Another woman has come forward to accuse Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump of past inappropriate conduct.
In an interview with The Guardian published Saturday, Cathy Heller, a now 63-year-old New York resident, described an encounter she allegedly had with the real estate mogul two decades ago. She told the newspaper Trump grabbed her and attempted to kiss with her without her consent at a Mother's Day brunch at his Mar-a-Lago estate in a year she believes was 1997.
NBC News attempted to contact Heller but was not successful Saturday. NBC News has not verified her account or the accounts of six other women which were made in various media outlets this week. Another woman told the New York Times in May that Trump kissed her directly on the lips during a 1997 beauty pageant and confirmed her account to NBC News Wednesday.
Trump has repeatedly and emphatically denied the women's claims.
"There is no way that something like this would have happened in a public place on Mother's Day at Mr Trump's resort," Jason Miller, a Trump spokesman, told the Guardian in a statement. "It would have been the talk of Palm Beach for the past two decades."
Trump himself has been very vocal on the campaign trail about the mounting accusations against him, calling the women who have accused him of groping, unwanted kissing and sexual harassment "horrible, horrible liars" while suggesting that their charges are potentially part of a "global" conspiracy to "rig" the election involving the New York Times — which published the accounts of two women earlier this week — and his opponent, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
In her interview with The Guardian, Heller said, "He can't claim we're all liars." The Guardian reported that two other people, an acquaintance and a relative at the event, that gave accounts backing up Heller's claim.
The Republican nominee's alleged treatment of women and the language he uses to describe them have been a major issue throughout the 2016 race. While allegations of improper sexual conduct have been made against him in the past, they have drawn renewed interest following the leak of a 2005 video from "Access Hollywood" in which Trump appeared to brag about sexually assaulting women.
During the second general election presidential debate, Trump said that his descriptions of grabbing and kissing women without consent was simply "locker room talk," and that he had not actually ever engaged in such activity. Some of the women who came forward this week said Trump's denial at the debate outraged them.
Trump has suggested that his accusers are lying — potentially seeking fame, fortune or interested in seeing his defeat on Election Day. He has even in some cases criticized their physical appearance, implying in some cases that his accusers are too unattractive for him to have assaulted them.
"Nothing ever happened with any of these women. Totally made up nonsense to steal the election. Nobody has more respect for women than me!," Trump tweeted on Saturday.
