Democrat Accused Of Sexual Harassment: Pelosi Knew And Did Nothing About It

Rep. Ruben Kihuen D-Nev. Erik Verduzco  Las Vegas Review-Journal

The chief of staff for Rep. Ruben Kihuen is searching for job opportunities for his staff following an allegation of sexual harassment against the Democratic congressman from Nevada, which has prompted calls for Kihuen's resignation. They didn't find anything, and they continued investing millions of dollars in my campaign.

"I do find it interesting that the [Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee], Leader [Nancy] Pelosi and Chairman Ben Ray Lujan - they knew about these allegations previous year", Kihuen said, according to ABC News on Tuesday.

Kihuen asserted in an ABC News interview that party leaders knew previous year about the woman's allegations of sexual misconduct, but did not take action against his campaign.

Kihuen apologized in a statement Friday. "I take this matter seriously as it is not indicative of who I am".

A freshman Congressman who has come under fire after sexual assault allegations is claiming party leadership knew of the complaints a year ago, and still supported his candidacy.

"Sadly, this is not the case".

Significant Movers of Yesterday: Exxon Mobil Corporation (XOM), HP Inc. (HPQ)
After $0.93 actual EPS reported by Exxon Mobil Corporation for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts 6.45% EPS growth. Argent has invested 0.33% in Amphenol Corporation (NYSE:APH). (NASDAQ:ADI). 481,025 are owned by Confluence Invest Management.

Democrat lawmakers denied knowing the allegations prior to the initial reports.

The DCCC spent at least $3.15 million in the 2016 race, according to campaign records, and sources insisted to ABC News that they would not have done so if the allegations were known at the time. "Leader Pelosi first learned of these allegations from BuzzFeed last week", Drew Hammill told ABC News.

Chief of Staff Peter Koltak sent out the resumes of most of the staffers in Kihuen's D.C. office to other Democratic offices on Tuesday, according to an email obtained by Politico. "We were presented with these disturbing facts for the first time last week, and the chair immediately called for his resignation".

If true, Kihuen's account would reflect poorly on Pelosi, who said over the weekend that she believed Kihuen's accuser.

Democratic leaders - as well as House Speaker Paul Ryan, a Republican - also called for the resignation of longtime Rep. John Conyers following multiple allegations of sexual harassment.
