She is calling for the firing of the Democratic operative that uncovered the harassment reports against her from ex-boyfriends and ex-husbands.
Wehby calls it the "politics of personal destruction" but Brent Walth, managing editor of Willamette Week says, it's part of running for public office.
"It's our job in the media to look. It's also our job in the media to decide when and where to publish things. Whether you are Republican or Democrat, conservative or liberal, if something is in the public record, you can expect it's going to come out. And it's not persuasive to blame your opponent."
Wehby's campaign says a former Senate staff member for Merkley, Jamal Raad, is the source of the opposition research.
He will now serve as the Merkley campaign's communications director.
