Male Herschel Walker Staffer Says Conservative Leader Matt Schlapp ‘Groped’ Him Repeatedly
A staffer on Herschel Walker‘s Senate campaign has alleged that the prominent Republican activist made “sustained and unwanted and unsolicited” sexual contact with him.
Schlapp is the chairman of the American Conservative Union and a key ally of former President Donald Trump.
The staffer said the incident occurred on the night of October 19 when Schlapp “groped” his crotch in his car after buying him drinks.
News outlets are currently withholding the staffer’s name at his request over fears that allegations against a powerful Republican could harm his own political career.
Schlapp’s lawyer, Charlie Spies, told The Daily Beast that the allegations were an “attack” and that Schlapp “denies any improper behavior.”
A senior official on the Walker campaign confirmed that the staffer shared the details of the incident with his supervisors.
On October 19, Schlapp was at Walker’s campaign event in Perry, Georgia. The Walker staffer was assigned to drive Schlapp. Schlapp invited him for drinks. There, the staffer said, Schlapp began “intruding into my personal space.”
As the staffer drove Schlapp back to his hotel, Schlapp began fondling his leg. This progressed until Schlapp grabbed his “junk and pummeled it at length.”
When they arrived at the hotel, Schlapp invited the staffer to his room, but he declined. The staffer then began recording videos, recalling what had allegedly happened. He also reached out to the senior campaign staff the following morning, and they advised him on what to say when Schlapp texted the next morning saying he was ready to be chauffeured.
Both the staffer and the senior campaign official told NBC News that the campaign team made legal counsel available. The staffer has not pursued legal action against Schlapp as of yet. He has chosen to speak to the media to make others aware of Schlapp’s “predatory behavior.”
