LOS ANGELES (CBS SF/CBS/AP) — An adult film star has alleged Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump made unwanted sexual advances toward her at a Lake Tahoe golf tournament.
Jessica Drake is the eleventh woman to accuse the GOP candidate of sexual misconduct.
At a press conference, Drake detailed the 10-year-old encounter as feminist attorney Gloria Allred sat by her side Saturday, in Los Angeles.
At the time, Drake was an actress for Wicked Pictures, an adult film company. She said she first met the real estate mogul at her company’s booth.
“He flirted with me and invited me to walk along the golf course with him,” Drake said. After he asked for her number, Trump invited her to his room later that night.
“Two other women came with me,” Drake said, because she was uncomfortable going alone to Trump’s penthouse suite. When they arrived at his room, she said, “he grabbed each of us tightly in a hug and kissed each one of us without asking permission.” A security guard was present.
Drake said after what felt like an interview, the women left, but Trump asked her to return to his suite. After she refused, a man calling on his behalf offered her $10,000 and the use of his private jet.
She told reporters, “This is not acceptable behavior for anyone — much less a presidential candidate.”
Trump’s campaign has denied the allegations.
The GOP candidate is threatening to sue all of the women who have come forward in recent days accusing him of groping and sexual assault.
In a speech he said he intends to make his closing argument to voters that the women are “liars” attempting to undermine his campaign. And he says all will be sued once the election is over.
He’s continuing to make the case that the election is rigged against him, and complains that “corrupt” media are fabricating stories to make him look “as bad and dangerous as possible.”
