Here we go again. Yet another Congressional Democrat is being accused of sexual harassment. This is out of control!
From Fox News:
A former congressional aide Friday accused Rep. Bobby Scott, D-Va., of sexually harassing her and claimed she was fired and blackballed from further work on Capitol Hill when she refused his advances.
Reese Everson, a former Congressional Black Caucus Fellow, alleged that Scott touched her leg and body without permission and promised to advance her career if she let him flirt with her.
Everson discussed her allegations on an episode of Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” last month, but did not identify Scott as the lawmaker who allegedly harassed her.
Politico has more:
“I absolutely deny this allegation of misconduct,” Scott said in a statement. “I have never sexually harassed anyone.”
Everson wasn’t fired by Scott’s office, according to an aide, but rather terminated by the CBCF after being released from the House Financial Services Committee and placed on a performance improvement plan.
Everson and her lawyer, Jack Burkman, held a news conference in Arlington, Virginia. The pair originally scheduled a news conference in late November. At the time, Burkman told reporters the event was canceled because Everson got cold feet, and he had added in a Nov. 29 statement that he would no longer represent her.
Will Scott step down?
Will Congressional Democrat leaders force Scott to resign, like they probably did with Rep. John Conyers and Sen. Al Franken?
Time will tell…
