A brutal new political ad targeting Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker focuses on his alleged abuse of his ex-wife, Cindy DeAngelis Grossman.
The ad produced by The Republican Accountability Project PAC shows archival footage of an interview Grossman did taken after the publication of Walker’s 2008 book, ”Breaking Free: My Life with Dissociative Identity Disorder.”
In the clip, Grossman discusses how Walker threatened her at times:
His eyes would become very evil … The guns and knives. I got into a few choking things with him. The first time he held the gun to my head, he held the gun to my temple and said he was gonna blow my brains out.
You can see the clip below:
Grossman filed for divorce in December 2001, and returned to court in 2005 for a protective order after Walker repeatedly said he wanted to kill her and her boyfriend.
Walker “stated unequivocally that he was going to shoot my sister Cindy and her boyfriend in the head,” her sister said, according to court records.
In December, 2021, Walker told Axios that he was “accountable” for past violent behavior toward his ex-wife and said people shouldn’t feel “ashamed” about confronting mental health issues.
He also said that he considered his ex to be his “best friend.”
Walker currently trails Democratic incumbent Raphael Warnock in polls by 4.4 points according to RealClearPolitics.
