ROSEBURG, Ore. - In response to an online video that surfaced on YouTube, Senator Jeff Kruse denied he was masturbating and said he was trying to stop a crime.

The YouTube video, posted last year, shows Kruse chatting with a woman.

According to the Oregonian, Kruse said he was talking with women online when he suspected they were trying to scam him.

Kruse told police he was not touching himself, but pretending to masturbate in order to collect evidence.

Last month, two senators accused Kruse of inappropriately touching them. Several other women also filed complaints.
