Pro-life television and radio host dana loesch said she didn’t care or not anti-abortion Republican Senate candidate Herschel walker paid for his girlfriend’s abortion, saying what she wants is “Senate control”.
The Trump-backed Republican candidate for the Georgia Senate race was accused of paying for the abortion of a former girlfriend in 2009, an apparent contradiction to Walker’s proclaimed pro-life beliefs.
Walker, a former football player, has expressed his opposition to right to abortionequating termination of pregnancy with murder.
But Monday, The daily beast reported that Walker paid his ex-girlfriend a $700 check to pay for an abortion at a time when the two were dating.
The Republican candidate denied the allegations and threatened to sue the newspaper for defamation.
“Does that change anything?” said Loesch, a former spokeswoman for the National Rifle Association (RNA), said, speaking of the apparent scandal surrounding Walker while on air for The first one. “Not a damn thing,” she added.
“How many times have I said four very important words. Those four words: Winning. Is. A. Virtue,” she continued.
“What I am about to say is in no way a contradiction or compromise of any principle. And please bear in mind that I am concerned about one thing, and one thing only at this point. I don’t care that Herschel Walker paid to abort endangered baby eagles. I want control of the Senate,” Loesch said.
“Whether The daily beast‘s story is true, you’re telling me Walker used his money to pay a bitch for an abortion, and Warnock wants to use all our money to pay a bunch of bitches for an abortion,” Loesch said, using a derogatory tone. term for people, especially women, who are perceived as weak or squalid in character.
“I don’t know if he did or not,” the radio host concluded. “I do not care.”
Newsweek contacted Loesch for comment.
In a tweet posted Oct. 4, Loesch said, “I’m not willing to make more babies pay for Walker’s actions, if true, in allowing Warnock to win an abortion on demand.”
In a follow-up tweet addressing her on-air speech, Loesch added that she wants Senate oversight to block legislation funding abortion procedures.
“Damn, I want power,” she wrote. “Unlike some of you, I’m just being honest about it.”
The charge against Walker comes as the halfway are fast approaching in one of the nation’s tightest senatorial races.
According to the latest FiveThirtyEight poll, Walker trails the Democratic incumbent Raphael Warnockwho should have a 54 out of 100 chance of winning the race against 46 out of 100 for Walker.
It remains unclear how these allegations will influence Walker’s campaign, as the voting site said they have “not yet” affected their polls.
