Some members of Congress sexually harassed the night-shift custodians.
Custodial staff on Capitol Hill have reported sexual harassment while cleaning the offices of members of Congress, according to a recent IG report.
Turning a congressional office into a bedroom at night should not be allowed!
*The outlet notes that dozens of lawmakers reportedly sleep in their offices rather than rent an apartment, some sleep of mattresses, futons and murphy bed — meaning that night staff can possibly encounter lawmakers in states of undress.* @OurRevolution

Members of Congress allegedly sexually harassed night shift custodial staff as they cleaned their offices, according to a recent inspector general’s report on sexual harassment within the Architect of the Capitol.
The IG report, first reported by Roll Call, examines the Architect of the Capitol’s (AOC) response to sexual harassment complaints over the last 10 years. It includes allegations that workers endured sexual harassment by members of Congress and their staff,
“Staff have reported overhearing harassing conversations, being the target of harassment, and observing materials such as pornography, but do not speak up due to fear of losing their jobs,” the report says.
It found 57 incidents of sexual harassment reported since 2008, 44 percent of which it says were substantiated. The report notes that it is a relatively low number, but the perception remains that harassment is a problem. More

I noticed there’s never any talk about the Congressional Sexual Harassment Slush fund, where taxpayer money is used to make sure Congressional corruption never sees the light of day.
We need a full accounting of every penny spent from the congressional hush fund. Millions of taxpayers dollars were set aside for the debauchery of Congress and we deserve a detailed accounting of who got what and exactly why.
