So when Kinder made his proposition, she says, she didn't just turn him down — she shot him down. "I said, 'Oh, honey, I don't think my girlfriend would like that!'" He was out of the bar in less than an hour; she hasn't heard from him since.

As for that famous photo, she's mystified as to how it got out. She took it, she says, and she e-mailed it to him before deleting it. Kinder, she says, is the only person she e-mailed it to; she has no idea how it wound up being sent to Riverfront Times.

Chapman says she's speaking out because she's disgusted by Kinder's behavior, both in the mid-'90s and today. "He uses his political business card to get women," she says.

Peter Kinder and Tammy Chapman: She says the photo was taken earlier this year, when the lieutenant governor walked into the south-city bar where she was working.
