(Newser) – A woman who says Bill Clinton sexually assaulted her is now campaigning against Hillary Clinton. Kathleen Willey, who says Clinton groped her in an Oval Office hallway when she was a White House volunteer in 1993, will be a paid national spokesperson for an anti-Clinton PAC that will become active if Hillary Clinton gets the Democratic nomination for president, Reuters reports. The group, originally named Women Against Hillary but now called the Rape Accountability Project for Education PAC (RAPE PAC), is being put together by Roger Stone, a former advisor to Donald Trump who says he is still on good terms with Trump.

Stone says planning for the group is still in the early stages, but that the Clintons would "be confronted every day, on radio, on television, on billboards." Willey, who says Bill Clinton groped her when she tried to ask him for a paid position, says she would make sure her accusations get discussed in interviews, speeches, and political ads she'll participate in. Bill Clinton has denied Willey's accusations. Juanita Broaddrick and Paula Jones McFadden, who have also accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault, have also spoken up lately; Broaddrick says it's hypocritical of Clinton not to believe Bill Clinton's accusers if she truly thinks sexual assault victims have a "right to be believed."
