Ethics Committee investigating claims against Kihuen

Nevada Rep. Ruben Kihuen won't seek re-election amid sex harassment allegations

Congressman will not seek relection amid misconduct probe

The Ethics Committee stressed in the statement that the initiation of an investigation did not indicate wrongdoing by Mr. Kihuen.

Kihuen, a 37-year-old freshman once seen as a rising star in the Democratic Party, has been under fire since BuzzFeed reported allegations that he'd made unwanted sexual advances toward a former campaign staffer. He had settled a sexual harassment claim with a former staffer for $84,000 and other aides accused him of creating a hostile workplace environment.

Kihuen has repeatedly denied the allegations and earlier this month said that he has no plans to resign but wouldn't say whether he plans to run for re-election in 2018.

Hours after Buzzfeed published the allegation on December 1, Rep. Nancy Pelosi called Samantha's account "convincing" and called for Kihuen's resignation. "Out of respect for their privacy, I won't discuss my communications or any other details of those relationships", Kihuen said in the statement. She wrote after the first accuser came forward that "the young woman's documented account is convincing, and I commend her for the courage it took to come forward". Six members of Congress have resigned or announced plans to retire since the beginning of October after facing such allegations. Ben Ray Lujan of New Mexico, and the top House Democratic Leader, Nancy Pelosi, urged Kihuen to resign shortly after BuzzFeed News reported allegations from a former campaign staffer who said Kihuen made multiple unwanted advances past year, prompting her to quit his campaign.
