Members of Congress who use taxpayer money to settle sexual harassment suits should be required to pay that money back before they take high-paying lobbying jobs — and this bill would be a great mechanism for ensuring that happens.
This bill is going to apply to very few members of Congress. There’s no point to passing this — public pressure and last December’s overhaul of Congress’ sexual harassment rules to require members to pay sexual harassment suits out of pocket are sufficient.
