A staffer for Herschel Walker’s Senate campaign has alleged to The Daily Beast that longtime Republican activist Matt Schlapp made “sustained and unwanted and unsolicited” sexual contact with him while the staffer was driving Schlapp back from an Atlanta bar this October.

The staffer said the incident occurred the night of Oct. 19, when Schlapp, chair of the American Conservative Union and lead organizer for the influential Conservative Political Action Conference, “groped” and “fondled” his crotch in his car against his will after buying him drinks at two different bars.

The staffer described Schlapp, who had traveled to Georgia for a Walker campaign event, as inappropriately and repeatedly intruding into his personal space at the bars. He said he was also keenly aware of his “power dynamic” with Schlapp, widely regarded as one of the most influential figures in national conservative politics.

Schlapp, the staffer recalled, said he had wanted to spend the evening discussing the staffer’s professional future.

“It was a public space, and I was thinking that he got the hint. I did not want to embarrass him,” he said. “But it escalated.”

We are withholding the staffer’s name at his request, citing concerns of drawing attention to himself while embarking on his first weeks in a new job in Republican politics. He said he would come forward with his real name if Schlapp denied his claims.

In a statement to The Daily Beast, Schlapp attorney Charlie Spies called the allegations an “attack” and said Schlapp “denies any improper behavior.”

“This appears to be now the twelfth Daily Beast piece with personal attacks on Matt Schlapp and his family. The attack is false and Mr. Schlapp denies any improper behavior. We are evaluating legal options for response,” the statement said.

The staffer, in his late thirties, recalled that while he drove Schlapp back to the hotel, Schlapp put his hand on his leg, then reached over and “fondled” his crotch at length while he was frozen in shock, calling it “scarring” and “humiliating.” When they arrived at the hotel, the staffer said Schlapp invited him to his room. The staffer said he declined and left “as quickly as I could.”

He informed the campaign about the incident the next morning.

When the staffer got home that night, he received a call from Schlapp—shortly after midnight, according to call records the staffer shared with The Daily Beast—to confirm that the staffer would still chauffeur him to an event in Macon the next day. The staffer described the call as “short and perfunctory,” but after confirming he would drive him, the staffer “broke down.” He then recorded a series of tearful video accounts detailing the evening, which he shared with The Daily Beast as well as with two people close to him, including the staffer’s wife.

“What is wrong with me? This is OK to happen?” he said in one of the videos. “I don’t know what I did. It’s very sad that this is OK.”

In another video, the staffer narrated the events “in regard to Matthew Schlapp, chairman of CPAC, who approximately two hours ago put his hands on me in a sustained and unsolicited and unwanted manner.”

“Matt Schlapp of the CPAC grabbed my junk and pummeled it at length, and I’m sitting there thinking what the hell is going on, that this person is literally doing this to me,” the staffer said in the video.

“From the bar to the Hilton Garden Inn, he has his hands on me. And I feel so fucking dirty. I feel so fucking dirty,” he said.

“I’m supposed to pick this motherfucker up in the morning and just pretend like nothing happened. This is what I’m dealing with,” the staffer continued. “This is what I got to do.”

The staffer’s communications with the campaign the next day, along with further exchanges with Schlapp, were documented in call logs and text messages, which the staffer shared with The Daily Beast, as described below.

At 7:26 a.m., Schlapp sent a text saying, “I’m in the lobby.” One minute later, the staffer called his supervisor, followed by a call with a senior campaign official. The staffer said the senior official was “immediately horrified” and pulled him off the driving duty, instructing him to tell Schlapp in writing that he’d made him uncomfortable.

Right after that call, the staffer sent Schlapp a text.

“I did want to say I was uncomfortable with what happened last night. The campaign does have a driver who is available to get you to Macon and back to the airport,” he texted, providing the name and phone number of the driver.

“Pls give me a call,” Schlapp replied, followed by, “Thx.” Schlapp then called him three times over the next 20 minutes, according to phone records reviewed by The Daily Beast.

