Breaking: A Second White House Aide Has Now Resigned After Domestic Abuse Allegations

Wow. This is, uh, becoming quite a trend with the Trump administration: A second White House aide has resigned amid past domestic abuse allegations.

The abrupt departure of speechwriter David Sorensen comes after his former wife claimed that he was violent and emotionally abusive during their turbulent two-and-a-half-year marriage — allegations that he vehemently denied. Rather, Sorensen said he was the victim of domestic violence in their marriage.

[...]

[Ex-wife Jessica] Corbett first contacted The Post a week before Porter’s case became public. She said that during her marriage to Sorensen, he ran a car over her foot, put out a cigarette on her hand, threw her into a wall and grasped her menacingly by her hair while they were alone on their boat in remote waters off Maine’s coast, an incident she said left her fearing for her life.

Before going to work for the Trump-thing, Sorensen was an adviser on health care to Maine's infamous far right GOP Governor Paul LePage.
