Herschel Walker came up with a new policy proposal just days before his runoff election against Raphael Warnock. Walker was at a campaign event and said, “they [are] out there putting men in women’s sports. And I’m like wait a minute. This is how you can solve this problem. Get rid of them 87,000 IRS agents that’s going to go after all of us and put one of those IRS agents in the schools to take care of our kids.” This is the perfect blending of two nonsensical issues the right has been focused on lately. When it comes to the 87,000 IRS agents, most of them will just be replacing workers who are leaving. They’re also not being instructed to go after “all of us” but instead specifically to target wealthy earners who are cheating on their taxes. Herschel also makes this a story about trans women in women’s sports, which has been at the center of the culture war in recent years. This man is not qualified to be a US senator and hopefully, Georgia voters make that clear in today’s election.
