INDEPENDENT U.S. SENATE CANDIDATE ACCUSED OF ASSAULTING HIS GIRLFRIEND’S HAIRDRESSER
By FITSNEWS || Lowcountry businessman and independent U.S. Senate candidate Thomas Ravenel has been accused of physically assaulting his 23-year-old girlfriend’s hair stylist – and of falling into a pool with his seven-month-old child during a domestic dispute.
According to a police report obtained by The Charleston City Paper, Ravenel physically assaulted Lauren Moser – a hairstylist to his girlfriend, Kathryn Dennis.
Ravenel and Dennis are both stars of Bravo TV’s reality show “Southern Charm,” the second season of which was recently filmed in Charleston, S.C. Ravenel has quit the show on two separate occasions, only to eventually return.
The incident – which occurred on Friday night at Ravenel’s Charlotte Street residence in Charleston – is said to have taken place after Moser was invited by Ravenel and Dennis to their residence.
Moser told police she “was concerned about going because she had had previous run-ins with the offender [whose] behavior is unpredictable especially when under the influence.”
Upon arriving at the home at 11:00 p.m. EDT Moser took over caring for Ravenel’s seven-month-old daughter Kensington Calhoun Ravenel from the baby’s nanny.
When Ravenel and Dennis arrived, “everything was fine for awhile.”
For awhile …
While Moser and Dennis were talking with one another beside the pool outside of the residence, Ravenel allegedly “stormed out of the house with the 7-month-old juvenile and yelled to Kathryn that she needed to take care of the sleeping child.”
This, of course, is the same child who appears in Ravenel’s arms in his latest television advertisement, entitled “Fighting for our Families.”
Anyway … as Ravenel approached Moser and Dennis, he allegedly slipped and fell into the pool with his baby.
Moser began recording the incident on her cell phone at that point because, as she told police, “she felt that more was about to transpire.”
Here’s the section of the report dealing with the alleged abuse she suffered at Ravenel’s hands …
The victim stated that as she was walking behind the offender into the house he swung the door hard (as to close it) when he cleared [the] doorway and it bounced off of the victim’s knee. The victim stated that when the offender saw that the door did not close he turned and swung the door again and this time the door struck the victim on the inside of the right arm due to the fact that her hand was raised because she was videoing the episode. The victim stated that the door hit her so hard it caused her to topple backwards down three steps and into some bushes.
After allegedly assaulting Moser, Ravenel reportedly told her “Bitch, get your stuff and get out.”
Charleston police say their investigation of the incident is ongoing and Ravenel has not yet been arrested. Moser did not report the incident until Monday evening, at which point police said they observed bruising on her body but no “broken bones.”
Well that’s a plus …
This website initially supported Ravenel’s candidacy, but several weeks ago we stopped having anything to do with it (and him) when we began to suspect the whole thing was about reality television ratings, not real world political issues.

More relevant to the current drama, two weeks ago the founding editor of this website was forced to file a police report in response to harassing behavior from Ravenel.
