Christian Walker, the gay son of failed GOP Senate candidate and retired NFL player Herschel Walker, has called on influential Republican Matt Schlapp to resign as the lead organizer for the far-right Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) after Schlapp’s alleged sexual misconduct with a male staffer who worked for Herschel Walker’s campaign.
In a video rant posted to Twitter, Christian Walker said, “Matt Schlapp — head of CPAC, big ‘family values’ conservative guy, married to a woman, they have five children together — Took one of my dad’s campaign staffers out for drinks … and when the staffer was dropping Matt off at his hotel, Matt reached over, inappropriately grabbed the staffer, but here’s the kicker: The staffer is a man married to a woman… and then, when they get to the hotel, Matt Schlapp invites the staffer up to his hotel room.”
Walker notes that the staffer reported Schlapp’s alleged behavior to other officials in Herschel Walker’s campaign.
“Matt pulls a typical predator move,” Walker continues. “Texts the guy back when the guy is not answering his calls. He texts him, ‘If you can find it in your heart to, give me a call,’ because Matt knows he’s been caught now. So when he’s on campaign trips away from his wife and children, he’s trying to hook up with men??!”
“This guy needs to resign from CPAC, lose his contributorship deals,” Walker’s video concludes. “This is horrible behavior…. horrible representation.”

Other Republicans are standing by Schlapp. Two members of the board of the American Conservative Union, which organizes the CPAC, have said they support Schlapp from what they call “character assassination.”
“We stand squarely behind Matt Schlapp, and the ACU Board of Directors has full confidence in his leadership of the organization,” said Charlie Gerow and Carolyn Meadows. “We have both known Matt and his wife Mercedes for decades. We know Matt Schlapp’s heart and his character. And we believe this latest attempt at character assassination is false.”
“Unfortunately, the Left and its note takers in the media routinely choose to scorch the earth in their quest to cancel those with whom they disagree. Whether It involves conservative judicial nominees or good people like Matt Schlapp, they will sink to any depth to destroy them and their families.”
Coincidentally, this is only the most recent time that Walker has blasted an anti-LGBTQ+ conservative activist for allegedly engaging in sexual misconduct.
In December 2022, Walker blasted podcaster Elijah Schaffer, a man who criticized Herschel Walker for losing Georgia’s Senate seat to a Democrat, for allegedly cheating on his wife while attending a political conference.
“Elijah wants to act like he’s some moral high and mighty, better-than-everyone man,” Walker said in a video shared on social media. “He was fired from his job for inappropriate behavior and, not even a year ago at a conservative conference, he did my friend four times in one night – unprotected – while he was married.”
“Go get your family life and your morality together, adulterer!” Walker continued. “You go study up on what morality actually is, because it ain’t cheatin’ on your wife.”
During his father’s campaign, Walker, who is attracted to men but doesn’t like being called “gay,” said that his father’s repeated death threats against him and his mother forced them to move “six times in six months.”
“I don’t care about someone who has a bad past and takes accountability. But how DARE YOU LIE and act as though you’re some ‘moral, Christian, upright man,’” Walker’s son wrote in an October 3, 2022 tweet about his father. “You’ve lived a life of DESTROYING other peoples lives. How dare you.”
Herschel Walker called his son “ugly” in a recently resurfaced 2019 video.
After his father lost his campaign for Georgia’s Senate seat, Walker wrote a series of tweets that said Herschel Walker’s family, friends, and advisors all begged him not to run.
“We got the middle finger,” Walker wrote. “He ran.”
“Republicans, we say we don’t play ‘identity politics’ and then you ran this man mainly because he was the same skin color as his opponent with no background other than football,” Walker said of the Republican Party. “A boring old Republican could have won.”
“Don’t beat women, hold guns to people’s heads, fund abortions then pretend you’re pro-life, stalk cheerleaders, leave your multiple minor children alone to chase more fame, lie, lie, lie, say stupid crap, and make a fool of your family,” Walker added about his dad. “And then maybe you can win a senate seat.”
