After an ABC News report revealed that Florida Rep. Tim Mahoney secretly paid his former alleged mistress and campaign staffer to prevent a sexual harassment lawsuit from going forward, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called on the House Ethics Committee to “immediately and thoroughly” investigate the report. The advertising company used by Mahoney’s campaign, Fletcher Rowley Chao Riddle, also announced that it had “permanently” ended its relationship with the West Palm Beach congressmen based on the report by ABC News that he had promised his former alleged mistress a job at the firm as part of a secret legal deal.

“I just learned today about the serious allegations concerning Congressman Tim Mahoney,” Pelosi said in a statement. “These charges must be immediately and thoroughly investigated by the House Ethics Committee.”
