Adult Film Star Jessica Drake Accuses Donald Trump of Sexual Misconduct

Another woman has come forward to accuse Donald Trump of inappropriate conduct, claiming that he offered her $10,000 and access to his jet to come to his penthouse hotel room at a golf event in 2006.

Jessica Drake, an adult film performer for Wicked Pictures, appeared on Saturday with attorney Gloria Allred. She said that she met Trump ten years ago at a golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, Calif.

She said Trump invited her to his suite after the tournament, and she went with some women friends. When they arrived, she said, he grabbed each of them tightly and kissed them. After they left him, one of his representatives called to invite her to his room alone, but she said she declined.

Then Trump himself called and asked, “What do you want? How much?” After she declined his invite, he eventually offered her $10,000, she said.

Drake is the 11th woman to accuse Trump of inappropriate conduct. Allred represents two others.

At a rally in Gettysburg, Pa., earlier on Saturday, Trump threatened to sue his accusers, saying “all of these liars will be sued” and alleging that they came forward “to hurt my campaign.”

Allred said that Trump’s threat was “a new low,” and said that if he were to sue, they will “welcome the opportunity to depose you.”

Drake said that she came forward aware that “I may be called a liar or opportunist” because of her background.

She said she wanted to also support other women who have gone public.

“I may be but a tiny grain of sand. But clearly this is an enormous beach,” she said.

Drake also showed a picture of she and Trump taken at the golf event.

Update: Trump’s campaign released this statement:

“This story is totally false and ridiculous. The picture is one of thousands taken out of respect for people asking to have their picture taken with Mr. Trump. Mr. Trump does not know this person, does not remember this person and would have no interest in ever knowing her. This is just another attempt by the Clinton campaign to defame a candidate who just today is number one in three different polls. Anyone who would pay thugs to incite violence at a rally against American citizens, as was released on video, will stop at nothing. Just another example of the Clinton campaign trying to rig the election.”
