Some see Larry Elder as the top contender to unseat Gavin Newsom, but now he is being accused of domestic abuse by his former fiancee.
Alexandra Datig, the former Finacee of the Conservative radio host, has filed a formal complaint with the Los Angeles Police department over an allegation of domestic abuse while they were together.
The LAPD has confirmed to reporters the existence of the complaint but will not release any more details.
The complaint was filed after larry elder had been fighting off allegations by his former fiancee of verbal abuse that leads to a gun being brandish during a physical altercation. Alexandria Datig told politico that she had not filed the complaint to police after the altercation due to fear but decided to do it now that he denies her claims about the gun.
Dating said in the interview – “it’s time to draw the line,” she went on to say, “I am not the one that has to come clean about my life; he is.”
Among abuse, Datig told politico that the complaint also included Elder asking her to have an “open relationship” and “unwanted sexual activities.”
In the complaint to the LAPD, Datig said – “He was angry and exhibited hostility towards me in the form of silent scorn during our conversations,” she went on to say, “He proceeded to open the drawer and reached inside for his .45 caliber revolver. Making sure the firearm was in my view, he opened the cylindrical, rotating part of the revolver, checking to make sure the gun was loaded with cartridges. He proceeded to close the cylinder, again, make sure the firearm was in my view, and then proceeded to put the firearm back in the drawer.”
The Elder campaign released the following statement – “I have never brandished a gun at anyone. I grew up in South Central; I know exactly how destructive this type of behavior is. It’s not me, and everyone who knows me knows it’s not me,” Elder said in the statement. “These are salacious allegations. People do not get into public life precisely because of this type of politics of personal destruction. I am not going to dignify this with a response—it’s beneath me.”
Both Democrats and Republicans say that the new allegation against Elder could give Gavin Newsom the edge he needed to survive the recall election!
