A New Donald Trump Accuser Says He Reached Up Her Skirt at New York Nightclub

Trump denied the allegation

(WASHINGTON) — Another woman has come forward to say she was sexually assaulted by Donald Trump. His campaign denies the allegation.

Kristin Anderson tells The Washington Post that she was sitting on a couch with friends at a New York nightclub in the early 1990s when someone’s hand reached up her skirt and touched her through her underwear.

Then in her early 20s, Anderson tells the newspaper in story posted online Friday that she pushed the hand away, turned around and recognized Trump as the man who had groped her.

Trump’s campaign spokeswoman says, “Mr. Trump strongly denies this phony allegation by someone looking to get some free publicity. It is totally ridiculous.”

The Post says it contacted the 46-year-old Anderson after a friend she told about the incident recounted it to a reporter. Other friends also told the Post that Anderson told them the same story years ago.

Anderson’s account comes after several other women have reported that Trump groped or kissed them without their consent. The Republican presidential nominee has denied the allegations.
