A former Trump campaign staffer is suing the president and campaign, claiming pregnancy and sex discrimination, POLITICO reports.
A.J. Delgado, in a suit filed Monday in New York, says that she was sidelined by the campaign about six weeks after the 2016 election, a short while after she informed them that she was pregnant.
The lawsuit also names Trump’s transition organization, Trump for America, as a defendant, along with Trump aides Sean Spicer, Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon.
The lawsuit also briefly discusses that the father of the child was a married, senior staffer on the campaign, senior communication adviser Jason Miller.
“Immediately after Plaintiff Delgado announced her pregnancy, the Campaign and TFA, including Spicer, Bannon and Priebus, Plaintiff’s supervisors, stripped Plaintiff of her job responsibilities and duties throughout for the remainder of her employment from late December of 2016 and through the Inauguration in late January of 2017,” the suit reads.
