A Donald Trump backer claims Corey Lewandowski, former Trump campaign manager, “stalked,” touched, and repeatedly made unwanted sexual advances at a charity event held in Las Vegas Benihana this weekend.
Trashelle Odom, wife of the construction company director John Odom, claims in a statement that Lewandowski repeatedly touched her as she sat next to the event to hear, followed her, touched her leg and buttocks and “stalked” her during the event.
According to her statement, Lewandowski repeatedly commented on the size of his genitals, Politics reported. He also “described his sexual achievements and showed Odom his hotel room key.”
She said Lewandowski, whose lawyer labeled the claims as “rumours,” used expletives while talking about sex while approaching her repeatedly.
Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is accused of repeated unwelcome advances on a Trump donor during a charity event in Las Vegas over the weekend. His lawyers replied that ‘accusations and rumors seem to be changing by the minute’
The alleged behavior took place at an event at the Westgate Las Vegas hotel for the Victoria’s Voice Foundation, which focuses on substance abuse. The publication quotes two people as saying that Odom looked uncomfortable and that Lewandowski appeared to be drunk.
One person said they saw Odom in tears at an after party.
“On the evening of September 26 in Las Vegas, Nevada, I attended a charity dinner and spent time with wonderful friends,” she said. “He repeatedly touched me inappropriately, said mean and disgusting things to me, stalked me and made me feel violated and fearful,” she said, referring to Lewandowski.
‘Mrs. Odom stated that Mr. Lewandowski tried to hold her hand during dinner, and she pushed his hand away. He touched her leg and she pushed it away. He took her napkin from her lap and tried to touch her leg again, and she pulled her dress over her leg, to remove his hand and cover her skin,” Odom’s lawyer wrote.

Lewandowski attorneys David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld responded to the allegations with a one-line statement to DailyMail.com. It read: ‘Allegations and rumors seem to be changing by the minute and we won’t dignify them with any further response.’
Lewandowski is married to Allison Lewandowski and has four children.
He was charged with assault for allegedly grabbing a Breitbart reporter during the 2016 campaign, but the charges were dropped.
According to Odom’s statement, “He touched her back and she tried to get away. He described an area where he was sore from a workout, on the side of his butt, but he demonstrated this by touching her there – at the top of her butt. Lewandowski tried to touch her about 10 times, and Mrs. Odom always turned him down.’
