  • Republican Herschel Walker reportedly lied to his own campaign staff about his private children.

  • The Walker staff are complaining to their boss, The Daily Beast reported.

  • Former soccer stars are trapped in one of the hottest Senate races of the year.

Georgia Republican Senator Herschel Walker’s campaign staff is reportedly fed up with his repetitive lies about a former professional soccer player and his children.

The Daily Beast reported on Thursday Walker lied to his campaign staff for months about his father’s secret children, while at the same time continuing a long-standing crusader against his absent father. June 15 The beast broke the news Rumors about Walker are true, saying he had at least one private child. Until that time, Walker publicly admitted only one child, his adult son Christian.

Walker’s own campaign expected him to lie about his children, according to Beast’s report on Thursday, and conducted his own investigation before the news was reported.

“He’s lying, so I don’t know what’s true,” a campaign adviser told The Daily Beast.

Walker’s campaign manager, Scott Paradise, originally attacked The Daily Beast for reporting on Walker’s private child.

“It’s offensive and ridiculous to suggest that Herschel is” hiding “the child because he didn’t use him in his political campaign,” Paradise said in a statement last month.

Personally, according to a new report, Walker assured that Paradise had only two children. But June 16-the day after Beast’s original story- Reported publications Walker had two more children. Walker publicly acknowledged that he had four children, including his daughter, who became his father while working as a star athlete at the University of Georgia.

The Walker campaign exploded the Daily Beast’s coverage as “pure gossip from anonymous sources.”

“This is pure gossip from anonymous sources from left-wing publications engrossed in Herschel and his family,” Paradise said in a statement. “This team is 100% committed to Herschel being elected to the Senate. Unlike Raphael Warnock, who voted 96% with Joe Biden, Herschel Walker is a Georgian rather than a swamp in Washington, DC. I will represent you. “

Children aren’t the only ones to bite Walker’s staff. According to The Daily Beast, Walker’s aides are confused by candidates who don’t listen to them. They ridicule his intellect and fear his “mood and instability.”

Walker is open about diagnosing dissociative identity disorder. He says he once tended to fall into violent impulses. Cindy Grossman, Walker’s ex-wife, Claim it He once pointed a gun at her head and threatened to kill her.

Senator Raphael Warnock, who Walker is running for, is one of the most vulnerable Democrats in the Chamber of Commerce. Some Senate Republicans are hesitant to accept a soccer star candidacy. But before Walker won the Republican primary, Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell and many other established figures lined up behind him.