When the staffer did not answer or return the calls, Schlapp sent another text, asking him to look “in your heart” and call back.

“If you could see it in your heart to call me at the end of day. I would appreciate it,” Schlapp texted at 12:12 p.m. “If not I wish you luck on the campaign and hope you keep up the good work.”

The staffer said he never called, and has not had any communication with Schlapp since that text. Schlapp, who has been married to conservative commentator and consultant Mercedes Schlapp since 2002, never asked the staffer what had made him uncomfortable.

In interviews, the staffer was emphatic that throughout the ordeal he felt “nothing but support” from Walker campaign officials, saying he never felt pressure and was given “complete autonomy” over how to move forward. The options included legal and therapeutic support, as well as pressing charges.

But the staffer declined to take legal action at the time, telling The Daily Beast he was concerned that speaking out about Schlapp could carry professional consequences and endanger career advancement. (The staffer had previously accompanied Mercedes Schlapp when she visited Wisconsin during the 2020 election.) He also said he felt that going public at the time would only further aggravate what he described as the “circus of scandals” surrounding Walker’s campaign just weeks out from the election. However, he said he is still weighing his options, especially if Schlapp denies the allegations and does not step down from his post at the ACU.

A senior Walker official, authorized to speak on behalf of the campaign, confirmed the details of the campaign’s involvement as the staffer described it, noting the campaign initiated a meeting between the staffer and legal counsel.

It’s not clear whether Walker himself was made aware of the allegations. He did not reply to a request for comment.

A senior campaign official told The Daily Beast that the campaign had no further contact with Schlapp after the incident and did not believe Schlapp took them up on the private driver. The driver told The Daily Beast he did not recall Schlapp, and could find no record of any passenger with that name in his client logs.

Schlapp—a veteran GOP operative whose decades in the upper echelons of the Republican Party include gigs in Congress and the White House—carries enormous clout in conservative politics. The organization he chairs, the ACU, hosts the annual CPAC events, magnets for die-hard conservative politicians which in recent years have been criticized as an increasingly heated incubator for radicals within the party.

The ACU did not reply to questions for this article.

While Schlapp has personally welcomed the LGBTQ community at the conference, CPAC routinely draws criticism for embracing anti-LGBTQ extremists.

In Feb. 2015, the year Schlapp assumed his ACU leadership, the Log Cabin Republicans—an advocacy group for gay conservatives—complained that CPAC had blocked them as a sponsor for the third straight year. A week later, Schlapp reversed that policy.

“If you are a conservative who is gay, you have a right to be here,” Schlapp said, adding that “doesn’t mean we water down our principles.”

But given the type of guests and rhetoric that enjoy a warm home at CPAC—while the GOP itself increasingly embraces dangerous anti-LGBTQ rhetoric—gay rights advocates have blasted the ACU’s outward efforts at inclusivity as disingenuous and exploitative.

Schlapp, a devout Catholic, has personally taken heat from members of the far right for his acceptance of LGBTQ Republicans, while some conservatives have bluntly denounced Schlapp’s nominal acceptance of the queer community as a betrayal of Christian conservative values.

The criticism flared last year when CPAC hosted an overseas conference in Hungary, whose president, Viktor Orbán, has imposed increasingly oppressive restrictions on LGBTQ citizens. In August, Orbán came to CPAC in Dallas, where he spouted a “hardline stance on gay rights” and received a standing ovation.

Schlapp has also come under fire for his defense of alleged sexual abusers like former President Donald Trump and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who partied at the Schlapps’ home this December alongside Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), the subject of a federal sex trafficking investigation.

But when it comes to sexual assault allegations against Democrats, Schlapp hasn’t held his fire, repeatedly targeting President Joe Biden for an unsubstantiated accusation from the 1990s.

