Herschel Walker Claimed He Wanted To Kill A Man When He Was An 'FBI Agent'

Republican Georgia Senate nominee Herschel Walker had more of his fraudulent claims from 2019 about being in law enforcement uncovered by the Republican Accountability Project.

Talking to some sort of gathering, Walker told a story about how he almost killed a man.

I should say he wanted to murder a man.

Walker said, "I worked for law enforcement you didn't know that either, did you?"

"I spent time in Quantico, at the FBI training school y'all didn't know I was an agent."

(He wasn't)

Walker said, "I've been in law enforcement before so I grab my gun I say, 'I will kill him.' Herschel Walker won the Heisman Trophy, I going to kill him."

Walker then recounted a conversation he had in his head.

Then he turned the story into a religious parable.

"Lord, I'm about to do something stupid," he said.

Murdering somebody is evil, not stupid.

Walker then claimed that as he was walking up to a truck to murder some person, he saw a bumper sticker that had the word Jesus on it.

"And that's what calmed me down."

Walker told a group of people he was going to murder somebody but at the last second stopped because of a bumper sticker.

Walker is a liar and an embarrassment to any branch of law enforcement. And bragging that you didn't murder a person because you received a sign from the Lord is not a wondrous story of faith. It's sick.

Herschel Walker's obsession with law enforcement has been well documented. Since his run at the U.S. Senate, the Atlanta Journal Constitutional investigated many of his claims and concluded there was no evidence of him being an actual agent of any branch of law enforcement.

As the Journal found out there is no evidence of any of this.

This is how cynical Republicans are: Because Walker is Black, they are sure he can beat the other 100 percent qualified Black man who currently serves as Georgia's senator. It's sick cynical racism.
