Lewandowski Harasses Woman, Gets Off with Counseling, Community Service, and No Admission of Wrongdoing

A year minus four days after sexually harassing a Republican donor in front of his good gal pal Kristi Noem, Corey Lewandowski copped a plea to keep a criminal charge off his record.

Politico reports that the State of Nevada filed one charge of misdemeanor battery against the well-known political advisor to Trump, Noem, and other Republicans on September 12, 2022, eleven and a half months after Lewandowski harassed Trashelle Odom at a Las Vegas charity event attended by Kristi Noem. An arrest warrants was issued on September 13. Nine days later, a Nevada court accepted Lewandowski’s plea bargain. The New Hampshire scumbucket admits no wrongdoing. He has to submit to eight hours of counseling on impulse control, perform 50 hours of community service, and stay out of trouble for one year. Upon fulfillment of those conditions, Nevada will dismiss the charge.

The plea bargain is extremely convenient for Governor Noem: had any trial been held, she almost certainly would have been called as a witness to testify to Lewandowski’s criminal behavior. In her statement to police, Trashelle Odom said, “Gov. Noem told me that she had texted Corey to stop touching me.” A prosecutor would surely have wanted Noem to expand on what Odom says Noem witnessed that night, and the last thing Noem wants right now is to have to fly to Las Vegas again, what with her bad back.

The victim of Lewandowski’s latest bad behavior and her husband, John Odom, have not publicly commented on Lewandowski’s latest apparent escape from accountability. But if a man propositioned my wife, grabbed her, followed her around a crowded event, talked about the size of his genitals, bragged about having killed people, and threw his drink at her when she refused his aggression, I’d expect an admission of guilt and some genuine punishment.

    Maybe the so-called man just needs a good old-fashioned ass kickin’!

    You’ve all heard of “alternative facts?” Well, this is “alternative justice,” reserved for Republicans/MAGAts. But we can be comforted by the fact that Amy Barrett assures us that the courts are not stocked with a bunch of “political hacks.” Ahem… (cough…AileenCannon)…

    There have been headlines about Noem’s and Lewandowski’s personal relationship. He was charged with battery of another woman so Kristi told us that she’d let him go. Now, not only is he back “consulting” Noem’s campaign, but doing so in person??

    She is inviting trouble. Her family and her campaign staff have to be shaking their heads.

    For a governor claiming to have such big ol balls, she proved what a liar she is when she failed to flex said balls and speak up to the man abusing women in front of her face. She sent a text!? Asking him to stop touching her. What a punk. I know four-footers who would have spoken up and went and got security and would not have allowed that to have taken place, especially their own advisor getting to violate a woman while Noem looks on. I have no respect for a gender traitor. And she is the worst kind. It is every person’s place to speak out against violence. Especially violence against women. What a low life Kristi Noem is.

  5. Loti 2022-10-02 10:39

    There is probably alot of negative stuff the governor turns a Blind Eye to, but violence against women is awful. Then she wants women to be empowered.
    Cast your votes :)

    Jake- I agree. Sometimes a quick clap upside the cranium is the only way to immediately get the attention of a horn dog. And in this case, maybe the humiliation of getting his butt swept across the floor by a respected grown man would be the best way to correct Lew’s rapey behavior. He obviously knew there was nobody with honor around when he acted out. That woman had to run from him once she realized he wasn’t going to be stopped. Guys like that calculate the time and place they have an opportunity and are ready to take advantage. That is why you will never see him in the company of honor. Just losers and cowards and the occasional unsuspecting damsel. He can smell his victims because he is a predator. I wonder if Noem acts as his Ghislaine Maxwell.?

  7. P. Aitch 2022-10-02 10:57

    Impulse Control? Seems to be a thriving online market for this product. Being an enabler isn’t helpful to women, Governor Noem!

    Lewandowski’s lawyers know that Lewandowski is also subject to a civil suit, which can result in a jury award that includes substantial punitive damages because his behavior, if proven by a preponderance of the evidence, would be classified as a “willful and wanton” intentional tort. An admission of guilt would be conclusive evidence in the civil suit. It is not unusual for a prosecutor and court to avoid a criminal jury trial by permiting a plea agreement with sanctions to resolve a misdemeanor criminal case similar to Lewandowski’s no admission of guilt where a subsequent civil suit is a factor.

