That's what Maria Ruskiewicz told me on "GMA" this morning. She is the third woman to allege that she was harassed by a Wisconsin district attorney — Ken Kratz –- who has admitted to sending sexual text messages to one of those women.

"A man like this has got a pattern of abusive behavior of his power," Ruskiewicz said.

"There is no way that we are the only three women out there," she added.

Ruskiewicz alleged that following a 2008 meeting with Kratz about a pardon for her drug conviction he began sending her text messages.

"I'm on vacation with my family. traverse city. all week so in between naps I thought I'd let you impress me the next couple days. lets see what you do,” read one message, according to Ruskiewicz.

Ruskiewicz said she was “freaked out” and was afraid her pardon would be at risk if she reported Kratz. She did not come forward until she saw yesterday's report on “GMA.”

Kratz’s lawyer told the Associated Press that he does know anything about Ruskiewicz and said Kratz is in therapy.
