EUGENE, Ore. (CBS Seattle/AP) – A Lane County man accuses an IRS agent of coercing him into having sex with her by threatening a tax penalty.
Vincent Burroughs filed a lawsuit in federal court in Eugene last week suing the federal government and Dora Abrahamson.
In the lawsuit Burroughs says Abrahamson contacted him in August 2011 about an audit. He says they subsequently flirted over the phone and by text messages, and at one point she sent a photo of herself in her underwear.
“She was sending me texts that she wanted to come out, give me massages because she needed to help me relax,” Burroughs said in an interview with KVAL-TV.
Burroughs says he initially resisted, but Abrahamson told him she could impose no tax penalty or a 40 percent penalty. He says they had sex at his home in September 2011, which caused a rift another relationship.
“Next think 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 added in the interview with the station.
Abrahamson declined to comment when she was contacted, the AP reports.
