Source: Palm Beach Post

JUPITER — Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump campaign manager, was charged this morning with misdemeanor battery after allegations of forcefully grabbing a reporter at a Jupiter news conference, town police confirmed this morning.

Following a March 8 conference at Trump National Golf Club, Michelle Fields, a 28-year-old reporter formerly with the online Breitbart News Network, said she was grabbed on the arm by Lewandowski, 41, after she asked Trump a question about affirmative action.

Washington Post reporter Ben Terris wrote that he witnessed the battery.

Jupiter police later said they were looking into the incident after Fields filed a report, although investigators had not named Lewandowski.

Thank you for the Changes on DU.

Because of the changes, specifically not having GD(P), the HRC group and BS group on the front page, I have had a wonderful chance to see posts in others groups that I would normally not visit.

Trending Now and Greatest Threads links on the home page are so much nicer to read and learn from.

Thank you for letting the rest of DU having a chance to shine.

Sarah Palin cancelled a Donald Trump campaign event Monday in Florida after her husband Todd Palin was hospitalized following a serious accident. "The event scheduled for Governor Sarah Palin to take place today in The Villages, Florida at 12:00 PM, has been cancelled," the Trump camp's statement read. "Governor Palin wishes her best to Mr. Trump in the upcoming primaries." NBC News reported shortly thereafter: "Todd Palin was in a very serious snow machine crash last night, currently hospitalized in intensive care." Palin made an impromptu appearance Sunday at the Florida Strawberry Festival, briefly speaking to the press but making no public speech about her preferred candidate.
