Newt Gingrich Sued For Assault and Battery
A Florida man (<– always is) Edward Dillard, has filed a lawsuit against Newt Gingrich and his security stating he was man-handled outside the Florida Republican Presidential Primary earlier this week all because he was carrying a sign supporting Ron Paul.
In a lawsuit filed yesterday in U.S. District court in Florida, Edward Dillard he was just out and about when Newt and his wife came strolling up to the polling place. Dillard states he was standing outside of a canopy which had been set up with a microphone stand, when Newt and Callista came right up to him and shook his hand.
Dillard claims Newt then noticed his Ron Paul t-shirt and "immediately turned his back" to him and went on to greet other people. That's when Dillard claims several of Gingrich's security team came up to him and attempted to "intimidate him into moving from the spot."
Dillard who says he was wearing open-toed sandals (like 90% of all Floridian men) says one of the security staff "lifted his heeled shoe over Dillard's right foot and dug the back of it into his skin, twisting it side-to-side like he was stomping out a cigarette, causing a fracture to Dillard's right foot."
After a minor tussle, Dillard claims the guy who stomped his foot shouted to other members of his team, "Everyone step on his toes!"
Dillard is suing Newt, the campaign and the security firm for assault and battery and seeking unspecified damages.
