Alva Johnson, a former Trump campaign staffer for President Donald Trump and his campaign, filed a lawsuit against the president today alleging that the then-Republican presidential candidate tried to kiss her without her consent during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Johnson, an event planner from Alabama, described an encounter with Trump on August 24, 2016, in which he allegedly grabbed her hand and attempted to kiss her on the mouth inside an RV during a campaign event in Florida.

“As Defendant Trump spoke, he tightened his grip on Ms. Johnson’s hand and leaned towards her. He moved close enough that she could feel his breath on her skin,” the lawsuit states. “Ms. Johnson suddenly realized that Defendant Trump was trying to kiss her on the mouth, and attempted to avoid this by turning her head to the right. Defendant Trump kissed her anyway, and the kiss landed on the corner of her mouth.”

The lawsuit alleges that several witnesses saw the incident, including then-Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, then-State Director Karen Giorno, and Regional Directors Earl “Tony” Ledbetter, Mitch Tyner and Nick Corvino.
