Trashelle Odom is an Idaho woman and wife of Trump donor and construction company executive John Odom. She accused former Trump aide Corey Lewandowski of making unwanted sexual advances and groping her inappropriately. Lewandowski was removed from his position running a pro-Trump super PAC after Odom came forward with the accusations against him on September 29, 2021.

The 32-year-old Odom told Politico the incident occurred at a charity event in Las Vegas on September 26, the political news site reports. Odom told Politico that the 48-year-old Lewandowski, who is married with children, “stalked” her at the event. Politico reports firsthand witnesses corroborated Odom’s accusations.

Trashelle Odom said in a statement, “On the evening of September 26 in Las Vegas, Nevada, I attended a dinner to support a charity and spend time with wonderful friends. He repeatedly touched me inappropriately, said vile and disgusting things to me, stalked me, and made me feel violated and fearful. I am coming forward because he needs to be held accountable. I am blessed to have a loving husband and family behind me. I want other women to know that you can be heard, too, and together we can stop terrible things like this from happening.”

Lewandowski’s attorney, David Chesnoff, told Politico, “Accusations and rumors appear to be morphing by the minute and we will not dignify them with a further response.” But the former Trump campaign manager was removed from his position at the helm of Make America Great Again Action, The New York Times reports. A spokesperson for Trump, Taylor Budowich, told The Times, “Corey Lewandowski will be going on to other endeavors and we very much want to thank him for his service. He will no longer be associated with Trump World.”

Here’s what you need to know about Trashelle Odom and her accusations against Corey Lewandowski:


1. Trashelle Odom Said Lewandowski Touched Her Leg & Butt Repeatedly, Told Her She Had a ‘Nice Ass’ & Threw a Drink at Her When She Turned Down His Advances, Adding That She Feared for Her Safety

According to Politico, Trashelle Odom said in her statement that the incident occurred while she and her husband were attending an event with other Republican donors at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino’s Benihana restaurant on Sunday, September 26, 2021. She said in her statement that she was sitting next to Lewandowski. The event was to support Victoria’s Voice Foundation, a charity that combats substance abuse. Trashelle Odom said in a statement that Lewandowski remarked about the size of his genitalia and described his sexual performance and showed her his hotel room key. “After the incident, Odom told people that Lewandowski repeatedly spoke about sex while using expletives,” Politico wrote.

The Odoms’ attorney said in the statement, “Mrs. Odom stated that over the course of the dinner, Mr. Lewandowski tried to hold her hand, and she pushed his hand away. He touched her leg, and she moved it away. He grabbed her napkin off her lap and tried to touch her leg again, and she pulled her dress over her leg, to move his hand away and cover her skin. 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—on the upper side of her rear end. Lewandowski tried to touch her approximately 10 times, and Mrs. Odom always rebuffed him.”

According to the statement, Odom left the room and Lewandowski followed her, telling her she has a “nice ass” and then “threw his drink” at her. She said it landed on her shoe and dress. The former Trump aide also “called her stupid,” Politico reports. Her attorney said Lewandowski told Trashelle he is “very powerful and can destroy anyone” and that he is close to Trump and can “get anyone elected or can take anyone out.” According to Politico, other attendees at the dinner said Lewandowski appeared to be intoxicated, and a photo reviewed by the news site showed Lewandowski above Odom’s right shoulder with his tongue sticking out.

Odom said in the statement to Politico, “Corey was verbally and physically aggressive and forceful. I was fearful for my physical safety. I was also fearful that Corey has the power to destroy and ruin everything my husband and I have been working on in our business, personal and charitable endeavors.”

I had to work my butt off to get my first car. … Everything is better than I thought. I had lots of dreams of what I wanted in life. But more the kind of man I wanted to be with, how I wanted to raise my kids, all kinds of different things. 100% it’s so much better. I never really thought I could have that. I never really thought that I could have a man that treats me like a queen, he works all day and we go on trips and all these things are amazing. Our kids are everything. Everything that we have is definitely nice, but it doesn’t compare to my family life. It’s just way better than I ever imagined.”

At the conclusion of his remarks and with a room full of great patriots I was taken aback with incredible gratitude.
