Raphael Warnock, one of the two Democrats in Georgia’s Senate runoff elections, has denied accusations that he ran over his now ex-wife’s foot with his car.

Police body-camera footage from the March incident was released Tuesday on Tucker Carlson Tonight.

Warnock and ex-wife Ouleye Ndoye were reportedly in a domestic dispute when the incident occurred. Warnock denied that he ran over her foot and told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that “it didn’t happen.”

He told police that his wife refused to close the right rear passenger door of his car so that he could leave. He said he began to “slowly” drive forward and then heard his wife accuse him of driving over her foot.

“I barely move, and all of a sudden she’s screaming that I ran over her foot. I don’t believe it,” Warnock told the officers.

According to the footage, Ndoye told the officer at the scene, “This man is running for United States Senate and all he cares about right now is his reputation.”

“I’ve been trying to be very quiet about the way that he is for the sake of my kids and his reputation,” she continues. “I’ve tried to keep the way that he acts under wraps for a long time and today he crossed the line. So that is what is going on here. He’s a great actor. He’s phenomenal at putting on a really good show.”

AJC reported that Warnock was not charged with a crime and according to the police report, medical officials did not find visible signs of injury on her foot.

Warnock and Ndoye were amid divorce negotiations when the incident occurred. The divorce was finalized two months later.

Elizabeth Warren Acknowledges Unintended Consequences of Obamacare



Elizabeth Warren

Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, a longtime supporter of the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, is now acknowledging the unintended consequences of the healthcare legislation, particularly its impact on industry consolidation and rising healthcare prices.

Warren, who has been a vocal proponent of Obamacare, has recently had what the Wall Street Journal reported as an “epiphany” regarding the consequences of the healthcare law. In a letter addressed to the Health and Human Services Department inspector general, Warren, along with Senator Mike Braun of Indiana, expressed concerns about vertically-integrated healthcare companies potentially increasing prescription drug costs and evading federal regulations.

According to reports from Fox News, the bipartisan letter highlighted issues with the nation’s largest health insurers allegedly bypassing Obamacare’s medical loss ratio (MLR). According to Warren, these insurers, through vertical integration, have manipulated the system, leading to “sky-high prescription drug costs and excessive corporate profits.”

The senators detailed how conglomerates, like UnitedHealth Group, with ownership across various healthcare sectors, could inflate medical payments to pharmacies and, by realizing those payments on the pharmacy side, appear to comply with MLR requirements while retaining more profits.

Moreover, despite the Democrats’ argument that the MLR would benefit patients, it has incentivized insurers to merge with or acquire pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), retail and specialty pharmacies, and healthcare providers. This, in turn, has made healthcare spending less transparent, as insurers can allegedly shift profits to their affiliates by increasing reimbursements.

Warren, who has consistently voted against Obamacare repeal efforts, notably advocated for a “Medicare for All” proposal during her 2020 presidential campaign. Despite her prior support for the healthcare law, Warren’s recent concerns about its unintended consequences have raised questions about the long-term effects of Obamacare and its impact on the healthcare industry.
