According to the POST, a 26 year-old clerical worker who was working for a construction company located in the Speaker's office building in Amherst described a series of unwelcome sexual advances by Wilkins. They included him "groping and pinning her against office furniture."
Wilkins continues to deny the groping allegation is true. Yet, he doesn't deny he paid at least $100,000 to require his alleged victim to keep silent on the matter.