“With 5 daughters I’d prefer Biden to be several doors down, not next door,” Schlapp tweeted when those claims first surfaced in 2019.

At the time, Schlapp was entertaining a Senate bid himself. A year later, Schlapp had dropped the political ambitions, but not the mudslinging at Biden.

“Thinking back on the Senate of the 1990s: was there a way for a female staffer who was a sexual assault victim to get fair treatment from an institution that was geared toward protecting senators of both parties,” he wrote on Twitter in 2020. “Biden stressing this event was 27 yrs ago is a bad strategy.”

From r44's article:

Schlapp has made clear her own opposition to marriage equality, writing in U.S. News & World Report in 2012 that President Obama’s declared support for marriage equality was a “political ploy” that “represents the worst in politics.”

“Although his announcement was not a shocking revelation by any means, President Obama’s abrupt decision will lead to many disappointed voters who feel betrayed,” Schlapp wrote. “He will surely re-invigorate conservative and religious voters in key states who continue to feel that President Obama is threatening their religious liberties by imposing his liberal agenda on their churches. From imposing mandates on contraception to now redefining marriage, churches are feeling minimized and frankly persecuted by the administration.”

I think that was smart play by them.

A lawsuit, interesting. So Schlapp is probably going to have to pay to make this go away after all. No sympathy from me: he's fairly obviously gay while working against gay rights.

"Timothy Hyland, a lawyer for the accuser, said in a statement that the lawsuit, which asks for at least $9.4 million in damages, had been filed in part because Mr. Schlapp had not apologized for “his despicable actions.”

“Because Mr. Schlapp has refused to own up to his misbehavior,” Mr. Hyland said in a statement, “this suit aims to make Mr. Schlapp, and those who lie for him, accountable for their actions and statements.”

by Anonymousreply 139January 17, 2023 10:11 PM

He is suing not only because Schlapp didn't apologize. He's also suing for defamation by Mrs. Schlapp, according the NYT story.

[quote] The lawsuit argues that Ms. Schlapp defamed the Walker staff member by telling neighbors that he was a “troubled individual” who had been fired from previous jobs for lying and for making false statements on his résumé. The message was shared on a group text with neighbors, the plaintiff said. The lawsuit says that the plaintiff had not been fired from a job for lying or for lying on his résumé.

Mrs. Schlapp was a vocal opponent of gay marriage, especially before the Supreme Court ruling legalizing it in 2015.

I didn’t say his anonymity “proved he is lying,” I just said it makes it seem like he’s in it for the money.

When this story first broke, John Doe was attributed to have said he would reveal himself if Schlapp denied it. He’s not only denied it, but now they’re coming after him. Yet we’re still calling the victim John Doe AND he’s suing for $9mil.

Like I said, I’m already inclined to believe him. I guess I’m just feeling less sympathetic towards him. I’ll save that sympathy for the inevitable next victims of Schlapp’s predatory behavior.

I can understand his desire for anonymity because he probably knows he isn’t going to get any support from the LGBTQ community who probably figured he was slobbering on Herschel Walker’s BBC in between concussive seizures.

As far as R150, I believe R149 stated a position closer to your conclusion than anything I’ve said so far. But thanks for jumping to conclusions.

JFC?!? what is it with you all that you’d rather take someone’s words out of context than to spend one second of critical thought on this poor guy’s tactics?!

Let me say this again: I believe this happened. I believe John Doe got manhandled by Matt Schlapp. So now what?

I’d like to see Schlapp get taken down by this incident. I had hopes of that when Doe said he wanted an apology and if MS or anyone in the organization were to lie about it, JD would publicly come forward.

It sounded to me as if that would reveal MS for the hypocritical, evil, prisspot that he is AND ALSO prevent something like this from happening to someone else.

Instead we now have a $9mil lawsuit and the official anonymity of “John Doe” (insert eye roll here) If this issue loses steam or never moves forward, it will all end up as “didn’t someone once accuse you, Matt, of something that one time?” To which he will reply “Me? No! I’ve never done anything like this before, now hurry up and cum in my face!” Afterwards, MS will be even more evil and threatening towards his next victim in order to keep him quiet.

