Ruben Kihuen Accusers Website
On March 13, 2019, a website defending Ruben who left office last year following a #MeToo scandal, names and attempts to dismantle the stories of three women who have accused him of sexual harassment — two of whom had not previously come forward publicly.
The website came to the spotlight following a BuzzFeed News report Tuesday that focused on the Las Vegas city council seat Ruben is now running for.
According to BuzzFeed, it did not link to the site since it contains several inaccuracies because it outs alleged victims of sexual harassment without their consent and site also includes photos of the three women.
Ruben distanced himself from the website, adding that Clark County Commissioner Justin Jones made him aware of it on Tuesday night March 12, 2019.
“Neither me nor my campaign were aware of the website before being contacted by Mr. Jones,” Ruben said on Twitter. “I don’t support website and attorneys for our campaign will ask its author to take it down immediately.”
It is still unclear who created the website, but its domain was registered on March 7, according to public records, which do not list who or what entity is responsible for it.
