Pelosi Calls For Investigation Into Democratic Rep. Accused Of ‘Unwanted Sexual Encounter’

Today, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi will formally request that the House Ethics Committee investigate allegations that Rep. David Wu (D-OR) had non-consensual sexual contact with a friend’s teenage daughter. In the wake of the allegations, Wu’s office stated that he will not seek reelection, but it also claims that “he hasn’t done anything that rises to the level of requiring him to resign.”
