Chris Janicek denied the party’s request that he drop out over text messages in which he made sexually explicit remarks about another staffer, the Omaha World-Herald reports. In a group text with at least five people, Janicek mocked a staffer by saying he wanted to “get her laid.”

According to the World-Herald, Janicek described lining up men for group sex with the staffer, suggesting that the men could be paid.

“Thoughts?!money” he wrote.

Janicek admitted the messages are authentic.

“This is a moment in time where I made a terrible mistake in a text message,” he said.

The party requested Janicek withdraw after reviewing the text messages, which were revealed by a staff member who filed a formal complaint about the incident Monday.

Will he end up dropping out? Democrats are putting a lot of pressure on him to do so.

It’s not looking good for him.
