Herschel Walker has been noticeably quiet since failing as a politician, but it seems we know why he has not being saying a word.
Walker — who had the backing of former President Donald Trump — has been implicated in an “unprecedented,” “stunning,” and “jaw-dropping” scandal involving crimes such as wire fraud and campaign finance violations.
The Daily Beast dropped a damning report that stated Walker solicited “hundreds of thousands of dollars” from billionaire benefactor Dennis Washington in March of 2022 “for his own personal company—a company that he never disclosed on his financial statements.”
The billionaire donor, who was a friend of Walker’s, thought the money was going to Walker’s senate campaign, per a Daily Beast report.
Correspondent Roger Sollenberger revealed that “emails obtained by The Daily Beast—and verified as authentic by a person with knowledge of the exchanges—show that Walker asked Washington to wire $535,200 directly to that undisclosed company, HR Talent, LLC. And the emails reveal that not only did Washington complete Walker’s wire requests, he was under the impression that these were, in fact, political contributions.”
“In what legal experts say could be the most brazen and egregious campaign finance violation in memory, and possible wire fraud, Herschel Walker solicited & received $535,200 from a donor—to his private company,” Roger Sollenberger reports.
Sollenberger noted that “in the best possible circumstances, legal experts told The Daily Beast, the emails suggest exponential violations of federal fundraising rules; in the worst case, they could be an indication of more serious crimes, such as wire fraud.”
The legendary college football running back attempted to win a U.S. Senate seat last year, but he was not elected in Georgia.
After losing his 2022 senate run, Walker ended his campaign with more than $5 million in funds, NBC reported.
Now, months after his campaign ended, a potential bombshell scandal has been revealed and now we have to wait for him to speak out about it.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
