Herschel Walker illegally solicited money for his business during his Senate campaign, which is at least a serious campaign finance violation, and at worst, fraud.
Emails obtained by The Daily Beast — and verified by a person with knowledge of the exchange — show that Walker asked Washington to send $535,200 to an unidentified company, HR Talent, LLC.
And the emails show that Washington not only completed Walker’s wire requests, but was under the impression that these were in fact political contributions.
Herschel Walker asked one of his donors for more than half a million dollars and had the donor send the money to his private organization, while the donor was believed to be donating to help his campaign.
According to the report, Herschel Walker is aware of campaign finance limits, so his behavior appears to be accidental. If Walker takes money that a donor trusts to a Senate campaign or super PAC that supports Walker and uses it for his own business, that’s fraud.
By the way, it’s also illegal for Walker to solicit money for a super PAC, so it looks like detectives can choose their own adventure wherever they want to start with Herschel Walker.
It looks like the people of Georgia landed a big shot by not electing Walker.
