Dem Operative Arrested for Allegedly Assaulting a Female Campaign Staffer

A Democratic operative employed by the outside group American Bridge was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly assaulting Kristin Davison, the campaign manager for Attorney General Adam Laxalt’s (R-NV) gubernatorial campaign.

The alleged altercation happened an event at the East Las Vegas Community Center, and according to Davison the American Bridge staffer, named Mike Stark, “physically pushed his body on me multiple times. I asked him to stop and to back away and he did not.”

Politico reported on Wednesday that after this initial altercation, “Laxalt and his staff then retreated to a conference room.”

But Stark “pushed the door wide open, trapping myself and staff in the doorway,” according to Davison.

According to Politico:

“At that point he continued to yell and hold a camera in my face,” Davison continued. “I could not move. Stark grabbed my right arm, twisted it behind my back, squeezed it very hard and every time I tried to pull away he pulled me closer and gripped my arm tighter.”

“Davison wrote that she started screaming for help and that Stark was hurting her. Multiple colleagues tried to pull Stark off, according to the police report, and then someone called the police.”

This isn’t the first time that Stark has been accused of assaulting a woman.

In March of this year, Stark was accused of assaulting Interior Department press secretary and senior adviser Heather Swift. Stark was eventually acquitted of these charges, because of lack of evidence.

Stark was also found guilty of disorderly conduct in 2017, according to the Washington Post.
