Female Trump Volunteer Brutally Beaten in ‘Politically Motivated’ Attack

DEVELOPING STORY: A volunteer for the Trump campaign headquarters in Limestone County, Alabama was brutally attacked Saturday afternoon while she was leaving the premises.

The Alabama Republican Party identified the victim as Tara Johnson.

AL.com reports Johnson was in her vehicle when the attacker “grabbed her by the hair, repeatedly punched her in the face and slammed her head against the door of her truck.”

“The attack on Tara Johnson is a disgraceful act of violence that has no place in our society. Having served alongside Tara on the Limestone County Executive Committee for many years, this is very personal to me,” said Alabama GOP Chairman John Wahl. “Tara is not just a volunteer; she is a kind and generous person who is always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. We are heartbroken and outraged by this senseless act of violence against her.”

“The Athens Police Department is currently investigating the assault, and we urge anyone with information to come forward and assist in bringing the perpetrators to justice,’’ Wahl said. “Violence has no place in our political discourse, and those responsible should be held accountable for their actions.”


Wahl urged Democrats to engage in civility and respect on the campaign trail.

“I call on the Democratic Party and mainstream media to cease their inflammatory rhetoric, which incites individuals against Donald Trump and his supporters,” he said. “The relentless demonization and vilification of political opponents only serves to sow division and discord within our society. We can and should do better.”

That request did not set well with Democrats.

“The response from ALGOP [Chairman] [John] Wahl is more than a bit rich considering his party’s slavish devotion to a man that does nothing but inflame, insult, and led the more harebrained of his followers to assault our nation’s capital on January 6, 2021,” Alabama Democrat Party spokeswoman Sheena Gamble told AL.com.

Television station WHNT reports that police are calling the incident a case of road rage and are still investigating.
