CHICAGO, Oct. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Juanita Broaddrick, who says Bill Clinton raped her while he was campaigning for Governor of Arkansas, told AM560 "The Answer" hosts Dan Proft and Amy Jacobson, for Upstream Ideas, a media company based in Chicago under the leadership of Proft, that Hillary Clinton needs to be held accountable for her comments about the women who have accused her husband of sexual misconduct.
Broaddrick, a former nursing home administrator in Arkansas who worked on Clinton's campaign, claims the former president raped her in a hotel room in Little Rock in 1978.
She said she was speaking out because Clinton had tweeted that sexual abuse victims had a right to be heard and believed.
"I did not set out to do this; I did not start out supporting Donald Trump," Broaddrick said. "I was only responding to a tweet Hillary Clinton sent out about all victims of sexual abuse should come forward and be believed."
"That's why I tweeted when I did. Shame on her. Her of all people should not make that comment. And then after all that she removed 'you should be believed' from her website."
Broaddrick said she met Bill Clinton when he visited the nursing home she owned and managed. Later on a visit to Little Rock, she contacted him, believing he was genuinely interested in the problems facing the nursing home industry.
They agreed to meet in a hotel coffee shop, but then Clinton invited himself up to her room. In the room, Broaddrick claims he raped her, then afterward appeared to think it was "no big deal."
Before a fundraiser at a later date, Broaddrick said Hillary Clinton came up to her.
"She grabs my arm, very deliberately, and looks at me very angrily and says in a low voice that no-one else can hear, she says, 'Do you understand everything you do,'" Broaddrick claims.
Asked what she thought about Hillary Clinton's reported remark describing her husband's accusers as "rodeo queens," Broaddrick said, "It's degradable...she needs to be held accountable for all of the things she did to us."
