The chief of staff for Rep. Ruben Kihuen, D-Nev., is asking staffers for fellow Democratic lawmakers' to hire his team as the embattled lawmaker faces calls for resignation in the wake of sexual harassment allegations.
Top staffer Peter Koltak emailed resumes for nearly all of Kihuen's staff to members' offices Tuesday morning.
"I’m hoping to place them all here pretty quickly in other offices," Koltak wrote, according to a Politico report. "If you have openings or you hear of any, I would appreciate your help making those connections. I’m happy to talk with anyone at any time about each person. I would highly recommend any of them."
The move indicates Kihuen may be planning to resign from office though he has denied any plans to do so. In addition, his staff may be looking to jump ship due to the association.
Last Friday, BuzzFeed reported the Nevadan made multiple inappropriate sexual advances toward a member of staff on his 2016 election campaign.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called for Kihuen to step down in light of the accusations, but he has not stated whether he will leave office.
