Woman suing Tom Schedler describes decade-long 'nightmare' in first interview: 'I had told him to leave me alone'


The woman accusing Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler (R) of sexual harassment described her longtime boss as a "nightmare" and a "creep," telling an interviewer on Friday that she has felt like "a prisoner in a cave" for the past decade.

In her first interview since filing a lawsuit, the woman, Dawn Ross, said she tried to be Schedler's friend and hoped "he would get that message, because most people do." She said she was disgusted when Schedler claimed publicly that the two had a "consensual sexual relationship."

"I just never was" interested, she told Louisiana Radio Network. "I had told him to leave me alone multiple times. I know I said more than that."

Ross' comments came the day after The Advocate published a series of sexually suggestive emails Schedler sent to Ross over several years. The emails showed he would make advances toward his onetime secretary during the course of regular business exchanges. He also invited her on cross-country trips and propositioned her with wine and hand-written Christmas and birthday cards.
