House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called for a “prompt” House ethics investigation into Rep. Tony Cárdenas (D-Calif.) on Saturday, following reports of allegations that he sexually abused a 16-year-old girl in 2006. Cárdenas has vehemently denied the allegations through his attorney.

“I have spoken with Congressman Cárdenas and he appropriately asked us to withhold judgment until there is a full investigation of the facts,” Pelosi said in a statement. “As Members of Congress, we each have a responsibility to uphold the integrity of the House of Representatives, and any type of alleged misconduct must be investigated by the Ethics Committee. Congressman Cárdenas said he will fully cooperate with an ethics investigation.
