Senator Raphael Warnock, a Democrat from Georgia, slammed Republican Georgia Senate opponent, Herschel Walker, for producing a prop police badge during their debate.

WARNOCK: “I think what we saw clearly Friday night and last night, is that my opponent Herschel Walker is not ready. I pointed out the fact that he claimed to be in law enforcement, to be a police officer, and that he threatened a shootout with the police, and his response was to produce a fake badge? The people of Georgia deserve a serious person to represent them at serious times and I'm committed to doing that work. I've been very transparent about my life. I've meant what I've said, I've said what I meant. It's an open book. He on the other hand claimed to be a police officer, he's not, even though he produced a badge on the Friday night. Claimed to work for the FBI, clearly did not. Claimed to be a college graduate, he's not. Claimed to be a valedictorian of his class, he was not. Claimed to have 800 employees on his business, he has eight. Claimed to have started a business that does not even exist. So I guess he expects the people of Georgia now to hallucinate and imagine that he is also a United States Senator. He's clearly not ready.”
