Wu talks with Pelosi about published sex accusation
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) ' U.S. Rep David Wu's spokesman says the embattled congressman has had a telephone conversation with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi about a young woman's reported accusation of an "unwanted sexual encounter."
Spokesman Erik Dorey would not comment on the substance of the conversation.
The discussion follows a report by The Oregonian that a young woman from California accused the seven-term congressman of an unwanted sexual encounter in November after his election victory.
The newspaper also reported that Wu told his senior aides the encounter was consensual.
Calls have been growing for Wu to address the allegation. There have also been calls for him to resign.
