A Former Donald Trump campaign leader and Republican activist from Mississippi has been arrested and charged with disturbing the peace and domestic violence, after she got all boozed up and started swinging around an axe in the garage of a home in the town of Nesbit.
Heather Leigh Fox was arrested by Sheriff Deputies at about 2 a.m. According to the cops, she was “agitated” and she reeked of alcohol at the time of the arrest. Fox’s drunk viking impressions were also recorded on video by the person who called the cops on her.
The story is one that has played out so many times this year. Fox is … or at least was … a member of the DeSoto County Republican Party Executive Committee as well as the state party’s executive committee. She also self-identified on her own personal website as the North Mississippi director of Trump’s campaign.
When the Trump campaign was contacted regarding their wayward helper, they denied that she was currently anything in relation to them, and that she hadn’t worked for the campaign since March.
The details of the police report show even more hilarious stupidity, which Trump supporters truly have in inexhaustible supply. Fox was “irate” because another person, who has not been identified, was at the residence. Fox had believed this other person had damaged Fox’s vehicle and stolen a swim suit in the past.
It seems from the report that this may have been something of a spurned lover issue, or crazy ex-girlfriend thing. The homeowner’s recorded video that he made showed Fox screaming and cursing, and telling the homeowner to make the other person who was there leave the house. The report also says that Fox told the homeowner their relationship “was over” if the other person didn’t leave.
This is such a typical thing for conservatives. They’re so good, moral and Christian, but then they get drunk and end up doing things like using an axe to threaten what seems to be an ex-boyfriend. It’s absolutely remarkable that there was no gunplay involved in this. Not so much from the cops, being as Fox is white, but from the homeowner or Fox herself. Blind luck and a bit of white privilege were what kept this a mildly amusing story instead of another gun violence statistic in America.
