If a Republican Senate candidate had a fraction of Warnock’s resume, the media and SNL would be drunk on it for weeks. The media will only praise the Dem Senate candidate for Georgia. But the toxicity is overflowing.
This started with Warnock falsely calling Israel an apartheid state, and defending Jeremiah Wright. Then things escalated from there to his role as assistant pastor in a church that celebrated Fidel Castro.
And there was the time that his wife accused him of running over her foot during an argument.
More from the AJC: “The Rev. Raphael Warnock, a Democrat running for U.S. Senate, was accused by his wife of running over her foot with his car during a heated argument days before he filed paperwork to officially seek the office, according to a police report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.”
Maybe not the ideal candidate?
But things get really freaky with this Warnock story.
Two Baltimore ministers have been charged with obstructing a police investigation into suspected child abuse at a church-run camp in Carroll County.
The Revs. Raphael Gamalial Warnock, 33, and Mark Andre Wainwright, 30, of Douglas Memorial Community Church are accused in court documents of trying to prevent a state trooper from interviewing counselors at the church’s Camp Farthest Out in Eldersburg.
A state trooper assigned to the case said neither of the clergymen is a suspect in the child abuse investigation, but the officer would not describe the nature of the suspected abuse.
Warnock, who is senior pastor of the West Baltimore church, said yesterday that the alleged abuse is not sexual. Because the investigation is continuing, he refused to further discuss the accusations of child abuse.
The ministers interrupted a police interview of a counselor Wednesday in a room at the camp and, after investigators moved the interview to a nearby picnic area, interfered again and subsequently tried to prevent a camper from directing police to another potential witness, according to charging documents.
“I’ve never encountered resistance like that at all,” said Trooper Diane Barry of the state police Child and Sexual Assault Unit in Westminster. Barry said the counselors consented to the interviews after being told they were free to go at any time and were not obligated to answer her questions.
Warnock has certainly led a charmed life.
Could Democrats have found a worse candidate for anything?
