Trump House creator Leslie Rossi says she is ‘humbled’ at receiving GOP nod for open state House seat

Leslie Baum Rossi said she was “humbled” by her selection Saturday by a group of party confreres from Somerset and Westmoreland counties to be the Republican candidate in the May 18 special election to fill the vacancy in the 59th District state House seat created by the recent death of Mike Reese.

Rossi, 50, was chosen by 26 appointed members of the Westmoreland County Republican Committee from the district that includes 42 precincts in eastern Westmoreland County, as well as 10 in western Somerset County during a meeting at the Fort Ligonier History Education Center in Ligonier.

The Unity woman won the party’s nod over four other Republicans, including Reese’s widow, Angela Reese, 44, of Mt. Pleasant Township; Ligonier Township police Officer Shawn Knepper; Latrobe attorney John Hauser, 42; and Dustin D. DeLuca, 35, of Jennerstown.

Rossi, a businesswoman and mother of eight children, who created the Trump House in Unity, will run against Democrat Mariah Fisher, 39, who was elected to Ligonier Borough Council in 2017. The Westmoreland County Democratic Party nominated Fisher this month to run in the special election.


Rossi said when she arrived in Ligonier on Saturday morning for the meeting, she was buoyed at the sight of about a dozen supporters standing outside the museum “with signs and flags offering their support for me.”

She likened it to the early “grassroots support” that enabled Donald Trump to win the presidency in 2016.

“I felt so humbled as this is the same grassroots movement we all became part of back in 2016 and that will continue on with us as we step up and win Republican seats in our counties and state (this year),” she said.

“Working on the ground and getting to know all the voters I have really left no question in my mind that when this seat opened that I had to put my name in to be the voice of the people,” she said.

During the 2016 presidential primary, Rossi, an early supporter of Trump, painted an old frame house just north of Youngstown along Route 982 red, white and blue and staked a 12-foot metal likeness of Trump in the yard. It became a popular tourist spot for Trump supporters.

Last year, she was a GOP delegate for Trump.

Westmoreland County Party Chairman Bill Bretz said he is impressed by Rossi’s enthusiasm, noting “that she immediately hit the ground running with her campaign” after receiving the party’s nod in Ligonier. He said she spent time meeting and speaking with numerous constituents waiting in line to speak to her after the vote.

Later Saturday, she attended a party nominating petition signing event in Unity where she mingled with other area residents and other candidates.

Rossi said she has enjoyed interacting with people throughout the district the past few weeks as she sought the party’s nomination as a legislative candidate.

“They are the reason I want to be a state House representative — because they deserve someone who will stand up for them,” she said.

Rossi touted a pro-business, conservative platform, noting that in addition to numerous important local, county and state races, she is supporting the May 18 ballot initiative for a constitutional amendment limiting a governor’s powers during disaster emergencies in Pennsylvania.

If passed, the measure would end emergency disaster declarations after 21 days, unless lawmakers approve an extension through a majority vote. If voters approve it in May, it would go into effect.

“Voters must show up May 18 if they want (to stop) the governor’s overreach of power from going forward. Many of the businesses out there looked to their legislators for help during the mandated shutdowns that were crippling their businesses here in this state, but the (legislators’) hands were tied,” Rossi said.

Rossi works in the family’s development business with her husband, Mike.

Republicans make up about 55% of registered voters in the district, while Democrats hold 34%.

Reese, a 42-year-old Republican from Mt. Pleasant Township, ran unopposed in November for a seventh term in office. He died Jan. 2 of an apparent brain aneurysm.

No, it does not sound reasonable.

A president, or future president's, private income taxes are nobody's business but their own.

If they are not under Federal investigation from the IRS, they are assumed to be filed legally.

They are irrelevant, and people only want to have the info to politicize and weaponize, not for any real issue.

You sure it's Nancy?  I thought it was Bill.  Then Obama.  Then Clinton.  Now Joe. 

Sounds like a silent dog whistle for the stupid ones to keep falling for it.

Trump may soon have to answer rape allegations under oath
By Linda So

8 MIN READ


(Reuters) - During a December visit to New York City, writer E. Jean Carroll says she went shopping with a fashion consultant to find the “best outfit” for one of the most important days of her life - when she’ll sit face-to-face with the man she accuses of raping her decades ago, former President Donald Trump.


FILE PHOTO: U.S. President Donald Trump rape accuser E. Jean Carroll arrives for her hearing at federal court during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic in the Manhattan borough of New York City, New York, U.S., October 21, 2020. REUTERS/Carlo Allegri/File Photo
The author and journalist hopes that day will come this year. Her lawyers are seeking to depose Trump in a defamation lawsuit that Carroll filed against the former president in November 2019 after he denied her accusation that he raped her at a Manhattan department store in the mid-1990s. Trump said he never knew Carroll and accused her of lying to sell her new book, adding: “She’s not my type.”

She plans to be there if Trump is deposed.

“I am living for the moment to walk into that room to sit across the table from him,” Carroll told Reuters in an interview. “I think of it everyday.”

