Rachel Crooks, the 35-year-old Democrat running for state legislature in Ohio who says President Trump forcibly kissed her in 2005, secured the Democratic nomination for her intended seat on Tuesday after running unopposed, CNN reports.
Crooks, a former receptionist who worked in Trump Tower, accused the president of forcibly kissing her in 2005 and came forward with her accusation in 2016 just before the general election.
Trump denied her claims after The Washington Post covered the allegations in detail in February.
The article goes on to state the following:
Crooks told Cosmopolitan magazine in February that friends and a liberal activist group encouraged her to run for office, and that she was inspired by a wave of Democratic activism in the face of Trump’s election.
“I think like a lot of women, because we’ve been historically underrepresented in politics, I didn’t necessarily see myself in this role,” she said. “But multiple people encouraged and said, ‘I think you would be great.’ … Once I sat down and mulled it over, I felt like it really was a duty that I had, that I should take on this responsibility firsthand and try to make a difference for other people.”
