U.S. House Paid $15 Million to Its Secret Sexual Harassment Victims, by Joel Pollack.
Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd on Meet the Press Daily on Tuesday that the U.S. House of Representatives has paid $15 million to alleged victims of sexual harassment by its own members in recent years. …
“If the taxpayers are involved, don’t we have the right to know?” Todd asked later in the segment.
“I think you do have the right to know,” she said. “But right now, under the system, you don’t have a right to know.”
Speer described a one-sided investigative process that does everything to protect members of Congress — and little to protect the rights of victims: “Right now it takes almost 90 days to be able to file a complaint. And before actually going through the mediation, you have to sign a non-disclosure agreement. And then, you are not represented by counsel, but the harasser is represented by the House of Representatives general counsel.”
Good to know what the world’s highest decision makers are up to. Cannot see through the global warming nonsense, oblivious to the massive debt problems of the West, rather in favor of the high levels of third world immigration, and ignorant of the renewed threat from Islam or its true nature. Marvelous. Doing their constituents proud.
