Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was criticized for her response to a question from a reporter about a Democrat being accused of sexual harassment.
Here’s what she said:
“Representative Rueben Kihuen has signaled that he’s interested in revisiting his decision not to run again and he has a week to make a decision to file and I just want to get your reaction to that,” a reporter asked.
“Well, when he makes his decision, I’ll give you a reaction to it,” she said, laughing.
“Let’s see what he decides to do, OK?” she responded to another reporter asking a similar question. “I don’t mean to be rude in my response, but I don’t want to speculate on something that may or may not happen, OK?”
What is Kihuen accused of?
Rep. Kihuen (D-Nev.) said that he was not going to seek re-election after he was accused of sexual harassment from multiple women.
But it was reported that he’s reconsidering the decision and contacting donors to seek support for a possible re-election bid.
Pelosi’s lack of a response was especially glaring since it landed on International Women’s Day and after months of resignations as a result of revelations from the “Me Too” movement exposing sexual harassment in Hollywood and in other industries.
