Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump’s former campaign manager who has an alleged habit of drunk-dialing female reporters, has been accused of unwanted touching, Politico reports.
Joy Villa, a singer who gained popularity when she wore a “Make America Great Again” dress to the Grammy Awards, says Lewandowski slapped her butt not once, but twice, at a recent invite-only holiday party.
The incident reportedly occurred at Trump International Hotel in D.C., w Villa says her friend introduced her to Lewandowski in the ballroom.
According to the report, Villa was pushed into posing for a photo with him, which is when Lewandowski allegedly touched the singer without her consent.
“It was completely demeaning and shocking.” Friday night, Villa tweeted a link to the Politico story with a photo of the two at the holiday party, immediately before Lewandowski allegedly touched her.
He reportedly responded, “Go ahead, I work in the private sector.” This isn’t the first time Lewandowski has faced such an accusation.
In March 2016, Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields accused him of violently grabbing her arm at a campaign event, and Lewandowski was charged with simple battery.
