The news is out: [Thomas Gilmer, a Republican candidate for Connecticut’s 2nd Congressional District, dropped out of the race after he was arrested by police in Wethersfield on charges of second-degree strangulation and first-degree unlawful restraint.
Gilmer allegedly assaulted his ex-girlfriend a few years ago. The evidence for his assault comes from a 30 seconds video taken by a hidden Nest camera, which shows Gilmer punching the victim in the face, jumping on top of her, kicking her and trying to choke her. The alleged assault reportedly took place back in 2017.]
Only the best and brightest (crooks) run for office. Look who is president.
