Looks like another politician is getting outed.

This time it's U.S. Congressman Alcee Hastings.

Apparently big money was paid to a victim.

Guess where the money came from !!

Must Resign Now: $220,000 Taxpayer Dollars Used To Settle (D) Rep. Alcee Hastings Sexual Harrassment Case

A former female staffer for a congressional commission received $220,000 as part of a settlement from a lawsuit she filed alleging Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., sexually harassed her.

The former staffer, Winsome Packer, worked for the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe, also known as the Helsinki Commission, and accused Hastings of “unwelcome touching” and “unwelcome sexual advances” in a lawsuit filed against him, according to Roll Call.

Packer also alleged Hastings threatened to fire her for objecting to his behavior.



Exclusive: Taxpayers Paid $220K to Settle Case Involving Rep. Alcee Hastings

The Treasury Department paid $220,000 in a previously undisclosed agreement to settle a lawsuit alleging sexual harassment that involved Florida Democrat Alcee L. Hastings, according to documents obtained by Roll Call.

Isn't sexual harassment only the biological urge to reproduce with as many partners as possible?
Evolution.

But.....
He is shocked to hear that taxpayer dollars were used to settle her lawsuit. He had no idea that it had happened until he heard it in the news.

And... he says that he never harassed her.

Sounds like they had a system in place for the use of plausible denial.

And this was paid out through yet another government entity.
How many different ways do they have to pay off the people that they sexually harass???

... Winsome Packer? ...

Who names their child that? That's a sexual harassment or porn career waiting to happen. *facepalm*

I have been waiting for some of these names to come out. Any politician (dont care about affiliations) who has taken tax payer funds to settle a lawsuit such as this one needs to pay the money back to the people, with interest, and step down.

Unbelievable! What a corrupt bunch of SOBs.

This payout was made to Ms. Winsome Packer in 2014 by the Treasury Department.....not the usual shush/slush fund set aside for these kinds of things. Hastings is saying he didn't even know the payoff was made?!

Jack Lew was in charge of Treasury at that time. hmmmm.

a reply to: xuenchen That has been known for awhile. You bringing this up now just shows a reach to distract. You must really be running out of material. If you need more income based off of threads I can help.

a reply to: xuenchen Also how about we ask ourselves why OUR money is utilized in the amount of $17,000,000.00 to fix the problems created by our leaders? We keep acting like sheep with no dog.

It just came out in Roll Call today.
Do you have links to earlier stories about the US Treasury paying off the woman?
It was news to me.

I have to wonder if Jack Lew's Treasury Dept. paid off anybody else we don't yet know about.......if that's really what these funds were used for. I swear...the American Taxpayer is treated like a money tree to be plucked anytime a politician feels like it.

a reply to: thesaneone Of course I am lol These threads are pure propaganda. The fact you can't see that speaks words to your blindness. I do this because someone has to be the arguing person in order to create debate.

Obama flew billions to Iran without any oversight.
Who knows what all our tax dollars are paying for.

Kind of makes you angry when you see that money coming out of your paycheck....
