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.
