Businessman, Political Candidate
Charles Herbster is a business executive who ran for Governor of Nebraska in 2014 and 2022. During his 2022 campaign, he was endorsed by former president Donald Trump but ultimately lost the Republican nomination to Jim Pillen.
In April 2022, a Nebraska State Senator and seven other women accused Herbster of groping or forced kissing. Other witnesses come forward to support these allegations. Soon after, a legislative assistant to another state senator also accused Herbster of groping her at an event.
