Trump Harasses Davenport Campaign Manager Then Fires Her
Trump. What an emotionally-charged name, no matter who you are, including an area woman who has filed a discrimination suit against him.
It's Iowa Caucus night and lo and behold, we have a suit! Well, actually, there are a lot of suits and men and women in them, but that's not the kind I'm talking about.
A former paid organizer for the Donald Trump organization, who was hired to assist in the Davenport, IA. area, has filed a sex discrimination suit against him with the Davenport Civil Rights Commission last Thursday.
Elizabeth Mae Davidson, 26, who was the Trump campaign’s field organizer here in Davenport, Iowa’s third-largest city, said in a discrimination complaint that men doing the same jobs were paid more and were allowed to plan and speak at rallies, while her requests to do so were ignored. She also said that when she and a young female volunteer met Mr. Trump at a rally last summer, he told them, “You guys could do a lot of damage,” referring to their looks.
Trump is denying the allegations, Trump-style:
“That is not the worst thing that could be said,” Mr. Trump said. “But I never said it. It’s not in my vocabulary.”
Elizabeth Davidson, a paralegal, is also a former competitor in the Miss Iowa Competition and currently resides in Bettendorf, IA. She disclosed in an interview that she was being compensated $2000/month working for Trump's campaign, while male employees doing the same job, one of them also having a day job as a lawyer, was making $3500-$4000/month.
