Earlier this week, Democrat Florida gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist's campaign manager resigned.
At the time, Austin Durrer cited family matters as his reasons for leaving the campaign.
It turns out he was arrested for second-degree assault charges.
These charges are related to a domestic violence case.
Trying to Hide It
When Crist's office announced the departure, it stated that a sudden family matter had arisen.
The campaign never said a word about domestic abuse charges.
Durrer has been ordered to surrender his firearms and leave home.
We are making an assumption here, but it looks like he was beating his wife.
Durrer has been working for Crist since 2016...

At the time of his hiring, Crist stated, "Austin brings a wealth of experience, knowledge and a strong, steady hand to this important position.
"He's an impact player who will build our team in Washington with a laser-like focus on serving the people of Pinellas County."
