For a lot of men, women are a mystery.
Many of us don’t have a firm grip on why they do what they do, nor is it widely understood that the actions of men are often directly responsible for a woman’s moods, words, and actions.
Now, that’s not saying women don’t act independently and of their own volition. It just means that, when a man and woman enter into a relationship—especially a marriage—there are certain things that confuse those of us who possess the Y chromosome.
Marriage is both the easiest and hardest thing you will ever do.
But there is one rule that a lot of men know—though few live by—that will make your time on earth with your spouse pleasant instead of torturous: happy wife, happy life.
This is something that DNC Senate candidate Raphael Warnock is learning firsthand—and at the worst possible time for it to happen, too.
When The Thrill Is Gone…
See, due to the closeness of the Senate race in their state, Georgia is having two runoff races between the GOP and DNC.
The two match-ups are incumbent GOP Senator David Perdue taking on DNC candidate Jon Ossoff and incumbent GOP Senator Kelly Loeffler facing off against Raphael Warnock, a pastor and the DNC’s favored candidate.
Now, while there is a bunch of news surrounding these respective races, it’s the recent revelation out of the Warnock’s side that is really turning heads—and it just may cost him the election.
See, Warnock recently divorced his ex-wife, Ouleye Ndoye, after a tumultuous six years of marriage.
Now, during what could be the most important time in her ex-husband’s campaign, she is telling everybody who’ll listen that Warnock isn’t who they think he is.
Ndoye is now alleging that Warnock ran over her foot with his car—on purpose—during a domestic dispute that the two were having back in March.
There’s also actual bodycam footage of the incident taken by the police officera that were called to the pastor’s home.
Watch it HERE:
The footage of the incident shows a crying Ndoye telling cops that her then-husband had injured her foot while trying to drive away with their children.
She told the officers, “This man’s running for United States Senate, and all he cares about right now is his reputation. I’ve been very quiet about the way that he is for the sake of my kids and his reputation.”
Which makes sense…
Even though they’re divorced, having a Senator as an ex-husband when you’re in politics yourself (Ndoye works in the Atlanta Mayoral office under Keisha Lance Bottoms) can give you a lot of pull.
But there comes a time when even the potential of an easy life loses its luster.
Ndoye continued, “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. And he’s a great actor. He is phenomenal at putting on a really good show.”
This was in reference to the interaction that Warnock had with the officers before they talked to her.
Now, it’s important to note that the medics didn’t find any injuries…but that doesn’t mean the incident didn’t happen exactly how Ndoye described.
The question is, will it put any doubt in the minds of voters who were on the fence about who to vote for?
Or are we so far gone as a society that it doesn’t matter what kind of a man this candidate is? Will people simply vote for “R” or “D” and dismiss terrible behavior altogether?
Only time will tell…
But regardless, it’s not a good look for Warnock – and if you live in Georgia, it’s time to spread the word.