Carroll, 77, a former Elle magazine columnist, seeks unspecified damages in her lawsuit and a retraction of Trump’s statements. It is one of two defamation cases involving sexual misconduct allegations against Trump that could move forward faster now that he has left the presidency. While in office, Trump’s lawyers delayed the case in part by arguing that the pressing duties of his office made responding to civil lawsuits impossible.

“The only barrier to proceeding with the civil suits was that he’s the president,” said Jennifer Rodgers, a former federal prosecutor and now an adjunct professor of clinical law at the New York University School of Law.

“I think there will be a sense among the judges that it’s time to get a move on in these cases,” said Roberta Kaplan, Carroll’s attorney.

An attorney for Trump and another representative of the former president did not respond to requests for comment.

Trump faces a similar defamation lawsuit from Summer Zervos, a former contestant on his reality television show “The Apprentice.” In 2016, Zervos accused Trump of sexual misconduct, saying that he kissed her against her will at a 2007 meeting in New York and later groped her at a California hotel as the two met to discuss job opportunities.

Trump denied the allegations and called Zervos a liar, prompting her to sue him for defamation in 2017, seeking damages and a retraction. Trump tried unsuccessfully to have the case dismissed, arguing that, as president, he was immune from suits filed in state courts. His lawyers appealed to the New York Court of Appeals, which is still considering the case. Zervos filed a motion in early February asking the court to resume the case now that Trump’s no longer president.

Zervos and Carroll are among more than two dozen women who have publicly accused Trump of sexual misconduct that they say occurred in the years before he became president. Other accusers include a former model who claims Trump sexually assaulted her at the 1997 U.S. Open tennis tournament; a former Miss Universe pageant contestant who said Trump groped her in 2006; and a reporter who alleges Trump forcibly kissed her without her consent in 2005 at his Mar-a-Lago resort.

Trump has denied the allegations and called them politically motivated.

In September, after several unsuccessful attempts by Trump’s lawyers to get Carroll’s case dismissed or delayed, U.S. Justice Department officials under his administration took the unusual step of asking that the government be substituted for Trump as the defendant in the case. Justice Department lawyers argued that Trump, like any typical government employee, is entitled under federal law to immunity from civil lawsuits when performing his job. They argued that he was acting in his capacity as president when he said Carroll was lying.

Legal experts said it was unprecedented for the Justice Department to defend a president for conduct before he took office. When Judge Lewis Kaplan of the Federal District Court in Manhattan rejected that argument, the Justice Department appealed. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit has yet to rule on it.

It’s yet to be seen whether Justice Department officials under President Joe Biden, who took office last month, will continue to defend the case on Trump’s behalf. The White House and the Justice Department declined to comment.

If the appeals court upholds Judge Kaplan’s decision, it would likely clear the way for Trump to be deposed by Carroll’s lawyers.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE DNA
Carroll’s lawyers are also seeking a DNA sample from Trump. Carroll says she still has the dress she was wearing when Trump allegedly attacked her.

“I hung it in my closet,” she said.

Carroll said she randomly crossed paths with Trump in the Bergdorf Goodman’s store in the mid-1990s. Carroll, who hosted a TV talk show at the time, said Trump recognized her. The two chatted, she said. Trump asked her to pick out a gift for an unidentified woman, and they eventually ended up in the lingerie department. After asking her to try on a body suit, Trump closed the door in a dressing room, pinned her against a wall, unzipped his pants and sexually assaulted her, according to the complaint.

Carroll said she told two friends about the alleged attack shortly after it happened, but did not report Trump to police, fearing retribution from the wealthy and well-connected businessman. Decades later, Carroll went public with her story in a June 2019 New York magazine article, adapted from a new book, “What Do We Need Men For? A Modest Proposal.”

She said she was inspired to recount the incident by the #MeToo movement, which emboldened women to share their experiences of sexual assault and harassment. In photos shot for that story, Kaplan, at the request of the magazine’s photography director, wore the same black Donna Karan dress that she said she had worn on the day that Trump allegedly assaulted her.

When Carroll filed her lawsuit later in 2019, her lawyer, Kaplan, had a guard escort her to retrieve the dress from her closet for forensic testing. An analysis concluded no semen was found on the dress, but the DNA of an unidentified male was detected on the shoulder and sleeves, according to the Jan. 8, 2020 lab report, which was reviewed by Reuters.

If the dress does contain traces of Trump’s DNA, it would not prove his guilt. But a match could be used as evidence that he had contact with the dress and to help disprove his claims that he never met Carroll, according to two forensic experts not involved in the case.

“How his DNA got on that dress would be the argument,” said Monte Miller, a biochemist who runs a DNA analysis consultancy and previously worked at the Texas Department of Public Safety’s State Crime Laboratory. “It’s for the attorneys and the courts and everybody else to argue about why it’s there and how it got there.”

Carroll said she’s confident the DNA on the dress belongs to Trump and wants her day in court. She said she now sleeps with a gun next to her bed because she has received death threats since publicly accusing Trump.

“This defamation suit is not about me,” said Carroll, who meets regularly with other women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct. It’s about every woman “who can’t speak up.” (This story refiles to fix Carroll name reference in sixth paragraph from bottom)
