A Republican congressman on Saturday denied an allegation of sexual misconduct made in a report that said he used taxpayer dollars to settle a complaint from a female staffer about inappropriate sexual behaviour. He was nonetheless removed from the House ethics committee by the speaker, Paul Ryan, made subject to investigation by his former panel and told to repay “whatever taxpayer funds were used”.
