Former Georgia football star running back Herschel Walker wants an election do-over.
Herschel Walker is arguably the greatest running back in the history of college football. But as a political commentator, he makes a great running back.
The former Georgia superstar and college football Hall of Famer is not happy with the outcome of the presidential election. Walker has been an advocate of President Donald Trump so when the election results swayed in favor of Joe Biden after Election Day when the mail-in ballots began to be counted, Walker’s horse began to fade down the stretch.
Walker tweeted on Friday night that he wants a do-over in seven states where the votes were close and went in favor of Biden in a 6-1 margin, including the states that haven’t been called but where Biden leads.
Herschel Walker is not sure how elections work
“Instead of us fighting and going to court, why don’t we have Nevada, Arizona, Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin vote again,” Walker tweeted. “We can have it done within a week, and maintain our democracy.”
Sorry, but this isn’t a best-of-three series where we can have a do-over — in the states you want — because you don’t like the results. Yes, there will be recounts in some of these states to determine the official, official results, but the democracy that Walker tweets he wants to maintain does not allow for a second chance vote.
Consider this, if Florida loses to Georgia later this afternoon, Georgia can’t go to the SEC commissioner and demand a do-over and play the game next week because they didn’t like the outcome. That’s not how this works! That’s not how any of this works.
And consider if Georgia does beat Florida later this afternoon, how would Walker feel if coaches, players and fans from the Gators spouted off unfounded lies and conspiracies that Georgia cheated to win?
Well, I’m willing to bet Walker would think they were being sore losers and they should have done better with the one chance they had.