    . . . Punitive damages are considered punishment and are typically awarded at the court’s discretion when the defendant’s behavior is found to be especially harmful. . . .

    Punitive Damages in Tort Law

    In the case of tort liability, courts may choose to apply punitive damages. However, they will typically only do so if the plaintiff can prove that the defendant engaged in an intentional tort and/or engaged in wanton and willful misconduct. . . . .

    A sexual assault and battery typically qualifies as “wanton and willful misconduct.” Here is an attorney website explaining what someone might face for actions similar to Lewandowski’s alleged conduct:

    In a Farmington restaurant, a woman alleges that a personal injury attorney groped her and later attempted to convince her to withdraw her police complaint. She has filed a $10 million lawsuit against the attorney. The personal injury attorney is accused of sexual assault and battery. The lawsuit also includes the restaurant owner who is accused of civil conspiracy, wanton and willful misconduct, premises liability along with the negligent and intentional infliction of emotional distress. This woman stood up for herself and pursued legal action regardless of the status of the aggressor. If you find yourself in a similar situation you should report the incident and contact a Farmington assault and battery attorney. Never be intimidated or fearful because of the person’s status or possible retaliation.

    Byron, when is enough enough, buddy? Why is The Lew still tied to your wife’s hip?

    Also, who needs who more? Does Lewandowski need Kristi Noem more than Kristi needs The Lew? If Noem doesn’t set a record landslide in a state that is less than 32 percent Democrat and has a 91 percent Republican legislature, her political future is DOA after November 8. Newer (and hotter) faces like Arizona’s Kari Lake would bring a whole lot more energy and firepower to a Trump or DeSantis ticket … as well as greatly needed swing state votes.

    After November 8, the fool’s gambit will be over. Kristi has more than enough Republicans and horny old guys to win in a second term, but not by a big enough margin to impress national GOP donors and organizers. The Lew will be off to another campaign and more fannies and breasts to grab. Byron will be using the name to follow Mike Rounds’ example and open up new insurance offices in Sioux Falls and Rapid City. Don’t get mad, just get ahead, right Byron? You can get Kassidy a job answering phones and nobody needs to lose their job!

    And Kristi. Oh, Kristi will be parking her scrawny butt in the new spa in that $4 million mansion near the slough we call Capitol Lake. Fox News will stop calling. Even ass grabbin’ Chucky Herbster will be ghosting Kristi. The Freedom Caucus is taking over the legislative leadership positions because they’re sick of sitting on the sidelines with a deadbeat narcissist governor. Then it will dawn on Kristi: This has all been a whole lot more bother and work than she ever wanted.

    “Why in tarnation did I want to be governor of this backwater hole?”

    Should she stay for another four years — and do what? Hope Trump or DeSantis will win in ’24? Damn, that’s a long time.

    “Why not just unload this crap on Rhoden or let the whack-a-doos in the Freedom Caucus burn it all to the ground? Who gives a sh*t!”

    Kristi pours the last of the Skinnygirl™ Pinot Grigio in the complimentary wine glass The Lew gave her at the Petroleum Club. That was when they were the wannabe-power couple at the 2019 Hayride at Lake Charles. The Bayou was buzzin’ that night! And then people actually got to meet and listen to Kristi talk.
    And the buzz buzzed off.

    “Damn! Resignin’ sounds like a whole lotta work. It can wait,” she whispers and gulps the last of the wine.

    “After all, tomorrow’s another day.”

  10. P. Aitch 2022-10-02 12:45

    But, your Governor Noem was portrayed in a Bad-Trump Personality sketch on SNL, last night. (Her intro was as a woman that takes away other women’s rights.) #grins

  11. Arlo Blundt 2022-10-02 14:42

    She sent him a text??? I’m with All Mammal on this…seems like Lewandowski is definitely the dominate partner in this relationship, whether it’s personal or political. Who works for who in this deal?? The Governor’s judgement should be seriously questioned. While the groping of Tashelle Odom, wife of a wealthy Idaho political giver by an EMPLOYEE of Mrs. Noem is an awkward issue to bring forth in the campaign, I wonder what Mr. and Mrs. South Dakota make of this nonsense.??

  12. mike from iowa 2022-10-02 14:56

    Noem Nothing is certainly keeping ‘big guv’ out of LewdandLusty’s life.

