David Mueller, the DJ who was found guilty last year of groping Taylor Swift at a 2013 meet & greet, has found a new job in radio.
He joins country station WMYQ in Moorhead, Mississippi under the pseudonym "Stonewall Jackson" -- the name of a confederate general.

imagine giving a job to the man who groped taylor swift because you "believe his side" and then he takes on a confederate general's name as his DJ moniker https://t.co/SVPuq2sFLi pic.twitter.com/UWjdsRHiSm— #BrittanySpanos (@ohheybrittany) January 30, 2018
The New York Daily News reports that Mueller’s new employer, Delta Radio CEO Larry Fuss, believes he is innocent.
"I sat down with him face-to-face in Minneapolis before I offered him the job and talked to him about it. He's either the world's best liar, or he's telling the truth. I tend to believe his version of the story and most people who have talked to him face-to-face do believe his version of the story."
[Funny that Fuss says this AFTER a jury found Mueller guilty, having already heard his side of the story in person in court.]
And yet another example of a man in power, a radio executive, who chooses to believe a man over a woman even after a jury of his peers found him guilty of sexual assault. Do not accept this offensive behavior, America. #timesup on sweeping sexual assault under the rug. https://t.co/fFWJ3nTepQ— Another CA Girl (@anotherCAgirl) January 30, 2018
I just got off the phone with Mueller's new radio station and they said he claimed he'd take a lie detector test on Entertainment tonight just to prove his innocent. John on the phone told me "pictures can lie" and that was the moment I snapped— Rachel (@holdontoswift) January 30, 2018
Litigation began when Mueller attempted to sue Taylor Swift, alleging that he lost his KYGO station job after her team informed his boss of the groping incident. Swift then counter-sued, the case was taken to trial, and Swift won $1 in damages as a political statement.
I don't even have the words to adequately describe my disappointment.
How do you feel?
To anyone who chose to ignore our reporting on how the country industry turns a blind eye to harassment and misconduct in country radio, here is more evidence. Shame on this station. https://t.co/zWQGl1NPaZ— Marissa R. Moss (@MarissaRMoss) January 30, 2018
The fact that the man who was found guilty of sexually assaulting Taylor Swift is getting another job in radio where he can continue to abuse his power shows there's a problem #TimesUp— Shelby♡ (@Shelby_Royals) January 30, 2018
If people won’t believe Taylor Swift after a man was PROVEN guilty of sexual assault, what hope do i have? What hope does the girl next to me have, my children, their friends, my grandchildren?— Carly Heading (@carlyylalaa) January 30, 2018
People had the choice to move forward with history and instead they did the opposite.
This is an outrage! Also he was CONVICTED and found GUILTY! https://t.co/lIpRdS3lUe— Taylor Swift News (@TSwiftNZ) January 30, 2018

The man accused of groping Taylor Swift is working at a new station in Mississippi under the name "Stonewall Jackson."— New York Daily News (@NYDailyNews) January 30, 2018
The station received a surge of backlash, but the CEO brushed it off as complaints from Swift's fans who "need to get over it." https://t.co/D9h2CqV2zO pic.twitter.com/wgcGzakDMc
