senate Bill S. 3749

Reforming the Congressional Sexual Harassment Claims Process & Making Members Personally Repay Settlements

Argument in favor

This long overdue, bipartisan bill makes clear that Congress has no tolerance for workplace sexual harassment or discrimination while protecting victims. It also ensures that lawmakers can’t use taxpayer funds to repay settlements stemming from their misconduct.

Well it’s about time they stopped using tax payer dollars to cover up their crimes against women.

I shouldn’t have to foot the bill for someone else’s crime.

Argument opposed

The existing process Congress uses to settle sexual harassment and workplace discrimination claims and its mandatory cooling of and mediation periods should be maintained. Lawmakers shouldn’t be personally responsible for paying settlements against them.

Because there had to be at least one moron who voted “Nay”.

I don’t think anyone can defend themselves from a false claim of sexual harassment and can’t support this legislation until it contains a provision for the person claiming victim status to reimburse the accused if they are found to be innocent.

Men, It's time to join the HE TOO and WHY NOT ME TOO ? movements to protect yourself against seductresses and liars like Blasé- Ford. False accusers should be jailed for life and made to pay reparations to the wrongly accused.

    Awesome. Now how about all the tax dollars that have already been paid. Will they be refunded and placed back into our deficit?

    Why should I be responsible for someone else’s mistakes and bad conduct? If a government worker sexually harasses someone let them suffer the consequences and pay for it financially as well.

    Yes, if the perp is made to repay out his pocket then he/she is more then likely not to do it again.

    Yes. Why would congresspersons not work under similar rules as I do. If I’m found to have sexually harassed anyone at work (or not at work), I would be fired yesterday and my employer sure as hell would not pay my settlement and/or legal fees!

    PASS the Senate Bill S.3749 Bipartisan Sexual Harassment Legislation I’m in support and recommend passage of the Senate Bill S.3749 bipartisan legislation, which is a long overdue bill, which makes it clear that Congress has no tolerance for workplace sexual harassment or discrimination while protecting victims. It also ensures that lawmakers can’t use taxpayer funds to repay settlements stemming from their misconduct. SneakyPete. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻. 12*13*18.....

    This is great. Will convicted politicians be terminated immediately AND required to pay? We can’t allow politicians to escape justice.

    Plain and simple, it's the right thing to do. Will members with older, settled claims also be required to reimburse the US Treasury?

    We DEMAND all the names, dates and dollar amounts that HAVE been paid from your slush fund that is funded by our taxpayer dollars! We already know Shifty Schiff from California used $400,000 to settle with a 19 year old young man! Who else????????????????

    Yes all members of GOV. & in the private sector should have to pay their own settlements for sexual abuse & attacks. It's no one else's responsibility. Sexual abuser's must be held accountable & brought to justice. Stop just paying off women. Abusers should also go to jail.
