Woman claims Rep. Kihuen made repeated unwanted propositions

A woman who worked as the finance director for Democratic Nevada congressman Ruben Kihuen's 2016 campaign told BuzzFeed that Kihuen made several unwanted sexual advances toward her.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi called on U.S. Rep. Ruben Kihuen, D-Nev., to resign after a report emerged that he sexually harassed an aide during his 2016 congressional campaign.

"I sincerely apologize for anything that I may have said or done that made her feel uncomfortable", Kihuen said.

This is a developing story.

The accuser, identified only as Samantha by Buzzfeed, said Kihuen followed her to her vehicle after a fundraiser on February 6, 2016, and told her, "You look really good, I'd like to take you out if you didn't work for me".

Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Ben Ray Lujan says House members and candidates should be held to the highest standard, and anyone guilty of sexual harassment or assault should not hold elected office.

Rose Bowl powerhouse matchup announced: Oklahoma vs. Georgia New Year's Day 2018
The other semifinal will pit No. 1 Clemson, the ACC champion, against No. 4 Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, also on New Year's Day. Just don't make it too much bigger than six teams, or you risk robbing the regular season of tightrope-walking panic.

The DCCC is now calling on Kihuen to resign from Congress. The young woman's documented account is convincing, and I commend her for the courage it took to come forward.

The congressman released a statement to the website that expressed regret to the woman for making her feel uncomfortable.

The California lawmaker said she spoke to the 37-year-old congressman Friday night.

"The staff member in question was a valued member of my team", Kihuen wrote.

Congressional leaders are under pressure to respond to a national outcry against sexual harassment.

Michael J. McDonald, chairman of the Nevada Republican Party, called allegations leveled at Kihuen "appalling and disgusting".
