NEW YORK - On Thursday morning, another woman came forward with new accusations of sexual misconduct by the GOP nominee, Donald Trump. 45-year-old yoga instructor Karena Virginia made a public statement accompanied by attorney Gloria Allred. "I am here today to add my voice to that of the other Trump accusers," Virginia said.
The accuser says Trump approached her in 1998 while she waited for a car after the U.S. Open tennis tournament in Queens, New York. It started when she heard him talking about her to a group of men nearby, telling the press, "He said 'Hey, look at this one. We haven't seen her before. Look at those legs.' He then walked up to me and reached his right arm and grabbed my right arm then his hand touched the right inside of my breast. 'Don't you know who I am.' That's what he said to me."
Virginia says it took years for her to get over the disturbing encounter, explaining, "My shock turned to shame. I now understand that I was not to blame." She also says she was warned not to come forward. "I feel that it is my duty as a woman, as a mother, a human being and as an American citizen to speak out and tell the truth."
Trump's campaign released a statement calling Virginia's attorney a political operative and implying the accusations are coordinated by Clinton's camp.
All this "he said, she said" is getting exhausting. November 8 can't get here fast enough!
