Herschel Walker Reportedly Lied to His Campaign About His Secret Children

Herschel Walker is experiencing the hard way what it’s like to run for political office.

Over the past few months it has been revealed that the former NFL star running back has lied about his academic record, that’s he has lied about his business record, and he even has a secret son he doesn’t see. It was then revealed a few weeks ago that he has two more secret children.

The Daily Beast reported on Thursday that Walker has been lying to his own campaign about all of these children.

This account of Walker lying to his own campaign about his children comes from a closely connected adviser and was verified by communications that the source turned over to The Daily Beast.
