Video shows Val Demings’ security pushing man to ground outside event

Val Demings
The Brevard County Sheriff's Office is investigating.

Brevard County law enforcement is investigating whether Democratic Senate candidate Val Demings’ security wrongly pushed a man to the ground.

Video obtained by Florida Politics shows two individuals pushing the man on Aug. 6 at a meet-and-greet event in Mims. Demings met with supporters at Harry T. & Harriette V. Moore Memorial Park, a public setting, but security blocked the individual from entering.

Based on dialogue captured on the video, the individual appeared to be a video tracker who regularly follows the campaign. A clip shows two security guards, one of whom shouts “Don’t do it,” before the man is pushed down to the ground on the street. Another security staffer then says, “You can’t get up. Stay down.”

“What are you doing?” the man pushed to the ground asks. Clearly surprised, he uses an expletive as he again questions why guards are taking such action.

Demings officials stood by the security team’s handling of the campaign tracker.

“Security officials take potential threats and threatening behavior toward the Chief seriously,” said Christian Slater, communications director for Demings’ campaign. “In this instance the individual did not respond to multiple requests to leave and charged at security personnel in pursuit of Chief Demings’ approaching vehicle.”

But Republicans were quick to criticize Demings’ campaign over the situation. Demings, a Democratic Congresswoman, is running for Senate against Republican incumbent U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio.

“Every media outlet in America would have covered this if I had bodyguards like Pelosi puppet Val Demings does and they assaulted someone for trying to film me,” Rubio tweeted.

Other national Republicans also criticized the situatiion.

“It’s easy for Democrats like Val Demings to call defunding the police ‘very thoughtful’ and violent riots ‘a beautiful sight’ when she has her own private security to back her up,” said Julia Friedland, spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee.

The guards shown look to be employees of Ardent Protection, a company hired by Demings’ campaign. The security personnel pushing the man to the ground appears to be Constantino Georgudis, an executive protection officer for Ardent Protection, and Wayne Bacon, vice president of the company.

Demings’ Senate campaign has paid the Sunrise firm $17,458 since May to provide security services, according to Federal Election Commission filings. Most recently, $963 was paid to the firm on July 26, about a week before the event in question.

A second video clip, this one shot without a direct view of the security team for most of it, appears to capture the man who was tackled to the ground conversing with the guards. One security guard said he has 40 years of work in security, 23 of those with Homeland Security. That’s a résumé that lines up approximately with what’s on Bacon’s LinkedIn page. The security employee also said he was a Lieutenant at one point with the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.

The following exchange was captured on the video.

Ardent Security: “In corrections I used to bounce people like you off their head in the jail.”

Pushed man: “Except for I don’t do bad things. I’m not one of those people. I’m just doing my job. That’s it. I’ve been good to you guys.”

Ardent: “Don’t touch me. Oh my god.”

Man: “I’ve been so good, and y’all are just being ridiculous sometimes. I just want to be even keel.”

Ardent: “Let’s be even keel right now. So don’t take it personal, alright.”

Man: “No I’m not. Everything that just happened, we’re good.”

Ardent: “Moving forward don’t take it personal.”

Man: “Take what personal?”

Ardent: “What’s going to happen to you.”

The man ended up going to a hospital. He was treated for relatively minor scrapes and bruises.

Officials with the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the incident was being investigated.

Florida Politics has reached out to Ardent Protection for comment.

            “Those that live by the sword shall die by the sword.” Is that what you’re saying? You seem to be fine with the idea of conservatives being physically harmed by Leftist security brigades or contractors.

            I suppose it’s only natural to take surreptitious joy while watching your enemies suffer.

            But I can’t help but wonder how loudly you are going to cry FOUL when some group of Leftist rioters decides to create their mayhem in the wrong county? I’m not calling for it, but I fully expect that it’s going to happen, even if by ‘accident’. There will be a pushback that will curl your eyebrows. I can picture literally dozens of not hundreds of Leftist rioters dead in their tracks after trying to set fire to buildings, homes & churches. And the footage will clearly show which side drew first blood.

            Will you be so bold as to defend those that express their joy at the sight of dead leftist rioters? I know I’ll be cheering.

            He seems to have forgotten about the armed Black Panthers standing outside the polling places back in ’08 and Democrats saying *NOTHING* to condemn it.

            But right here in two sentences he escalated from getting their asses kicked & their names taken, to preemptively shooting those that disagree.

            But those of us with a calm demeanor understand that those like Joe are just full of hot air. But those like Joe do not understand that should they turn that hot air into actions, they will be wiped out in a swift & final retaliatory action.

        Wrong. You must be newly indoctrinated from the leftist professoriat. They have redefined political terms because after WWII they knew they could not sell socialism after the National Socialist Workers Party, NAZI, party was soundly rejected and defeated.
        I understand people being gullible, but just do a little research of the era near the start of our entry into WWII. You will see the same commies as today promoting their fellow traveler, Hitler, his National Socialism, and if your cognitive dissonance is not too great, you can continue on to read the NAZI party platform. You will be shocked to learn:
        A. Who the NAZIs are today
        B. Socialism, fascism, and communism are 3 degrees of the same goal, government control, and
        C. You have been lied to about this.

