In bodycam footage revealed Tuesday on Tucker Carlson Tonight, the ex-wife of Georgia Democrat Senate candidate Rev. Raphael Warnock told police in March that her husband is a “great actor” and “phenomenal at putting on a really good show.”
Ouleye Ndoye made her comments to Atlanta police right after a domestic dispute in March in which she accused Warnock of running over her foot with a car. Warnock denied the accusation and a medical examiner said Ndoye’s foot did not show signs of injury.
The new bodycam footage shows Ndoye tearing up as she speaks to police after the incident, saying, “This man’s running for United States Senate, and all he cares about right now is his reputation. I work at the mayor’s office, and this is a big problem. I’ve been trying to be very quiet about the way that he is for the sake of my kids and his reputation.
“I’ve tried to keep the way that he acts under wraps for a long time, and today he crossed the line,” she continued. “So that is what is going on here, and he’s a great actor. He is phenomenal at putting on a really good show.”
The argument between the couple arose over divorce paperwork as Warnock was preparing to formally challenge Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) in Georgia’s race for U.S. Senate. Ndoye and Warnock officially divorced a couple months later.
In the bodycam footage, Warnock gave police his version: “I barely move, and all of the sudden she’s screaming that I ran over her foot. I don’t believe it.” Warnock was not charged with any crime.
Warnock’s Senate seat competitor Loeffler said in a statement that she finds Ndoye’s allegation to be “a very serious issue” and that the new footage is “certainly difficult to watch. Georgians deserve answers to these very serious allegations, and his ex-wife’s voice deserves to be heard.”
