A Democratic operative funded by George Soros was arrested for battery Tuesday after the campaign manager for Nevada Republican gubernatorial nominee Adam Laxalt claims he grabbed her arm and would not let go, leaving her bruised on her neck and arms.
The campaign manager, Kristin Davison, 31, says Wilfred Michael Stark, 50, who is funded by both Soros and David Brock, has since left her “terrified and traumatized” after the attack, according to Fox News. Stark was arrested by Las Vegas city marshals Tuesday night after Davison filed a “battery” charge against him.
Stark was previously arrested for allegedly assaulting the female press secretary for Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke in March. He also was arrested tracking Republican gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie.
“After an education rally, a large male liberal operative began chasing members of the Laxalt campaign and the attorney general, getting physically aggressive to push himself onto staff. When the team entered a side room and closed the door, the man pushed the door open — trapping Kristin in the doorway, grabbing her arm, and forcefully twisting it behind her back and squeezing,” Laxalt campaign communications director Parker Briden told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
