Women Detail Sexual Allegations Against President Trump in News Conference

“I just watched Sen. “The President has spoken about this multiple times throughout the campaign and has denied all of those allegations,” Sanders said in November. 21, 2017, in Washington, DC. Allred on Friday called on Trump to promise not to file a complaint against those who accused him of abusive sexual behavior, waving the threat of counter-prosecution. And I think any woman who has felt violated or felt mistreated in any way, they have every right to speak up.”

The firsthand accounts come as a public conversation on sexual assault and harassment — spurred by a series of accusations against high-profile figures in politics, Hollywood and journalism — rages throughout the United States. Trump traveled to Florida — just miles from the Alabama border — to rally support for the Senate candidate and has repeatedly tweeted about the need to back Moore and keep his Democratic opponent Doug Jones out of the Senate. The calls come days after Sen. 11, 2017. Two Democratic senators — Cory Booker of New Jersey and Jeff Merkley of Oregon — called for Trump to resign over the multiple accusations of sexual harassment and sexual assault against him. 11, 2016. At least 13 women have come forward with accusations against Trump ranging from sexual harassment and misconduct to sexual assault, including unwanted kissing and groping. A group of women who have publicly accused President Donald Trump of sexual harassment and assault detailed their accounts of being groped, fondled and forcibly kissed by the businessman-turned-politician at a news conference on Monday. Rachel Crooks speaks as one of the accusers of President Donald Trump during a news conference with attorney Gloria Allred at the Women’s March In Washington on Jan. The accusers include Temple Taggart, the former Miss Utah USA who accused Trump of kissing her on the lips in 1997; Mindy McGillivray, who accused Trump of grabbing her butt at his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida in 2003 and Crooks. The only reason I am here today is that this offender is now the President of our country,” said Rachel Crooks, a former Bayrock Group receptionist who accused Trump of kissing her on the mouth without her consent in 2005. US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Sunday that women who accuse a man of inappropriate sexual behavior — including Trump — “should be heard.”
“Well, I mean, you know, the same thing, is women who accuse anyone should be heard,” Haley said when asked specifically about Trump’s accusers. Al Franken do the honorable thing and resign from his office,” Booker said. Trump has vehemently denied the accusations and while his top spokeswoman wouldn’t go on the record Monday, Sarah Sanders has previously said the White House’s position is that all the women are lying. And I think we heard from them prior to the election. Trump has stood by Moore despite the accusations and has raised questions about the women who have leveled the charges. Unfortunately, this behavior isn’t rare in our society, and people of all backgrounds can be victims. But not all those close to the President have been so dismissive. Brave New Films, a production company that realized a film on the women who have accused Trump of sexual assault, will host the event. “Yeah, we have been clear on that from the beginning and the President has spoken on it,” Sanders said in October. Trump. Trump opened the floodgates of accusations against him during the 2016 campaign when he downplayed the release of a 2005 “Access Hollywood” video that showed him saying he was able to “grab them by the p**sy” because he was famous.

The renewed focus on Trump’s accusers comes as Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore fights to win a reliably Republican seat, despite accusations he pursued relationships with teenagers, including molesting a 14-year-old and sexually assaulting a 16-year-old when he was in his 30s. “My question is, why isn’t Donald Trump doing the same thing — who has more serious allegations against him, with more women who have come forward. All the alleged incidents took place prior to his assuming the presidency. Al Franken, a Minnesota Democrat, announced his intention to resign over accusations of sexual assault. The fact pattern on him is far more damning than the fact pattern on Al Franken.”

Celebrity Chef Mario Batali Steps Away from Business, TV Show Amid Sexual Misconduct Allegations

But he said, “although the identities of most of the individuals mentioned in these stories have not been revealed to me, much of the behavior described does, in fact, match up with ways I have acted.”
“We built these restaurants so that our guests could have fun and indulge, but I took that too far in my own behavior,” he said. The B&B spokesperson said Batali was counseled, reprimanded and required to undergo additional sexual harassment training. “Food Network takes matters like this very seriously,” the network said. The story did not name them. A spokesperson said that Batali and the owners are reviewing that role. The group added: “We have strong policies and practices in place that address sexual harassment. “We take these allegations very seriously,” B&B said in a statement, which was first provided to Eater. Related: The media men who have been accused of sexual misconduct
Batali did not refer to the Eater investigation in his statement. Eater’s report included four accounts of women who claimed that Batali “touched them inappropriately in a pattern of behavior that appears to span at least two decades.”
Chef Mario Batali looks on at the White House in Washington, DC, on Oct. “I apologize to the people I have mistreated and hurt,” Batali said. An employee at one of the group’s restaurants reported “inappropriate behavior,” according to the spokesperson, who would not disclose the name of the restaurant or details about the incident. “ABC takes matters like this very seriously as we are committed to a safe work environment. 40.732354

The B&B spokesperson said the company also investigated a complaint about Batali’s behavior in October. “We have asked Mario Batali to step away from The Chew while we review the allegations that have just recently come to our attention,” the spokesperson said. An ABC spokesperson told CNNMoney on Monday that he is also stepping away from that production. Batali has also been a host on ABC’s “The Chew” for the past several years.

The women, some of whom worked for Batali, claimed he had groped them, according to Eater. I take full responsibility and am deeply sorry for any pain, humiliation or discomfort I have caused to my peers, employees, customers, friends and family.”
That statement was first made public early Monday in an investigation on Eater, the restaurant news website. “That behavior was wrong and there are no excuses. After that report, he volunteered not to go to the restaurant mentioned in the complaint. It was the only complaint B&B has ever received about Batali, the company said. Batali said in a statement to CNNMoney that he is “deeply sorry” for any pain or humiliation he has caused. He remains an owner of the group, which he founded with restaurateur Joe Bastianich. While we are unaware of any type of inappropriate behavior involving him and anyone affiliated with the show, we will swiftly address any alleged violations of our standards of conduct.”
And Food Network, which aired Batali’s show “Molto Mario” from 1996 to 2004, said it is shelving plans to bring back the program. “We pride ourselves on being a workplace for our employees where they can grow and deliver great service with equal opportunity and free from any discrimination.

