Rep. Ruben Kihuen (D-Nev.) said Saturday that he will not seek reelection after facing accusations about sexual harassment.
🔸
Kihuen has been under fire after a former campaign staffer and a Nevada lobbyist both accused Kihuen of sexual harassment while he was a Democratic candidate and during his tenure as a state legislator.
🔸
"I want to state clearly again that I deny the allegations in question,” Kihuen said in a statement. "However, the allegations that have surfaced would be a distraction from a fair and thorough discussion of the issues in a reelection campaign. Therefore, it is in the best interests of my family and my constituents to complete my term in Congress and not seek reelection." - ELENA SCHNEIDER 📷: @gettyimages

    I wonder how many of these allegations are actually true? Do we live in a climate where someone can ruin another’s career just simply accusing them?

    @asconn521 its not about political party. It's about the circumstances and the facts. It's a term I reserve for people who are actually guilty, for people who have evidence, photos and witness testimony against them and those who have paid off accusers with or without tax payer money. And that happens to be dozens of Democrats at the moment. Roy Moore was falsely accused with zero evidence a few weeks before an important senate race. Huge difference, yet everyone fell for it. Where are his accusers now? You won't hear or see from them ever again, the election is over

    @spreadingcommonsense his accusers had come forward many times. They are suing him. He will settle rather than have the victims testify on the record.
