I thought that a hairdresser accused him of reaching under her skirt and groping her, not raping her.
Sen. Daniel K. Inouye (D-Hawaii) denied new allegations of sexual harassment made by nine women who telephoned a state lawmaker, most without giving their names.
The allegations follow public accusations against Inouye, 68, last month by his former hair stylist, Lenore Kwock, who said Inouye sexually assaulted her 17 years ago.
Kwock called Inouye's behavior both a sexual "attack" and a sexual "assualt." The only thing I rememeber at the time was the phrase "sexual assault." I don't recall any further details. [She also claimed he repeatedly sexually "harassed" her over a period of years; again with few details of what constituted the harassment.]
