Trump's Campaign Manager Called Staffer C-Word In Old Koch Job

Back when he worked for Americans for Prosperity, Corey Lewandowski had a reputation for Red Bull and treating women like....um...dirt.
Trump's Campaign Manager Called Staffer C-Word In Old Koch Job

File under "this should surprise no one," once stories about Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski came out about him (allegedly) getting physically violent with a female reporter...

...and all of a sudden Breitbart employees have discovered their principles because one of THEIR own is caught in the traffic jam....

...it turns out Lewandowski's former co-workers at the Koch-funded super PAC monster "Americans for Prosperity" got their memory jogged about that guy, and they recall he was a Red Bull swilling a-hole who called women the C-word. Politico:

...the incident was far from the first time in Lewandowski’s political career ― or even during the 2016 campaign ― that the intense, Red Bull-chugging operative has been accused of bullying and other inappropriate behavior.

In interviews with more than 20 sources who have dealt with Lewandowski during his nearly year-long tenure with the Trump campaign and in his previous job with the Koch brothers-backed advocacy group Americans for Prosperity, complaints emerged about Lewandowski being rough with reporters and sexually suggestive with female journalists, while profanely berating conservative officials and co-workers he deemed to be challenging his authority.

I love that "complaints emerged" line. Raw Story has more, emphasis mine:

Sources also said Lewandowski loudly — and profanely — berated a woman who worked for him at an AFP board meeting.

Lewandowski was angry at the woman for challenging his authority, and witnesses said he got into her personal space and called her a “c*nt” in front of other AFP employees and senior officials.

He was soon shifted to a newly created role at AFP running a voter registration drive, Politico reported.

Lewandowski left AFP in 2014, after his organization sent incorrect voter registration forms to North Carolina voters.

They created a role for running voter registration? The Koch Brothers? And then gave that job to this bully, who sent incorrect forms to voters in...the South? Of course he did.

If there's an example of the old boy's network, this is it.

But Lewandowski is just another example of the big guy henchman. The guy even looks like Haldeman. My guess is, Trump thinks he's worth every penny and every embarrassment, because that dirty tricking, loud, sexist, keep-them-in-line and 'cheating is part of the game' behavior is what he's paid for.
