Ruben Kihuen: 'I'm Not Resigning'

BuzzFeed News reported allegations Friday from a former campaign staffer who said Kihuen made multiple unwanted advances past year, prompting her to quit his campaign.

He added that he did not recall "the circumstances" the woman described.

"I'm not resigning", he told ABC.

Kihuen told ABC News that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), as well as Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Rep. Both had called on him to resign.

"They looked into them". They didn't find anything, and they continued investing millions of dollars into my campaign.

"I'm hoping to place them all here pretty quickly in other offices".

"I do find it interesting that the [Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee], Leader [Nancy] Pelosi and Chairman Ben Ray Lujan - they knew about these allegations a year ago", Kihuen said, according to ABC News on Tuesday.

Fourth District Representative Ruben Kihuen became the latest high profile man to face charges of sexual harassment.

Asked whether Kihuen should step down, Democratic Rep. Jim Clyburn said "I don't know, that's up to him."-The number three House Democrat acknowledged that the Nevada Democrat was facing allegations of misconduct and calls for step aside, so was Texas Republican Rep. Blake Farenthold, who said he plans to repay $84,000 in taxpayer money for a settlement reached through a former aide who accused him of improper conduct, but he didn't see the same move to force him out". Al Franken to resign.

And, she says, sexism and harassment are pervasive in the political circles she has traveled in. "I was elected to do a job for two years and that's what I intend to do", he said.

Over the weekend, former state Assemblywoman Lucy Flores - who ran against Kihuen in the 2016 Congressional primary - told Politico that she wasn't surprised by the allegations. Top Democrats have called on him to step down.

"Congressman Kihuen's statement is not true", DCCC communications director Meredith Kelly said. I was raised in a strong family that taught me to treat women with the utmost dignity and respect. Kihuen claimed otherwise, and said he does not plan to give in to demands to step down. He has served in Congress since 1965.

"I'm not resigning", Kihuen said in an ABC news video.

Another Democrat congressman is calling on a resignation as well - Pelosi's. Arizona Democrat Ruben Gallego, who helps lead the group as 2nd vice chair, said he "did not have enough information" to make the call.

"I'm not resigning", he said in an interview outside his Washington office, before saying it again: "I'm not resigning".
