Clinton rape accuser blasts 'tasteless' Trump for using her voice in campaign ad
A woman who has accused Bill Clinton of rape and been a vocal opponent of Hillary Clinton's criticized Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's campaign on Sunday for using her words in a political attack ad in a new interview.
Juanita Broaddrick was 35-years-old when she met then-Arkansas Attorney General Bill Clinton in 1978. Clinton was 31-years-old at the time when Broaddrick claims he raped her in a Little Rock hotel room.
Shortly after coming forward with her account of the alleged attack in 1999, Broaddrick sat down for an interview with Dateline. Trump's campaign used an emotional line from the segment in an Instagram attack ad against his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton this May.
"I was really hurt," she told BuzzFeed News of the campaign using her words. "You take the most awful part of my Dateline interview, where I'm crying, trying to relate what had happened to me, and put that in a campaign ad? I thought it was very tasteless."
Even though she's hurt that she was never asked permission, Broaddrick said she's planning to vote for Trump in November.

Broaddrick had removed herself from public life since coming forward with allegations during the end of Clinton's second term in office. She broke that silence in the typical modern way -- on Twitter -- last fall after Hillary Clinton began speaking about sexual assault and how survivors had "the right to be believed."
When Broaddrick was approached by lawyers working for Paula Jones in 1997, who was suing Clinton for sexual harassment, she said she didn't want to relive the experience or be involved.
Ultimately, Broaddrick signed an affidavit denying that Clinton had ever raped her.
"I signed it hoping to stay out of it," she told Buzzfeed.
