House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said on Friday that Nevada Rep. Ruben Kihuen should resign after a report of a sexual misconduct.
Pelosi issued a statement after a woman told BuzzFeed that the Democratic congressman harassed her and made sexual advances during his 2016 congressional campaign.
“In Congress, no one should face sexual harassment in order to work in an office or in a campaign,” Pelosi said.
“The young woman’s documented account is convincing, and I commend her for the courage it took to come forward.
“In light of these upsetting allegations, Congressman Kihuen should resign.”
