Congress has secretly paid out nearly $17 million of our money in settlements for charges … You won’t believe what …

Lawmakers and staffers say sexual harassment is “rampant” on Capitol Hill — but even members of Congress have no idea just how widespread the problem is.

Female lawmakers making fresh allegations of sexual harassment against unnamed members who are currently in office.

So far, there’s been little specific data to help illuminate just how pervasive sexual harassment is on Capitol Hill, but one figure has emerged: the total that the Office of Compliance, the office that handles harassment complaints, has paid to victims.

On Thursday, the Office of Compliance released additional information indicating that it has paid victims more than $17 million since its creation in the 1990s. That includes all settlements, not just related to sexual harassment, but also discrimination and other cases.

According to the OOC data released Thursday, there have been 268 settlements. On Wednesday, Rep. Jackie Speier, the California Democrat who unveiled a bill to reform the OOC, announced at a news conference Wednesday that there had been 260 settlements. The previous tally did not include settlements paid in 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Folks, Trump knew it all… we need to DRAIN the SWAMP!

This is what Rev. Graham had to say about this terrile issue:

President Donald J. Trump said that Washington was a swamp that needed to be drained. That’s true, but I’ll go a step further to say that it is beyond Washington and politics—it’s an issue of morality, and sin, across our nation. We seem to have reached a new low of depravity. More shocking allegations surfacing every day in the news. Now we find out that Congress has secretly paid out nearly $17 million of our money in settlements for charges of all kinds, like sexual harassment, that we should be disgusted by. And Minnesota U.S. Senator Al Franken’s nauseating sexual misconduct joined the headlines this week. Do we need to drain the swamp? Yes, but the only way real change can happen is by hearts being transformed—washed clean—by the blood of Jesus Christ. We have rejected and strayed from God’s ways and His Word—there are serious consequences. Rejecting God puts us on a path to destruction. We need revival and repentance.
The Bible says, “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls” (Jeremiah 6:16).
