Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) is up for re-election in Georgia.
Since entering politics, Warnock has branded himself as a fighter for the working class. However, reported issues in Warnock’s personal life could end up derailing the image he wants to project.
Back in 2020, Warnock’s ex-wife, Ouleye Ndoye claimed that he ran over her foot in a vehicle while the pair were having a dispute. Warnock, of course, denied it and went on to become a senator from Georgia.
However, Ndoye is back with new allegations against Warnock and his behavior towards his children, according to Washington Free Beacon.
The Newest Accusations from Warnock’s Ex-Wife
At this time, Ndoye is accusing her ex-husband of child neglect, not covering agreed-upon childcare expenses, and otherwise not appropriately co-parenting with her.
She’s even stated that Warnock fails to inform her when he’s going out of town and simply has friends pick up her and Warnock’s children from school.
That’s not all, though. Warnock’s ex-wife also claims he has yet to hand over various items that their divorce agreement settled would go to her.
In light of these new claims, both Warnock and Ndoye are under orders to partake in custody dispute meditation. A Fulton County judge has also expressed an interest in both parties reaching a mutual agreement by early May.
These new claims against Warnock during his re-election campaign in Georgia are certainly catching a lot of people’s attention. As Warnock continues seeking re-election, he can expect to be asked questions about these allegations of child neglect from his ex-wife.
Warnock’s Likely Opponent
In Georgia, Warnock is very likely to end up facing Republican Herschel Walker.
Walker currently has the endorsement of former President Trump in the Georgia Senate race. Walker is also the frontrunner in the Georgia primary at this time.
This latest race is going to be a huge factor in whether or not Republicans are able to take back control of the Senate in November. As things currently stand, the GOP only needs to take one Senate seat in order for the chamber to shift out of Democrats’ control.
The outcome of Warnock’s legal disputes with his ex-wife could very well play a role in whether or not he’s able to hold onto his seat in the Senate.
As this Senate race continues, Warnock can expect the Georgia GOP to raise these child neglect allegations as a very real concern.
