Intern in GOP State Rep. Sex Scandal: ‘I am Not a Wild Woman on a Hunt for Men’

August 1, 2009

(ChattahBox)—McKensie Morrison the former 22-year old legislative intern to Tennessee Republican lawmaker, Sen. Paul Stanley, 47, admits she has made mistakes in her life, with perhaps her biggest so far; a sexual relationship with her married boss, Sen. Stanley. The hypocritical Stanley however, evoked his relationship with God and sought to portray himself as a victim, by “blaming the girl” suggesting that the young college student was involved in a plot to blackmail him.

Stanley was forced to resign, when Stanley’s sexual relationship with Morrison became public, after her spurned boyfriend Joel Watts allegedly tried to blackmail Stanley with a disc of provocative photos of Morison, taken by Stanley in his Nashville apartment. Stanley then contacted the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) and went undercover to nab Watts for extortion.

Since then, Watts has appeared on numerous media outlets, claiming he is innocent, keeping the story alive and Stanley has suggested Morrison was part of the extortion scheme. The TBI says there is no evidence that she was involved and there are no pending charges against her.

“I haven’t been charged with anything because I had nothing to do with it. The truth will ultimately come out in the end, and I think that we will all pay for our mistakes and our choices,” said Morrison.

After listening to numerous details reported inaccurately in the media and upon hearing allegedly false statements emerge from the lips of Stanley, Morrison decided to come out and speak to set the record straight.

In an exclusive on-air interview with WSMV Channel 4, Morrison explains she was manipulated over time, to become sexually involved with Stanley. “I am not a bad person. I am not an extortionist. I am not a wild woman on a hunt for men. I’m a normal girl. I’m 22 years old,” said Morrison.

Her relationship with her boss, Stanley slowly began to change. “It was instead of, ‘Can you run this down to the copy machine?’ and ‘Can you get me a cup of coffee?’ to ‘Can you pick up my dry cleaning?’ and ‘Do you need some extra money? Can you clean my apartment?'” said Morrison.

When the situation with Stanley began spiraling out of control, Morrison says she ended their relationship. “I made a stupid decision. I made a bad mistake,” said Morrison. “I specifically sat down and said, ‘I cannot do this anymore. I don’t want to do this.’ I know that Sen. Stanley has a family. I have a family. People look up to him as a figure. He’s a senator.”

When her boyfriend first texted Stanley in an alleged blackmail scheme, Stanley asked Morrison to text him back. “Sen. Stanley contacted me and said (Watts is) asking for an apology. ‘ What does he really want?’ and I said, ‘I don’t know.’ I saw the text message said X news company is willing to give $7,500 for the disc of pictures. (Stanley) said, ‘$7,500? Tell (Watts) I’ll give him $8,000,'” said Morrison.

According to Morrison, that was the last time she heard from Stanley about her boyfriend’s text messages, until the TBI showed up, taking her cell phone, ID, parking permit and escorting her out of the building. She was told not to speak to anyone about the situation.

She said she was “disappointed” in Stanley’s allegations claiming she was involved in an extortion plot, but says she will pray for Stanley and his family.

Morrison is an attractive, bright young woman who attends Austin Peay State University, earning straight As, with her whole future ahead of her and she hopes that she can overcome her mistakes and move on with her life. “I feel like I can move on. I feel that I’ve learned. I’m hurt, and I’m beat up, and I’m emotionally scarred, but all we have is the future and hope,” said Morrison.

Meanwhile, Stanley an Evangelical Christian who serves on the Administrative Board of the Christ United Methodist Church, sent out an email apologizing to his constituents:

“I humbly ask your forgiveness for my indiscretion. The public criticism I have received thus far is well deserved. My future course is uncharted, and I will rely exclusively on prayer and the advice and input of my wife.”
