Quit hiding workplace sex abuse settlements!

From Derek Hunter at Townhall:

The $15 million-plus reportedly paid out by us, the taxpayers, to “make good” on the indiscretions, perversions, and flashing of subordinates on Capitol Hill is equally unacceptable. The perpetrators need to be exposed and removed.

They haven’t been yet because they’re the ones who set the rules governing how their actions are adjudicated. If you get to set the rules you always come out ahead. And the rules they’ve made protect them.

Those rules need to be changed. There needs to be complete and total transparency of any monies paid out for sexual harassment. It doesn’t matter if the punishment is expulsion or just censure; if we’re forced to pay they should be forced to expose who we’re paying and for what. More.

Reality check: Good approach. In some of these situations, it is hard to know how to proceed but unlike Hollywood and Big Media, the Congresspigs are spending public money, for which they can be made accountable.

    Much of these payouts are not related to sex. …”A large portion of cases originate from employing offices in the legislative branch other than the House of Representatives or the Senate, and involve various statutory provisions incorporated by the CAA, such as the overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.”

    I’m on record opposing the special treatment that Svend Robinson got because HE was the first to stand up and yell at the sky about Social Justice and equality in the Courts no matter the Colour or Income .
    Then he got caught stealing a $60,000.00 item and demanded a Special Crown Attorney as an MP by the Privileges and got a Verdict that NO black youth would get for a much lesser crime around $1000.00 .

    Jack Layton had the chance to show how Moral the NDP was and tell the Media that the Laws apply to everyone and Svend will accept the same Court Ruling the poor face every day if before a Judge .
    But no ……he and Libby Davies stood by his side to coddle him but when his excuse of the stress from years of homophobia in canada didn’t fly, he ran to a Doctor and used the Mental illness excuse which I found insulting because many thieves are very sane as we saw for the AdScam by Liberals where $300 million was stolen and giving to friends.

    Hollywoody males got away with the abuse as do others in power and Politics .
    The real tragedy in this is the faux outrage by Liberals as if they think nobody else knew this and can’t see the double hypocrisy to act like they fight for Women’s rights as they rape or assault then but once it exposed they act shocked and denounce it.
