A former congressional aide Friday accused Rep. Bobby Scott, D-Va., of sexually harassing her and claimed she was fired and blackballed from further work on Capitol Hill when she refused his advances.

Reese Everson, a former Congressional Black Caucus Fellow, alleged that Scott touched her leg and body without permission and promised to advance her career if she let him flirt with her.

Everson discussed her allegations on an episode of Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle" last month, but did not identify Scott as the lawmaker who allegedly harassed her.

At a press conference, Macherie Reese Everson, who goes by Reese, said that Scott touched her inappropriately on two occasions in 2013 and that he flirted with her.

Everson said that when she declined the overtures, she was "retaliated against" by being fired.

Everson said the conduct occurred when she was a Congressional Black Caucus Foundation fellow working in Scott's office
