaign finance and government ethics experts who reviewed Walker’s disclosures earlier this month said the lack of required information could prevent voters from understanding potential conflicts of interests if he becomes a U.S. senator.” A previous GPB News report raised “red flags” about potential “conflicts of interests” in Herschel Walker’s personal financial disclosure, which is “missing key information” and contains major “inconsistencies.” 

It’s just the latest in a long pattern of widely-reported falsehoods, exaggerations, and scams from Walker on everything from his businesses to his academic record. The Daily Beast recently released a bombshell report exposing his “previously unexamined, and particularly egregious, false claims” — including proof that Walker “claims to own companies that don’t exist.”
