( – Former GOP Senate candidate Herschel Walker, who lost to Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) in last year’s midterm elections, has now enrolled at the University of Georgia.

A University spokesperson revealed that Walker was once again a student at the college where he had first played college football in the early 1980s.

The former NFL star had falsely claimed during his Senate campaign to hold a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from the University of Georgia, however, he later acknowledged that he had dropped out of the university in his junior year in order to join the professional football league.

This fib was not the only issue to have harmed Walker’s Senate campaign. During the midterm election, two women alleged that the anti-abortion candidate had not only encouraged but also covered the expenses for their abortions during their respective relationships. Walker has repeatedly claimed that this was not true.

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a government watchdog organization, had also called for the Federal Election Commission to look into Walker’s campaign in May over a payment that Walker’s company, HR Talent LLC, had allegedly solicited. The payment would violate federal election law which blocks campaigns from accepting more than $535,000 in donations.

In December, Georgia held a runoff election, where incumbent Senator Warnock defeated his Republican challenger, Walker, by 3 points. This was the final Senate race in the 2022 midterm elections, allowing the Democrats to grow their Senate majority by one seat.
