Is it any wonder to learn that Nancy Pelosi was actually well-aware of a Democrats’ sexual predator tendencies?
It shouldn’t be by now, given the fact that Pelosi has always been as shady as lefties get.
Nevada Rep. Ruben Kihuen, a leading Democrat, was accused by his campaign finance director of being sexually explicit, patting her thighs, and forcing the staffer to resign quickly after.
Pelosi asked that Kihuen resigns, triggering Kihuen to snap back at her and reveal a secret we weren’t aware of.
“I do find it interesting that the DCCC, Leader [Nancy] Pelosi and Chairman Ben Ray Lujan — they knew about these allegations last year,” Kihuen told ABC News Tuesday.
“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,” he added for reporters in front of Capitol Hill.
Pelosi gave a suitable counter-statement on Kihuen’s accuser this week, saying, “I commend her for the courage it took to come forward.”
A spokesman for Pelosi dropped all allegations about the Democrat being in the loop this whole time.
“Sadly, this is not the case. Leader Pelosi first learned of these allegations from BuzzFeed last week,” Drew Hammill told ABC News.
Kihuen stated that Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chair Ben Ray Luján, who asked for Kihuen’s resignation as well, stood by his side even though he was informed of what was happening ‘behind closed doors.’
“Congressman Kihuen’s statement is not true,” DCCC communications director, Meredith Kelly, told ABC News. “We were presented with these disturbing facts for the first time last week, and the chair immediately called for his resignation.”
In 2016, the DCCC spent roughly $3.15 million to sponsor their race, and as per sources, if a light was shed on the allegations sooner, everyone would have taken a step back to reevaluate their involvement in the campaign.
Kihuen didn’t agree with this viewpoint and explained he wasn’t considering stepping down.
“I’m not resigning,” the 37-year-old Democrat said. “I plan on continuing the job that I was elected to do by the people of the 4th congressional district.”
However, some Democrats surprised the party and actually asked for Pelosi’s resignation.
Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton wasn’t pleased with the way Pelosi reacted to sexual harassment claims against Rep. John Conyers.

Moulton stated that Pelosi “did not say the right things” and “didn’t respect the women who have brought forward these allegations” against Conyers during a “Meet the Press” interview.
“I’ve been calling for our leader to step down and allow a new generation of leaders to step up and lead our party forward for a long time. But what I don’t want to do is distract from the fact that this is a very serious issue,” the Massachusetts Democrat pointed out.
