Whoever dubbed this the Jobs vs. Mobs election was on to something. Yesterday we had the threatening letter left at Sen. Collins’ home. Today, Fox News reports that a “tracker” with the left-wing group American Bridge 21st Century, Wilfred Stark, was arrested after manhandling the female campaign manager for Nevada GOP gubernatorial nominee Adam Laxalt.
Kristin Davison and other officials for the Nevada attorney general’s campaign said the “battery” left her “terrified and traumatized” — and with bruises on her neck and arms.
“Politics is a little bit aggressive these days, but this is just insane. I’ve never seen anything like it,” Davison, 31, told Fox News on Wednesday…
“He grabbed my right arm, my leg was lodged between the door and the wall. He twisted my arm, and contorted it behind my back,” she explained. “I was scared. Every time I tried pulling away, he would grab tighter, and pull me closer into him.”
Davison said Stark pulled her head into his chest, bruising her neck, and held her there for several minutes. She said it “felt like an hour.”
“I was scared and screaming ‘stop—you’re hurting me,’” she explained.
Davison said Stark warned Laxalt, saying, “Adam, there’s only one way you can make this stop.”
There are photos at the link showing some bruises on Davison’s arm. It’s also worth pointing out that Stark is significantly larger than she is. You can get an idea from the comparison photo below:

Stark was arrested Tuesday night and remains in the Las Vegas city jail. But that’s not the only story of assault circulating today. Minnesota House candidate Shane Mekeland says he was punched by a large man during an event at a local restaurant. From the Star Tribune:
Shane Mekeland…said that last Friday night, he was “blindsided” by an assailant as he spoke to patrons at a bar and restaurant he wouldn’t identify…
Mekeland said Monday that law enforcement told him the suspect admitted to attacking Mekeland unprovoked and said authorities were awaiting medical reports and surveillance footage.
Mekeland said he decided to go public about the attack to try to urge a return to “civil discourse.”
“Stay calm, be civil, it’s OK,” Mekeland said Monday. “My parents were on the opposite side for their entire marriage and it was 53 years. I grew up in it; they never fought over it.”
On his Facebook page, however, Mekeland pointed to “the media and the likes of Maxine Waters, Hillary, and Eric Holder” as Democrats being responsible for “driving this behavior.”
Meanwhile, Minnesota State Representative Sarah Anderson, also a Republican, was attacked over the weekend by a self-described anarchist after she asked him to stop kicking her campaign signs. From WCCO:
As the election gets closer this will escalate out of 300 million you are bound to get a few crazies who dont think their vote is enough. Stark is a 2 time loser and needs to do significant time, as attacks are increasing in violence.
Liberals continue to deny their own violence. I wonder if they are simply that stupid or do they appreciate the value of political violence.
Voting in November will either be to reward and support the use of violence to make a political point or to denounce it. Vote Republican.
Isn’t it time for you to start recycling your bogus stories about Black Panthers Attacking Voters in Philly Voting Place? That was a big hit, though I don’t recall actually seeing any evidence of the attack part.
That was threats and intimidation. Hmm… that was so “bogus” that they were found guilty and Holder dismissed the case. It was so “bogus” it was on video.
You need to wait several decades to try to rewrite the corrupt liberal history.
No doubt you’ll post a link to the video of the scary black men. Maybe then I could post one of a white yahoo openly carrying a firearm outside a polling place—which was apparently just fine.
Of course, nothing to worry about with these guys.
When voting in 2008, I saw a fat, doughy mama’s boy INSIDE the polling place wearing an Obama shirt, a clear violation of the rules of the poling place, the ONLY time I have ever seen such a thing.
Note that the man with the gun is AFTER all the clear demonstrations of left wing violence and intimidation. In Texas, concealed carry is prohibited INSIDE the polling station and I don’t know what the rules are in Virginia, but obviously you feel two guys standing outside the door with CLUBS is OK while legally carrying a licensed weapon where a licensed weapon can be legally carried (after the floodgates of violence have been opened up by liberals) is wrong.
Depending on what state laws are, are you too stupid to understand that the “white” guy wearing a side arm could have a) been law enforcement/independent security or b) outside a 100 foot limit to a polling location? Of course, the far left leaning PuffingtonPost would never admit that could have been the case since their only objective was to show a “scary white guy with a gun.”
