An Illinois Democratic congressional candidate has been accused of abusing women and lying about his service in the U.S. military, according to a Wednesday report.
Benjamin Thomas Wolf, who has already had a controversial congressional bid, which has included smoking marijuana on camera and running advertisements on porn sites, has been accused of physically harming his ex-girlfriend and former campaign intern, Katarina Coates, who described six incidents where she was physically abused by Wolf, Politico reported.
“He actually hit me, threw me to the ground, put his foot on my chest. He was really angry. He grabbed my face,” Coates said. “I thought it was normal. I cannot explain the logic. It seemed like he cared about me when he did that. After that time he stood on my chest, he went and took me for chocolate cake. I kind of associated it with his caring. … There were times I would ask him, Do you ever regret hitting me?’ He would say: ‘No, but I’m relieved when you put your head down so I don’t have to do it again.’”
Coates said she did not file a police report and instead had a police report filed against her by Wolf. She also said Wolf “doxxed” her by releasing her name, phone number and home address to the public.
