There are texts seeming to back up the accuser’s story, so there’s a chance his lawsuit might be successful. Via Mediaite:

A Republican staffer who worked on Herschel Walker’s Senate campaign is suing Matt Schlapp for $9.4 million for alleged defamation. The plaintiff, whose identity has been withheld, accused the American Conservative Union chairman of groping him two weeks ago. He claimed Schlapp, who is married to conservative commentator Mercedes Schlapp, grabbed his crotch while the pair were driving in October of last year.


Per the New York Times:

The lawsuit also accuses Mr. Schlapp and his wife, Mercedes Schlapp, who served as Mr. Trump’s White House director of strategic communications, of defamation and conspiracy, claiming that they coordinated a campaign to discredit the Walker aide and his allegations.

Timothy Hyland, a lawyer for the accuser, said in a statement that the lawsuit, which asks for at least $9.4 million in damages, had been filed in part because Mr. Schlapp had not apologized for “his despicable actions.”

Two weeks ago, the staffer told the DailyBeast: “Matt Schlapp of the CPAC grabbed my junk and pummeled it at length, and I’m sitting there thinking what the hell is going on, that this person is literally doing this to me…I’m supposed to pick this motherfucker up in the morning and just pretend like nothing happened. This is what I’m dealing with.”
