Corey Lewandowski, a Trump aide, and married South Dakota governor Kristi Noem, 51, who emphasizes her commitment to “family values,” have reportedly been having an affair since at least 2019 according to a stunning new report.
Now that the illicit relationship has come to light, it may be impossible for Noem to join Trump’s team for a prospective rematch with President Joe Biden.
When reached for comment, neither party attempted to dispute the relationship.
On Friday of last week, when Lewandowski accompanied Trump to Rapid City, South Dakota, for a campaign rally, the two crossed paths.
But in contrast to earlier occasions, the couple was careful to avoid any public engagement after being informed that a report about their relationship was in the works.
Noem, who served four terms as the sole representative for her state in the US House of Representatives, was elected governor of South Dakota in 2018 on a platform of upholding the moral principles that she claimed South Dakotans had “long embraced.”
She was especially concerned with defending “traditional marriage,” which she defined as “a special, God-given union between one man and one woman.”
Noem, who has a son and two daughters with her husband Bryon whom she married in 1992, said it was the foundation for her ideas, policy priorities, and the standards she lives by.
Lewandowski, 49, who has been fervently urging Trump to include her on his ticket, has been associated to her for a long time.
Numerous travels that combined business and pleasure, flights on contributors’ private jets, and stays at opulent resorts where their intimacy was noted and witnessed all provide compelling evidence of the couple’s personal relationship, according to a recent inquiry.
Requests for comment from Lewandowski, who wed 9/11 widow Alison Hardy in 2005 and has four kids, went unanswered.
He supposedly also had a relationship with Hope Hicks, the press secretary for the Trump campaign.
