On Saturday, American porn star and sex educator Jessica Drake came forward as the 14th woman to accuse Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump of sexual harassment or assault.

"[In 2006], I was working for Wicked Pictures, an adult film company, at a golf tournament in Lake Tahoe," Drake said during a press conference seated next to attorney and Hillary Clinton supporter Gloria Allred, who also represents two other Trump accusers, Summer Zervos and Karena Virginia. "He flirted with me and invited me to walk along the golf course with him, which I did. During that time, he asked me for my phone number, which I gave to him. Later that evening, he invited me to his room. I said I didn't feel right going alone, so two other women came with me."

At the time of the alleged encounter and subsequent sexual misconduct, Trump had been married to Melania Trump for less than a year.

"When we entered the room, he grabbed each of us tightly in a hug and kissed each one of us without asking permission,” Drake continued. “He was wearing pajamas. A bodyguard was also present. He asked me about details on my job as an adult film star — about shooting porn, and he also asked us about our personal relationships and whether we were married or single. We answered his questions. It felt like an interview. About 30 or 45 minutes later, we left his room."

She claims that Trump later called her to ask, “'What do you want? How much?” and then to offer her $10,000 for sex. Drake, who called Trump a “sexual assault apologist” during Saturday’s press conference, went on to say that “this is not acceptable behavior for anyone, much less a presidential candidate.”

“I understand that I may be called a liar or an opportunist, but I will risk that in order to stand in solidarity with women who share similar accounts that span many, many years,” she said in her prepared remarks.

The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

Earlier on Saturday, Trump vowed at a campaign rally to pursue legal action against his accusers as soon as the election wraps up: “Every woman lied,” he said bluntly at his event in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. “All of these liars will be sued after the election is over.”

Drake has been outspoken on her views on national politics, consent, California’s condom law, and feminism.

During the first presidential debate between Clinton and Trump on September 26, Drake tweeted that she “might have just head butted [Trump]. kudos, Hillary.”

“I want to stop and frisk him upside his head. #WTF,” she also wrote on Twitter that night, after calling Trump a “buffoon.”

Drake also previously stated that her favorite scary movie is “anything with Trump” in it.

In an interview with BuzzFeed that ran late last year, Drake discussed consent, “yes means yes,” sex-ed, and the rape allegations against porn star James Deen, with whom she has worked.

“I have a tendency to believe a victim,” Drake also said in the interview.
