Another Reason To Drain The Swamp: Sexual Harassment Is Rampant In The Halls Of Congress

Did you know that the House of Representatives has paid out $15,000,000 to victims of sexual harassment in recent years? I am going to share some things with you in this article that are deeply disturbing, but it is for a purpose. The status quo is not acceptable in Washington, and once people truly understand how deep the corruption runs I believe that they will get motivated to finally drain the swamp once and for all. So yes, I am going to share some things in this article that are truly disgusting, but the goal is to show you that it is time to take our government back from the corrupt career politicians that are completely and utterly out of control.

 

In recent days, CNN has interviewed dozens of people that worked on Capitol Hill, and almost every single one of them had stories of sexual harassment to share

CNN spoke with more than 50 lawmakers, current and former Hill aides and political veterans who have worked in Congress, the majority of whom spoke anonymously to be candid and avoid potential repercussions. With few exceptions, every person said they have personally experienced sexual harassment on the Hill or know of others who have.

In an environment with “so many young women,” said one ex-House aide, the men “have no self-control.” “Amongst ourselves, we know,” a former Senate staffer said of the lawmakers with the worst reputations. And sometimes, the sexual advances from members of Congress or senior aides are reciprocated in the hopes of advancing one’s career — what one political veteran bluntly referred to as a “sex trade on Capitol Hill.”

The American people are not going to put up with this any longer.

We have no choice but to clean up our government, because the rest of the world is laughing at us.

On Tuesday, U.S. Representative Jackie Speier told a congressional hearing that she personally knows of two current members of Congress that have “engaged in sexual harassment”

“In fact there are two members of Congress, Republican and Democrat, right now, who serve — who have…engaged in sexual harassment.”

Speier said one of the harassers has propositioned women with the comment, “Are you going to be a good girl?” Another has exposed his genitals, she said, and some victims have had “their private parts grabbed on the House floor.”

“All they ask in return as staff members is to be able to work in a hostile-free work environment. They want the system fixed and the perpetrators held accountable.”

And Speier was the one that revealed the fact that 15 million dollars have been paid out to victims of sexual harassment in the House in recent years. The following comes from Breitbart

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.

“We do know there is about $15 million that has been paid out by the House on behalf of harassers in the last ten to 15 years,” she said.

“15 million dollars has been paid out over sexual harassment claims,” Todd replied, somewhat shocked. “So, obviously more than one member of Congress.”

If members of Congress are engaged in this type of behavior, why don’t the American people know about it?

And why are those members of Congress still allowed to serve?

Representative Barbara Comstock also testified on Tuesday. She said that one current member of Congress exposed his private parts to a female staffer when she delivered papers to his house…

Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-Va.) said at a House Administration Committee hearing on Tuesday that a sitting member of the U.S. Congress exposed himself to a young female staffer who delivered papers to his house–at his request.

We need to be told who this member of Congress is so that he can be removed from Congress immediately.

This kind of behavior is not acceptable from anyone in a civilized society – and that goes double for someone that is supposed to be one of the leaders of our nation.

Here are the exact words that Comstock used as she described this incident…

This member asked a staffer to bring them over some materials, to their residence. And the young staffer — it was a young woman — went there and was greeted with a member in a towel. It was a male, who then invited her in. And at that point, he decided to expose himself. She left, and then she quit her job. She left, she found another job.

Of course this sort of behavior is not just limited to members of Congress. According to an ex-Secret Service agent, Vice-President Joe Biden was regularly engaged in “Weinstein-level” predatory behavior

An ex-Secret Service agent is claiming that former Vice President Joe Biden engaged in “Weinstein-level” sexual assault and that he would walk around the VP residence late at night completely naked.

According to Big League Politics’ Cassandra Fairbanks, a Secret Service agent who spoke on condition of anonymity revealed that Biden “would mess with every single woman or teen,” and that a Christmas get-together at the VP’s house had to be canceled “because Biden would grope all of our wives and girlfriend’s asses.”

In fact, things were so bad that at one point a Secret Service agent almost got into a fight with Biden. Here is more from Paul Joseph Watson

During one alleged incident in 2009, Biden cupped the breast of a Secret Service agent’s girlfriend during a photo, prompting the agent to shove Biden and almost hit him. The agent was subsequently suspended for a week, according to the source.

Men would often stand in front of female agents and Navy women or create false pretenses to have them leave the room just to get them away from Biden, according to the agent.

When I am elected to Congress, I am going to make fighting this sort of predatory behavior a top priority.

We are supposed to serve as an example to the rest of the world, and instead we have become a bad joke.

