Until They Name Names Lawmakers Guilty of Protecting Sexual Predator Peers Among Them
The Canada Free Press (CFP)  graphic of a man standing with his back to the camera flashing the White House says it all: Public officials, exposing their genitals and grabbing private parts—right on the House floor get away with it—their identities safeguarded by their own peers.

Some of the peers protecting the identities of sexual predators in Congress are female—even with the #MeToo Movement up and running.

Is the mainstream and social media-touted #MeToo Movement driven by a kind of get-even-with-your-enemy politics rather than the protection of all women from sexual predators?

Why have Congress members participating in sexual misconduct been allowed to draw from a $17 million hidden hush fund supplied by the Treasury to pay off their victims since 1995?

Some of these elected officials must have been guilty or the $17 million wouldn’t have been paid out to their accusers.

“According to the Washington Post, there were 235 complainants who received compensation totaling $15.2 million between 1997 and 2014. That’s more than one settlement per month for 17 years and nearly $1 million per year. We, the taxpayers, have no idea on whose behalf we’ve been paying to settle these sexual harassment claims. That’s wrong. (The Hill, Nov. 15, 17)

“We, the taxpayers who have been paying for more than two decades to quietly settle literally hundreds of sexual harassment claims against members of Congress and their staffs, have a right to know which members and staffers have made use of the hush money over the years. Going forward, taxpayers should have knowledge about how that fund is used.”

We’re not talking about the deeds of these sexual harassers before holding public office—but what they got away, and potentially still could be getting away with as duly elected officials!

Why is the media providing saturation coverage of salacious accusations that Donald Trump paid “hush” money from campaign finances to adult entertainer Stormy Daniels, who claims she had an affair with him, as their latest attempt to have him impeached, remaining mum on the open and bold indecent exposure of some elected officials right on the House floor?

How far will their peers go to protect the identities of lawmakers who flash their privates in public?

Most importantly, What kind of elected officials would want to keep the identities of sexual harassers a well-guarded state secret?

It is with the boldest of braggadocio that the mainstream and social media are so gung ho to portray the president as a criminal in a last-ditch attempt to impeach him and all but ignore that some $17 million was ripped off from the public purse to keep sexual harassers holding public office in their well-paid jobs.

How many Democrats and progressives pushing for Trump impeachment already paid off victims of sexual harassment from the $17 million?

And for that matter, how many media scribes and talking heads complicit with the Democrats engage in sexual misconduct that the public will never know about?

In the case of Congress it’s been going on for the last 10 to 15 years.

We can thank Jenny Beth Martin, writing for The Hill for knowing that the “hush” fund has been ‘managed’ by the “Office of Compliance,” which itself was created following the 1995 enactment of the Congressional Accountability Act (CAA), the first law enacted by the first Republican House in four decades.

Sexual misconduct in Congress is no joke.  Three female elected officials (one who lost her seat in 2018 Midterms),  recounted how elected male officials indecently exposed themselves on the House floor—without naming them, and still haven’t a year later.

None of the three women—eps. Linda Sánchez D-Ca),  and Jackie Speier (D-Ca), and former Rep. Barbara Comstock—were willing to expose the identities of the sexual predators,  claiming that even though some were still in office, they didn’t know who they actually were.

How is that even possible?

Genital-exposing politicians (GEP, for short) are said to come from both the Democrat and Republican parties, and, incredibly all continue to find protection in the system as it currently stands.

What possible good are any of the womens’  stories if the perpetrators get to go unnamed?

Members of the public at large “don’t feel comfortable” that lawmakers are keeping mum on the names of congressman who expose genitals and grab private parts on the House floor no matter the reason.

The reality is that until all Congress sexual harassers and Capitol Hill flashers are outed by name, the public can suspect all elected officials of dirty deeds.

And until they are outed by name, CFP will continue to use use the graphic of ‘The Flasher’  as a way to make their peers hound them out into the Public Square.

Update: 

Members Of Congress Will Now Have To Pay Out Of Pocket To Settle Sexual Harassment Claims

Members of Congress will no longer be able to rely on taxpayer money to settle sexual harassment and sexual misconduct claims, thanks to legislation passed just this week.

The Huffington Post reports that the final version of the bill passed Thursday, “sailing” through the House and Senate by unanimous consent, and will be on President Donald Trump’s desk awaiting a signature by the end of this week.—More….
