HOUSTON (FOX 26 / AP) - Democratic congressman Al Green of Texas says he resolved a decade-old dispute with a former employee "without payment of any money or transfer of any consideration of any kind."
Green issued a joint statement Monday with his former district director to address questions they say have arisen "in the present climate.
Members of Congress and other prominent figures have been accused of sexual misconduct.
Green and the former employee, Lucinda Daniels, say the 2008 dispute has "been absolutely resolved," adding that, "We are friends."
A lawyer for Daniels said in 2008 that Green forced her to have sex and threatened a lawsuit, prompting Green to threaten his own suit. Both allegations were later dropped and the pair said in a statement that the matter was resolved amicably and without payment.
