The ex-boyfriend of Oregon Republican Senate candidate Monica Wehby told police last year that she was “stalking” him but never pressed charges or tried to obtain a restraining order against her.
Oregon police reportedly questioned Wehby after, Andrew Miller, who Wehby had had a romantic relationship with, told police that he was worried Wehby had entered his home without his permission on April 3, 2013. Miller told police Wehby “showed up at his home uninvited about 5 times within the last 10 days.”
Miller, according to Politico, was considering getting a protective order against Wehby but never actually did.
In a statement, Wehby said she was unaware that a police report had been filed.
“The first time I ever learned of this report was this evening and there really isn’t much to it of consequence,” Wehby said in a statement Thursday evening, according to Politico. “A year ago I went through the process of concluding a relationship. That relationship ended amicably, and while I’m not pleased that it has been deemed newsworthy, I guess that is the cost of challenging the political status quo.”
Miller, who says he supports Wehby’s candidacy, told Politico that he regretted calling the police and that the two remain friends.
“There’s a lot of things that I like about Monica and respect about her,” Miller said.
Wehby is the favorite in Tuesday’s Republican primary to face Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR).
