Rachel Crooks accused Trump of sexual misconduct — now she’s running for office. Crooks came forward with allegations in 2016, saying that Trump forcibly kissed her in 2005 while she was working in NYC’s Trump Tower.
“I think my voice should have been heard then, and I’ll still fight for it to be heard now…Americans are really upset with politics as usual and I want to be a voice for them.” Crooks stated in Cosmopolitan.
Crooks is running to be an Ohio State Representative to amplify voices that have been ignored are prove women are more than their #MeToo moment. She wants to create more jobs, support public education, and make sure everyone has access to healthcare.
“I think there will be a lot of people who see value in [my campaign]. But I hope more so because I’m a viable candidate rather than a participant in the #MeToo movement.”
Crooks is the Director of International Student Recruitment at Heidelberg University and is running in the 88th state district in Ohio — which voted for Trump in 2016. She’s optimistic, since her supporters are growing.
The Ohio House Dems tweeted, “We are so excited about Rachel’s candidacy for the Ohio House of Representatives. Rachel will be a phenomenal advocate for the people in Ohio’s 88th House district!”
