Oregon Democratic Congressman David Wu is expected to address Congress about allegations of an unwanted sexual encounter.

The Oregonian reported that a young woman from California has accused the Democrat of an unwanted sexual encounter last November, an allegation the newspaper said Wu acknowledged but said was consensual. The newspaper said the information came from multiple sources familiar with the allegation.

Late Friday, Wu issued a one-sentence statement about the allegation: “This is very serious, and I have absolutely no desire to bring unwanted publicity, attention or stress to a young woman and her family.”

…The Oregonian quoted sources as saying that a distraught young woman called Wu’s Portland office earlier this year and left a voicemail accusing him of an unwanted sexual encounter in Southern California three weeks after his victory in last year’s election.

The newspaper quoted sources as saying the woman did not press charges because there were no witnesses and it would be her word against Wu’s.
