Another woman on Friday accused GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump of an unwanted sexual advance, telling The Washington Post the real estate mogul groped her under her skirt in the early 1990s.
Kristin Anderson, in an interview with The Post, said she was sitting on a couch and chatting with friends in a Manhattan nightclub when suddenly someone’s hands moved up her leg and under her miniskirt and fondled her.
After pushing the person’s hand away, she said she jumped up from the couch, looked back and recognized the person who’d groped her as Donald Trump.
“He was so distinctive looking — with the hair and the eyebrows,” Anderson told The Post. “I mean, nobody else has those eyebrows.”
She told the newspaper she’s described the incident to various acquaintances over the years and decided to go public, after first being contacted by a reporter, after other women made accusations of sexual misconduct this week against the Republican presidential nominee.
In a statement to The Post, Trump campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks denied the incident with Anderson occurred.
“Mr. Trump strongly denies this phony allegation by someone looking to get some free publicity,” Hicks said. “It is totally ridiculous.”
The swirl of allegations this week of sexual misconduct by Trump began Wednesday night when The New York Times published a story in which two women accused Trump of groping them, one in the 1970s, another in 2005.
Last Friday, a recording surfaced from 2005 in which Trump was heard talking graphically about how he is able to grope women because of his celebrity status, a revelation that has left his campaign embattled ever since.
