Ethics violation statement

In a televised debate on July 11, 2014, against fellow Republican runoff candidate Phil Berger, Jr., Walker claimed, "Just yesterday we were able to find out that the Chief Justice of Ethics of the North Carolina Supreme Court reprimanded him [Berger] for misleading the jury not based on the facts."[7] Walker later apologized for the inaccurate claim, as he had actually been citing a 1935 U.S. Supreme Court case involving a completely different person with the last name of Berger. Walker said that he had been given the information by "a government source in Raleigh."[7]
