House of Representatives Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said she will seek an ethics investigation Monday into sexual misconduct allegations against Representative David Wu. Pelosi called for the investigation after reported accusations that the Oregon Democrat had an unwanted sexual encounter with the teen-aged daughter of a campaign donor.
Pelosi said she would send a formal request to the House Ethics Committee on Monday.
The new allegations follow other behavior problems for Wu. His staff said Wu had behaved strangely at meetings and had e-mailed pictures of himself wearing a tiger suit to staff. Several key staff members resigned following the election.
