Fall Creek, Ore., resident Vincent Burroughs has filed a lawsuit against an Internal Revenue Service agent and the U.S. Government as a whole, claiming that the agent sexually harassed him and pressured him into having a physical relationship with her in order to avoid paying a tax penalty.
According to KVAL, Burroughs claims that the IRS agent, Dora Abrahamson of Cottage Grove, called him out of the blue in August of 2011 and told him that he was going to be audited. He says at the time of the call, the two had never met and that he had no prior knowledge about the possibility of being audited.
In the months following the call, Burroughs says that Abrahamson began sending him flirtatious text messages - offering to give massages, requesting that the two of them meet up and even sending him racy photos of herself.
“She was sending me texts that she wanted to come out, give me massages because she needed to help me relax,” Burroughs said.
In September of 2011, things got even more intense. Abrahamson opted to forego the text messages and go with a more direct approach by allegedy showing up at Burroughs’ home wearing provocative attire.
“Next thing I know, she's at my gate, honking...so I opened my gate, she came into my property dressed exactly like she texted me,” Burroughs said.
The lawsuit against Abrahamson states: “She said that she could impose no penalty, or a 40% penalty, and that if he would give her what she wanted, she would give him what she needed.”
After hearing that, Burroughs had sex with Abrahamson in his home that night.
Burroughs is seeking restitution from the U.S. government for employing Abrahamson as well as not properly enforcing the privacy act.
