The allegations were outlined in a lawsuit filed by Funkhouser against Lab One, and in a complaint to the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, according to the Star.
In the EOCC Complaint Funkhouser said Ramsey subjected him to 'unwelcome and inappropriate sexual comments and innuendos.' He said the inappropriate behavior started in September 2004 when he was working as a human resources manager at Lab One.
Emily's List also said they support Ramsey's decision to drop out of the race.
Ramsey was not a party in the 2005 lawsuit or settlement, but is referred to throughout court papers by her maiden name Andrea Thomas.
The federal lawsuit against Lab One was till pending in April 2006 when Ramsey retired from the company.
She said she retired because she didn't want to work for such a big company and wanted to spend more time with her children.
Funkhouser claims that when he wouldn't have sex with her, she started treating him differently.'In the office she completely ignored me and avoided having any contact with me,' he alleges in the lawsuit.
'Had those allegations, those false allegations, been brought against me directly, I would have fought to exonerate my name.
I never would’ve settled,' Ramsey wrote in Friday's.'I would have sued the disgruntled, vindictive employee for defamation.' Ramsey was not a party in the 2005 lawsuit or settlement, but is referred to throughout court papers by her maiden name Andrea Thomas.
Court Documents show that Funkhouser and Lab One, a company where Ramsey was executive vice president of human resources, agreed to dismiss the case after mediation in 2006, according to the Star.
Ramsey, from Leawood, Kansas, was one of a number of Democrats planning to challenge Republican Representative Kevin Yoder in the 2018 race in Kansas' Third District.