Does anyone else think this the best way to achieve change? Have these tactics worked so broadly before? Please, PoisonedDragon, tell me why you think this is going so well!

What was it you were saying about "jumping to conclusions" and taking "someone’s words out of context"? I didn't say anything about the validity of Doe's "tactics"; what I was questioning was your assumption that there could not be any other motive for anonymity than money-grubbing. IMO, that still needs further slapping around. Viciously.

It's reminiscent of Republicans demanding that the names of whistleblowers be entered into the public record so that they can become vulnerable to intimidation and attacks from the right.

For persons who are serial offenders, it's important to establish a chain of reporting, so that the next report can build upon the previous, in terms of establishing a pattern. That's why John Doe's effort is important, and effective in its own way. It still comes across as though you're impugning the victim, and suggesting it would be better that he remain silent. John Doe's efforts are a good start.

ny times 1/17/23

That evening, after returning to Atlanta, Mr. Schlapp invited the staff member for a drink.

The two men met at the Capital Grille, where they chatted about sports, and then drove to a second bar, Manuel’s Tavern, about 25 minutes away, the lawsuit says. At the second bar, Mr. Schlapp sat “unusually close” to the staff member, according to the lawsuit, which claims that his leg “was in almost constant contact” with the aide’s leg.

Mr. Schlapp encouraged the staff member to have more drinks, which made the staff member uncomfortable, the lawsuit says. The staff member turned away from Mr. Schlapp to watch a baseball game on television in the bar, and Mr. Schlapp asked why the aide would not look at him, according to the lawsuit.

The staff member said they had an early event the next morning, and offered to drive Mr. Schlapp back to the hotel, the lawsuit says.

On the way home, Mr. Schlapp allegedly grabbed the staff member’s leg and crotch inside a car while the staff member drove to Mr. Schlapp’s hotel, according to the lawsuit.

The episode left the plaintiff “frozen with shock, mortification, and fear from what was happening, particularly given Mr. Schlapp’s power and status in conservative political circles,” according to the lawsuit.

I don’t think he’s lying about the assault, or how much it bothered him. But I do think his career is his primary focus…he probably thought Walker would be a Senator, he would be a Senate staffer, maybe COS, so that might be why he waited. If it is who is named above, he seems pretty much into the worst of the GOP, including this Walker farce, so it’s not like he can redeem himself as a Dem. So if the PTB turn on him and can no longer work for the GOP, he’s out of politics altogether.

His last hope is a big payday. And maybe he puts the hurt to Schlapp while getting it. But if he doesn’t enrich himself, I probably won’t lose sleep over it.

There is speculation beginning at [R180]. I don't know how to link screenshots, but this is a cut & paste from googling Carlton Huffman Matt Schlapp: Twitter Caroline Wren The former Herschel Walker staffer accusing Matt Schlapp of sexual assault is now suing Jan. ... Staffer Carlton Huffman's tenure working for.

I can't seem to bring up the tweet; perhaps it was deleted. Supposedly Caroline Wren did out the person on Twitter at some point (according to news articles that still were respecting his privacy).

Carlton Huffman was Regional Field Director for Herschel Walker in Atlanta from August '22 until January '23 according to his LinkedIn.

Perhaps someone with better detective skills can find out if this guy is currently in the process of getting a divorce. That would be too many coincidences.

Even if it isn't him, anyone who worked for Herschel Walker's campaign trying to make Walker senator who then turns around and complains about misconduct just because it happened to him is quite something.

There’s a difference between saying “it’s fine it happened” and “we don’t believe the details this douche bag is saying” cause, ya know, he’s a douchebag.

