Herschel Walker Makes Transphobic Remarks After Colorado Shooting
A day after the Club Q shooting in Colorado, Georgia run-off candidate Herschel Walker gave a tone-deaf speech in Carrollton.
In his speech, Walker is preaching that men shouldn’t play “women’s sports.”
These are not the first remarks Walkers has made against the trans community. In previous campaigns, he enlisted Riley Gaines, who has openly stated that for her senior year she was “forced to compete against a biological male.”
“Walker has previously campaigned with Gaines — it was at a September rally with her that Walker suggested trans kids may not go to heaven, because ‘Jesus may not recognize [them],’” reported Yahoo! News.
Walker and incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock will face off for the senate seat on Dec. 6 in the Georgia runoff.

The Presbyterian SeniorCare Network received a $4 million state tax credit for their LGBT-senior-friendly housing community in Oakland, Pennsylvania.
“We are very grateful that the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency saw merit in our project and is providing this funding,” Jim Pieffer, the network’s president and CEO, said in a news release. “We still have work to do to reach our funding goal, but this is the major component of the funding that we need.”
Pieffer expects that the project will cost an estimated $26-27 million and with the help from the $4 million in credits should result in $14 million in investment for the project, according to Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
The 52-unit project is hoping to be completed by summer 2023 and open for residents by fall 2023.
