Augustus Invictus, the controversial candidate who lost the Florida US Senate LP nomination to Paul Stanton by a wide margin last year, got elected Chair of the Orange County, Florida (Orlando area) LP, campaigned at white nationalist events and earned condemnation from his state LP leadership for his advocacy of war and eugenics, has now been accused of a long standing pattern of domestic violence, sexual assault, kidnapping and terroristic threats by an ex-girlfriend who lived with him from November 2015 to January 2017.
The following report was forwarded to IPR writers by Warren Redlich. Shannon Patterson from the Edgewood, FL Police Department has confirmed that the report is genuine, adding that “this is an information report only.” The alleged crimes did not take place in the same city as the police report was made, and the complaintant was advised to file a report with the correct jurisdiction as well as to seek a court injunction against Augustus Invictus.
In other recent Invictus news, he was scheduled to appear at the Mid-Atlantic Liberty Festival to debate Will Coley on the issue of immigration. However, the event was cancelled, allegedly after repeated bomb threats by antifascists to every venue that agreed to host the event. Invictus spoke at his own event in Harrisburg, PA, on Saturday, the day of the cancelled event, as far as we know without incident. Prior to the cancellation of the festival, several members of the Libertarian Party Audacious Caucus and Vermin Supreme announced plans to throw a pie at Invictus as he appeared on stage. Invictus replied that anyone who threw a pie at him would wake up in the hospital and face battery charges.
