Herschel Walker caught fibbing some more

Back when he was a businessman running a food-distribution company, Herschel Walker… pledged that 15 percent of profits would go to charities, a promise the company said was “part of its corporate charter.” For years, Mr. Walker’s company named four specific charities as beneficiaries of those donations, including the Boy Scouts of America and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

When The New York Times contacted those four charities, one declined to comment and the other three said they had no record or recollection of any gifts from the company in the last decade.

…and no, it’s not in his corporate charter either.

Remind you of anyone?

“Herschel has been supportive verbally. I don’t think he’s given us any money,” said Jim Baugh, the founder of a now-defunct charity called the PE4Life Foundation. As late as 2017, one of Mr. Walker’s companies cited that foundation as a recipient of corporate donations, but Mr. Baugh said his foundation ceased operations in 2014.

For those still keeping score,

[Walker] falsely claimed to have graduated “in the top 1 percent” of his class at the University of Georgia, when in fact he had not graduated at all…He also said he had “worked in law enforcement” when he had not.

And Mr. Walker said in 2020 that his food-distribution company, Renaissance Man Food Services, employed about 800 people. Earlier that year, it had listed just eight employees when it applied for and received a $111,300 loan from a federal program to assist companies through the pandemic.

Then there’s the three kids he had with women not his wife that he didn’t talk about and apparently doesn’t see, while he campaigned for involvement of Black men with their children.

“At this point, it’s clear that pretty much everything Herschel Walker says bears no resemblance to the truth,” Dan Gottlieb, a spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia, said in a written statement.

Aw. He’s just a chip off the old block:

Well he wasn't fibbing when he said "I'm not that smart."

Is he a fibber or is he just a poor schmuck with brain damage who doesn't know what is true and what isn't?

He seems like a guy that has lied so much that he believes the lies are the truth.

This.

I doubt there's anyway to know his perception of what he's lied about without a sit-down interview on the subject(s).

I don't see that happening, or at least getting very far.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

If Walker doesn't turn it in to a shouting match, this should be pretty sad to watch.

I still say isolation booths with only one mic hot at a time, should be de rigueur.