Those that have been engaging in this sort of shameful behavior have got to go, because we simply are not going to put up with it anymore.

    Do not just ‘drain’ the swamp, EXPORT THE TRASH BACK to there they came from!

    The technology exists that makes it ENTIRELY REASONABLE for them to WORK FROM HOME.

    The way, WE, THE VOTERS THAT ELECTED THEM can watch them daily 24/7 and see who they talk to, for how long, where they go and what they do and MAKE DAMNED CERTAIN THEY FOLLOW OUR WISHES!

  • Janthony132

    Wow! And not only in government, the DNC and other left wing perverts in a frenzy to dump false accusations about Judge Moore, who has a long history of honor, integrity and judicial experience, to be subjected to these false and nasty lies – all to prevent him from being elected to the Senate. These people are afraid of him and what he can do to clean up the swamp members. Voters in Alabama are NOT fooled and they will vote Moore to victory…and then all the rest of us will see that McConnell and the other RINO’s are sent packing.

    What did people expect? Clinton taught them how to do it AND get away with it smelling like a rose!!! 😮😡👿

  • Elaine Bostic

    Amen!!!

  • RockinOn

    Swamp has been in place so long the water is stagnant and the creatures are used to it, time to Drain completely and refill with Fresh American Patriots who are ready willing and able to put American principles and people at the top of the list before themselves unlike the critters slithering in the Swamp now! Term Limits so that the Congress is constantly being replenished with new faces with a vetting process that is unsurpassed for each one!

  • Kent Harris

    It is not these people who are at fault but the people who voted for these jerks. Voting should be restricted to those who are not recent immigrants (7 years residency), criminals, and those who are receiving government benefits. Otherwise, you have evil voting for evil.

  • Margaret Heller

    I guess Biden was doing other things besides 35 years of meetings.

  • Kathryn Jordan

    We don’t know how many members of Congress have been involved in this kind of behavior. It is a sickening that these members would even use taxpayers money to pay for settlements on this kind of behavior. I want to know why those settlements were not paid by the members’ own money. I want to know all the members that have been involved in this kind of behavior. I’d like to know who the victims were and the age when the sexual harassment occurred.

  • Kathryn Jordan

    Clinton should have been removed from office. He should have been impeached for not only his perjury but also his sexual harassment. We did not need a president who did that kind of behavior. As a Democrat, I am appalled that he was “given a slap on the wrist” and told “don’t do it again”.

  • Kathryn Jordan

    Explain to me why Judge Moore was expelled as Chief Justice on the State Supreme Court TWICE? That does not tell me that he has integrity, honor not to mention judicial experience. When you are kicked off the State Supreme Court twice, that doesn’t tell me that person will be a good representative of a state. Sure it is up to the voters of Alabama to decide whether they will believe the allegations of sexual harassment/abuse or not. I am not an Alabama voter, so have no say in their election. Whether or not I like their decision, I will have to tell myself “that is who they chose”.

  • Kathryn Jordan

    In many ways, you are calling for “invasion of privacy” of your elected officials. Would you want your elected officials to put technology in your homes and watch your actions daily 24/7? I don’t think so. I hope that our elected officials do what we elected them to do: follow our wishes. Do you want to use the same technology on people in Hollywood who do this kind of behavior as well? Those people would be up in arms crying out “don’t invade my privacy”.

  • CrustyOldGeezer

    I placed no request for ‘spying’ on any person in their homes.

    The Work from home” in the usage would be “work from their HOME DISTRICT”.

    Your assumption that I meant from their personal residence is more than a ‘misunderstanding but “a straw, no matter how thin and fragile” to make irrelevant claims to distract the opposition.

    And, since you seem to be about 15 years behind on your dept of home in security, the NSA, FBI and a large percentage of the alphabet agencies have been doing exactly what you suggest I want.
    Every phone call you make is recorded, logged, cross referenced a thousand different ways.

    Your car license plate is photographed by police cars, marked and unmarked that drive through store parking lots, private parking areas, cars parked on the streets, or in driveways that can be seen from the city streets.

    EXACTLY WHAT was your issue with my suggestion?

  • Janthony132

    I don’t know all the specifics, however I believe it had a lot to do with political differences and “God” Case in point…..Look at Ginsberg on the Supreme Court and her biases????

  • Kathryn Jordan

    There are 4 that are Conservatives, 4 that are Liberal and one that is a Moderate Conservative on the United Supreme Court. Each have their biases. Kennedy is your Moderate (and Swing vote) on the Court. You can’t have an all Conservative Court just like you can’t have an all Liberal Court; you have to have a mixture (biases or not).
