PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – The federal prosecutor whose accusation of sexual harassment led U.S. Attorney for Oregon Amanda Marshall to resign told investigators he reported her behavior because it was interfering with his ability to eat, sleep and work.

Meanwhile, the Office of the Inspector General found evidence Marshall was asked several times to stop sending harassing messages, but continued.

The information was included in an Inspector General report obtained Thursday through a Freedom of Information Act request. Marshall apologized after a brief summary was released last month.

Marshall and the subordinate began a yearlong affair in August 2013. During the affair, the subordinate won a promotion. Marshall told investigators she delegated the decision to someone else because she was afraid she’d get sued by whichever applicant lost.

After the relationship ended, the subordinate said Marshall berated him at a concert, drove by his house multiple times and sent harassing messages.
