In an exclusive, state Rep. Susan Lynn spoke directly tonight about her sexual harrassment charges aqainst the new House Speaker elected as a puppet by outgoing House Speaker Jimmy Naifeh.

Lynn complained to her party leadership about her fellow Republican representative two years ago. She told NewsChannel 5 that she did not intend for the matter to be made public but just handled by the leadership.

"I will give you a week's pay just to see you naked," Speaker Kent Williams allegedly said to Lynn when he was just a representative.

The matter came to the public attention after Lynn says she was contacted by a blogger after Williams' ascension as Naifeh's puppet. She did not push it.
