Democrat Florida Senate Candidate Val Demings Assaults Video Tracker, Sends Him to Hospital

Imagine the headlines if Marco Rubio’s security assaulted a Democrat video tracker…

Security for Democrat Florida Senate candidate Val Demings assaulted a video tracker at an event on August 6.

The video of the assault was obtained by Florida Politics and released Monday evening.

The man who was assaulted was sent to the hospital.

The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the assault.

In the second part of the video, Demings’ security guard tells the video tracker: “In corrections, I used to bounce people like you off their head in the jail.”

“Except for I don’t do bad things. I’m not one of those people. I’m just doing my job. That’s it. I’ve been good to you guys,” the video tracker said.

Florida Politics reported:

Brevard County law enforcement are investigating whether Democratic Senate candidate Val Demings’ security wrongly pushed a man to the ground. Video obtained by Florida Politics shows two individuals pushing the man on Aug. 6 at a meet-and-greet event in Mims. Demings met with supporters at Harry T. & Harriette V. Moore Memorial Park, a public setting, but security blocked the individual from entering.

Based on dialogue captured on the video, the individual appeared to be a video tracker who regularly follows the campaign. One clip shows two security guards, one of whom shouts “Don’t do it,” before the man is pushed down to the ground on the street. Another security staffer then says, “You can’t get up. Stay down.”

“What are you doing?” the man pushed to the ground asks. Clearly surprised, he uses an expletive as he again questions why guards are taking such action.

Demings officials stood by the security team’s handling of the campaign tracker.
