U.S. Congresswoman Kathleen Rice walked right out of a meeting today.

The meeting of the House Democratic Caucus was addressing all the sexual allegations.

She wants Congressman Conyers to resign.

She is very upset how the "Caucus" is handling things.


A Democratic congresswoman walked out of meeting on sexual harassment, saying, 'I don't have time for meetings that aren't real'


Rep. Kathleen Rice, the New York Democrat, walked out of the House Democratic Caucus meeting on Wednesday morning before it concluded, citing frustration with her colleagues' inability to take a harder stance on sexual-harassment allegations against Rep. John Conyers, the Michigan Democrat.

According to The Washington Post's Dave Weigel, Rice abruptly left the meeting, telling reporters outside, "I don't have time for meetings that aren't real."

If she doesn't have time for meetings that aren't real, what is she doing on Capitol Hill in the first place? Nothing she does there is real.

What is needed is full disclosure of the politicians who have used the slash fund to settle sexual Harassment claims. The politicians in Congress would be against that for obvious reasons.

How do We The People get that list? Executive Order? Or what?

It’s just crazy corruption.

The politicians don't work for you, they work for lobbyists. Your opinion is not important until election time.

Good thought but I know that FOAs have been ignored in the past and when finally released the requested documents are heavily redacted.

Yes! How DO WE THE PEOPLE get that list?! We oughta know what our tax dollars are doing. They probably made it so that they can't tell us the names of the Congessmen who settled without naming the victims, so that they would never be outed.

We need to demand those names, or do whatever it is we need to do that would release them. Anyone know?

Use their tools against them. It needs a hashtag, it needs to go viral, every citizen needs to agree to hold their law makers responsible next election if they don’t....

Easy

of course a democrat doesn`t want to waste their time with sexual harassment issues in the senate, sexual harassment issues are only for campaigning to get re-elected after getting re-elected the democrats don`t give a # about you ladies you`re on your own.

It's time to call JUDICIAL WATCH. They were able to get a lot of Hillary's documents, without anyone there being murdered. The FORCE is with Judicial Watch.

Check out their front-page headline: www.judicialwatch.org...

Would a FOA request get that?



WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A bipartisan group of lawmakers in the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday introduced legislation requiring the disclosure of sexual harassment case settlements involving members of Congress and their staffers.

***SNIP***

Under current practice, the names of lawmakers and aides who settle sexual harassment cases at taxpayer expense have not been divulged.

The bipartisan “Congressional Accountability and Hush Fund Act” was introduced with at least 21 co-sponsors. It would require disclosure within 30 days of all settlement payments, the reason for the payment and nature of the allegation, as well as the lawmakers and staffers implicated.

The public disclosure of lawmakers would be retroactive under the bill and any payments as a result of settlements would be the responsibility of members of Congress and staff involved, instead
of taxpayers.

Over the years, more than $15 million in taxpayer dollars have been paid out in an array of settlement claims, including those involving sexual harassment, noted Representative Ron DeSantis, a Republican and one of the bill’s authors.

Separate legislation has been introduced on tightening procedures for Congress handling sexual harassment cases. On Wednesday the full House approved a resolution requiring lawmakers and their aides to take courses aimed at preventing harassment.

Don't kid yourself, the Republicans are just as bad with sexual harassment of women by members of Congress. It's not a one Party problem. Its a sickness of Politicians in general. Now is the time to get all of them publicized so they dont run for re-election in 18.
