“Certainly there was nothing intimate,” said Perales, a former Beavercreek mayor and Greene County Commissioner. “If there was any touching it was all flirtatious, if that. It was sexting. Let me make it very clear to you that I never ever sent any pictures of any sort.”
Smith, who is making her first run for public office, said Perales’s contacts with her went well beyond flirting, though she never filed a complaint with police. She denied sending topless photos or sexually oriented texts.
