Gov. J.B. Pritzkers campaign faces a new federal lawsuit, this time containing sexual discrimination allegations from a woman who is transgender.
However, a spokesman for the governors campaign said Sunday the woman was let go with several others after last years primary election and he said the people who made that call had no information about her transgender status.
Emma Todd said she worked for Pritzkers campaign as a field organizer starting in August 2017, received good feedback and had no problems on the job. But she began working for a new supervisor in February 2018, who allegedly told her she was the reason people dont like transgender people.
The supervisor also allegedly viewed transgender identity as a sexual fetish and asked about transgender sexual habits in a prurient manner, according to the lawsuit.
The complaint alleges that Todd was fired around March 25 based on illegal discrimination.
