The former head of the Trump campaign is getting some help with her medical bills after she announced she was suing her former boss.
Gianna Dance Mothers, the nonprofit that works with homeless and drug addicts, is suing Jill Abramson, who she says took her on as an unpaid campaign volunteer.
The lawsuit filed Monday in Manhattan court claims that she was an unpaid volunteer for the Trump presidential campaign for more than two months.
The lawsuit was filed against Abramson by dance moms from New York and California.
They are suing for $150 million.
Abramson’s lawyers are asking for a declaration that Dance Mothers is a nonprofit organization.
She has been a paid volunteer for more of the Republican Party and a number of conservative groups for more a decade, the lawsuit says.
Abramson is also suing former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski for allegedly assaulting her and leaving her to die of an apparent drug overdose in January 2016.
Lewandowski is also accused of trying to take pictures of her naked body as he held her at gunpoint, and of punching her during a confrontation in a hotel room in December 2016.
Abramsson said in a statement Monday that she is confident that her lawsuit is “well-founded and will be vindicated.”
She also said she plans to continue working with Dance Mothers and her fellow dance moms in the hope of helping others.
