An adult-film actress Saturday accused Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump or someone acting on his behalf of offering her $10,000 and the use of his private jet if she would agree to come alone to his hotel suite at night after a golf tournament in Lake Tahoe in 2006.

Jessica Drake, who spoke at a news conference alongside attorney Gloria Allred, said she met Trump while working a booth at the tournament for her employer, Wicked Pictures. Trump then invited her and two other women to his suite in the evening, where, while wearing pajamas, Drake said he kissed the women each in turn without their permission.

According to Drake, after the group left his suite, a man called and asked her to return alone. When she declined, Drake said she was then called by Trump, who asked her to come to his suite for dinner and a party. “What do you want?” she said he asked. “How much?”

Later, she said Trump, or a man calling on his behalf, called again, this time with the monetary offer, which she said she declined.

Trump’s campaign issued a statement calling Drake’s account “totally false and ridiculous.”

Drake is the 11th woman to have spoken publicly about unwanted sexual advances from Trump since he insisted he had never engaged in such conduct at the second presidential debate on Oct. 9.

He had been asked whether he ever did so after a 2005 video emerged of Trump bragging to “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush about having groped women.

Trump has denied the claims of the women, accusing them of working in concert with the campaign of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and the media to hurt him.

“Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign,” Trump said at a rally in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on Saturday. “Total fabrication. The events never happened. Never. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over.”
