A newly formed political action committee backed by anti-Trump lawyer Michael Avenatti, charged last week with domestic violence, is organizing for Senate Democratic candidate Mike Espy.
Their fundraising and organizing effort comes while the lawyer is facing domestic abuse charges involving an actress.
Since the charges were filed, some Democratic groups have cut ties to Avenatti. The Vermont Democratic Party, for example, cancelled events featuring Avenatti and refunded ticket sales.
