South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem responded to “disgusting” rumors of an alleged affair with advisor and former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.
American Greatness, an online conservative journal, reported Tuesday that “multiple sources” allege an extramarital affair that has continued for months. The report says the sources allege members of Congress called the affair an “open secret.”
Lewandowski, a married father of four, was former President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign manager and is an advisor to Noem. Lewandowski was frequently on the governor’s campaign trail as she campaigned for Trump across the country during the 2020 campaign.
Noem tweeted Wednesday denying the report calling it “total garbage” and a “disgusting lie.”
The alleged affair comes as a major Republican donor alleged Lewandowski made unwanted sexual advances toward her at a Las Vegas charity event over the weekend.
