LA Times: David Wu sex allegations, Another Democrat in hot water
Los Angeles Times ^ | July 25, 2011 | By Michael A. Memoli

Top House Democrats, including Nancy Pelosi, are again calling for the Ethics Committee to investigate one of their own following allegations of sexual misconduct by Oregon Rep. David Wu.

"With deep disappointment and sadness about this situation, I hope that the Ethics Committee will take up this matter," Pelosi, the minority leader, said in a statement to reporters late Sunday.

The Oregonian reported last week that the young daughter of a longtime Wu campaign donor called the congressman's office this spring accusing him of "an unwanted sexual encounter." The newspaper said that Wu acknowledged the incident, which occurred over Thanksgiving in Orange County but said it was consensual.

There once was a Democrat who
After voting had nothing to do
To taxpayers he’d stuck it
But wasn’t ready to shuck it
So he engaged in a bit of Wu Who.

I keep reading “young” daughter but no age. Since he’s not in jail I presume she’s > 18.

This is the biggest sleeper story of the year; the MSM is really keeping this completely squelched.
