Democrats cannot afford to lose one Senate seat this November if they want to keep their majority.
Those hopes appear to be slipping away.
And Chuck Schumer just found out some bad news in court that could cost him everything.
If Democrats have any hope of retaining their Senate majority, socialist Democrat Raphael Warnock must defend his seat in Georgia against likely Republican nominee and former football star Hershel Walker.
Polls show Walker holding a narrow lead.
And now a disturbing scandal surrounding Warnock allegedly mistreating his wife threatens to drive the final nail in his coffin.
Warnock and his wife are in the middle of a messy child custody dispute.
Warnock’s wife, Oulèye Ndoye, accused the Democrat Senator of harassing her by attempting to subpoena her college records.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Sen. Raphael Warnock’s (D., Ga.) ex-wife is fighting his attempt to subpoena her decade-old college records as part of a child custody dispute, saying his request is irrelevant to the case and intended “purely for the purpose of embarrassing and harassing” her.
Warnock subpoenaed his ex-wife Oulèye Ndoye’s records from Emory University on April 27, including her grades, transcripts, immunization verification, and any disciplinary files dating back to 2012.
Ndoye’s attorney asked the court to quash the subpoena on Monday, saying it “clearly has absolutely nothing to do with this litigation” and was aimed at harassing her.
“None of the requests are relevant, nor will they lead to the discovery of relevant evidence,” said Ndoye’s lawyer in a motion. “They are unduly burdensome, unreasonable, and oppressive.”
This is not the first time Ndoye has accused Warnock of abuse.
When Warnock ran for Senate in 2020, Ndoye accused him of running over her foot with his car.
Democrats are already facing stiff Midterm headwinds from Joe Biden’s socialist spending, skyrocketing inflation, Joe Biden’s open borders agenda, and crime running rampant in Democrat-run cities.
If Democrats want to keep Chuck Schumer as Majority Leader, they need to pitch a perfect game.
And the continued ugly court battle between Senator Warnock and his wife creates a massive political headache in one of what will surely be the most competitive – and crucial – races in the 2022 Midterm election cycle.
