JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Elizabeth Mae Davidson, a former Iowa field organizer, filed a sex discrimination complaint against Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Thursday, The New York Times reported.

Davidson, who was fired this month, complained that her male colleagues were paid more and were able to speak at campaign rallies, while her requests to do so were refused, the Times reported.

Davidson told the Times that she was told she was fired for breaking a nondisclosure agreement and for making “disparaging comments about senior campaign leaders to third parties.” The Trump campaign didn’t return the newspaper’s multiple requests for comment.
