Bill Clinton accuser Kathleen Willey to campaign against Hillary

A woman who alleges former President Bill Clinton sexually assaulted her will work for a group opposing his wife’s presidential bid.

Former White House volunteer Kathleen Willey is joining an organization campaigning against Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, according to Reuters.

{mosads}“This gives me more of an opportunity to get the message out to young voters who weren’t even born or don’t even remember what happened to the women who have suffered,” she told the news service.

Willey is joining the Rape Accountability Project for Education PAC, or RAPE PAC, as its paid national spokeswoman, Reuters reported Monday. She will give public remarks and appear in political advertisements detailing claims of Bill Clinton’s past sexual misconduct.

“They’re going to be confronted every day on radio, television, billboards,” Roger Stone, a Republican strategist formerly aligned with GOP front-runner Donald Trump who created and managed the organization, told Reuters. Stone originally created the PAC last year under the “Women against Hillary” moniker before changing its name last month, the news service reported.

Stone added that he has set up an online fundraising page for the former Clinton administration aide, who is facing foreclosure on her Virginia home this month.

Willey alleges that Bill Clinton groped her during a White House hallway encounter in 1993. Bill Clinton denied her charge during a 1998 deposition.

Republican White House hopefuls have wrestled with whether Bill Clinton’s past indiscretions are fair game before next November’s election.

Trump repeatedly criticized the former chief executive as “one of the great women abusers of all time” last year after Hillary Clinton challenged his past remarks regarding his female detractors.
