DCCC chairman calls for congressman accused of harassment to resign

DCCC chairman calls for congressman accused of harassment to resign

A woman who worked on Nevada Rep. Ruben Kihuen's campaign a year ago claims she left her job because of repeated unwanted propositions for dates and sex, according to a story in BuzzFeed News.

She had worked on the campaign for around four months.

The woman, whose first name is Samantha, says that she was Kihuen's finance director during his 2016 congressional campaign. "Congressman Kihuen should resign", DCCC Chairman Rep.

"Across the nation, in every industry, fearless women are coming forward to share stories of harassment that must be heard", Pelosi said in a statement that came out shortly after midnight Saturday.

"Members and candidates must be held to the highest standard", Luján said.

On their way back to the campaign office that same night, Kihuen touched her thigh and asked her again whether she'd cheat on her boyfriend, she said.

The allegations against Kihuen are the latest allegations of harassment in Congress.

Kihuen's office released this statement to BuzzFeed News: "The staff member in question was a valued member of my team". He did not deny any of the allegations in the story. "I sincerely apologize for anything that I may have said or done that made her feel uncomfortable", Kihuen's office said in a statement.

Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nev., a political ally of Kihuen's, said she supports a "full, fair and expedient" investigation into his behavior.

She left the campaign trail in April 2016, and Kihuen went on to defeat Republican incumbent Cresent Hardy. In recent weeks, members of both parties have faced allegations against male members, and ethics investigations were opened into two Democrats, Rep. John Conyers of MI and Sen. "The young woman's documented account is convincing, and I commend her for the courage it took to come forward".

He later added a statement saying, "But I want to make it clear that I don't recall any of the circumstances she described". I was raised in a strong family that taught me to treat women with the utmost dignity and respect.
