REPORT: ‘Next Wave’ of Sexual Harassment Allegations Set To Rock Washington

If you thought the sexual harassment allegations would stop at Senator Al Franken, you’re sadly mistaken. According to Axios reporter Jonathan Swan, claims against the Democrat lawmaker are the “very tip of the congressional iceberg.”

The “next wave,” is coming, says Swan.

Axios reports:

Members of Congress with histories of mistreating women should be extremely nervous. Major outlets, including CNN, are dedicating substantial newsroom resources to investigating sexual harassment allegations against numerous lawmakers.

Bottom line: Democratic Sen. Al Franken is the very tip of the congressional iceberg. Many more stories are coming and we wouldn’t be surprised if they end several careers.

“A Republican source told me he’s gotten calls from well-known D.C. reporters who are gathering stories about sleazy members,” says Swan.

As previously reported by Cristina Laila, Congress has a rampant sexual harassment problem. In fact the problem is so bad that female lawmakers and aides keep a ‘creep list’ of men who are notorious for lewd behavior.

Twitter was set ablaze Thursday after the Congressional Office of Compliance released a year-by-year breakdown of harassment settlements and other awards without any details or names.

A new report by CNN exposed the DC swamp’s very serious problem of powerful men preying on women. CNN spoke with over 50 current and former lawmakers, aides and staff who have personally experienced sexual harassment on The Hill or know people who have.

As if this couldn’t get any worse, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd Tuesday that taxpayers have paid over $15 million to settle sexual harassment lawsuits against members of Congress!

    I wish they would just roll everything out. Congress has been getting away with exempting themselves from the laws the rest of us must follow for too long.

    It’s no wonder they can’t get anything accomplished, their minds are on “monkey business” instead of what they were sent there to do!!!

    If CNN is doing the investigation you can bet it will all be republicans and the sources will be unnamed and probably untrue.

    !5 million dollars American taxpayers have shelled out for these’s creeps. That is an outrage. Senator Al Franken should Resign immediately. His case with Pictures are Proof. Is this what type of people we want to represent us, I don’t think so. I am from Minnesota and he is an embarrassment to our state. Pictures don’t lie, Franken is guilty.
