CLATSKANIE, Ore. — A woman who was repeatedly flashed by the husband of a northern Oregon city mayor has filed a lawsuit against the city for defamation.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (http://bit.ly/2bZ17Pd ) that the woman says in her lawsuit that Clatskanie Mayor Diane Pohl, her husband Ray Pohl and the Clatskanie city manager spread rumors the woman was having an affair with Ray Pohl after he was arrested for exposing himself to her.

Ray Pohl pleaded guilty to two counts of public indecency in connection to a September 2015 arrest for exposing himself to the woman over the course of 2 ½ years.

The woman is suing for $350,000, saying the rumors cost her business at her coffee stand.

City officials say they have not seen the lawsuit and cannot comment.
