Matt Schlapp, Wife Hit With Lawsuit Over Alleged Sexual Assault

  • American Conservative Union Matt Schlapp and his wife, former Trump administration official Mercedes Schlapp, were sued Tuesday over an allegation that he sexually assaulted a former staff member of Republican Herschel Walker’s Georgia Senate campaign in October.
  • Charlie Spies, an attorney for Matt and Mercedes Schlapp, denied the allegation in a statement posted on Matt Schlapp’s Twitter page, saying “the Schlapp family is suffering unbearable pain and stress due to the false allegation from an anonymous individual” and noting the couple is “assessing counter-lawsuit options.”
  • Spies added that the complaint, which was filed anonymously, demonstrates that the accuser’s agenda is to harm the Schlapp family.
