Congress can’t pass its own #RoyMoore test

Screenshot 2017-11-15 at 07.25.21Despite lectures from our betters in Congress about why Alabama’s Roy Moore should not be elected to the U.S. Senate, two female lawmakers accused sitting members of Congress of sexual harassment.

“This is about a member who is here now,” said Rep. Barbara Comstock, R-Va., a member of the House Administration Committee, which is conducting a review of existing policies to prevent and report sexual harassment.

According to Comstock: The male lawmaker asked a young female staffer to bring some paperwork to him at home; he answered the door in nothing but a towel.

“At that point, he decided to expose himself,” Comstock said. “She left. And then she quit her job.”

Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., divulged that she is also aware of harassing behavior by some of her colleagues.

“In fact, there are two members of Congress, Republican and Democrat, right now, who serve, who have not been subject to review, but have engaged in sexual harassment,” she said without identifying the lawmakers.

There was broad agreement at Tuesday’s hearing that the House needs to make some changes, starting with mandatory sexual harassment training.

Currently, the training is optional.

Seriously? These loser sex perverts need “training?” Maybe jail would be better?
