Windsor, California, Democrat Mayor Dominic Foppoli resigned last week after accusations of sexual assault from multiple women, including “Teen Mom” actress Farrah Abraham.
“It is with a heavy heart that I am resigning, effective today. I have always and will always maintain that I did not engage in any non-consensual sexual acts with any woman,” the former mayor wrote in a statement.
“I recently learned that a woman in Palm Beach, Florida, is accusing me of non-consensual acts while I was visiting there in March of this year,” Foppoli added.
“She made her allegations after she learned of the April 8, 2021 San Francisco Chronicle story. I have no doubt she is making these allegations in an attempt to leverage the situation to her advantage,” he said.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Abraham accused Foppoli of sexually assaulting her in March while he was visiting Palm Beach.
Spencer Kuvin, attorney for Abraham, said, “This is not a ‘he said, she said’ situation. She has physical proof.”
Kuvin added, “We believe it is in felony territory.”
Foppoli has denied any wrongdoing, despite claims from a total of nine women in the report.
