Dave Lopez, an attorney for a Nebraska state senator who is suing gubernatorial candidate Charles Herbster for sexual battery, intends to subject Herbster senior adviser Kellyanne Conway to discovery in the case, he told Daniel Lippman.
Lopez, who represents state Sen. Julie Slama, said he hopes to find out what Conway, who has worked for Herbster for a year, knew about the underlying allegations and when she knew it. Slama has accused Herbster of groping her at a 2019 political dinner, an allegation he denies.
An additional seven women have also accused Herbster of groping them at either political events or beauty pageants, which he also denies. After Herbster sued Slama for defamation, she counter-sued him for sexual battery.
