Former Wisconsin Republican spokesperson Benjamin Sparks has been accused of making his ex-fiancée a sex slave, according to a report by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The Review-Journal obtained copies of emails, text messages and a signed contract that allegedly lays out the ex-fiancée’s duties as a “slave in training.”

Sparks worked as the Wisconsin spokesman for Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential campaign. He was also the Republican spokesman for the anti-recall campaign for Gov. Scott Walker. 

He evaded Las Vegas Police after a domestic dispute on March 29 in which officers determined there was “probable cause to arrest Sparks for domestic battery.” Charges are pending. 

According to the Review-Journal, Sparks and his ex-fiancée signed a five-page document making her his “slave and property.”  She would be forced to kneel and look down when he was in the room, be nude at all times and have sex with him whenever he wanted it. She also had to wear a collar in private. 

“He was very demanding and did not take no for an answer,” the ex-fiancée told the Review-Journal. “Over the last month it escalated into very rough sex where he’d actually hurt me. He back-handed me … and forced himself on me.”

Sparks allegedly asked the ex-fiancée to have sex with other men in front of him while she was bound and blindfolded, which she said was the breaking point. 

After arguing, the woman tried to leave but claims Sparks would not let her. She said Sparks called 911 and claimed she was trying to commit suicide, and that she battered him. The ex-fiancée denied she was suicidal or that she hit him in her interview with the Review-Journal. 

Sparks left before police arrived. A police report notes that the ex-fiancée refused to give police a voluntary statement and she did not try to call 911 while Sparks allegedly would not let her leave. 

Sparks' ex-fiancée told the Review-Journal that he fled to Texas and left all his belongings behind.

Sparks most recently worked on a campaign for Republican Nevada Congressman Cresent Hardy. He was reportedly fired from the campaign.
