Fox Business Host Lou Dobbs Tweets Phone Number and Address of Donald Trump Sexual Assault Accuser

Jessica Leeds, the 74-year-old former traveling businesswoman who accused Donald Trump of sexually assaulting her three decades ago on a first-class flight to New York, is now the target of a high-reaching doxing campaign.

Fox Business host Lou Dobbs on Thursday retweeted Leeds’ phone number and address as indication of her ties to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign, according to Business Insider.

Dobbs has yet to delete his tweet, but the account he quoted no longer exists. With Leeds’ personal information, Dobbs added the caption, “This is the Dirtiest Campaign in our History” and several pro-Trump hashtags.

In a New York Times article published on Wednesday, Leeds recalled sitting next to the Republican presidential nominee on a first-class flight when 45 minutes after takeoff, Trump “lifted the armrest and began to touch her.”

Leeds said Trump “grabbed her breasts and tried to put his hand up her skirt.”

“He was like an octopus,” she added. “His hands were everywhere.”

Leeds’ account mirrors similar allegations made by several women after The Washington Post on Friday leaked audio of Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women to then-“Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush in 2005.

Trump sweepingly denied all allegations during his rally in Florida on Thursday:
