The Committee on Ethics has begun an investigation into sexual harassment allegations against Rep. Ruben Kihuen.?

They said the fact the committee was investigating the allegations does not indicate any violation has occurred and that the committee would make no further public statements pending completion of its initial review.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Rep. Ruben Kihuen, D-Nev.

"The Committee is aware of public allegations that Representative Ruben Kihuen may have engaged in sexual harassment", according to an Ethics Committee statement. His former finance director told Buzzfeed in a December 2 story that Kihuen repeatedly propositioned her for dates and sex during the 2016 congressional campaign, offers she rejected.

Earlier this week, a second woman came forward alleging that Kihuen made inappropriate sexual advances toward her.

She said that the suit was later dropped, but that the allegations were enough for the "Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) to decide not to support our promising campaign".

Buzzfeed has reported that Kihuen, now finishing his first year in Congress, harassed a staff member on his 2016 political campaign, and on Thursday multiple outlets recounted an anonymous lobbyist's description of his unwanted advances.

Farenthold denied some of the allegations against him but has since apologized for language he admitted to using that he characterized as not appropriate.

"During my 10 years in the legislature, I dated several different women. Out of respect for their privacy, I won't discuss my communications or any other details of those relationships", he said.

Lawmakers from both parties have recently been ensnared in allegations of sexual misconduct, prompting the committee to launch a sweeping probe this month of all House members and their staff.

On Friday, Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., abruptly resigned over revelations that he'd asked two staff members to act as surrogates to have his child, offering one $5 million.

Last week, Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., retired weeks after former aides shared stories of habitual sexual harassment. Sen.

Two women have accused the Democrat of misconduct.
