The alleged victim of Matt "The Alleged Molester" Schlapp gave an interview to NBC News last night. You can listen to it by following the link:

Both the staffer and the senior campaign official said the Walker campaign made legal counsel available to the staffer to discuss his legal options and indicated the campaign would support whatever decision he made. He has not pursued legal action against Schlapp, he said.

The staffer said he was speaking to the news media to make others aware of what he described as predatory behavior by Schlapp.

"If he had made a polite pass at me and left it that," the staffer said, "only me, Matt and God would know about that."

The two American Conservative Union (CPAC) board vice-chairs are standing by their man.

"We stand squarely behind Matt Schlapp, and the ACU Board of Directors has full confidence in his leadership of the organization," said Charlie Gerow and Carolyn Meadows, the first and second vice chairs of the board.

"We have both known Matt and his wife, Mercedes, for decades. We know Matt Schlapp's heart and his character. And we believe this latest attempt at character assassination is false," they added. "Unfortunately, the Left and its note takers in the media routinely choose to scorch the earth in their quest to cancel those with whom they disagree. Whether it involves conservative judicial nominees or good people like Matt Schlapp, they will sink to any depth to destroy them and their families."

Ooh! Ooh! This Charlie Gerow? Who came up with one of the more improbable alibis of all time for a possible hit-and-run?

Which would explain why Gerow could praise old Matt with a presumably straight face. He's had practice!
