Attendee of Warnock’s camp alleges counselors threw urine on him, forced him to sleep outside

A man who attended a summer camp run by Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Raphael Warnock, says counselors threw urine on him and forced him to sleep outside, the Washington Free Beacon has reported.

Anthony Washington, now 30, attended Camp Farthest Out in Carroll County, Maryland in 2002. Washington was 12-years-old at the time and had just moved to Maryland from California with his family. His mother sent him and his sister to the camp – a rural church-run camp for inner city children – to make friends.

According to the report, Warnock was a senior pastor at Douglas Memorial Community Church, which oversaw the camp.

Washington told the Free Beacon that after wetting his bed one night, he was forced to sleep outside on the basketball court without a pillow or blanket.

“I’m like, ‘hell no I’m not, it’s cold out there,’” Washington said in an interview with the Free Beacon. “[The counselors] wouldn’t let me in the house, not at all. … Shut the door to the cabin, locked it. It was dark. There wasn’t nothing out there but the basketball court. I ain’t never experienced nothing like that. Like, you’re not in a tent, you’re not in nothing. You’re just out, God knows where.”

Counselors also threw urine on him from a bucket they used when there wasn’t a bathroom nearby, he added.

Washington said he saw counselors “grab kids,” adding that he was worried for himself and his sister.

Campers were prohibited from calling their parents. When Washington was finally able to tell his mother about his experience at the camp, she went to court.

Washington said his family eventually received a financial settlement in the case.

“I went through that experience myself,” Washington said. “I don’t even like talking about this shit.”

By 2003, the state shut down the camp.

Warnock defended himself at the time, telling The Baltimore Sun in August of that year that he and the other reverend at the camp had acted “well within the framework of the law, and I am confident that we will be exonerated.”

“It’s just unfortunate that our children had to see their pastors carried away in handcuffs,” he continued. “My concern simply had to do with the presence of counsel. We cooperated fully with their investigation. We have nothing to hide.”

According to the 2002 police report, Warnock was “uncooperative and disruptive” when they arrested him for allegedly obstructing a child abuse investigation by Maryland State Police that centered on the camp’s treatment of children. Law enforcement officers had “never encountered” resistance like Warnock’s.

Kelly Loeffler, Warnock’s Republican opponent, called the allegations of abuse “disgusting” and “alarming.” She said Georgians have a right to know what Warnock’s involvement with the camp was, and how much he knew about the alleged abuse.

“Clearly something was going on here,” Loeffler said in an interview with the National Review. “This is the camp that he ran, that he oversaw, that he was involved in every single day, that was later shut down and he left the church.”

Warnock is currently running against Loeffler for the Georgia Senate position.

“I don’t think nobody like [Warnock] should be running for damn Senate nowhere, running a camp like that,” Washington said. “He should not be running for government.”

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
