Samantha Berrier says her former boss, Oregon State Representative Matt Wingard pressured her for sex. Today, the 23-year-old former aide went public with her story first with KXL.
She's speaking out to try and help other women who may be in the same situation. While Wingard has apologized to his family, colleagues and constituents, Samantha say he's never told her that he was sorry.
Wingard's statement says the allegation was untrue. He's since left his leadership role and has announced he will not seek re-election in Wilsonville District 26.
