Here we go again.
Yet another Democrat is being accused of sexual harassment.
This is out of control!
State Rep. Joseph Souki of Hawai’i is now stepping down.
Check this out…
From The Hill:
Hawaiian state Rep. Joseph Souki (D) is set to resign following an investigation into allegations of unwanted sexual behavior toward multiple women, according to The Associated Press.
Souki, a former speaker of the state House of Representatives, must resign by March 30 and will not be allowed to seek elected office for another two years, according to a settlement announced Wednesday by the Hawaii State Ethics Commission.
Here’s ANOTHER story of a different Democrat busted for sexual harassment…
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reporters the event was canceled because Everson got cold feet, and he had added in a Nov. 29 statement that he would no longer represent her.
Where is the mainstream media?
Oh, right. They’re busy covering the gun control rally in DC!