  13. 96Tears 2022-10-02 15:09

    That’s just it, Arlo. Mr. and Mrs. South Dakota don’t read blogs. They don’t read Politico and don’t know anybody who does. Mr. and Mrs. South Dakota pay a little attention to Keloland to catch the weather and sports. None of the dailies do a competent job of providing the news unless it’s a picture of someone’s big fish, a car wreck, sports scores and scant wire stories wrapped around the ads that eat up two-thirds or more of each page. Cory does a fantastic job putting news into relevant, readable, attributable and digestible forms. I suspect it gets well read by the political operatives in both parties in the state, but barely makes a dent into the vast pool of regular folks who vote but know next to nothing about issues and the names on the ballot. The SDGOP and the parasites who make money from serving the party know that and they sleep comfortably at night knowing their pockets will get filled every election. In the last 20 years, I have yet to see a Republican campaign manager or candidate in South Dakota work hard or break a sweat to keep winning campaigns. Noem is the first GOP governor I’ve seen badly screw up and make the wrong kind of messy news in an election year in South Dakota. Normally, the SDGOP code of the road is to make no news, disturb nobody and sleep through another election. Yet, what’s the prediction for November 8 despite Noem’s incompetence?

  14. Bob Newland 2022-10-02 15:18

    Trashelle Odom. That name is simply priceless.

  15. All Mammal 2022-10-02 16:15

    P. Aitch- I saw that too and am reluctant to admit that I’m not quite sure if I got the joke:/
    Forgive me, but was she talking like a vampire because her laws are draconian and she’s not very bright? She’s definitely queen of the damned.
    Writing a parody of her would be a hoot. I would also really like to see her substitute at a daycare with some rambunctious rascals. At three years old, kids are brutal and would ask her stuff like, “Why do you have spider legs on your eyes?” while trying to pull off one of her false lashes.
    A baby couldn’t resist latching his chubby hands onto her door knocker earrings and tugging like a trucker when he goes by a carload of kids giving him the honk-honk gesture. I like to think I would try to help her out instead of secretly giving her charges sips of pop.

  16. Bonnie B Fairbank 2022-10-02 17:21

    I believe I called Kristi Lynn “The Queen of the Dumbed” in a post way back in ’21, All Mammal.

    Ninety percent of the people I know in Fall River County are Reptilians; when I try to have conversations with them, however general and benign, I discover they don’t read ANYTHING and don’t think critically or for themselves. They unabashedly boast they watch FOX and listen to right-wing talk shows all day and night and they suck it all down as God’n’Jeezus’s truth, Amen, and TRUMP WON.

    It’s difficult for me to reassure myself that people aren’t getting any stupider, BUT THEY ARE.

  17. Arlo Blundt 2022-10-02 23:42

    Impulse Control?? Sounds to me like Cory Lewandowski might get a handle on it if he eliminated mixing Seconal with amphetamines and straight up shots of Wild Turkey. Face it, he doesn’t know or care who he is, Who you are, who he works for, where he’s at, what he’s doing or who he’s with. He just wants to get off. Great hire, Governor Noem.

  18. larry kurtz 2022-10-03 10:56

    The deal Mrs. Noem has made with her husband to accept whatever comes up must be a doozy. Democrats = safe sex; Republicans = cheap sex.

  19. mike from iowa 2022-10-03 12:42

    magats = cheap, tawdry sex. Ask Fanklin Graham about cabana boys and wives.

  20. Bonnie B Fairbank 2022-10-03 13:49

    Trashelle IS an unfortunate name, Bob. One of the posters here a year ago hoped it was pronounced Tray-shelle and I still hope it is.
    Otherwise, THANKS Mom; THANKS; Dad. Be like naming your daughter Latrina.

  21. Bob Newland 2022-10-03 19:05

    Latrina. THAT’s funny. Maybe not as funny as being sentenced to eight hours of therapy for “impulse control,” but still pretty funny,

    If ever someone needed therapy for “impulse control,” I nominate Kristi. On the other hand, do I want her “impulses” to be “controlled?” That could be frightening.

  22. oldtimerDon 2022-10-03 19:07

    Noem has already set up her exit from Presidential politics. Her back injury will make it difficult to maintain the rigors of a Presidential campaign.

  23. John Dale 2022-10-04 10:14

    What is this misandry?!
