Rape Tom Reid will not seek re-election after claims of sex harassment

Rep. Tom Tom Reid, a GOP congressman from upstream New York, said on Sunday that he would not run for next year – or governor – after allegations of molesting a female lobbyist four years ago.

Reid also apologized to Nicklett Davis, who told the Washington Post last week that Congressmen targeted him in 2017 with unwanted sexual advances at a Minneapolis bar.

“Simply put, my behavior caused her pain, showed disrespect and was unprofessional. “I was wrong, I’m sorry, and I take full responsibility,” Reid said in a statement.

Lawmakers – who claimed on Friday that Davis’ account was inaccurate – said on Sunday that the incident occurred while he was battling alcohol addiction, for which he later underwent treatment.

“In addition to apologizing to the people who have influenced me, including Ms. Davis, I will try to help those wrestling,” Reid said.

“As I move forward, I will strive to be a better person, keep fighting for what I believe in and somehow improve people’s lives.” I hope this formal apology is just the beginning. “

Reed, 49, is married to his girlfriend Jean, with whom they have two children. A former mayor of his hometown of Corning, he has served in Congress since 2011.

He recently indicated that he was considering challenging Gov. Andrew Andrew in 2022, that the scammer three-term Democrat “needs to be taken down.”

Instead, Reid stated that he would retire from public service when his term ended in January 2023.
