Dem. Rep. Ruben Kihuen, D-Nev., who unseated a Republican incumbent in November is facing sexual harassment charges. Nothing new, right? Nancy Pelosi has called on him to step down (as she has done with others such as John Conyers).
But Kihuen has stated that the charges against him (although he denies them) were well-known to Pelosi and the DNC long ago and that despite knowing of them, still invested $3 million to get him elected. He said:
“They looked into them. They didn't find anything, and they continued investing millions of dollars in my campaign. They went out there and campaigned for me.”
Is this the final proof (if any were needed) that Pelosi and the Dems do not actually care about allegations of sexual misconduct? And that all they really care about is getting power? It certainly seems so.
If what Kihuen says is true, and he really doesn't have a reason to lie, his career is over (in this torrid environment where every accusation is considered fact), shouldn't Pelosi be the one to step down? She did, after all, fund a “known sexual harasser's campaign and put women in danger.”
We need a real investigation into this to find the paperwork that shows the DNC was aware of the allegations. Will there be a single soul in the media who is brave enough to try and sink the DNC for putting women in harm's way?
Probably not. But remember Kihuen's words the next time Nancy denounces one of her own.
