Another congressman is in hot water for inappropriate sexual behavior around the ladeez.
David Wu, a Democrat from Oregon, has been accused of forcing himself on a woman after his office received a series of distraught calls from the young woman this spring. The Oregonian reports,
When confronted, the Oregon Democrat acknowledged a sexual encounter to his senior aides but insisted it was consensual, the sources said.
One person who heard the voice mail described the woman as upset, breathing heavily and "distraught."
In the voice mail, the young woman accused Wu of aggressive and unwanted sexual behavior, according to sources with direct knowledge of the message and its contents.
The woman, the daughter of a donor to Congressman Wu's campaign, graduated high school in 2010. The congressman is in his mid-50's.
Nancy Pelosi is aware of the allegations but has declined to comment on whether she thinks the Congressman should resign, as she's neck deep in debt ceiling negotiations.
Prior to this incident, Congressman Wu is best known for being the first Chinese-American elected to the US House of Representatives and behaving bizarrely during the 2010 Congressional campaign. According to the New York Daily News,
Photos surfaced of Wu looking red-faced and deranged while wearing a fuzzy orange tiger costume and staffers said they received rambling emails that appeared to be written by Wu's children but were actually written by him.
Wu also admitted that he had taken painkillers that were given to him by a donor, which he claimed were for neck pain.
Rule one of being in Congress: keep it in your pants. Rule two of being in Congress: ignore rule 1.
