WHY DO WE ACCEPT HYPOCRISY FROM OUR LEGISLATORS? – #48
To think that since 1995 taxpayers have shelled out $600,000 to various people who claimed to have been sexually abused in Senator’s Offices … the same SENATORS who put an innocent man’s reputation on the line during the Brett Cavanaugh hearings.
During late December 2018, President Trump signed an overhaul of the Congressional Account-ability Act that protects victims while respecting due process. It is interesting to note that The House of Representatives does not admit to how much they had paid out during the same period of time. The sum would rock the taxpayer.
You can judge whether the new law reflects enough changes.
- There is no cooling off period – file immediately.
- Lawmakers are personally liable in the cases where settlement is reached through mediation.
- In other scenarios, the hearing officer or judge makes the personal-liability determination, after which lawmakers must reimburse the Treasury for compensatory damages up to $300,000.00. The ethics committee can also decide to pursue further sanctions.
- The new law makes it easier to make claims of harassment and discrimination. Let’s make sure that these well-meaning reform’s aren’t used as a political weapon. Who can forget the spears thrown during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings?
MAKE SURE THAT YOUR FIRM MEETS AND EXCEEDS STANDARDS APPLICABLE TO ALL EMPLOYEES AND THAT YOU NOR ANYBODY IS NOT COVERING UP FOR ANYONE!!!!
