Treasury fund paid for Rep. Farenthold’s $84,000 sexual harassment settlement

Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Tex.) used $84,000 in taxpayer dollars to settle with a former aide who sued him for sexual harassment in 2014, The Washington Post confirmed Friday.

The revelation sheds new light on the secretive process that lawmakers use to settle workplace complaints against them and their aides using public funds. In total, the Treasury fund has paid for settlements related to six claims against House members’ offices since 2013, the OOC wrote in a letter Friday to the Committee on House Administration. The five complaints not pertaining to sexual harassment alleged one or more forms of employment discrimination and in some cases, retaliation, the letter stated.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That these pussballs believe, as a matter of course, that they are entitled to public money with which to pay off these lawsuits, is an indication of just how much they hold American voters in absolute contempt, and demonstrate, unequivocably, that they no longer represent their alleged constitutients, but just their own financial interests, and those of the corporations which own them.
