Rachel Crooks is running for a state house seat in Ohio after coming forward with accusations that President Donald Trump once accosted her while she was waiting for an elevator in Trump Tower.

“A woman I don’t know and, to the best of my knowledge, never met, is on the FRONT PAGE of the Fake News Washington Post saying I kissed her (for two minutes yet) in the lobby of Trump Tower 12 years ago. Never happened!” Trump tweeted Tuesday. “Who would do this in a public space with live security cameras running. Another False Accusation. Why doesn’t @washingtonpost report the story of the women taking money to make up stories about me? One had her home mortgage paid off. Only @FoxNews so reported…doesn’t fit the Mainstream Media narrative.”

Crooks took the James Comey approach of calling out the president.

“Lordy, I hope there are tapes,” Comey famously said, after Trump threatened to release tapes of their conversation.

“Please, by all means, share the footage from the hallway outside the 24th-floor residential elevator bank on the morning of January 11, 2006,” Crooks tweeted from her campaign account. “Let’s clear this up for everyone. It’s liars like you in politics that have prompted me to run for office myself.”
