NATURAL ROUGH CUT (No reporter narration) STORY: Temple Taggart, a former Miss Utah who has accused Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump of groping her years ago, came forward on Friday (Oct. 28) to say she will not be silenced or intimidated by threats from Trump that he will suit his accusers after the Nov. 8 election. Taggert spoke to reporters during a news conference with attorney and feminist Gloria Allred, who said she will defend Taggert against any potential lawsuit if Trump were to file one. Trump's campaign was thrown into crisis when a 2005 video was released showing him bragging about groping and kissing women, prompting several prominent Republicans to announce they would not vote for him. Since then, at least 10 women have said Trump made unwanted sexual advances, including groping or kissing, in incidents from the early 1980s to 2007, all of which Trump has denied. Taggert's comments came on the same day that a former Miss Finland accused candidate of groping her in 2006 when she was representing the country in the Miss Universe beauty contest.
