WASHINGTONâ ???? Rep. Tom Reed (R., NY) said in a statement on Sunday evening that he would not run for re-election or run for governor in 2022 after allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior were made last week.

Mr Reed apologized also with Nicolette Davis, who told the Washington Post last week that lawmakers made her undesirable sexual advances in 2017, which it deemed inaccurate on Friday.

Simply put, my behavior caused her pain, showed her disrespect, and was unprofessional. I was wrong, I’m sorry and I take full responsibility. Mr Reed said in a statement on Sunday evening.

Ms. Davis, a U.S. Army lieutenant who was working as an insurance lobbyist at the time, said Mr. Reed put his hand on her back, unhooked her bra and touched her leg during a fundraiser, according to a report she gave it to the Washington Post. She didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on Sunday night.

Mr Reed said the incident happened while he was struggling with an alcohol addiction for which he later sought treatment.
