Herschel Walker's exes celebrate his Georgia loss and say they feel vindicated, report says
- Ex-girlfriends of Herschel Walker celebrated his loss in the Georgia runoff election, per the Daily Beast.
- Some had previously accused him of abuse or of paying for abortions despite his pro-life stance.
Women who previously dated Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker celebrated his loss in the state's runoff election on Tuesday, saying they feel vindicated after some of them had publicly accused him of abuse.
Five women who were once involved with Walker spoke to The Daily Beast after his loss, saying they felt Georgia had made the right choice.
One woman, who had accused Walker of paying for her abortion and shared evidence including a check signed by Walker, told the Daily Beast that "Georgia made their choice today. Herschel will not be their voice. Your votes matter ... When we as a country demand more of our leaders, we will be heard!"
Cheryl Parsa, another ex-girlfriend of Walker who told the Beast earlier this month that Walker attacked her in 2005, said that she hopes "this encourages women everywhere—to feel heard, to come forward, and to stand in their truth and power."
She told the Beast after Walker's loss: "I am extremely proud of the outcome of this runoff. The great people of Georgia deserve better representation in the Senate than Herschel Walker, and today they have chosen better."
Another woman, who said she had an affair with Walker between 1996 and 1998, told the outlet that she was happy with the result.
"Finally, this violent liar, cheater, adulterer, abuser and deranged, manipulative idiot has been defeated. As a victim of this disgusting liar, I finally feel relieved, vindicated, and not alone," she said.
Other women who claim to have previously had romantic relations with Walker also spoke to the outlet.
One, who was involved with him in 2006, said: "Having Herschel Walker lose this very important Senate race tonight not only vindicates that democracy has won but the women that he betrayed, have won.
"The truth has won and I hope Herschel finds a way to start telling the truth. However, I highly doubt he knows what the truth is anymore."
