(Pierre, SD) -- Governor Kristi Noem says a rumor alleging she is having an affair with former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is "disgusting."
Noem responded Wednesday to a report by online conservative journal American Greatness that cited "multiple sources" alleging an extramarital affair that has continued for months.
"These rumors are total garbage and a disgusting lie," said Noem on Twitter. "These old, tired attacks on conservative women are based on a falsehood that we can't achieve anything without a man's help. I love Bryon. I'm proud of the God-fearing family we've raised together. Now I'm getting back to work."
The sources the report cites are all anonymous. Lewendowski is a married father of four who managed former President Trump's 2016 campaign and crossed paths with the governor when she stumped for Trump during the 2020 campaign.
