Pelosi calls on Dem Rep. Ruben Kihuen to resign following sexual harassment allegations

“Across the nation, in every industry, brave 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. “In Congress, no one should face sexual harassment in order to work in an office or in a campaign. The young woman’s documented account is convincing, and I commend her for the courage it took to come forward.”…

The woman, who worked as a finance director on Kihuen’s 2016 campaign, told BuzzFeed News that when he was a candidate, Kihuen repeatedly made sexual advances towards her, including touching her thigh without consent and suggesting they get a hotel room while on the way to a campaign meeting. The woman soon after quit the campaign.
