In many ways, this week has been a banner week for Congress in tackling sexual harassment.
Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) is resigning over numerous harassment allegations. Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) is retiring over numerous allegations. Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) announced his retirement on Thursday over an ethics investigation. And Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX) will face an ethics probe over harassment allegations.
Rumor has it on Capitol Hill, though, that this is just the beginning of the reckoning in Congress over sexual harassment and sexual assault.
Michael Trujillo, a Democratic strategist, tweeted on Thursday that CNN and The Washington Post are working on a story “exposing 20-30 congressional members [for] sexual harassment.”[contentcards url=”https://ntknetwork.com/the-reckoning-rumor-has-it-reporters-may-reveal-40-congressmen-guilty-of-harassment/” target=”_blank”]
