House Ethics Committee chides Meadows, Kihuen over sexual harassment allegations

(CNN)The House Ethics Committee admonished two male lawmakers Friday related to investigations of alleged sexual harassment.

Republican Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina was cited for “failure to take prompt and decisive action to deal with the alleged sexual harassment in his congressional office” and Democratic Rep. Ruben Kihuen of Nevada for making “persistent and unwanted advances towards women who were required to interact with him as part of their professional responsibilities.”
The committee said that its unanimous vote to issue Friday’s report serves as “reproval” of Meadows’ conduct, and it is requiring the congressman to reimburse the Treasury Department for “overpayment” made made to the congressman’s former chief of staff, Kenny West, of around $40,000. The committee says the matter will be considered closed once Meadows pays back the money.
