A Republican state lawmaker from Central Oregon says she was subjected to sexual harassment and pressured to engage in a "quid-pro-quo" arrangement via text message by longtime state Rep. Brad Witt, D-Clatskanie.
State Rep. Vikki Breese Iverson, R-Prineville, outlined those allegations Monday in a letter sent to House Speaker Tina Kotek, a Democrat. Breese Iverson has asked that Kotek remove Witt from each of the three legislative committees she and he both serve on.
