Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker is facing criticism for failing to correctly report around $3.2 million in earnings in his 2021 federal financial disclosure.

After filing the report which listed his income at $927,886 last December, the Senate hopeful amended the amount to come in at $4.1 million five months later. The filing indicated that he had made $3.2 million through a company called “H. Walker Enterprises.”

It is unclear what Walker’s role in the company is.

Critics are calling Walker out for lack of transparency, arguing that it was unfair to his supporters to be given incomplete facts when making their decision to support his campaign. Though he may have misled supporters, Walker is unlikely to face consequences. In the past, candidates who incorrectly reported their income have been let off relatively easy. Sometimes they are required to pay a fine.
