Congressman Kihuen Accused By 2nd Woman

14 Décembre 2017

A second woman has accused Nevada Rep.

A second woman has accused Nevada Democratic Congressman Ruben Kihuen of sexual misconduct, according to a report in the Nevada Independent. In others, he asked her to spend the night at his place. The woman, who asked to remain anonymous, said Kihuen touched her thighs and/or butt in three separate incidents, and sent her hundreds of sexually suggestive text messages.

The congressman neither confirmed nor denied the allegations against him in a statement to the Independent.

Kihuen repeatedly touched the women's legs or buttocks without her consent, the woman told the Nevada Independent.

She was inspired to come forward after his finance director on the 2016 campaign accused him of touching her thighs, hounding her for dates and making unwanted sexual advances.

BuzzFeed News reported on December 1 that Kihuen's former finance director had accused the 37-year-old lawmaker of unwanted sexual advances - and reported those allegations to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) - Luján, the DCCC chairman, immediately called for Kihuen to step down.

When the woman refused to answer the question, he responded that it "makes me sad" and "my day can't go on without knowing".

Kihuen previously said he intends to finish out his first term and claimed that Pelosi knew about the allegations against him during the campaign but supported him anyway.

"I do find it interesting that the DCCC, Leader Pelosi and Chairman Ben Ray Lujan - they knew about these allegations previous year", he said. "They looked into them".

When Kihuen announced his congressional campaign in 2015, he texted her, "I apologize.Can't talk to you like this anymore", adding, "I'm officially a congressional candidate again'".

Pelosi denied that accusation.
