Herschel Walker pulls a fast one on corrupt media, ‘screeching’ reporters fume

Georgia Republican senatorial candidate Herschel Walker has been eating Sen. Raphael Warnock’s lunch for the last week, first trouncing him in a debate and then telling the media to do their jobs in front of apartments owned by Warnock’s church.

“A crowd of ~20 reporters screeched at Herschel Walker this morning when he suggested they do their jobs and talk to the people who have faced eviction notices from the apartment building owned by Raphael Warnock’s church. They’re so close to the building they can almost touch it,” Free Beacon investigative reporter Andrew Kerr tweeted.

The Washington Free Beacon was the first to report on the church evicting elderly tenants onto the street, including veterans, for owing as little as $28.55 in past-due rent.

Walker scolded the reporters for not coming down to even look at the apartment building owned by Ebenezer Baptist Church where the tenants live. He called a press conference in front of it so they could see it for themselves.

As reporters yelled at him, Walker told them that he hoped that they would take the time to speak to the tenants who were present. They seemed far more interested in trying to accuse him of paying for an alleged abortion years ago than doing actual reporting as the Free Beacon has done.

It’s not hard to understand why either. According to the conservative media outlet, the place is a filthy, disgusting hellhole.

“A low-income apartment building owned by Raphael Warnock’s church is plagued by pests, maintenance problems, and filth, according to residents—and at least two people have sued the building this year after the elevator allegedly collapsed on them,” the Free Beacon reported.

Court documents indicate that two men filed separate lawsuits against the building in February and May of 2022, asserting that they were injured after the elevator ceiling collapsed on them in May 2020.

One of the alleged victims claims he “was in an elevator at Columbia at MLK Village Towers as the elevator ceiling abruptly fell down,” knocking him unconscious. His resulting injuries reportedly cost him over $50,000 in medical bills, according to the Free Beacon.

“The collapsed elevator ceiling struck the Plaintiff about the head, neck, and back area,” the lawsuit stated. “The impact of the collapsed elevator ceiling caused the Plaintiff to immediately lose consciousness.”

Residents of the Columbia Tower at MLK Village report that “garbage is left to pile up in the storage rooms for days, creating an ‘overwhelming trash smell,’ common areas aren’t maintained, and the air vents produce a ‘sickening’ amount of dust. Tenants also said the elevators often break down, and handicapped residents have had to call the fire department to carry them to their rooms.”

Pastor Warnock campaigned as a champion of low-income Georgians and people with disabilities. His church also pays him a $7,417-per-month, tax-free housing allowance.

Despite the deplorable conditions at the apartment building that Warnock’s church owns, the media has deliberately sidelined the story for the most part.

In a sane world,  a pastor and candidate connected to a church acting as a slum lord would be big news just before a midterm election… unless, of course, he’s a Democrat.
