Congress Has Paid Out Millions To Hush Sexual Harassment Suits

The maelstrom concerning accusations of sexual misconduct by people in positions of power has predictably hit Washington D.C. It has been revealed that a slush fund of hush money has been used by Congress to settle sexual harassment lawsuits and other indiscretions on Capitol Hill.

    When women get to vote, scoundrels get elected.

    Apparently the list includes other “real” workers’ compensation out-payments but we won’t know the extent until they reveal and itemize IT ALL!!!

    Here are the figures for settlements from 1997 to 2017, and a breakdown of the average payout per settlement per year. Every penny of this hush money is taxpayers’ money. They grope, you pay, they get to keep everything quiet and keep their cushy jobs and gold-plated pensions.

    The only problem with humanity IS humanity itself. Does anyone really believe you can legislate behavior? Or indoctrinate? Or religiouslate? Nothing has worked across the board since the Fall. Why expect it now in this spiritual tug of war. Make laws and see to it they are enforced. Even that won’t solve it, but it would help some of us to feel a little better.
