One of Georgia Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker's more vocal supporters suddenly changed his tune on Monday.
The former NFL running back turned politician was the subject of several tweets posted by his son, conservative provocateur Christian Walker.
The younger Walker posted:
"Every family member of Herschel Walker asked him not to run for office, because we all knew (some of) his past."
"Every single one."
"He decided to give us the middle finger and air out all of his dirty laundry in public, while simultaneously lying about it."
"I know my mom and I would really appreciate if my father Herschel Walker stopped lying and making a mockery of us."
"You’re not a 'family man' when you left us to bang a bunch of women, threatened to kill us, and had us move over 6 times in 6 months running from your violence."
Christian Walker completed his attack on his father posting:
"I don’t care about someone who has a bad past and takes accountability."
"But how DARE YOU LIE and act as though you’re some 'moral, Christian, upright man'."
"You’ve lived a life of DESTROYING other peoples lives. How dare you."
This was a marked difference from Walker's previous posts about his father's Senate run.
The abrupt change left people with questions.
Walker's fellow conservatives responded to his post by throwing his prior support of his father in his face.
But Walker claimed his father lied to garner his support.
On Tuesday morning, Christian Walker posted two videos to his Twitter account to share "the full story."
People agreed Herschel Walker was a poor choice for a Senator.
But many were less than sympathetic for Christian Walker given his extensive history of mocking and attacking others online and in real life.
It remains to be seen what effect, if any, Christian Walker's tweets will have on his father's Senate race.
But, if the way Christian's own party and fellow conservatives now seem to be attacking him is any indication, it may not have much of an effect at all.
