I can’t even believe this is a real thing. Congress has been using our tax dollars to pay off sexual assault victims of their own doing! A total of $17M has been paid out in the past twenty years. Could you imagine what people could do with $17M, what a complete a total waste. And the irony is none of the voters even knew about this.
Speier told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday that the 260 settlements represent those related to all kinds of complaints, including sexual harassment as well as racial, religious or disability-related discrimination complaints. – link
From the Office of Compliance report you can see the breakdown for how much money and the number of settlements per year were paid out. The statistics on payments are not further broken down into specific claims because settlements may involve cases that allege violations of more than one of the 13 statutes incorporated by the CAA. (link) Unbelievable, let’s not break down the numbers because they violated statutes – yeah, that makes sense.
We should have every single payout and all members who violated any law or were part of a complaint brought out to the public, this is OUR MONEY!
