A lawsuit, the details of which were obtained by the New York Post, reveal more trouble for Trump’s campaign CEO.

“Julia Panely-Pacetti, a new mother who suffers from multiple sclerosis, was terminated by defendants from her position as head of public relations and corporate marketing because of her sex and her disability,” states the lawsuit, filed in Manhattan federal court in September 2005.

The action was filed against American Vantage Companies, Panely-Pacetti’s then-employer, where she reported directly to Stephen Bannon, Trump’s top adviser and the chief of Breitbart News.


Panely-Pacetti claimed she was fired “while she was on a protected Family and Medical Leave Act maternity leave, even though she had been forced to continue performing her job responsibilities from home throughout her maternity leave,” the suit states.

News of the lawsuit comes just days after The Post exclusively reported that the man hired to remake Trump’s image roughed up and threatened his wife during their marriage, and also spanked their toddler twin girls, according to legal papers filed in their subsequent divorce case.
