ATLANTA — Herschel Walker campaigns for the US Senate as a champion of free enterprise and advocate for the mentally ill, felons and others at the margins of society. And the Georgia Republican has called for policies that blend those priorities.

“If someone comes out of prison, they should have incentives set up that the person has learned a trade, and you give an incentive for a company to hire him so he can make a living for himself,” Walker said, Aug. 17, in Kennesaw, Ga.

Weak...very Weak. The Democrats are desperate. In Georgia you are put on a chain gang and forced to pave new roads...for free. But most prisoners "never" return....Unlike Cali and other states where there is a constant revolving door....and where almost everyone is a "Repeat Offender".
