Rep. George Santos is denying allegations of sexual harassment from a former employee.
In a complaint to the House Ethics Committee, Derek Meyers alleges that Santos touched his groin in an unwanted sexual advance Jan. 25.
Meyers, who says he worked for Santos as an aide, claims Santos asked him to join the congressman and others at a bar, but he declined.
The complaint claims that Santos told Meyers, "My husband is out of town tonight if you want to come over."
Santos told CNN Monday that he "100%" denies the claims and called them "comical."
Meyers alleges his job offer was revoked Feb. 1 even though he worked there voluntarily.
