With Georgia set to decide the balance of the US Senate in the coming days, America is getting a pretty close look at the candidates involved in the race.
Of the Democrats vying for a seat in the higher chamber of Congress, Reverend Raphael Warnock has been one of the more controversial figures. The longtime Atlanta native was criticized just weeks ago over his praise for Marxism and his regard for controversial pastor Jeremiah Wright. He was also once affiliated with a church that hosted Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, further tarnishing his record.
The latest stain on Warnock’s record comes to us from his wife, however, who once lamented to police officers that he was “a great actor” as they responded to a domestic dispute.
The comments could be heard on police body camera footage obtained by Tucker Carlson Tonight. They revolved around a domestic dispute between Warnock and his wife in early March.
The incident was first reported on by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution right as Warnock was gearing up to run against GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler in what has become a high stakes runoff election that will determine which party controls the U.S. Senate.
Warnock’s wife’s statement was disheartening, to say the least.
“This man’s running for United States Senate, and all he cares about right now is his reputation,” she tells the officer. “I’ve been very quiet about the way that he is for the sake of my kids and his reputation.”
She adds: “I’ve tried to keep the way that he acts under wraps for a long time, and today he crossed the line. So that is what is going on here. And he’s a great actor. He is phenomenal at putting on a really good show.”
Warnock is currently leading Loeffler in the polls, with the runoff election set to commence on January 5th.
