Alva Johnson, A Former campaign staffer alleges in a lawsuit that Trump kissed her without her consent
Johnson is a 43-year-old mother of four without a long history of political activism. She registered as a Democrat in California several years ago. She said she voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012 but thought Trump might be able to use his business experience to help struggling black communities.
According to the Post, Johnson says she got interested in the Trump campaign through her stepfather, Jacob Savage, a retired microbiology professor who said he has been active in Republican politics for decades. She met Trump at a November 2015 rally in Birmingham, Ala., where Johnson said the candidate looked her up and down. “Oh, beautiful, beautiful, fantastic,” he said, according to the lawsuit.
Johnson further said that she looked past the comment and in January 2016, took a job as the campaign’s director of outreach and coalitions in Alabama. Johnson said she thought she could put her background in human resources and event planning to use on a political campaign.
Johnson was assigned to Florida, for the three months before the general election. Her main responsibility was managing the recreational vehicles that traversed the state as mobile campaign offices. It was inside one, on a rainy afternoon in Tampa, where Johnson said the candidate pressed his lips against hers.
Johnson said she remained there, feeling embarrassed, and Bondi gave her a grin as she left the RV. The Director of the Florida campaign, Karen Giorno snatched Johnson’s elbow and gave it a tug, Johnson said in the interviews and lawsuit.
Bondi and Giorno said they don’t recall seeing Trump kiss Johnson. They further denied reacting the manner in which Johnson depicted.
“Do I recall seeing anything inappropriate? One hundred percent no,” Bondi said in an interview. “I’m a prosecutor, and if I saw something inappropriate, I would have said something.”
Giorno expelled the claim as “absurd,” saying “that completely did not occur.”
Sanders urged The Post to talk with Stephanie Grisham, a representative for first lady Melania Trump. Grisham, who was Trump’s press executive in 2016, said she didn’t see the supposed kiss and was in front Trump as he left the vehicle. Sanders further stated, “This accusation is absurd on its face. This never happened and is directly contradicted by multiple highly credible eye witness accounts.”
Johnson is reported to have continued working for Trump, even after an opportunity to work in the campaign’s New York headquarters was offered. She however abruptly rescinded in mid-September 2016, according to her and campaign officials. The position was never filled.
Speaking to the Post, Johnson said she was stunned. “I felt sick to my stomach,” she said. “That was what he did to me, The kiss was super-creepy and inappropriate.”
“I immediately felt violated because I wasn’t expecting it or wanting it,” she said. “I can still see his lips coming straight for my face.”
Johnson said she stopped going into the office and, about three weeks before the election, she resigned from her position. “She is having nightmares because of what happened,” therapist Lisheyna Hurvitz wrote on October 27th, 2016, according to notes that Johnson obtained and provided to The Post.
Alva Johnson Attorney
Johnson is also reported to have talked to attorney Adam Horowitz, who is renown for represents sexual abuse victims, including children. “I believe you and want to see you gain justice and expose this behavior,” Horowitz wrote to Johnson in a text dated October 28th, 2016. “Right now my practice simply cannot dive into something like that which would be so time-consuming with an uncertain outcome.”
Alva Johnson Lawsuit
Johnson filed a federal lawsuit against the Trump campaign Monday, February 25th, 2019 in Florida. The suit seeks unspecified damages for emotional pain and suffering.
The suit also alleges that the campaign discriminated against Johnson, who is black, by paying her white male counterparts more.
Campaign spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany denied the claim, calling it “off-base and unfounded.”
Alva Johnson After the Campaign Trail
Johnson said she once again tried to put the event behind her. She attended one of the inaugural balls and twice applied for jobs in the Trump administration. She said she felt she had earned those opportunities through her work on the campaign. Johnson said that, while she was disappointed, being passed over for those jobs, they had no bearing on her decision to sue.
Johnson said she grew agitated as the #MeToo movement emboldened women to speak up about sexual misconduct. She said she was also motivated to act as she saw the impact of the president’s policies, specifically the detention of immigrant children. “Babies in cages — I didn’t think it was going to be this bad,” she said.
Alva Johnson Boyfriend’s Reaction to the Allegations
Following the nonconsensual kiss, Johnson called Miguel Rego, her boyfriend of several years also working on the campaign in Florida. In a Statement to the post, he said “I thought it was crazy that he had kissed her.
Alva Johnson Stepfather’s Reaction to the Allegations
Johnson’s stepfather, Jacob Savage stated, “I felt it was a betrayal of trust,” Savage said. “I felt I was responsible because, had I not introduced her to the campaign, she would not have been in that position.”
Alva Johnson Mother Reaction to the Allegations
Johnson also discussed the incident with her mother, Anne Savage who she described as being hysterical following the incident.
Trump’s Other Sexual Assault and Harassment Accusations
Johnson is not the first woman to accuse the President of Sexual Harassment. At least 16 women have accused Trump of varying inappropriate behavior ranging from sexual harassment to sexual assault, according to ABC News.
Trump has denied all of the women’s accusations.
The women have accused Trump of groping, unwanted kissing, and other misconduct.
Here’s Alva Johnson’s complaint against Donald Trump. It was filed today in Florida. If this moves forward, discovery is going to be interesting. She alleges being forcibly kissed on campaign trail, and there’s plenty of nods to others. https://t.co/XwyuKPPVzy pic.twitter.com/jcCupnBSwA
