Brad Parscale, famed for his brilliant handling of President Donald Trump’s digital strategy during the 2016 presidential contest, has officially resigned from the 2020 campaign.
Parscale’s sudden resignation comes on the heels of being detained and hospitalized after a domestic incident at his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Fox News reported that “Parscale had stepped down but did not immediately provide a statement on his departure. Parscale, 44, had served a leading role in the campaign’s digital outreach efforts following his demotion from the campaign manager’s post in July.”
Police officers responded to Parscale’s home on Sunday after his wife called to report that he had barricaded himself inside with multiple firearms and was threatening to harm himself. After a short standoff, Parscale was detained and hospitalized under Florida’s Baker Act, which allows police to detain a subject if they are deemed a threat to themselves or others.
Although other sources have claimed Parscale was under investigation for stealing millions from the re-election campaign coffers, the Trump campaign denied the claim saying it was “pure fiction.”
