A woman who says she worked for US congressman John Conyers for more than a decade has accused him of touching her inappropriately.
Elisa Grubbs claims Conyers slid his hand up her skirt and rubbed her thighs while she was sitting next to him in the front row of a church.
Grubbs made the allegation in an affidavit released by her lawyer, Lisa Bloom. She is the cousin of another accuser, Marion Brown.

Conyers is expected to make an announcement about his political future on Tuesday.
The 88-year-old Democrat is the longest-serving current House member and has repeatedly denied claims he mistreated staffers.
Conyers' lawyer Arnold Reed told the Detroit Free Press Grubbs' allegations are "another instance of tomfoolery from the mouth of Harvey Weinstein's (lawyer)."
