“Rich Beeson, the CM for Rubio, punched me in the face tonight on Mackinac Island,” Paul adviser John Yob Tweeted at 3:13 a.m. ET on Friday. “The Michigan State Police are looking for him.”
“I am hereby calling on Marco Rubio to fire Rich Beeson immediately,” Yob added on Friday morning.
For now, Rubio’s campaign is standing by Beeson. Spokesman Alex Conant hasn’t responded to a request for comment…
Yob told Breitbart News he’s unsure if police in Michigan have found Beeson yet or not, but as of 4 a.m. they had not yet tracked him down.
Rubio’s campaign remains silent on the allegations, which Breitbart News has confirmed were forwarded to a prosecutor for review.
“We are handling it. A complaint was filed. It has been forwarded to the Mackinac County prosecutor for review. We are not currently seeking Mr. Beeson,” Mackinac Island Police Chief Brett Riccinto tells Breitbart News.
