Boy at Center of Warnock Abuse Investigation Speaks Out
In the past few weeks, dashcam video has come out from the aftermath of Warnock's confrontation with his ex, when she claimed he ran over her foot.
And the media has maintained its wall of silence.
Among the indignities 12-year-old Anthony Washington endured at the church camp overseen by Reverend Raphael Warnock: counselors who tossed urine on him and locked him outside his cabin overnight.
Washington, now 30, recounted the events in an interview with the Washington Free Beacon and said his experience at the camp resulted in a 2003 lawsuit that ended two years later, when Washington says he and his family received a large financial settlement.
Warnock, if you will recall, was arrested for obstructing an abuse investigation. The leftist preacher and the media loudly insisted that he had just been protecting the children from being questioned.
That excuse is now dead as a doornail. Just don't expect the media to acknowledge it.
Much as it never bothered reporting on the lawsuit or the resulting financial settlement because that would have destroyed the fake news narrative.
It fell to Alana and the Free Beacon to actually do the journalism that the media refuses to perform.
Washington expressed surprise when he was told Warnock is currently running for U.S. Senate in Georgia. "I don’t think nobody like [Warnock] should be running for damn Senate nowhere, running a camp like that," he told the Free Beacon. "He should not be running for government."
Warnock has faced scrutiny over his 2002 arrest for allegedly obstructing a child abuse investigation by Maryland State Police that centered on the camp's treatment of children. Washington's account is buttressed by records from the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, obtained by the Free Beacon earlier this month, which indicated that campers were routinely left unsupervised; staffers were not subject to required criminal background check; and at least five cases of child abuse or neglect were brought against the camp's director, who was ultimately forced to resign.
"I just wanted to get the hell away from that camp," Washington said in an interview. "I didn’t want to spend another day there. … That camp was real messed up."
Washington’s sister, Dominique, who also attended Camp Farthest Out the summer her brother says he was abused, corroborated the family’s involvement in the lawsuit when contacted by the Free Beacon. Another source close to the Washington family told the Free Beacon that the lawsuit was related to an incident when counselors "poured urine on [Anthony], at the camp."
Washington said he saw counselors "grab kids," but didn’t know the extent of abuse at the camp or whether others had experiences similar to his. "I just knew that shit happened to me, and that’s what I was worried about, me and my sister," he said.
Campers were prohibited from calling their parents, he said. When he was finally able to tell his mother what happened, she was furious at the camp. "I can hear her in there, screaming at them," Washington said. "Next thing I knew, my mother was going to court. … I thank my mother for doing what she did. She is a life saver."
This was Warnock's idea of protecting the children. And this is why he was actually arrested.
This is also the horrible human being into whose campaign the Democrat elite has poured over $100 million while Warnock's campaign keeps begging for more.
