CPAC chiefs call Daily Beast “Satan” over groping allegations


CPAC power couple Matt and Mercedes Schlapp are apparently struggling with the allegations made by Matt Schlapp unwanted and inappropriate advances towards other men.

That’s how natural they are blames The Daily Beastthe outlet spreading the message of doing Satan’s work.

Earlier this year, Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union, which hosts the influential Conservative Political Action Conference, was sued by a former campaign aide for Georgia Senate nominee Herschel Walker over allegations that Schlapp groped the aide without permission.

Although Schlapp has denied the claims The Daily Beast reported on Monday that he tried to come to an agreement with the man earlier this year, which the Schlapps also denied.

The Daily Beast also took note of the denial Washington Post reporting that Schlapp was faced with new allegations, including a CPAC worker who accused Matt Schlapp of attempting to kiss him while he was drinking late after a work event in 2017.

The other alleged incident occurred in early 2022, according to Post sources, who said Schlapp made unwelcome physical advances towards another person’s co-worker during a CPAC business trip in Palm Beach, Fla.

The Daily Beast said Monday it had independently confirmed its existence two new allegations from several people, including the former CPAC employee who made the allegation in 2017.

The Schlapps have denied all allegations – and apparently didn’t credit The Daily Beast for reporting them. Nor did they realize who they believed to be the real force behind this sordid story: Satan himself.

Mercedes Schlapp, senior fellow of the CPAC Foundation and wife of Matt Schlapp, called the website “Satan’s publication for the persecution of Christians and their families,” while Matt Schlapp added, “There’s a weekend edition coming out soon: the Saturday Satan.”

HuffPost attempted to contact Satan to find out if the fallen angel was in any way connected to The Daily Beast, but didn’t get an immediate response.

But many people on X, the site formerly known as Twitter, had thoughts, including a Daily Beast staffer who jokingly claimed Mercedes Schlapp was onto something. “That’s unfortunately true,” wrote reporter Will Sommer.
