A lawsuit filed against President Trump by a former campaign staffer who claimed that he “forcibly kissed” her in 2016 has been thrown out of a Florida federal court.

Alva Johnson, 43, an outreach director for Trump in Alabama and Florida, said that the then-candidate went for a lip-lock outside one of his rallies in Tampa, Fla., on Aug. 24, 2016.

“I immediately felt violated because I wasn’t expecting it or wanting it,” she told the Washington Post in February, when she filed suit. “I can still see his lips coming straight for my face.”

Judge William Jung tossed Johnson’s lawsuit Friday, saying that it included extraneous information – including details of 19 other alleged incidents of sexual misconduct by Trump over the past 40 years – and hinting that it was filed to score political points.

“As currently stated, the Complaint presents a political lawsuit, not a tort and wages lawsuit,” Jung wrote in the order. “If Plaintiff wishes to make a political statement or bring a claim for political purposes, this is not the forum.”
