A new scandal has erupted over Georgia Democratic candidate Raphael Warnock, who ran over his ex-wife’s foot after a family dispute.
An Atlanta police report details that the incident occurred in March 2020 when Ouleye Ndoye told authorities that her ex-husband deliberately ran over her foot. Ndoye told the officer that Raphael Warnock is “a great actor” and “is putting on a really good show”.
An exclusive Fox News video shows police bodycam footage where the Democratic candidate’s ex-wife claims that “the only thing he cares about is his reputation” because of his Senate race.
“I’ve tried to keep the way he acts a secret for a long time, and today he crossed the line. So that’s what’s happening here. And he’s a great actor. He’s great at putting on a really good show,” she told police in tears.
The video was aired exactly two weeks before the January 5 runoff election in Georgia, in which Warnock is challenging incumbent Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler.
Although this is a new scandal involving Warnock, the candidate was not charged and in the report police said that medical officials found no visible signs of injury to Ndoye’s foot.
Reactions came fast. Republican candidate Kelly Loeffler, in a statement to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, said the images were “deeply disturbing.” While Warnock spokesman Michael Brewer called it a “desperate and shameful” attempt by Loeffler to discredit his rival in the race for a Senate seat.
It is not the first scandal involving the Democratic candidate. The reverend’s sermons, which have also stirred up controversy for taking a position that has been described as “anti-Semitic and radical.”
Raphael Warnock, anti-semite?
“I stand with Israel,” proclaimed Raphael Warnock in an opinion piece published on November 9th, claiming that his views are being distorted “for political gain.”
“Claims that I believe Israel is an apartheid state are patently false, I do not,” Warnock wrote.
“I am firmly opposed to the BDS movement and its anti-Semitic underpinnings.” He concluded that “you can count on me to support the Jewish community and Israel in the United States Senate.”
However, an investigation by the Investigative Project on Terrorism into the Democratic candidate’s background revealed new, unreported allegations against Israel.
Journalists Steven Emerson and David Swindle revealed Warnock’s extreme positions in a letter he signed with other pastors published by the National Council of Churches in March 2019 condemning Israel.
In the letter, the Democrat compared Israel to “oppressive regimes.” He also compared the security fence of the West Bank of Israel to the “Berlin Wall.”
Although Raphael Warnock can assure that today he “stands with Israel,” the doubt remains with Georgia voters. Emerson and Swindle wonder, “Can you really trust that he will do so tomorrow when, as recently as last year, he felt comfortable signing his name with the claim that Israel was comparable to multiple racist and totalitarian states?”
Democrats are pinning their hopes on Georgia to define the role they will play in the Senate. The race for that state is a chance for the Republicans to curb and control the initiatives of the radical left.
In fact, if the Democrats succeed in winning Georgia’s Senate seats, regulations such as gun control could become a reality, especially if Kamala Harris were to break a tie in Parliament.
Republicans have controlled the Senate for the past two cycles, limiting Barack Obama’s agenda and pushing Donald Trump’s. On these elections will depend then the degrees of freedom of the next president of the United States to carry out his agenda.
