  • Rep. Blake Farenthold Won't Run in '18 Under Pressure from Harassment Settlement

Over the past several weeks, new reports of Farenthold's harassment have emerged.

U.S. Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas' 27th District, will retire at the end of his term and will not see re-election in 2018, two GOP sources confirmed to NBC News Thursday morning. In an email to a top aide to GOP Rep. Susan Brooks of IN, the chairwoman of the Ethics panel, Rekola wrote that he wished to provide the committee "examples of sexually inappropriate comments" that Farenthold made, and speak about the congressman's "emotionally damaging" and "intimidating" actions.

Farenthold's office did not reply to a request for comment and Reuters has not been able to independently verify the allegations.

"While I 100 percent support more transparency with respect to claims against members of Congress, I can neither confirm nor deny that settlement involved my office as the Congressional Accountability Act prohibits me from answering that question", he said in a statement.

Rep. Blake Farenthold won't seek reelection.

CNN reported Wednesday that a male former senior staffer has approached the Ethics Committee with reports of the congressman being verbally abusive and sexually demeaning.
