Trump Accuser Has Ties to El Paso
The latest woman to accuse presidential candidate Donald Trump of sexual misconduct has an El Paso connection.
Adult film star Jessica Drake, the 11th woman to claim Trump made unwanted sexual advances on her, spent a few years in the Sun City more than a decade ago.
Born Angela Patrice Heaslet in San Antonio, Texas, in 1974, Drake bounced around the state calling several cities home for a while, including El Paso. According to various internet sources, while living here she attended EPCC and the University of Texas-El Paso in the late ‘90s while working as a “house dancer” at an unnamed club.
[She] was a dancer in an El Paso strip club that often featured porn stars, and she would watch them and think that she could do it better. She spoke with friends who were involved in the adult-film industry and eventually decided to give it a try herself.”
She dropped out of UTEP soon after and moved to Los Angeles sometime around 1999.
Drake alleges Trump forcibly hugged and kissed her in 2006, then offered her $10,000 for sex. She is being represented by well-known woman's rights attorney Gloria Allred.
The Trump campaign denies the accusations, calling them "totally false and ridiculous," adding "Mr. Trump does not know [her], does not remember [her] and would have no interest in ever knowing her."
