Another woman is coming forward with accusations of sexual assault against Bill Cosby.  Former Las Vegas showgirl Katherine McKee, who was also the girlfriend of late entertainer Sammy Davis, Jr., says she was assaulted by the comedian during the 1970s.  Now 65 years old, McKee tells the "New York Daily News" it happened when she took Cosby up on an invitation to drop by his hotel room in Detroit after he asked her to buy some barbecue ribs. She said "He was a buddy.  He knew I was Sammy's girl," adding that the attack happened so fast - as soon as she walked through the door - and that there was a "different personality involved."  

McKee tells the "New York Daily News" she told a few friends about the encounter over the years but mostly kept it to herself.  She says she feels more emboldened to share her story now since so many others have shared similar allegations.  She also says she would be willing to take a lie detector test if necessary.  Cosby's attorneys continue to deny the allegations that have plagued the comedy icon over the past few months.  Cosby remains silent on the issue.
