Democratic Congressman Settled Sexual Harassment Case With $220k Of Taxpayer Dollars

The swamp is draining itself!

The funds paid, UNKNOWINGLY, by the American taxpayers MUST be refunded to the Treasury by these power-abusing predators! Both sides of the aisle.

Why should our hard earned Tax, be spent on their sexual assaults.

A former female staffer for a congressional commission received $220,000 as part of a settlement from a lawsuit she filed alleging Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., sexually harassed her.

The former staffer, Winsome Packer, worked for the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe, also known as the Helsinki Commission, and accused Hastings of “unwelcome touching” and “unwelcome sexual advances” in a lawsuit filed against him, according to Roll Call.

The Office of Compliance approved the settlement in 2014 after Winsome Packer, a former congressional staffer on a commission chaired by Hastings, accused the Democratic congressman of making sexual advances, touching her and threatening her job, documents obtained by Roll Call reveal.

Packer told Roll Call that she was “blackballed” after the incident.

“As an immigrant who came here with all these ideals, it is like someone just removed all the foundations that I stood on in this country for all these years,” she said. Packer was born in Jamaica,

Hastings, who has served in Congress since 1993, is the latest congressman to be caught up in a sexual harassment scandal.

No wonder our country’s debt has go through the roof, we are having to pay for all of these no better’s to play instead of doing what they were sent to Washington to do. If they can not keep their pants zipped and their hands to their self they need to all be kicked out and start all over again. I am talking about both sides of the isle.
