TWO Women Have Now Accused Sherrod Brown of Pushing Them Against A Wall

Published

on

Ohio Democratic senator Sherrod Brown reportedly stands accused of making an “unwanted advance” against a woman, according to a statement from a lawyer representing the woman. The advance allegedly occurred in the 1980’s.

This scandal, paired with the domestic abuse allegation that Brown’s ex-wife made, puts the Ohio incumbent in a tough position with voters ahead of November’s election. The claims are highlighted by one important detail: both the new accuser and Brown’s ex-wife accuse the senator of pushing them against a wall.

Cincinnati.com reports:

Late Thursday night, an attorney released a statement on behalf of one of the women.

In the statement, Canton, Ohio area attorney Laura Mills described a sexual encounter her client had with Brown in the late 1980s. Brown was Ohio’s Secretary of State at the time and the unnamed woman had met Brown in the course of her work.

According to Mills, Brown pushed her client up against a wall.

“She described an unexpected, uninvited, unwanted, and sudden advance, roughly pushing her up against a wall,” Mills said in the statement. “It did stop after she expressed dismay and very firmly pulled away, explaining that was not her style nor why she was there. He then said he remembered what she had on the day they had met some time earlier and that he had been attracted to her.” ..

“Court documents show that Brown was accused of assaulting his ex-wife Larke Ummel Brown and acting cruelly toward her and the couple’s two small children.

Larke Brown lobbed damaging accusations against Sherrod, then the Ohio Secretary of State, in her 1986 complaint for divorce:

“Plaintiff further states that Defendant has been guilty of gross neglect of duty and extreme cruelty toward her, by reason of which Plaintiff is entitled to an absolute divorce.”

“I am also intimidated by the Defendant and am in fear for the safety and well-being of myself and our children due to the Defendant’s physical violence and abusive nature,” Larke Brown wrote in her affidavit requesting a restraining order, dated May 12, 1986.

A judge in the Court of Common Pleas of Franklin County, Ohio, granted Larke Brown a restraining order from the future senator, according to a document dated May 12, 1986.

Sherrod Brown disputed his wife’s claims, saying in his counterclaim for divorce, dated June 10, 1986, that he “has never been abusive or violent with Wife or anyone else.”

The seven-count restraining order barred Sherrod Brown from harassing Larke in person or over the phone, selling or disposing of the couple’s assets, changing beneficiaries or cashing out life insurance policies on Larke or their children, and from “coming in or around the Plaintiff’s residence … except for purposes of visitation with the parties’ minor children.”

Larke claimed that Brown violated the restraining order when he visited her residence to pick up their children, according to an October 1986 affidavit:

“[Brown] refused to return to the car, pushed me up against the wall with his arms in order to pass and entered the house. He refused to leave and began to say insulting, derogatory things about me, my mothering of the children and my character in front of my friends and the children … [Brown] then cornered one of my friends … and again started on his tirade of character assassination. … [I] felt physically threatened because of [Brown’s] combative tone and his assault on [me] at the entrance to the house.”

Larke’s affidavit continues:

“He has struck and bullied me on several different occasions, he has completely destroyed my peace of mind and I am extremely intimidated by him … [Brown] has embarked on a course of conduct designed to destroy the children’s peace of mind by making slanderous and defamatory remarks about [me] to them, as well as insisting that they repeat untruthful things that [Brown] had coached them to state.”

The restraining order was dropped in January 1987 when the two parties agreed to settle the divorce, according to court documents.”
