From The Economist:
Jackie Speier, a Democratic congresswoman from California, says she knows of two sitting members of Congress who have “engaged in sexual harassment”; Barbara Comstock, a Republican congresswoman from Virginia, says a member of Congress exposed himself to a young woman who worked for him. According to a survey by CQ Roll Call, our sister company, in 2016, one in six women working in Congress has been harassed. Four in ten said sexual harassment is a problem. Ms Speier has introduced a bill to overhaul a tangled and onerous reporting procedure.
I don’t think that our political parties are vetting to any reasonable standard. The founders overestimated the enthusiasm that the states would have for choosing ethical methods for selecting representatives.
Would you buy a used car from your representative?
Would you trust your representative with your underage daughter?
Is your representative actually working in your behalf?
While the media is spending most of its’ time on sexual harassment claims, the congress is passing a bill that will benefit the rich at the expense of the rest of us, and no one is paying much attention, since sex is so much more interesting. I really don’t care who whatever politician is screwing, as long as it isn’t the entire Middle Class of this country.
@cap965 – nonsense. He calls ‘em as he sees ’em. The Republicans are in power; they are the target of opportunity. Political cartoonists speak truth to power when they’re at their best — and Davies is one of the best.
Good panel Mr. Davies,….. That said… They’re going to pass that soul sucking text Bill this afternoon! 500 some odd Pages written behind closed doors in the greatest secrecy. The only things we do know about it for sure is that it will destroy the middle class now and in the future! We will become a country of the 1% rich and the poor poverty-stricken 99%. The irony of that is that the rich will no longer have a source of income because you can’t get blood from a stone or money from someone who has none.
it is about time both sides get blamed.
How many parties are even thinking of doing anything about it?
About the only thing the men of both parties agree on. Get them out of there, we don’t need those pigs making decisions for us and our families.