R231 I believe the victim. I just think it's mind blowing that the staffer thinks that defending Herschel Walker and trying to make him senator is a good idea when he finds it so unacceptable when Schlapp does those things to him.

by Anonymousreply 234February 13, 2023 3:15 AM

Sexual assault victims aren't in the witness protection program. The media doesn't report their names to make it easier for victims to come forward and to prevent harassment in higher profile cases.

I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with R227. It's one thing to play internet detective and satisfy your own curiosity. It's another to google fu the identity of a sexual assault victim and post it to an anonymous forum that doesn't allow deletions.

by Anonymousreply 235February 14, 2023 1:45 AM

Probably a Schlapper working to out the accuser or get the post deleted, r235. Maybe both!

The victim is widely known already, regardless of the anonymous court filings…that by itself is nothing out of the ordinary.

The defendant’s attitude and his wife’s public actions since then are extraordinary…a vile couple.

Seems like Mr. Huffman has made enemies. Why would anyone care enough about a state-level House staffer to dig up dirt on him and make sure the press knows?

This is an interesting thread on Twitter.

If you read down it, it says " There's extra pressure on Schlapp as American Conservative Union chairman -- traditionally unpaid position -- because he started getting paid $$$six figures as lobbying biz declined."

Why is Matty getting such a huge salary when no one else has before him? Such grifters.

Nobody likes Matty or Mercy.

The Hill 03/08/23 2:35 PM ET

A longtime Republican campaign aide who accused American Conservative Union Chairman Matt Schlapp of sexual battery came forward publicly on Wednesday after a judge ruled he couldn’t pursue his claims anonymously.

Carlton Huffman gave an interview to The Washington Post and said he plans to amend his lawsuit to include his name once the judge enters the order.

Schlapp has vehemently denied Huffman’s claims.

“I’m not backing away,” Huffman told the Post. “I’m not going to drop this. Matt Schlapp did what he did and he needs to be held accountable.”

Huffman’s lawsuit alleges Schlapp was “aggressively fondling” his groin while the two drove back from a restaurant to a hotel on Oct. 19 after attending an event to support Herschel Walker’s Republican Senate campaign in Georgia.

The complaint accuses Schlapp of battery and goes on to allege that he and his wife, Mercedes Schlapp, defamed Huffman after news reports about his allegations surfaced.

When the suit was first filed, an attorney for the Schlapps criticized the request for anonymity and said it demonstrated that the accuser’s agenda was to harm the Schlapp family.

“The plaintiff has not established I think the heavy burden of establishing both a concrete need for secrecy and identifying the consequences that would likely befall him if forced to proceed in his own name,” said Alexandria Circuit Court Judge Lisa Bondareff Kemler, according to the Post.

The Hill has reached out to attorneys for the Schlapps and Huffman for comment.

In his interview with the Post, Huffman acknowledged years-old racist writings on a WordPress blog, which included glorifications of the Confederate flag and posts criticizing diversity and non-European heritage.

Huffman left a job as a policy adviser in the North Carolina House Speaker’s office in January after one month, according to his LinkedIn, after the blog resurfaced.

“That was an ugly chapter of my life that I am personally ashamed of,” Huffman told the Post. “That is not who I am anymore.”

The development comes days after the conclusion of the Conservative Political Action Conference, Schlapp’s organization’s flagship annual event.

by Anonymousreply 256March 8, 2023 11:54 PM

Because it’s a local story of sorts, the local news dug deep. Apparently the accuser is also an accused:

[quote] The lawsuit was filed in January. In February, a woman filed for a restraining order against Huffman, alleging that he assaulted her in his Raleigh home. Huffman was ordered to stay away from her for a year. The paperwork says she accused him of “digitally penetrating plaintiff without plaintiff’s permission” on Feb. 15.

[quote] “Although plaintiff was engaged in acts with another person, she didn’t give permission to defendant to engage in the sexual activities,” the protection order states.

[quote] Huffman told WRAL News Wednesday that he is “innocent of improper conduct.”
