Feminist attorney Gloria Allred said Monday that she has been contacted by women who allege they were sexually harassed or abused by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Allred, whose specialty is civil rights cases, particularly those involving the protection of women’s rights, said the contacts came both before and after the release on Friday of 2005 “Access Hollywood” video footage in which Trump bragged about groping women.
Citing attorney-client privilege, Allred declined to talk about the details of the conversations. She also said she could not disclose how many women have contacted her.
“That’s about all I can say for now, and we’ll have to wait and see what happens next,” Allred told City News Service.
In a statement released last Tuesday, the Los Angeles-based lawyer said Trump once told her that she “would be very, very impressed” with the size of his penis.
