Connecticut Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty, D-CT5, said Monday that she won’t seek re-election in November. Her announcement comes a few days after she admitted to mishandling a 2016 abuse claim from one of her staffers, which prompted calls for her resignation from both Democrats and Republicans.

Connecticut Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty, D-CT5, says she has no intention of resigning from office. The third-term Democrat is responding to calls made in the past few days by prominent state Democrats, who want Esty to resign because of the way she handled sexual harassment allegations made against her former chief of staff.
