White House official with Maine ties resigns amidst abuse allegations

WASHINGTON D.C. - A White House official with Maine ties has resigned amidst allegations of abuse.

According to the Washington Post, David Sorenson, a speechwriter in the Trump White House, resigned Friday after his ex-wife accused him of numerous accounts of abuse.

Sorenson, a Republican, was a spokesperson for the Maine House GOP and a spokesperson for the Department of Health and Human Services.

Sorenson also served as a senior advisor to Governor LePage.

According to the Washington Post, Sorenson denies the allegations.
