Singer Joy Villa (R) “filed a police report … accusing Corey Lewandowski, President Trump’s former campaign manager, of slapping her twice on the buttocks at a party in Washington in November. Villa, who is considering running for Congress against Rep. Charlie Crist (D), said “Lewandowski slapped her ‘violently hard, enough to hurt me.’” She said “she told him to stop, and that she could report him for sexual harassment. ‘He says, ‘Go ahead, I work in the private sector,’ Ms. Villa said.”

“Villa said she was considering running for Congress in Florida, where she lives. She is being advised by Roger J. Stone Jr., a staunch supporter of Mr. Trump who has clashed with Mr. Lewandowski. Mr. Stone did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment on Wednesday.” (New York Times)
