Representative John Conyers resigned. Senator Al Franken is resigning. Both were under scrutiny from mainstream media because they were big names. The Democrat-protection-ring in newsrooms across the nation couldn’t contain the stories, so they had to run with them. Thankfully for Representative Ruben Kihuen, his name isn’t that big. Reports of his sexual misconduct are much easier to sweep under the rug.
The original story was enough for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to call for his resignation:
Last year, a 25-year-old woman left her job on Democratic Rep. Ruben Kihuen’s campaign because of what she says were repeated, unwanted propositions for dates and sex. Responding to these allegations, the chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee said Kihuen should resign. Kihuen said on Friday, “I sincerely apologize for anything that I may have said or done that made her feel uncomfortable.”
A woman who worked as the finance director for a promising Nevada Democrat is alleging that he repeatedly harassed and made sexual advances toward her during his 2016 congressional campaign — and like many young people on campaigns all over the country, she did not know what to do with her complaint and didn’t feel comfortable bringing it to the campaign’s leadership.
The first-term Congressman didn’t resign and doesn’t have any plans of doing it. Thanks to being absolutely ignored by mainstream media, he probably won’t have to unless more allegations come to light. The GOP isn’t talking about it; they have their own sexual misconduct problems to handle. As a result, Kihuen is probably going to stay far enough under the radar to finish off his term. If he’s lucky, he might even get reelected.
DailyWire and a few other conservative publications are doing what they can to expose the Nevada Democrat, but unless it reaches a tipping point of awareness in the general public, we shouldn’t expect mainstream media to report on it. When it comes to Democrats, they’ll only tell you what you already know.
“Kihuen told ABC News that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and its Chairman Rep. Ben Ray Lujan, along with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, knew about the allegations against him, but did not find anything of substance and continued to support him,” ABC reported.
“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,” Kihuen told ABC News Tuesday of Pelosi and Lujan.
It’s up to right-leaning media to get this story out there. The cover up us on with mainstream media because he’s just not a big enough name. We need to change that.
