10th Alleged Victim Comes Forward

The day after Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton squared off in their third and final presidential debate Wednesday night, a 10th woman has come forward claiming the GOP nominee once sexually assaulted her. In a press conference with attorney Gloria Allred, Karena Virginia said that Trump grabbed her at the 1998 U.S. Open.

Karena Virginia, a self-described wellness expert and TV personality, alleged that Trump grabbed her arm and touched her breast during an encounter at the U.S. Open in Flushing, Queens, New York, in 1998.

“Hey, look at this one,” she recalled overhearing Trump telling a group of men. “We haven’t seen her before. Look at those legs.”

Virginia said those comments made her feel like an "object" rather than a person.

Businessman and Clinton surrogate Mark Cuban made news Wednesday night before the debate when he said he knew at least two other women who were victimized by Trump, but refuse to come forward. In that same conversation, Trump's friend and ally, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, denied the allegations. He said witnesses have falsified at least one woman's story, while noting that he's known Trump for years and he has always been a gentleman to women. 

The GOP nominee has also repeatedly denied the women's claims, concluding it is a coordinated attack on him just a few weeks before the general election. The alleged victims came forward after Trump denied ever acting on what he crudely described in the infamous "Access Hollywood" tapes.
