From the Mixed-Up Files of Rev. Raphael Warnock
With control of the United States Senate in issue, the mainstream media have left it to the Washington Free Beacon and Free Beacon reporter Alana Goodman to explore the background of Democratic Senate candidate Raphael Warnock. Goodman’s latest report on Warnock recounts the testimony of former camper Anthony Washington at the church camp overseen by Warnock. Washington testifies to the counselors who tossed urine on him and locked him outside his cabin overnight while Warnock did his best to obstruct a related investigation:
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.
Washington’s account of the 2002 events provides the first direct insight into the alleged abuse and neglect that transpired at Camp Farthest Out, which Warnock oversaw as senior pastor of Maryland’s Douglas Memorial Community church, and raises new questions for the Democrat, who is currently vying for a Senate seat in Georgia.
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.” read more