        You see the spectrum is, total dicatorship on the left, total anarchy on the right, us all in the middle of that, with communism, socialism, then fascism coming from left, democracy, republicanism, then anarchy is on the right.
        It is the same as how commies now consider themselves liberals by redefining the common use of the term.

    No John, Communists are the not the same as fascists.

    Communism is political and economic and law policy. They can be peaceful or violent.

    Fascism is the violent actions of the communists or socialists (ends justify the means) protecting and enforcing their ideologies and political, economic, and law policies. Fascists are always violent.

    And no Joe, Socialism and Communism are NOT far right. That is the newest re-education BS. 100% false.

    Communism is a Jewish Ideology, straight up Jewish. Born and raised. And that is not an anti-Semitic statement. It is a statement of fact protected by the 1st amendment, something we used to have before shithead webmasters/obama voters decided they are in control of speech. Fascists. All of them.

    FYI, Jews (formerly referred to as Pharisees) have been exiled from every place they have ever lived throughout history. Some have exiled Jews, then allowed them back in only to ban them again. Only time in history Jews were not exiled is modern America.

    And it is not all Jews, folks. This is not a war against a religion or a people. It is an ideology. If a Jew is nice to you, that usually means they are not hateful radicals, just normal people. Communists Jews attack you immediately over anything or everything. It could be you sneezed wrong. You’ll know a good Jew from a bad one by the way they treat you. Don’t be prejudice people. Be smart.

    This current Democratic Party is occupied by National Socialists, the same people as Nazi’s.

    I challenge anyone to go out in the world and when they hear the word “republican”, replace it with “Jew”. Sound familiar?

    A Hollywood writer once told me in a meeting that “all republicans should be beheaded”. Replace that word with Jew and try it out. That should convince anyone still asleep.

    Listen closely and you may realize you are actually reliving Nazi Germany. The hatred and genocidal rhetoric aimed at Republicans stems from these National Socialist views pushing for complete control. Add Saul Alinksy and you have the recipe for Barack Obama.

    Many say these Democrats are Marxists in the Democratic Party, but Michael Savage nailed it when he claimed… “these are not Marxists. These are Maoists.”

    Marxism takes from the rich and gives to the poor (farmers). In the end, they executed all the farmers.

    Maoism kills anyone not in the camp or the club, and they take all your shit. End of story. If Mao don’t like you, you die. Millions were killed under that guy and many in the Democratic Party today worship Mao.

    If you are not in the know, you are not in the club. You are a useful idiot. Look it up –> “useful idiot”. A dark future always awaits the useful idiot.

    Trump won in 2020. The communists performed a well executed coup. And unfortunately, USA cannot be saved at this point. The people are too stupid and complacent and the communists have us in a checkmate situation.

      Can’t spew far right nonsense and stand up for such a crook as Donald Trump and then call yourself sane. How can one have a conversation with this type of degraded mind in the mix? Let’s have a conversation about that first. How is right wing nonsense productive for the nation…

      I only came back to Florida Politics about two or three weeks ago. I was trolled by Corsin almost immediately. I let his first comment slide, but he’s a persistent nuisance.

      I believe this is the first time Effen has attempted to be swatted like the buzzing fly I assume he will reveal himself to be.

    Incest Corsin, idiot Elliot are fake monikers and crazy Alex in hiding.

    Corsin is a soros Manchurian with no real understanding. His inability to substantively address any topic demonstrates his efforts are to distract, deceive and obfuscate. How’s that word? Manchurian nation.

    Dum dum Demings is a thug, she lost her gun like Annie Oakley! Democrats are embarrassing.

    The survey has undercounted the Florida GOP in the university poll. Rubio wins, DeSantis blows out the Dem chameleon or fraud! Nola contendre! Look that one up manchurians.

    Dumings and her goons knock down a guy.
    So classless! Losers! Dum Demings gets knocked down on Election Day!

        University of Florida runs a under populated GOP survey, and America’s Gov kicks chameleon and fraudster to curve! So with independents and Hispanics he’s kicking ass.
        Plus 7and 8 head to head.
        Wait til the 95% GOP factor is weighed, he may top 60% pop vote. Chameleon or fraudster are done!

        Same poll, after 2 previous partisan Org Dem polls which had Dumings barely tied, and one generic one which had Sen Marco up 10. This Univ poll in which undercounts Repub vote has Marco down 4. To be clear, the only way Dumings has any lift is by diluting Rubio strength. Just dishonest! Wait til GOP comes out 95% for Rubio and Hispanics plus 60% for Rubio.

        Biden’s disastrous approval in 30’s is 1000 Pd weight.

            That’s right — try to hide the facts. In the beginning of the pandemic the left was rallying behind Cuomo, using the title “America’s Governor” at the top of every newscast.

            And then the truth came out — Kodos the Executioner — was locking up seniors in nursing homes ensuring that the easily avoidable disease would reach its maximum mortality.

            Have you forgotten that Cuomo resigned in disgrace?

            Ron DeSantis was in office at the time. He reacted swiftly & effectively. The title still exists the Left is just pissed because it’s being held by a Republican and Florida isn’t a ‘fly-over’ state.

    It is funny that DeSantis can routinely exclude press that doesn’t kiss his ass from his campaign events. Republicans are such whiny cry babies. I can’t imagine the massively corrupt Brevard County Sheriff’s Department doing any kind of investigation that isn’t a total hit job.
