Police Bodycam Shows Alternation Between GA Sen. Candidate Warnock and His Now Ex-Wife
Fox News host Tucker Carlson obtained exclusive police bodycam footage showing an altercation between Georgia Senate candidate Raphael Warnock and his now ex-wife in March, with her claiming he ran over her foot with his car when trying to leave their Atlanta home.
From the Daily Caller:
Warnock’s then-wife, Ouleye Ndoye, appears to tell police that her husband is “a great actor” who is “phenomenal at putting on a really good show” after he denied purposefully running over her foot.
The pastor and Democratic U.S. Senate candidate was not charged with a crime after police found no damage to his wife’s foot. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution first reported on the incident in March as Warnock was just beginning his Senate campaign.
Warnock can be seen in the video denying he ran over her foot on purpose, claiming he thought she was clear of the car when he started to move.
Later in the video, Ndoye tells officers that her then-husband is running for Senate and is trying to protect his reputation.
“This man’s running for United States Senate, and all he cares about right now is his reputation,” Ndoye told the officer. “I’ve been trying to be very quiet about the way that he is for the sake of my kids and his reputation. I’ve tried to keep the way that he acts under wraps for a long time, and today he crossed the line. So that is what is going on here. And he’s a great actor. He is phenomenal at putting on a really good show.”
Polls currently show a tight race in both Georgia Senate runoff elections, which will decide the balance of power in the U.S. Senate. According to a FiveThirtyEight analysis of the available polls, incumbent Republican David Perdue is tied with Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff at 48.6% each. Warnock is currently running slightly ahead of Republican incumbent Kelly Loefler with a lead of only .4 points.
Republicans currently hold a slim 50-48 advantage in the upper chamber, needing one of the two races to break their way in order to maintain their majority.
