The AP reported, via Free Republic:

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi is calling for an ethics panel investigation of Rep. David Wu following a published allegation that a woman reported he’d engaged in unwanted sexual behavior toward her.

In a statement Sunday night, Pelolsi asked the “Ethics Committee to initiate an investigation into the allegations against Congressman Wu.”

Pelosi met with Wu Saturday but did not disclose details of the meeting.

She’s says that “with deep disappointment and sadness about this situation, I hope that the Ethics Committee will take up this matter.”

The Democratic leader says she will send a letter to the panel Monday formally asking for the probe.
