H17 epstein accuser says leslie wexner aided sexual assault

One of the women who accused deceased serial sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein of attacking her told The Washington Post that she holds billionaire Leslie Wexner, the chairman and CEO of Victoria’s Secret’s parent company, responsible for what happened to her. Maria Farmer says she was staying at one of Wexner’s properties in Ohio in the summer of 1996 when Epstein and his associate Ghislaine Maxwell sexually assaulted her. Farmer was employed by Epstein at the time. She says when she tried to leave the house, Wexner’s security guards wouldn’t let her. Farmer first detailed her attack in an affidavit she submitted earlier this year as part of Epstein-related lawsuits, but her interviews with The Washington Post are the first time she’s publicly spoken about Leslie Wexner and his connection to Epstein.
