Judge Tosses Lawsuit of Former Campaign Staffer Alva Johnson Who Accused Candidate Trump of Kissing Her
In February Alva Johnson, 43, a former staffer to Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign claimed candidate Trump kissed her without consent at a small gathering just before a Florida rally, an encounter she says still haunts her and causes her anguish.
And she wanted money.
Ms. Johnson appeared on fake news MSNBC in February and cried as she recalled her traumatic encounter with Donald Trump.
MSNBC’s Chris Hayes spoke to Alva Johnson Tuesday evening and she broke down in tears as she recounted how she felt after the Billy Bush tape was released.
” So when I heard the audio (Billy Bush tape) I was screaming in my car, I’m like ‘oh my God that exactly what he did to me.’”
“I never went back to work…I was afraid,” Johnson said.
"I never went back to work…I was afraid."

On Friday Judge William Jung tossed her case.
FOX News reported:
A lawsuit filed by a former campaign staffer who accused Donald Trump of forcibly kissing her was dismissed by a federal judge on Friday.
According to Politico, U.S. District Court Judge William Jung tossed out Alva Johnson’s complaint, saying in his 15-page order that “the complaint presents a political lawsuit, not a tort and wages lawsuit.”
Jung added, “If plaintiff wishes to make a political statement or bring a claim for political purposes, this is not the forum.”
