The top House Democrat has called on Rep. Ruben Kihuen of Nevada to resign from Congress after a former aide accused the lawmaker of making repeated sexual advances toward her during his 2016 campaign.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said in a statement Saturday that she thought the young woman’s account — originally reported by BuzzFeed News — was convincing.

The woman, who was identified only as Samantha, told the outlet that Kihuen had repeatedly propositioned her for dates and sex despite her rejections. On two occasions, she said, he touched her thighs without consent.
"In light of these upsetting allegations, Congressman Kihuen should resign," Pelosi said in the statement. "In Congress, no one should face sexual harassment in order to work in an office or in a campaign."
Kihuen, 37, said he didn't remember the incidents with the aide, whom he described as a "valued member" of his team. Kihuen is a former state lawmaker and was sworn in in January as the first Latino to represent Nevada in the U.S. House of Representatives.
