CA: Elder’s former fiancee files police report alleging domestic abuse

Source: Politico

“Alexandra Datig, the former fiancee and longtime radio producer for talk show host Larry Elder, said she has filed a formal police report with the Los Angeles Police Department alleging that she was subject to ‘several incidents of domestic abuse’ while living with the GOP gubernatorial recall candidate. … POLITICO first reported last week that Datig said she broke off an 18-month engagement with Elder after he pulled a loaded gun from a nightstand during an argument in 2015. She said that out of fear and intimidation, she didn’t file a police report at the time, but that she decided to make a formal report after hearing some of Elder’s public statements denying the gun incident and suggesting she fabricated the account. His denials, she told police, have resulted in her receiving hostile threats on social media. … Elder’s campaign did not respond immediately to requests for comment.” (08/26/21)