$34 Million Spent Battling the Thomas Fire in Ventura County as California Wildfire Costs in 2017 Top $10 Billion

9, 2017. If it’s 162 or higher, that’s considered extreme. $34 million
That’s how much money has already been spent fighting the Thomas Fire, according to the Ventura County.

Southern California Edison said that outages and surges had left up to 85,000 customers without electricity. Ferocious Santa Ana winds are literally adding fuel to the fires, one week after the colossal Thomas Fire started. Here are the staggering numbers behind the blazes:
230,000 acres
That’s the size of the Thomas fire, the largest fire ripping across Southern California. It’s torched an area larger than all of New York City.

‘We Struggle Enough as It Is’: Parents Call on Congress to Keep Funding Children’s Health Insurance Program

Hazel Hoffman is only five years old, but her medical bills are already through the roof. She is a paralegal, and he is a driver at a warehouse. Currently under CHIP, they pay only $30 a month in premiums for their 16-year-old son. Her medications alone cost more than $1,500 a month. “The uncertainty created a lot of anxiety,” said Mark Berger, 47. Galens works in customer service at a small tech company. Related: More than a million children could lose their health insurance next year
CHIP covers about nine million children whose parents usually earn too much to qualify for Medicaid but not enough to afford private health coverage. Gwen Wurm, does a checkup on D’Acquel Emmanuel Sema, 13-moths-old, as he is held by his mother, Adelaide Sema at the University of Miami Pediatric clinic on Oct. “We each work 40-plus hours a week. Then-U.S President George W. Adding Noah to her policy at work would cause Kristina Turtura’s monthly premiums to jump by more than $200, and they’d be responsible for co-payments when he gets care. Colorado has already sent a letter to parents saying the program may end on Jan. Lawmakers on both sides of the political aisle say they want to continue the program but are arguing over how to pay for it. The CHIP plan has no monthly premium and only a small co-pay for care. “I can’t even bring myself to imagine how devastating this would be.”
Even families who consider themselves middle class say they can’t afford to pay for health insurance for their kids. Hope Galens started signing her children up for CHIP soon after the program began 20 years ago. Some 16 states project they’ll exhaust their funds by the end of January, while another 20 states and the District of Columbia say they can last either until February or March, according to a recent report by the Kaiser Family Foundation. Now, her younger son, Perry, depends on it to cover the five medications he takes for a metabolic condition. A typical family of four, with children covered by CHIP, earns no more than $62,000 a year. Hazel’s mother, Rachael, can only afford the care her daughter needs because she is in the Children’s Health Insurance Program, known as CHIP. Hoffman, a receptionist at a preschool, would have to pay $500 a month for her employer’s plan, which would only cover half of the cost, leaving them “absolutely no money” for food or basic necessities. Sometimes families really need just a little extra help to ensure that their child is properly taken care of.”
While many parents have been left wondering how the stalemate in Congress will affect their families, Mark and Allison Berger recently learned that their two young daughters could lose their CHIP coverage in less than two months. Related: CHIP funding is latest victim of DC dysfunction
The Bergers — he is a freelance commerical artist and she’s a preschool teacher — don’t know how much it would cost to add their daughters to their Affordable Care Act policy, but they fear it will be a serious financial blow. (Credit: Joe Raedle/Getty Images)
“It’s really scary that your child’s life is a game of football to people,” said Hoffman, 30, who lives in Orland Park, Illinois. 3, 2007, in Miami, Fla. But many are expected to run out of money soon. “We struggle enough as it is,” said Galens, 55, who lives in Clifton Springs, New York, and has two older children. The couple expect they would no longer be able to save for retirement or for the kids’ college, and they’d have to pull their daughters out of after-school sports and summer camps. Hoffman, however, is terrified that Hazel may lose this vital coverage. Her husband, Stephen, owned a dairy farm but recently began working at a veterinary clinic after selling the cows. This will wreak havoc on those state budgets. It picks up the entire cost of Hazel’s medications, hospitalizations and lab work with no monthly premium. Funding for the federal program ran out on Sept. Utah and Oklahoma have posted notices on their websites that warn that coverage may end or be reduced. For parents, however, only one thing matters — that their children have health insurance that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford. The Boulder, Colorado, family received a letter from the state saying they should start looking for private coverage and address any medical care the girls need before February. Some states will terminate their plans once the money is gone. Take Kristina and David Turtura, who live with their 6-year-old son, Noah, in Liverpool, New York. “We aren’t sitting home sponging off the system,” she said. Since the federal funding expired, states have been able to keep their CHIP programs going by using their unspent allotments and by receiving grants from the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. The little girl suffers from a form of epilepsy that has sent her to the hospital multiple times with severe seizures. Other states must continue insuring the children, but will have to foot more of the bill themselves. CHIP costs them $60 a month and has no co-pays. Bush vetoed a bipartisan bill that would have dramatically expanded children’s health insurance through the Children’s Health Insurance Program , or CHIP, a joint state-federal effort that subsidizes health coverage for 6.6 million people, mostly children. University of Miami Pediatrician, Dr. Bringing Perry onto her work insurance would eat up nearly an entire paycheck, Galens said. 31 if Congress doesn’t reauthorize the funding. 30, and Congress has yet to reauthorize it. “I won’t have what I want to have for my family.”
