Former 'Apprentice' contestant accuses Trump of sexual abuse

Summer Zervos, former contestant on "The Apprentice" television program, accused Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump this Friday of sexual misconduct, a case similar to another reported Friday by The Washington Post.

At a press conference in Los Angeles, Zervos, accompanied by her attorney Gloria Allred, said that in 2007 Trump kissed and groped her without her consent at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Southern California.

Zervos, a contestant during the fifth season of the show hosted by Trump, said she decided to come out with her story after several women over the past few days reported inappropriate sexual behavior by the tycoon, and particularly after the airing on television of a 2005 video in which he is heard making vulgar sexual comments about women.

Zervos was eliminated from the TV competition "The Apprentice" but says she continued seeing the multimillionaire since he acted as her mentor and she hoped there was a chance to work for him.
