This guy held out as much as possible, but the weight of the outcry over sexual harassment allegations finally done him in.
Politico says Rep. Ruben Kihuen will not seek re-election:
Rep. Ruben Kihuen (D-Nev.) won’t run for reelection, according to a Democratic source familiar with the Nevada congressman’s decision.
Kihuen came 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.
On Friday, the House Ethics Committee announced that it planned to open an investigation into the allegations.
He’s still denying the allegations but says it’s better if he steps down.
Like Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Texas), Ethics Committee probe of Rep. Ruben Kihuen (D-Nev.) continues as long as he remains in the House. Could speed up one or both "retirements" ahead of January 2019.— David Mark (@DavidMarkDC) December 16, 2017
Given that this guy was a “Dreamer” you know that the Dems had big plans for him. Looks like that’s all down the drain!
Here’s our story when the news of his sexual harassment first broke.
