Local Connecticut Republican Christopher von Keyserling has been arrested after he grabbed a female in the groin and then declared it was okay because… Donald Trump!
The Wesport Daily Voice reports that he was charged with fourth-degree sexual assault and was released on $2,500 bond. He’s due to appear in court on January 25.
In December of 2016, Keyserling engaged in a “political argument” with a woman and allegedly declared, “I love this new world. I no longer have to be politically correct.” The female turned to walk away when he reached around and placed his hand between her legs, groping her genital area.
From the Daily Voice:
She told him that if he was “proud of that I can’t help you,” after which he called her a lazy, bloodsucking union employee, the warrant said.
She uttered “(expletive deleted) you” and walked into her office, the warrant said. She said he followed her into the office and said he wanted to talk with her co-worker, the warrant said.
When that co-worker walked in, she said she didn’t have time to speak with him and left the office, the warrant said. The 57-year-old woman decided to leave with her co-worker because she didn’t want to be alone with him, the warrant said.
The female worker said he claimed, “It would be your word against mine and nobody will believe you.” She also claimed he had an “evil look” in his eyes when verbally assaulting her.
“In almost 30 years of practicing law in this town, I would say Mr. von Keyserling is the one person I would never suspect of having any inappropriate sexual predilections,” lawyer Phil Russell told the Greenwich Time. “There was a playful gesture, in front of witnesses. It was too trivial to be considered anything of significance. To call it a sexual assault is not based in reality.”
Well if it was just for funsies… It must be alright then.
Welcome to the Red State…
