Congresswoman Says At Least 2 Members Of Congress Are Sexual Harassers

A Member of Congress Exposed Himself to a Staffer, Lawmakers Say

Rep. Jackie Speier said Tuesday she's aware of a democrat and republican lawmaker who are now in office despite allegedly harassing House staffers.

"This member asked a staffer to bring them over some materials to their residence".

Speier, who has spoken out about her own experience as a victim of sexual misconduct on Capitol Hill and invited others on the Beltway to do the same, said she had been told by current and former congressional staffers of harassment, groping and unwanted advances - sometimes on the House floor.

"I think it's important we name names", Comstock said.

House lawmakers on Tuesday joined together to discuss sexual harassment policies after a series of allegations sparked calls for reform on Capitol Hill.

Comstock - who worked on Capitol Hill as a staffer early in her career and served in the Virginia House of Delegates before being elected to represent Northern Virginia's 10th District a year ago - said Congress needs more training and stronger safeguards in place to ensure women don't have to give up their careers to escape sexually aggressive behavior. She did not know the identity of the congressman. "Because Congress has been a breeding ground for a hostile work environment for far too long". Additionally, interns and fellows do not have access to this process, leaving them with nowhere to turn should they be sexually harassed by a member of Congress.

"It's time to throw back the curtain on the repulsive behavior that until now has thrived in the dark without consequences", she said.
