Mindy McGillivray is among three women to come forward with a claim that Donald Trump behaved inappropriately with them. McGillivray came forward to the Palm Beach Post, claiming that Trump groped her in 2003 when she visited Mar-a-Lago. Trump denied this claim.

Here’s what we know about McGillivray so far. This post will continue to be updated.

1. McGillivray Says She Was Groped by Trump in 2003 When She Was 23

McGillivray told the Palm Beach Post that Trump groped her at Mar-A-Lago, Trump’s Florida resort, in 2003 and never reported the incident to the authorities. The only people she told about it were friends and family.

Photographer Ken Davidoff backed up McGillivray’s story, telling the Post that he remembers her telling him after the alleged incident that, “Donald Trump just grabbed my ass.” The alleged incident happened when Davidoff and his late father were hired to take photos of Ray Charles playing at Mar-a-Lago. McGillivray was a friend of Davidoff and he invited her to help him. She had gone with him to Mar-A-Lago five or six times before.

After the show, McGillivray found herself in a sea of celebrities, including Trump.

“All of a sudden I felt a grab, a little nudge,” she said. “I think it’s Ken’s camera bag, that was my first instinct. I turn around and there’s Donald. He sort of looked away quickly. I quickly turned back, facing Ray Charles, and I’m stunned.”

At the time, she remembers thinking about telling someone, but decided not to. Davidoff said that he did not witness the alleged incident, but he doesn’t have reasons to doubt her.

When the Post asked McGillivray if she was definitely sure that it was Trump who grabbed her from behind, she said it couldn’t have been an accident. “This was a pretty good nudge. More of a grab…It was pretty close to the center of my butt. I was startled. I jumped,” she said.

McGillivray claims that the incident took place on January 24, 2003. However, according to a Ray Charles archive, Charles was scheduled to be in Seattle for a show on January 23, 2003, but the show was cancelled. The site also lists January 21 and February 1, 2003 shows cancelled in Colorado Springs.

Davidoff’s brother, Daryl, later told the Palm Beach Post that he thinks McGillivray isn’t telling the truth and is angry with his brother. He said that since Davidoff came forward to back McGillivray’s claims, their business has been hurt.

McGillivray told the Post that she also had another run-in with Trump two years earlier at Mar-a-Lago at the 2001 New Year’s Eve Party. She came out of the restroom and Trump “caught me right before I headed downstairs. He goes, ‘It’s a cool evening, isn’t it?’ He had this debonair tone. He was totally flirting,” McGillivray claims.

She claims that Trump’s wife, Melania, came in to “save the day.”

“She sees me. She had this shawl on because it was cold on New Year’s. And she whips the shawl behind her neck and storms off into the bathroom. I made a quick pivot and went straight downstairs and he went after her,” McGillivray claims.

After the alleged 2003 incident, McGillivray never saw Trump again.

McGillivray was the third woman to come forward with a story claiming that Trump sexually assaulted them. Jessica Leeds and Rachel Crooks told their stories to the New York Times.

Leeds claims that she was assaulted by Trump on a plane three decades ago. She had never met him before. She alleges that he tried to put his hands up her skirt and grabbed her breasts. “It was an assault,” she said.

Crooks claims that Trump behaved inappropriately with her in 2005, when she was 22. When she introduced herself to Trump, he “kissed me directly on the mouth,” she said. She called it “inappropriate,” adding, “I was so upset that he thought I was so insignificant that he could do that.”

All three of these women have come forward after October 7, when a tape of Trump graphically describing to then-Access Hollywood host Billy Bush his attempt to have sex with Nancy O’Dell at a furniture store. Trump also said that his celebrity status gave him the ability to have a woman whenever he wanted. “Grab them by the p—y. You can do anything,” Trump said.

Trump has repeatedly referred to his comments on the tape as “locker room talk.” HE also denied the claims McGillivray, Crooks and Leeds have made.

“There is no truth to this whatsoever,” Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks told the Post. “This allegation lacks any merit or veracity.”

Here is the Trump campaign’s full statement, which was released before McGillivray’s allegations were published by the Palm Beach Post.

This entire article is fiction, and for the New York Times to launch a completely false, coordinated character assassination against Mr. Trump on a topic like this is dangerous. To reach back decades in an attempt to smear Mr. Trump trivializes sexual assault, and it sets a new low for where the media is willing to go in its efforts to determine this election.

It is absurd to think that one of the most recognizable business leaders on the planet with a strong record of empowering women in his companies would do the things alleged in this story, and for this to only become public decades later in the final month of a campaign for president should say it all.

Further, the Times story buries the pro-Clinton financial and social media activity on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s candidacy, reinforcing that this truly is nothing more than a political attack. This is a sad day for the Times.

The Hillary Clinton campaign quickly issued the following statement on the allegations:

  1. The dates she claims she was assaulted at a concert cannot be factual. I looked up the dates of that event and it wasn’t taking place in that area or time when she claims it took place. In fact, the last time it took place in that area was over a year before she claims it happened… over a year. This is incredibly suspicious (at best).

  2. In the original Palm Beach newspaper report it was the photographer, not her, who offered January 24, 2003, as the date of the Ray Charles concert. It appears from other reporting that there was Ray Charles concert at Mar-a-Lago on January 1, 2003.

  3. OMG OMG OMG Donald Trump sexually assaulted me 12 years ago. I was so scared for my life that I “forgot” to file a police report when it happened. I only remembered the attack happened when I saw his face come on the TV. I’m so scared for my life!!! Please believe me!!! This really happened and I promise I’m not lying.

    Yeah, don’t worry lady. I’ll help you pack.
