READ: The Full Lawsuit Filed Against CPAC’s Matt Schlapp Alleging ‘Sexual Battery’.

Schlapp's lawyers deny any wrongdoing, instead alleging a "concerted effort" against him.


A lawsuit filed in the Commonwealth of Virginia alleges that American Conservative Union and Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) chief Matt Schlapp committed sexual battery during a campaign tour in Georgia in October. The National Pulse has obtained a full version of the lawsuit filed on January 17th, which also alleges that Schlapp’s wife Mercedes engaged in defamatory activities in order to undermine the accuser’s claims.

The accuser’s identity remains anonymous in the documents, referred to only as “John Doe,” though Washington D.C. reporters including at The National Pulse are aware of the identity of the alleged victim. Outlets including this one are choosing not to publish that information as per the specific requests made in the lawsuit, attached in full below.

Mr. Schlapp’s lawyers issued a statement today, claiming: “This anonymous complaint demonstrates the accuser’s real agenda, working in concert with Daily Beast to attack and harm the Schlapp family. The complaint is false, and the Schlapp family is suffering unbearable pain and stress due to the false allegation from an anonymous individual. No family should ever go through this, and the Schlapps and their legal team are assessing counter-lawsuit options.”

The National Pulse can reveal, however, that the accusation was relatively well known in Washington, D.C. way prior to publication by the Daily Beastand there appears to be no evidence that the Daily Beast “worked in concert” with the accuser on an “agenda.”

Read the lawsuit, from which The National Pulse has redacted the Schlapp’s address, for their privacy, below:

In 2022 The National Pulse exclusively revealed how Schlapp had accepted six figures from a far-left fund backed by globalist donors including George Soros. It is still unclear if the money was ever returned. Soon after, one of his own conference speakers blew the whistle on his treatment of pro life groups and pro life issues, alleging: “Oddly, this year, not a single speaker or session [at CPAC] focused on abortion. Not one on the threat to women’s sports. Not one on religious liberty. Not one on family, marriage, sex trafficking, pornography, etc.”
